They soon got back together and tied the knot again in 2013. But in 2016, the pair divorced once again. At the time of the divorce, Musk said: “We took some time apart for several months to see if absence makes the heart grow fonder, and unfortunately, it did not. I still love her, but I’m not in love with her. And I can’t really give her what she wants.”
