, that could likely use an update. Aright, let's get into this video. First things first, a little recap:

Elon

Musk

was born on June 28, 1971 in South Africa. His father an Engineer, Pilot and Sailor and his mother a model and dietician... money was good but his parents split up when he was young and to this day he doesn't speak with or about his father. A quick google search about dad brought up some questionable headlines but let's just move on from this...

and get back to

Elon

. When it came to computers, young

Elon

was a child prodigy coding at 10 and developing his own video game by 12 which he sold for $500. In an interview he described his childhood as miserable, mainly laying the blame on his evil father. Fast forward through elementary school and high school he made his way to Canada attending the prestigious Queens University before getting entry into America and attending Stanford to pursue a PhD in energy physics. This was in 1992 and with the internet boom taking off and televisions use to roll out commercials like this.

Elon

wasn't about to miss his big opportunity to make some real cash and he dropped out of Stanford after 2 days and got to work on his own internet startup Zip2 alongside his brother. Essentially, from what I understand, it was an online city guide. 7 years later in 1999 a division of Compaq Computer bought Zip2 for $307 million in cash and $34 million in stock options. By then the money was starting to come in and he was starting to enjoy the perks of his success. Next up in, 1999,

Musk

co-founded X.com, an online financial services/payments company which led to the creation of PayPal. In 2002 PayPal was acquired by eBay for $1.5

billion

in stock.

Elon

became a savy investor putting his money into Everdream Corporation in 1998 before Dell acquired it in 2007. He also invested in the artificial intelligence company DeepMind Technology prior to a 2014 buyout by Google. According to filings in his...

divorce trial, he had roughly $48 million in income from his investments between 2005 and 2008 But he sunk a ton of money back into what was to come next. From there,

Musk

founded his third company, SpaceX in 2002 with the intention of building spacecraft for commercial space travel. Next was Tesla Motors, an automobile company dedicated to producing affordable, mass-market electric cars, which

Musk

cofounded in 2003.

Elon

Musk

owns 54 percent of rocket maker SpaceX which was valued at $34

billion

as of May 2019.

Musk

also owns 22 percent of Tesla which includes 33 million shares and 2.1 million exercisable options & as well know business is booming. But with that said,

Elon

states that he works on average 100 hours per week and often sleeps on the floor at the office. When he wasn't fallen down on the floor like a Sim let's see where he likes to kick his legs up. The tech

aire owns five houses in Los Angeles—all of them inside the gated community of Bel-Air.

Musk

’s main residence. He paid $17 million in 2012 for the 20,248-square-foot palace he calls home. The house also has a gym, a pool and a wine cellar. It has a tennis court for quick games of doubles, a massive home theatre where he plays Fortnite against PewDiePie. He's actually given a tour of his humble abode. The next house he bought was the ranch house across the street from his mansion for $6.75 million in October 2013. Previous to this, famed Hollywood actor Gene Wilder had lived there...
for 30 years. RIP.

Elon

had the property renovated into a private school for his 5 children. From there on out he began buying up his neighbours. In 2015 he bought two more propertise, one for $4.3 Million and another for $20 Mill. In 2016 he dropped $24.250 and in 2019 he dropped $6.4 Million. This one is a two-story home he got in an off-listing sale. It's 3,943-square-feet of living space with 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. Kinda looks like a place you might stumble across in rural Alabama or Virginia, not the hills of LA but he'll probably bulldoze it when he needs to build The Avengers base camp sometime in the future. It's also good to be the ex wife of

Musk

. Talulah Riley was living in his four-bedroom, three-bath home that overlooks the city of Los Angeles which he sold for $3.9 million earlier this year.

Elon

is a busy man who needs to travel all over the globe. For his travels Tesla helped him out with a $70 million Gulfstream G650ER, and in 2018 alone he logged over 150,000 miles flying all over the United States, Europe, and Asia to a tune of $700K of travel. Strangely enough, the plane does a lot of flights in LA just to get him from his home to work. I heard LA traffic is bad, but this is next level. No wonder he wants to drill a hole. He's also gotta travel to his various business. Tesla’s headquarters in Palo Alto and car-making factory in Fremont. Then there is SpaceX’s headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif., and the battery-producing...
Gigafactory outside Reno, Nev. The man spends a lot of time in the air. On the ground he's now of course only seen in a Tesla but before all fame he was a bit of a car collector. When he was 17 he was given a book of classic convertibles. The convertible he liked best from the book was the E-Type Jaguar, so he told himself if he ever could afford it he would buy one. When his initial bonus came in for Zip2 he tookk the 40K and spent $35K on a 1967 E-Type Jaguar. After

Musk

sold PayPal, he bought a McLaren F1 which cost him $1 Million

dollar

s. A lot of money for a car that he ended up totalling. He had it for several years before he totaled in a crash that nearly cost him his

life

. What made matters worse is that he had no accident insurance. A splurge purchase was on the Lotus Esprit car from James Bond's "The Spy Who Loved Me" for $886,000. Speaking on this he said: It was amazing as a little kid in South Africa to watch James Bond in 'The Spy Who Loved Me' drive his Lotus Esprit off a pier, press a button and have it transform into a submarine underwater. I was disappointed to learn that it can't actually transform. What I'm going to do is upgrade it with a Tesla electric powertrain and try to make it transform for real He also owned an Audi Q7, which actually inspired him to include falcon wing doors on the Tesla Model S. He also owned a Hamann BMW M5 and a Porshe 911.
