A shirtless Elon Musk was seen soaking up the sun aboard a luxury yacht in Mykonos, Greece, on Sunday.
The multibillionaire was with a small group that included newlywed pals Ari Emanuel and Sarah Staudinger as they sailed the Aegean Sea on the “Zeus” — an almost $US20,000-per-week motor yacht that can accommodate six guests in over three cabins and comes with a professional crew.
The pictures caused quite a stir on social media, with hundreds of people making an array of comments – mostly very unkind – about the mogul and his physique.
Musk himself responded to the uproar on his Twitter account, posting a reference to freeing the nipple.
“Haha damn, maybe I should take off my shirt more often … free the nip!!” he wrote.
Musk, 51, boarded the swanky boat wearing a plain white T-shirt, black swim trunks, dark sunglasses, a black baseball cap and matching flip-flops.
The Tesla CEO soon stripped down to just his bathing suit and took a dive into the ocean. Once back on the yacht, Endeavour CEO Emanuel — long held to be the inspiration for fictional Hollywood agent Ari Gold in “Entourage” — hosed him down.
Musk was later seen enjoying a cocktail before the group headed out to explore the island.
The SpaceX founder — who recently confirmed to Page Six exclusively that he had welcomed his 10th child — did not seem the least bit bothered by Twitter’s massive lawsuit against him.
Musk first agreed to buy the social media website for $US44 billion in April but pulled out of the deal earlier this month on the belief the platform may be lying about what percentage of its users are bots.
In their filing, Twitter’s attorneys described Musk’s claim as a “bad faith” attempt to walk away from the agreement.
In response, Musk called the company’s suit “meritless” and told a judge that he needs until next year to formally respond.
The business tycoon informed us earlier this month that he had quietly welcomed twins with his Neuralink executive, Shivon Zilis, in November 2021, adding that he had no plans to stop procreating.
When congratulated on the newest additions to his brood, he replied, “Thanks,” followed by, “Bravo to big families.”
When asked how many kids he would like to have, Musk said, “As many as I am able to spend time with and be a good father.”
