Not Very Fatherly Father of the Week: Elon Musk’s Father Errol: Who Fathered His Step-Daughter’s Baby

“Creepy” is a broad term that should not be used to describe all weird dudes out there because there are various levels of “creepy-ness”.

On one end of the spectrum, you have the harmless weird co-worker who simply looms over your shoulder a couple “Mississippi’s” too long while you’re typing in your password first thing in the morning.


On the other end of the spectrum is the convict whose knees you would break if they come within 50 yards of your child.

Technology mogul Elon Musk’s father Errol is far from the harmless end of the spectrum.

He even looks like a douche!

Errol recently revealed that, not only had he fathered a child with his step-daughter (who he met when she was 4-years-old), but that it was “God’s plan.”

(In defense of Tesla and SpaceX founder (and geek boy man-crush heart throb) Elon Musk, he has nothing to do with his father and has even referred to him as “a terrible human being” in a November 2017 Rolling Stone interview.)

The 72-year-old senior Musk told the Sunday Times of London that he fathered a son with 30-year-old Jana Bezuidenhout, the daughter of his former wife Heide. Jana was 4-years-old when Errol married her mother.

So 10-month-old Elliot Rush Musk is Elon’s nephew/ half brother I guess. Without a flowchart, I have a hard time with complex family trees. Unless it is Star Wars!

Apparently it is ok with Errol though because she lived away from family for part of her childhood. Sounds like odd rationale to me…

“We were lonely, lost people,” he said. “One thing led to another — you can call it God’s plan or nature’s plan.”

I’m not so sure mother nature intended man to father children with their own step children they met while pre-school aged…
