ELON Musk’s father has claimed he had an unplanned second child with his 35-year-old stepdaughter in a bombshell interview.
Errol Musk, 76, told The Sun he had a daughter with Jana Bezuidenhout, 35, three years ago.
It emerged in 2018 that Errol had baby Elliot Rush, nicknamed Rushi and now five, with Jana, who is 41 years his junior and whom he had raised since she was four.
Tech CEO Elon reportedly went “crazy” when he found out his father, a South African engineer, had a child with Jana, who lived with him growing up.
Errol was married to Jana’s mother, Heide, for 18 years and had two children together.
Now Errol has told The Sun that his alleged second child with Jana is “unplanned” but is living with her after the birth of their son.
The tech CEO’s father said: “I haven’t checked her DNA. But she looks like my other daughters. She looks like Rose and Tosca mixed together.
“She looks exactly like Rushi and she acts like him. So it’s pretty obvious, you know.”
He added: “She wasn’t planned. But I mean, we were living together. She [Jana] stayed here about 18 months after Rushi was born.
“But I realized she was two generations behind while her mother was a generation behind when I married her.
“So any man who marries a woman, even if you’re feeling very playful, it’s going to be nice for a while. But there’s a big gap… And that gap is going to show.
“I married her mother when she was 25 and I was 45. She was probably one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen in my life.”
Errol said he no longer lives with Jana but confirmed they “have a lot of affection for each other”.
He added: “But the thing is, it’s not practical. She’s 35 on the next birthday. So she gets along. So if I’m still around, she might end up with me. It’s difficult.
“I mean, I would much rather have them here. But Jana came and spent a few days here about six months ago. And the kids were starting to annoy me.
“So I miss them as soon as they’re gone.”
As for having more children, Errol said: “The only thing we are on Earth for is to reproduce.
“If I could have another child, I would. I see no reason not to.
“If I had thought about it, Elon or Kimbal wouldn’t exist.”
But Errol admits his other daughters were “shocked” by his relationship with Jana because “to them she was their sister”.
He added, “And they still don’t like it. They still feel a little scary about it, because it’s their sister. Their half-sister.”
And Errol said he was no stranger to women claiming to have had his child.
He said, “I have about six people, women who are claiming their child is my child right now. Obviously, they are opportunists.
“There was a period in Johannesburg in the 80s where I was going out with a different woman every night. I had plenty of dates.
“So it’s entirely conceivable that one of them could come back and say, it’s your child. It’s possible.
“But nothing authentic has been presented to me. But I have a lot of people clamoring.”
Speaking to The Sun earlier this month, Errol appeared to hint at his son’s political ambitions.
He also joked about his son’s number of children after the tech titan appeared to confirm he had twins with one of his top executives.
Errol said he struggled to “keep track” of his grandchildren.
It emerged on July 6, 2022, that Musk had welcomed two more children with Neuralink executive Shivon Zilis.
Shivon, 36, is the third woman the entrepreneur has had children with.
And Errol claimed his son was called a very offensive insult by teachers when he was seven.
Musk’s father has revealed details about his relationship with Elon and the tycoon’s mother, Maye, 74.
He denies claims that he has had a bad relationship with his son for years.
In a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone, Elon described his father as a “terrible human being” and said his childhood was “painful and isolated”.
One of the reasons for the bitter rift is believed to be that Errol fathered love child Rushi with Jana, who he described as a “one-time mistake”.
Meanwhile, Elon’s strained relationship with one of his children was thrown into the spotlight last month after the teenager filed a petition to change her sex.
The legal document revealed that former Xavier Alexander Musk, 18, wanted to change his gender identity from male to female and be known as Vivian Jenna Wilson.
She said she was changing her name because she “no longer lives or wishes to be related to my birth father in any way.”
On Father’s Day, Musk tweeted that he loved all of his children “so much”.
When approached by The Sun, Jana declined to comment.
