Sergey Brin's wife, Nicole Shanahan, denies having an affair with Elon Musk

The lawyer for Nicole Shanahan, the estranged wife of Google co-founder Sergey Brin, has issued a statement denying the allegations that his client had an affair with billionare Elon Musk.

"Make no mistake, any suggestion that Nicole had an affair with Elon Musk is not only an outright lie but also defamatory," said Bryan Freedman, Shanahan's attorney.

When did the alleged affair took place? This comes after the Wall Street Journal published a report that claimed that Musk and Shanahan had an affair during December 2021.

The pair presumably were together after they saw each other at Miami's Art Basel. During that time, Brin and Shanahan were separated but still lived together.

The Tesla CEO has denied the allegations as well and even took to Twitter to post a picture alongside Brin.

He also told the New York Post that the WSJ's report that he dropped to his knees to apologize was false.

He also added that he thinks that he receives too much attention from the media on his personal life, so he will try to keep a lower profile.
