Elon Musk and his seldom-seen son were spotted enjoying the 124th Army Navy Game this Saturday amidst the billionaire’s ongoing custody battle with the child’s mother, singer Grimes. Three-year-old X Æ A-Xii perched atop his father’s shoulders as they witnessed the Army Black Knights secure a 17-11 victory over the Navy Midshipmen, marking the conclusion of the season.
Musk shared their experience with a tweet reading “ARMY NAVY,” accompanied by a video capturing the stadium’s top view. In a subsequent reply, the Tesla CEO declared his allegiance to Team Army. Musk appeared in high spirits as he navigated Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts, carrying his eldest child from the “Oblivion” singer.
The father-and-son duo engaged with the Army Mules mascot and joined the Army crowd for the game. This public outing unfolds just two months after Grimes, also known as Claire Boucher, filed a lawsuit against Musk for parental rights concerning their three children.
Musk, 52, and Grimes, 35, share custody of X Æ A-Xii, born in May 2020, and Exa Dark Sideræl, born via surrogate in December 2021. In a surprising revelation in September, the couple confirmed the birth of their third child, a boy named Techno Mechanicus, affectionately called Tau.
It is worth noting that Musk is a father to eight additional children with two different women. Meanwhile, the Tesla CEO is concurrently facing challenges within his social media company, where he recently faced criticism for berating advertisers who withdrew from his platform, X, due to concerns over antisemitic content.
