The pictures circulated around the web after the New York Post distributed it.
Earlier last month, Elon Musk, who recently reclaimed the title of world’s wealthiest person, reported that he and the performer were separating following three years of being together, saying, “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently, and are on great terms.”
In the interim, Grimes was spotted flipping through Karl Marx’s unequivocally anti-capitalistic “Communist Manifesto” in her first public appearance on Friday since the split.
However, things probably won’t be by and large as they appear as Grimes composed on her Instagram account, “I was really stressed when paparazzi wouldn’t stop following me this week but then I realized it was opportunity to troll.”
She even disclosed that she is still living with Elon despite the split, “Full disclosure, I’m still living with E and I am not a communist…”
“Although there are some very smart ideas in this book — but personally I’m more interested in a radical decentralized UBI that I think could potentially be achieved thru crypto and gaming but I haven’t ironed that idea out enough yet to explain it.”
This isn’t even the first time this week Grimes has messed with tabloids about communism — she even messaged Page Six, “I’ll be colonizing [one of Jupiter’s moons] Europa separately from Elon for the lesbian space commune.”
Grimes and Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, met over Twitter. The pair began to date in May 2018 before the birth of their son X Æ A-Xii Musk.
Reactions to Grimes Reads Karl Marx After Split From Billionaire
I hope that Grimes posing reading Marx sends a lot of young, impressionable fans on a journey that gets quickly to where they realise why she's just a poser and ends with them helping build a world that her ex husband and son will have to flee in a rocket— Spooky Scary Sophia 🌈🐙🧙♀️ (@theymerSophie) October 2, 2021
Grimes is reading Marx because her ex is rich. Most people read Marx because their parents are— jana (@paranoidlikes) October 3, 2021
grimes pretending to read marx legit reminded me of my first english lit 101 class where this guy came in with his head buried in a copy of the brothers karamazov to flex only to fall down the steps leading down the lecture hall— Cryptid Twink ✨🎃 (@Kryptids) October 2, 2021
