Tesla CEO Elon Musk expresses his disgust about how even "trivial articles" about him generate a lot of clicks. Coming a day after it was reported that he had a brief affair with Google co-founder Sergey Brin's wife Nicole Shanahan, Musk said he would try his best to be heads down and focus on doing useful things for the civilisation.

"The amount of attention on me has gone supernova, which super sucks. Unfortunately, even trivial articles about me generate a lot of clicks:(Will try my best to be heads down focused on doing useful things for civilisation," the SpaceX owner wrote on Twitter.

A day ago, Musk denied the report about his affair as completely baseless, adding that he and Brin are friends who attended a party together the night before. He said he had seen Shanahan only twice in three years and there was nothing romantic between the two.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, Musk and Shanahan had a brief affair in early December in Miami, following which Brin, 48, filed for divorce (in January). This also just ended the years-long friendship between Musk, 51, and Brin, who helped support the electric carmaker during the 2008 financial crisis.

Musk, who is engaged in a widely publicised bitter legal battle with Twitter months after it was announced that he would buy the microblogging platform, is frequently in the news for his personal life. Amid Musk's multiple statements about increasing the world population, it was recently reported that he became the father to twins born to a senior executive at his artificial intelligence startup Neuralink, totalling his count of children to 10.

Another of his companies, SpaceX, paid an employee US$250,000 (RM1.1mil) to settle a claim she was sexually harassed by Musk in 2016. – Hindustan Times, New Delhi/Tribune News Service
