Singer Grimes raised eyebrows after claiming she simply couldn’t afford to buy a house without ex Elon Musk’s financial help.
The “Genesis” hitmaker, who shares two children with the Tesla and SpaceX CEO, took to Twitter on Monday to ask her followers to join her in petitioning against rising house prices in Texas.
“My fellow Texans! Petitions can feel useless but I guarantee local politicians are taking these seriously,” she tweeted.
“Plz sign to reduce housing costs in Austin. There’s effective legislation on the table here but we need public support.”
But despite her good intentions, some followers criticized the singer for petitioning for something that they claimed didn’t affect her.
“Grimes you are set, your opinion on ‘the housing market’ is invalid,” wrote one Twitter user.
It wasn’t long before the mom-of-two responded, writing, “First of all I couldn’t afford to buy a house that fits my kids in Austin atm without help from their dad which is INSANE cuz I’m a p[retty] successful artist.”
“Secondly, these aren’t my opinions, I’ve just agreed to help out some actual experts/ policy makers,” she added.
The critic doubled-down, adding, “That’s what I’m meaning, their dad will help and get it done. You’re set.”
It seems as though Grimes isn’t the only one Musk supports financially.
The billionaire recently revealed that he and his brother, Kimbal, have provided financial backing for their father Errol since he “ran out of money” decades ago.
