Elon Musk’s Wiki- Elon Musk’s Biography
Elon Musk’s Retired electromechanical engineer Errol Musk, 77, made the stunning revelation after the release this week of bestselling author Walter Isaacson’s new biography of his son, simply titled Elon Musk. The father of the world’s richest man is portrayed in the book as an often cruel character who subjected his son to “mental torture.”
According to Isaacson, Elon choked up as he told him of his dad: “He sure knew how to make anything terrible.”
The writer claims that Elon, 52, and his younger brother Kimbal, 50, view their estranged father as a “volatile fabulist, regularly spinning tales that are larded with fantasies, sometimes calculated and at other times delusional.”
He also says that Elon was “regularly beaten by bullies” while growing up in South Africa. Errol disputes that and insists that Elon was attacked in a one-off incident that came “out of the blue.”
In the aftermath of the book’s publication, the elder Musk gave his version of what his own violent childhood was like.
He told The U.S. Sun: “My friend Ronald Coco got shot dead robbing a bottle store called The Florian. She was grandmother.
“Ronald had the idea to get into the bottle store from the lane.
“We all watched how expertly he climbed up and got in through the roof.
“The alarm went off. Cops came. Ronald was shot dead immediately.
“We all waited and then watched his little body come out under a blanket.
“His toe caps and gray socks stuck out. It’s something you never forget.
“There was no mercy then.

“You’d show up at school or home with bruises, blood, a black eye, and no one said a word at school or home.
“But tear your clothes, break your shoes, lose your schoolbag – these were serious because they cost money and you had no way to pay.
“It meant a thrashing at home and it would mean trouble at school for being ‘out of uniform.’”
Errol says the incident happened during his early childhood while growing up in South Africa’s largest city, Johannesburg.
He cited it as the most extreme example of how tough it was growing up there in the 1950s.
Errol said: “I had a very poor upbringing requiring street smartness at grade one level.
“The school I started at in Johannesburg catered to a broad selection, from the very poor who lived in a room to those who lived in a flat.
“We lived in a room. Adults lived hand to mouth then. No one had money.
“I was taken to school in the Hillbrow area of the city on my first day, but after that I had to go myself on foot. Today, that would be considered crazy.
“Hillbrow had many weird things in 1952 – thousands of immigrants and refugees from World War 2, unemployed people, gangs, truant school boys. You name it.
“Getting to school and avoiding what we called the Spes Bona boys and the Turks – who were probably Lebanese – was a mission.
“If you got caught they would take what you had.
“If you had nothing, they would piss or s**t in your school bag.
“So having something was important. “I got away once because I had a little plastic pink charm.”
Errol and Elon both appear to have eerily similar memories of how traumatic it was growing up in South Africa.
Isaacson’s book describes how Elon and Kimbal once got off a train on their way to an anti-apartheid music concert in the 1980s and had to “wade through a pool of blood next to a dead person with a knife still sticking out of his brain. ”
In September last year, Errol told The U.S. Sun he had shot two intruders dead in South Africa in 1998 while his then six-year-old daughter Ali clung to his leg.
Earlier this week Errol slammed Isaacson’s new biography for portraying him as a villain with “demonic powers.”
Last week he denied Isaacson’s claims that Elon flies into “demon mode” when he is at his most productive.
He also told The U.S. Sun earlier this month that he fears that his firstborn son could be assassinated for going up against the U.S. government
He previously hit back at claims in a bombshell report in The New Yorker that his son is on drugs and suffering from mental health issues.
Errol told The U.S. Sun in June that he believes Elon has put himself in a “no-win situation” with a proposed cage fight with Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
He also said the “humiliation would be total” for Elon if he loses against Zuckerberg.
Errol also slammed an AI-generated pic of his son as “totally inaccurate” and shared childhood photos to prove his point.
In April, Errol revealed details about his claim to have once bought a share in an emerald business in Zambia, which Elon has disputed.
Earlier this year, Errol told The U.S. Sun that his son is a “force for good” who also believed that the internet would have been invented by the year 1900 if Napoleon Bonaparte had n’t been defeated.
Last year, The U.S. Sun revealed Errol’s claim that he had fathered a child with his stepdaughter, Jana Bezuidenhout and that he had been asked to donate sperm to impregnate high-class women in Colombia.
