The message comes just a few days after the name’s of Elon’s 19 month old twins with Neuralnk executive Shivon Zilis were revealed.

“Hey, I wud prefer to not breathe any more life into this current press cycle but I want to de-escalate the narrative atm,” she wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Sept. 10. “I spoke with Shivon at length finally, which was long overdue. This wasn’t her fault, plz don’t be angry at her! We respect each other a lot and we’re excited to become friends and have the kids grow up together.”

The singer also went on to apologize to biographer Walter Isaacson, who shared a photo of Elon and Shivon without the twins.

Grimes previously stated that the situation was “utterly ripping my family apart.”

“I truly apologize for responding to Walter like that,” Grimes, 35, continued. “As u can imagine, that was a very gut level reaction to a thing that has been very hard for me. Communication about the twins wasn’t handled super well in the past, but I now totally understand what happened and totally forgive the situation.”

She also went on to admit, “Women are so often pitted against each other. Speaking with Shivon, it’s very evident she’s an amazing human and we both just want what’s best for our kids.”

Shortly after Grimes shared her note, Shivon, 37, confirmed that all was well between the two.

“At the end of the day it all ended up for the best!” she responded. “Thank you for taking the time to really connect and understand each other. So glad we had such a wonderful talk, was insanely overdue. You’re a total badass and I respect you very much as well. I can’t wait for kiddo play date and congrats on baby Tau as well!”

Before welcoming kids with Grimes and Shivon, the Tesla CEO founder, 52, previously welcomed six children, including twins, with ex-wife Justine Musk
