According to the publication, Brin filed for divorce from Shanahan in January of this year.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Brin provided $500,000 to Tesla during the financial crisis of 2008, “when it struggled to increase production.” In turn, Musk gave Brin a Tesla SUV in 2015.
It is noted that Brin’s lawyer declined to comment on this matter. Elon Musk himself also declined to comment.
