Elon Musk‘s wife, British actress Talulah Riley, has filed for divorce from the billionaire entrepreneur making this the couple’s second divorce.
The couple, who originally married in 2010, first divorced in 2012 after two years of marriage but re-married 18 months later. In December 2014, Musk petitioned for divorce but withdrew seven months later, according to The Daily Mail. A joint statement by Musk and 30-year-old Riley says they have both decided to end their marriage and will remain friends.
As reported in Fortune, during their first divorce Musk tweeted Riley that they had “an amazing four years” pointing at a friendly parting.
It was an amazing four years. I will love you forever. You will make someone very happy one day
The billionaire’s relationship with Riley has been described as wild and tempestuous even from the very start after first meeting in London in 2008 shortly after his divorce from first wife, Justine Wilson. After only several weeks, Musk proposed to Riley, then 22 marking the start to their tumultuous relationship.
The co-founder of Paypal has gone on to help start the electric car company Tesla Motors and the private space firm SpaceX adding to his vast array of business ventures. The couple had a prenuptial agreement for their first divorce with Musk agreeing to give her $16 million in cash and other assets at that time. However it is unknown if this will be the same this time around as Musk is now estimated to be worth $10 billion.
Riley, who appeared in films such as Inception, Thor: The Dark World, and Pride and Prejudice, and Musk have no children together although Musk has five children from his previous marriage.
