Elon Musk's Dad Says He's Not Proud Of His Son

During a recent interview, Elon Musk's dad has said he's not proud of his billionaire son.

There's no doubt the Tesla boss has achieved a lot in his career, but you can always count on your parents to keep you humble, right?

Well, that's what happened when Errol Musk answered some questions about his overachieving offspring - revealing that Kimbal, Elon's younger brother is actually his 'pride and joy' and that he's not necessarily proud of Elon.

When asked if he was proud of his son while appearing on the Kyle and Jackie O show, Errol said: "No."

"Well you know I mean we are a family that have been doing a lot of things for a long time it's not as though we suddenly started doing something so we've all been you know as a family all doing things, you know, you know from the very beginning," he added, which has the same vibe as Victoria Justice saying 'I think we all sing' when Ariana Grande was being praised.

However, Errol went on to explain that he and his kids went on a fair few adventures together, so doing extraordinary stuff was, well, ordinary: "So I mean the kids were traveling with me around the world when they were tiny and you know and they've been doing pretty much very interesting things.

"We've been down to Amazon together, for example, we've been to China and you know long ago when it was quite difficult to go there and things like that East Germany and you know so they've seen a lot of things and we've done a lot of things together we, we are just sort of that kind of family."

Still, according to Errol his son feels like an underachiever: "Elon is not as happy as he'd like to be, he'd like to be where he is now uh he would have liked to have been there five years ago oh really so he feels that."

During the 20-minute interview, Errol also made reference to the recent shirtless photo that has been circulating of his son in Greece, explaining he had been urging Elon to eat better.

"Elon is very strongly built but he's been eating badly," he admitted.
