Grimes is dating a whistleblower. Chelsea Manning’s split with Elon Musk

Grimes is dating infamous leaker Chelsea Manning after her relationship with Elon Musk ended for the second time, Page Six can exclusively reveal.

“They’re getting serious. They U-Hauled it,” a source tells us of the fast-paced nature of their relationship. “They’ve been living together in Austin.”

Our source also says Manning still has her apartment in Brooklyn.

Neither Manning nor reps for Grimes immediately returned Page Six’s requests for comment.

The pair have been interacting on Twitter in recent months, with certain messages hinting at their relationship.

In one exchange, Grimes, 33, explained why she had not yet appeared on a user’s Twitch stream, tweeting that she had not been “in LA” but felt “bad for postponing like 10 times.” In response, Manning tweeted, “vouch.”

And in December, Grimes tweeted, “Celebrity culture is suffocating a f. I’m not quitting music, but def changing my main day job after BOOK 1. Music industry feels old and tired, reliant on archaic systems.” When Manning once again replied, “vouch,” Grimes responded to her, “Since I seem to be taking ur word as final these days.”

Manning, 34, also has “liked” multiple tweets having to do with Grimes, including the announcement of the singer’s Vanity Fair cover story, in which she revealed she secretly welcomed a second child via surrogate, a girl named Exa Dark Sideræl, with the Tesla founder, 50, in December.

Although the story said she and Musk were in a “fluid” relationship, she clarified Thursday that they had since broken up again.

The former US soldier, for her part, made headlines in the early 2010s for leaking hundreds of thousands of documents to WikiLeaks. She was sentenced to 35 years in prison after being found guilty of 20 crimes, including six violations of the Espionage Act.

In January 2017, President Barack Obama commuted Manning’s remaining prison sentence after she had served seven years and attempted suicide multiple times.
