Former intelligence analyst Manning, 34, spent seven years in military prison after leaking classified documents to Wikileaks.

She was released from prison in 2020, after her 35-year sentence was commuted by former president Barack Obama.

Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, welcomed a second child via surrogate with Musk and revealed the news in a Vanity Fair story.

She explained that she would ‘probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluid. We live in separate houses. We’re best friends.’

The initial report of Grimes and Manning’s relationship came hours after the ‘Oblivion’ singer revealed that they had split for a second time.

She tweeted: ‘Me and E have broken up *again* since the writing of this article haha, but he’s my best friend and the love of my life, and my life and art are forever dedicated to The Mission now.’

The couple split three months after welcoming their second child, and she did not go into detail about when exactly the break-up took place.

However her Twitter thread about the split was ‘liked’ by Manning’s official account.

Grimes is only thought to have split from Elon  three months after the birth of their second child, previously calling the billionaire her 'boyfriend' in an interview with Vanity Fair

In June, when asked about her romantic life, Manning told the Daily Beast: ‘I prefer to keep my private life private.’

She was jailed again in March 2019  after she refused to testify before a grand jury that was investigating Wikileaks and its founder Julian Assange.

Manning served a two-month sentence before being released, however she was then put behind bars for a second time.

She was eventually freed in March 2020, one day after she attempted suicide inside her Virginia jail cell.

Manning, who was born Bradley Edward Manning, came out as transgender days after she was sentenced in 2013.
