Grimes appears to have slammed her former husband Elon Musk in a new break up song.

The 33-year-old Canadian singer – who was in a relationship with the billionaire SpaceX founder from 2018 until 2021 – has released a new song titled ‘Player of Games’, which seemingly alludes to her former partner.

In the song, which was released on 3 December, Grimes seemingly makes multiple, thinly veiled references to the 50-year-old Tesla and SpaceX chief executive.

She sings: “I’m in love with the greatest gamer, but he’ll always love the game more than he loves me” before going on to croon: “Sail away to the cold expanse of space, even love couldn’t keep you in your place.”

Before making his first million at the age of 27, Musk was an avid creator of video games, with the entrepreneur claiming on Twitter that his tenure at Rocket Science Games was a “night job.”

The loaded track comes just months after the pair – who have son X Æ A-Xii, 20 months, together – announced that they were “semi-separated” in September 2021 but insisted that things were still very civil between them.
