Maye Musk — the mother of controversial Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk — has written her first book.
An insider tells Page Six that Musk’s tome “A Woman Makes a Plan,” will focus on her life as a single mom before her son’s businesses made her family wildly rich.
“It wasn’t always the Musk life you see now. [The book] talks about raising kids alone, and the financial struggles they went through,” said an insider. “It’s also going to be about her dating life, marriage and the fashion industry. She was blocked by agents and couldn’t get work for years. Now, she’s a global success in what she calls the ‘prime of her life.’”
Musk also discusses struggling through poverty and dealing with weight issues as a plus-size model. The book goes on sale Dec. 31.
