Jennifer Gwynne, Elon Musk’s ex-girlfriend, has set up some of his old college photos for auction. According to a report in the Independent, the memories from her affair with the Tesla CEO date back to 1994, when both were in their 20s and enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania.
The pictures are being auctioned off by Ms. Gwynne to earn money for her stepson’s schooling. She was quoted by the source as indicating that the union lasted a whole year. The 48-year-old Ms. Gwynne resides in South Carolina in the United States.
The images she has provided for the auction display Mr. Musk relaxing in his dorm with pals, having fun on campus, and using a computer. RR Auction has posted these images online, and the starting price for the majority of them is $100.
The source cited Ms. Gwynne as adding that while their romance was “lovely,” it wasn’t “extremely affectionate.”
According to the Independent, the relationship ended when Mr. Musk moved to Palo Alto in 1995 and began dating his first wife, Justine Wilson.
“We met in the fall of 1994. I was a junior and he was a senior. We were in the same dorm and we worked together,” Ms Gwynne was reported saying by the Independent.
She further said, “His shy nature attracted me at first. He used to be my type.”
“He put a lot of effort and concentration into his academics. He used to frequently talk about electric cars back then. He was undoubtedly on his way somewhere. He just considered school a stepping stone,” Ms. Gwynne remarked.
