Musk was born in South Africa, but has three nationalities: South African, American and Canadian.

“He’s a horrible human being. Anything illegal you can think of, he’s already done” she said with tears in her eyes.

In addition to emotional abuse and physical abuse from his father, Musk, who suffers from Asperger’s (a kind of autism), was bullied at school because his best friends were books.

The abuse was such that one day he ended up in the hospital after his companions beat him up.

“They managed to get my best friend to encourage me to come out of hiding so they could beat me up, the children were looking for me at school to beat me up with sticks,” he narrated, until one day he decided to learn to fight and confront the leader of the children who abused him and hit him.
