As you may or may not have heard, longtime couple and resident celeb eccentrics Grimes and Elon Musk have split, kind of.

After being together for three years, Elon said in a statement to Page Six, “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently, and are on great terms.”

The scale goes as follows: eighth-separated, quarter-separated, semi-separated, two-thirds-separated, three-fourths separated, and — last, but certainly not least — separated.
The billionaire SpaceX founder and Tesla CEO cited his travels and work as reasoning for the split. Though, currently, he said Grimes is staying with him. The pair has sparked breakup rumors before, due to the fact that they’ve repeatedly unfollowed each other on social media.

Naturally, Twitter had a lot of thoughts, because — love ’em or hate ’em — they are a pair that fascinates, compels, and elicits some degree of musing, if ironically. Below are some of the best reactions:
I love a good (nay, great and glorious) pun.

Call me a conspiracy theorist because…
Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I don’t think it’s a simple coincidence that Grimes and Elon broke up less than 24 hours after Nintendo announced that Chris Pratt was going to voice Mario in a Super Mario movie.

“We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms… She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room.”
