Know everything about Natasha Bassett, rumored girlfriend of Elon musk
Over the past few days, Australian actor Natasha Bassett's name has been hitting headlines pretty frequently and for an interesting reason. Rumors suggest that she is dating Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. Their relationship reportedly began shortly after Musk split from Canadian singer Grimes (born Claire Elise Boucher) last year in September-October, with whom he shares a son. Let's know more about Bassett.
Bassett, also a screenwriter and director, was spotted exiting Gulfstream, Musk's private jet, as it touched down in Los Angeles on February 17, giving rise to these speculations. A publication quoted a source as saying, "She's gorgeous and could have her pick of men but says she adores Elon because he's so interesting." They added that the new couple is "in a monogamous relationship."
Musk is a multi-billionaire and sits on an alluring net worth of $273.5B, but it's not the money that attracted Bassett (27) to him. She fell for the entrepreneur's brain and "not his bank balance," the report said. If these rumors are indeed true, this will be Bassett's first high-profile relationship, while Musk has been divorced thrice. He's also a father to seven children.
Bassett, a Sydney-born starlet, landed her first role at 14, when she was the lead of Romeo and Juliet (2009), a production of Australian Theatre for Young People. That same year, her MTV film Dungoona came out and in the following years, she worked on projects like Rake, Wild Boys, and Cops L.A.C. Eventually, she moved to New York and now resides in LA.
For her work on the short film Kite, Bassett won a screenwriting scholarship from the ArtStart Screenwriters Program. The noted short was also shown at Rhode Island International Film Festival, Balinale International Film Festival, and the Big Bear Lake International Film Festival. But it was in 2017 that she shot to fame for playing Britney Spears in a Lifetime biopic named Britney Ever After.
Bassett is pretty active on social media and from her pictures, we can understand that she loves hiking and traveling. Her photos also prove that she's a bibliophile and a fashionista. As far as her upcoming films are concerned, Bassett will next be seen as Dixie Locke, girlfriend of Elvis Presley (Austin Butler), in the latter's biopic. It has been directed by Baz Luhrmann.
