Elon Musk has moved on after his breakup with Canadian singer Grimes.

Fans tried to identify the young woman at the billionaire’s side. Rumors swirled regarding the identity of the young lady.

Now, sources reveal the mysterious woman to be Natasha Bassett.

The identity of Elon Musk’s new girlfriend is now public, and naturally, people have questions. Who is Natasha Bassett? 

Natasha Bassett is Australian

Natasha Bassett played Britney Spears in a movie

Lifetime released a Britney Spears biopic called Britney Ever After, and Natasha played Britney Spears. 

The film was panned by critics and fans, receiving 2.3 stars on IMDb.

At the time, Bassett told Us Magazine, “I have so much respect and admiration for Britney and what attracted me to doing this movie is that it’s truly a feminist story at its core. And as a feminist myself, I was inspired to tell the story of a woman’s journey. She was faced with so many challenges, but she comes out at the end so strong and on top.”

She will play Elvis’ first girlfriend in an upcoming movie

In 2022, a new Elvis biopic by famed director Baz Luhrmann will come out with Tom Hanks as Colonel Tom Parker and Austin Butler as Elvis Presley. Natasha plays Dixie Locke, who was the first girlfriend of Elvis.
