Grimes has provided her latest statement on her split with billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and this time it comes via her rather pointed reading material.

The 33-year-old musician was spotted in downtown Los Angeles on Friday, seemingly engrossed in Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto after ‘semi-separating’ from the world’s richest man.

In photos obtained by The New York Post, the star could be seen in her first public appearance since news of the split sitting on the ground, leaning against a metal pole and wandering down the pavement, all while taking in the words of anti-capitalist Marx.

Grimes was dressed in her customary futuristic style, this time in steampunk-esque greyish pink legging and a matching brown leotard, complete with a flowing hooded jacket, strapped gloves and black boots.

She also rocked statement pointed nails and wore her blonde and pink hair loose.

The book, which comes from the 1848 party pamphlet written by Marx and Friedrich Engels, includes calls for the seizure of wealth.

Elon, who is also the founder of SpaceX, is thought to be worth just shy of $200billion (£147bn) and is currently in first position on the world’s rich list, although he often trades places with Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

Grimes had previously joked that she’d be ‘colonising Europa [one of Jupiter’s moons] separately from Elon for the lesbian space commune’ as she imaginatively commented on their break-up.

This was thought to be a reference to her ex-partner’s company SpaceX’s $178m (£131m) contract with NASA, which focuses on Europa’s icy conditions and if it could be habitable.

According to Elon, 50, who announced their separation, he and Grimes – real name Claire Elise Boucher – remain ‘on great terms’ as they co-parent their son, X Æ A-Xii.

The former couple welcomed ‘Baby X’ together in May 2020, two years after making their public debut as a couple.
