It’s great to know that even Elon Musk takes a break every now and again. He was recently spotted in St. Tropez, France with his latest girlfriend Natasha Basset.
The couple was spotted having a casual lunch at the Chevel Blanc Hotel – rosé wine and French fries al fresco, a meal after our own hearts.

And if you’re keen to know what the rich and famous wear for a casual lunch – well, Elon went with the standard grey t-shirt and black jeans and Natasha looked gorgeous in a green strapless dress with a silver chain pattern which she paired with silver sandals.

Elon, 50, has apparently been dating the 29-year-old Australian actress for a while. Well, that all depends on who you speak to.
According to an article in Hollywood Life back in February, their source revealed that Natasha and Elon “have only been dating for a couple of months, but they are already in a monogamous relationship.
They are very much into each other and have been spending a tremendous amount of time together.”
What is the age difference between Natasha Bassett and Elon Musk?
The Australian actress was born on October 21, 1992, in Sydney, Australia. That makes her 21 years younger than her boyfriend, Elon Musk, who was born on June 28, 1971, in Pretoria, South Africa.
“There’s nothing that compares here. It’s a beautiful part of the world. I miss it all the time,” she told Vogue Australia about growing up in New South Wales, “not to mention the Bondi breakfasts.”

Her height is believed to be approximately 5′ 7” (170 cm), making her much shorter than her boyfriend, who claims to be 6′ 2” (188 cm)
Elon’s baby girl – at least the name is pronounceable!!

And in March this year, his ex-girlfriend Grimes confirmed that their relationship had ended in September last year, 2 months before the couple welcomed their second child via surrogate in December 2021.
Elon and Grimes were known for choosing rather odd names for their children and so their daughter’s name should be no surprise – Exa Dark Sideræl. At least this time we can pronounce it considering their son’s name is X Æ A-12.
Elon’s Mom and Natasha – forming a strong bond
But back to the present, the couple had busy schedules while in France. Natasha attended the premiere of her latest movie Elvis at the Cannes Film Festival.
And if there was any doubt as to the seriousness of their relationship, according to the Evening Standard, Elon’s mother was her plus one – “Although the two women did not walk the red carpet together and were careful not to be seen in the same shot at the event, it was later confirmed that Bassett brought her boyfriend’s mum as her date.”

A Hollywood Life source added, “Elon and Natasha are still going strong and over time Natasha has developed a solid bond with his mother Maye.
Maye is the most important person in Elon’s world and the fact that she adores Natasha means so much to him,”
Premieres and weddings
Natasha portrays Elvis Presley’s first girlfriend Dixie Locke in the new Baz Luhrmann movie. She stars alongside Austin Butler who plays Elvis and Tom Hanks in his role of Elvis’ manager.

Although this is undoubtedly her biggest movie, you may recognize her from her previous role as Britney Spears in Britney Ever After in 2017.
“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,” Bassett told Us Weekly about her role in the biographical drama television film that was a critical and commercial failure.
“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 came out at the end so strong and on top.”

Natasha looked incredible for the premiere of Elvis wearing an Antonio Grimaldi pink Fuschia gown from his Spring 2022 Couture Collection.

Not everyone can pull off this bold and vibrant pink but Natasha managed effortlessly. This is truly a gown of movie stars with its strapless fitted bodice of pink satin and we loved the cut-out detail.
The fitted bodice gave off mermaid vibes as it flared into a sea of pink net with a trail reminiscent of movie stars from a bygone era.

She accessorized with Christian Louboutin shoes that spent most of the time hiding under that trail.
With such a statement dress, choosing the right jewelry can be tricky but Natasha made the perfect choice opting for a Chopard necklace.

A day later the couple attended the glamourous wedding of Hollywood agent Ari Emanuel and fashion designer Sarah Staudinger alongside a host of celebrities in St.Tropez. We are sure this isn’t the last time we are going to see this happy couple out and about!!
