Vancouver music star Grimes and tech superstar Elon Musk are an item

Social media is packed up with Met Gala 2018 held in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday evening.

The new couple wore black and white for the Met Gala, in NY, with its "Catholic Imagination" theme - while Grimes donned what looked like a choker in the shape of the Tesla symbol. But it was Elon Musk who turned more heads and not because of his outfit. It seems that now the two have chose to make their relationship official with their appearance at the Met Gala.

Page Six broke the story, claiming that the pair bonded over a mutual appreciation for the Roko's Basilisk thought experiment.

The source added that pair designed the musician's dress together over dinner and commissioned a team to make it. Elon looked dapper in a black tuxedo jacket with a Papal-style shirt underneath, black pants and a white robe. Canadian singer Grimes chose to sport a gothic look in a black-and-silver corseted gown for their first appearance as a couple.

SpaceX and Tesla founder Musk had been very public in his past fandom for Grimes whose real name is Claire Boucher.

While Musk and Grimes may appear to be from divergent universes, their love for experimentation, refuting established tropes, and Artificial Intelligence have manifested in an unlikely new power couple. The 46-year-old executive was already Tesla's largest shareholder.

People noted that Musk and Grimes have been giving fans a hint at their romance on Twitter.

"Elon was researching the idea of joking about Rococo Basilisk, and when he saw Grimes had already joked about it, he reached out to her", the insider went on saying.

The singer created a character named "Rococo Basilisk" for a video of her song "Flesh Without Blood" Speaking to Fuse, Grimes said, "I don't know if you've heard of Roko's Basilisk".

But Musk realized Grimes had made the same highbrow A.I. joke, years before he thought of it. "They both care for one another, but the timing just isn't right".
