Unpleasant cash Shanahan is a pawn in Musk and Brin’s ‘tycoon playboy games’: sources

Google prime supporter Sergey Brin’s alienated spouse Nicole Shanahan is being treated as a “pawn” in “tycoon playboy games,” sources told The Post.

The business visionary and mother of one yesterday denied reports that she had laid down with Tesla boss Elon Musk.

A source acquainted with the circumstance told The Post Wednesday: “Nicole is a confidential individual, who is hitched to an extremely open individual.

“What’s going on here is a great deal of harassing by rich individuals, as Nicole endeavors to figure out her separation and guardianship of her 3-year-old youngster.

“The reality this is occurring in a separation is vile. As of now, Nicole is essentially a pawn in these extremely rich person playboy games,” the source claimed.

Shanahan, 33, is arranging her separation from Brin after the pair declared their split the month before.

The Wall Street Journal first reported the news of a brief fling between Shanahan and Musk, the world’s richest man, with sources alleging that the pair hooked up in December at Miami’s Art Basel and saying it led to the end of Shanahan’s marriage to Brin.

Asked about how the story came out, another insider who knows Brin and Shanahan told The Post:

“You just have to ask in whose interest this story was — who stands to gain?”

Shanahan’s attorney Bryan Freedman issued a statement, seen by The Post, saying:

“Make no mistake, any suggestion that Nicole had an affair with Elon Musk is not only an outright lie but also defamatory.”

Musk himself has denied the affair to The Post and tweeted:

“Haven’t even had sex in ages (sigh).”

Musk, 51, maintained he and his pal Brin, 48, are still on very good terms — despite rumors that their bromance had cooled in the wake of the alleged betrayal.

He even sent over a photo of himself and Brin partying together on Sunday night.

Shanahan is known for starting ClearAccessIP, a tech company that uses artificial intelligence to manage patents. She sold the company in 2020.

She is also the founder and president of Bia-Echo Foundation, a philanthropic foundation that promotes criminal justice reform, fights for a sustainable future and supports research on fertility and reproductive longevity in women in their mid-30s.

The latter issue is a personal one for Shanahan, who has been open about her difficulty getting pregnant.

As Page Six revealed, she was expecting her and Brin’s first child back in 2019, and she gave birth to a baby girl. The couple announced their divorce last month.
