Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Motors (TSLA) and Riley, an English actress, were married in 2010, divorced in 2012, and remarried after 18 months.

Elon Musk initially filed for divorce on New Year’s Eve in 2014, but canceled the petition in June 2015. According to the couple, the divorce is amicable and they both agreed to end their marriage after ebing together for more than two years. Musk and Riley have reportedly been living separately for the last six months.

Riley, citing irreconcilable differences, is said to be seeking spousal support.

The billionaire also backed up the building of the Hyperloop, a bullet train that would easily transport people at the speed of sound. Musk has also tried his hand at acting. He appeared on The Big Bang Theory and in Iron Man 2. He is set to unveil the latest version of Tesla’s electric car later this month, according to reports.

Riley, 30, appeared in the 2005 film adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Thor: The Dark World, and Inception. The actress is also a writer and a director. She wrote her first feature film Scottish Mussel back in 2014, and is now working on her first novel Acts of Love, which is scheduled to debut in August.

Elon Musk and Talulah Riley do not have any children together but the entrepreneur has five children with ex-wife, Justine Musk.

“Mr. Musk and Ms. Riley continue to see each other occasionally as friends,” according to a statement from the couple’s representative.
