GWYNNE MAKES BANK FROM MEMORABILIA
According to the Associated Press (AP), Gwynne read about test papers marked by Musk that were sold at auction and realised she was still in possession of more personal items attached to the Tesla CEO that she could sell. He even changed his Twitter profile picture to one of the items on the block.
Musk and Gwynne dated from 1994 to 1995 while they were both at the University of Pennsylvania. “We broke up just before he started conquering the world,” she said. Gwynne reportedly said they split when Musk graduated and moved to California because he said he couldn’t talk on the phone as it seemed like a waste of time.
Boston-based house, IRR Auction, put the items up. A gold necklace with a small emerald that Musk gave to Gwynne as a birthday present in 1994 sold for $51 000. A photograph of the couple posing with four other resident advisors before a school formal sold for $42 000.
