Elon Musk revealed that he slept in his car while heading to meet French president Emmanuel Macron at his official residence in Paris today.
The billionaire was seated opposite Macron in one of the Elysee Palace’s gilded rooms, and he joked that he had to ‘sleep in the car’ on Sunday after a night of partying in remarks caught on camera before their meeting.
It comes less than 48 hours after the Tesla CEO had been spotted mingling with festivalgoers at a trance music event in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday.
He was seen watching Mladen Solomun, a Bosnian-German DJ, along with a 10,000-strong crowd.
In the meeting with the French president today, Musk could be seen still wearing what appeared to be his party boots from the previous night.

In a statement afterwards, the Elysee said the meeting covered several topics of common interest, notably the European response to the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act and the progress France has made in attracting investment and improving the outlook for electric vehicles and energy.
‘We have so much to do together,’ Macron said in a tweet.
In Versailles, Musk attended a roundtable about ‘Green Industrialisation’ at 3 p.m. (1300 GMT) and a dinner with the other CEOs.
French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire will pitch to Musk new tax credits for investments in green technology that Macron made public last week, the finance ministry told Reuters.
France previously tried to convince Musk to build a European gigafactory in the country, but he chose Germany for his only European gigafactory so far.
Asked by BFM TV about possible investments by Musk, Le Maire said only ‘all investments that are being made today are the result of months or even years of negotiations’.
Tesla was not immediately available for comment.
Musk is known to be a fan of Electronic Dance Music (EDM), having written and released a track himself in January 2020 entitled ‘Don’t Doubt Your Vibe’.
His partying antics came days after he announced NBC Universal Linda Yaccarino would take over as CEO of Twitter.
Last week the Twitter boss revealed how he’s hired her to take over from him as the social media network’s chief executive officer.
Musk, who bought Twitter in October 2022, tweeted: ‘Excited to announce that I’ve a new CEO for X/Twitter. She will be starting in 6 weeks!
‘My role will transition to being exec chair & CTO (chief technology officer), overseeing product, software & sysops.’
