Elon Musk says he is an alien two years after denying suspicions that he hails from another planet.
The SpaceX and Tesla founder, 49, made the jaw-dropping claim in response to a question about how he runs so many massive companies at the same time.
Musk's answer sent fans into a frenzy with one Twitter user describing his announcement as the "Worst kept secret" and another commented: "We knew it already that you are an alien."
Tech start-up mogul Kunal Shah teased out the quote from the world's richest man by writing on Twitter: "Elon musk may end up running 4+ 500 billion companies simultaneously at a relatively young age.
"What I want to really understand: how does he do it? How does he manage context switching? How does he design his Org? So many questions.

"@elonmusk: answer if you see this, dark lord."
Swooping in to put Shah's mind at rest on the subject, Musk simply replied on Friday: "I’m an alien."
What was seen as a joke by most has in fact been interpreted by some as a brazen confession to his real being.
One follower replied: "Is that why you're building a Spaceship … to get back to your home planet?"
"Coincidence that Elon said on Rogan that Aliens could just make themselves known if they wanted to? I like this not so subtle approach," another commented.
A third wrote: "I knew it from the beginning that's why you wanna go back your home (Mars)."
In April 2019 Musk was filmed at the World Government Summit saying: "I think this is one of the great questions in physics and philosophy, is where are the aliens?
"Maybe they're among us I don't know. Some people think I'm an alien. Not true, not true."
The clip shared in reaction to his latest announcement was captioned: "Hey @elonmusk here you said that you're not an alien, now you have different statement… So, what's the truth?"
