Elon Musk FILE PHOTO dated November 2006. FILE: Tesla CEO Elon Musk, multi millionaire, rocket scientist,  and the man who inspired Tony Stark's character in Jon Favreau's "Iron Man" films, has allegedly run out of cash. Elon Musk, Silicon Valley superhero, sold Zip2 for $$300 million, sold Pay Pal and got $200 million, with that money started SpaceX with a $1.6 billion dollar contract from NASA, founded Solar City, a leader in solar power and then started  Tesla Motors, the electric super car company, worth $1.4 billion if the company goes public as scheduled. Along the way married fantasy novelist Jennifer J. Wilson, who became Justine Musk, purchased a multi million dollar mansion in Bel Air. His life inspired Iron Man film director Jon Favreau to base his uber-capitalist hero John Stark on Elon Musk. Then he ran off with actress Talulah Riley. Now there is a messy divorce and Elon Musk says he has allegedly run out of cash and is broke. Justine Musk, wants the house, alimony, child support and $6 million cash. She also wants a cut of Tesla Motors and a piece of Mr. MuskÕs stock in his rocket company, SpaceX. Elon Musk says he has no cash. The revelations about Mr. MuskÕs personal financial problems stunned many in the industry. Wall Street spent years courting him. The Energy Department had given Tesla --- which has sold its $100,000 electric sports cars to the likes of Larry Page, the Google co-founder, and George Clooney--$465 million in low-interest loans. On paper Mr Musk is still very rich, the problem is he has no cash. **ORIGINAL CAPTION** The Bel Air estate of South African internet entrepreneur Elon Musk and his wife Justine. The Zip2.com and PayPal founder is currently the CEO and founder of SpaceX.com, his latest venture. He is also Chairman of the Board at SolarCity.com and Telsa Motors, a high performance electric sportscar startup company. The 3,292 square foot home has three beds and three baths with city and ocean views.
