In a recent interview, the Tesla boss's father Errol Musk claimed that he is not proud of his billionaire son.

Errol's outrageous comments have provoked backlash online from people accusing him of "gaslighting" Elon due to an "envy complex".

The South African engineer was quizzed about his relationship with his son during an appearance on the Kyle and Jackie O Show. When asked whether he was proud of Elon, he responded bluntly: "No."

"Well you know I mean we are a family that have been doing a lot of things for a long time it's not as though we suddenly started doing something so we've all been you know as a family all doing things, you know, you know from the very beginning," he continued.

He went on to suggest that Elon had been doing amazing things his whole life - largely thanks to him. "So I mean the kids were traveling with me around the world when they were tiny and you know and they've been doing pretty much very interesting things," he said.

"We've been down to Amazon together, for example, we've been to China and you know long ago when it was quite difficult to go there and things like that East Germany and you know so they've seen a lot of things and we've done a lot of things together we, we are just sort of that kind of family," he added.

Errol concluded by saying: "Elon is not as happy as he'd like to be, he'd like to be where he is now uh he would have liked to have been there five years ago oh really so he feels that."

Many took to social media to slam Errol for his unsupportive attitude, writing: "His lack of support and gaslighting of his son only shows his weakness and jealousy."

Another person wrote: "Sounds like Dad has some type of envy-complex. Your son shoots cars into space for fun... what super-powers do you have?"

"His dad is a joke," added a third.
