Elon Musk may be moving on after his breakup with Grimes.

The 50-year-old Tesla and SpaceX CEO was spotted Thursday disembarking from his private jet in Los Angeles accompanied by a female guest. Celebrity news site Hollywood Life has since identified her as Australian actress Natasha Bassett.

A source identified as being "close" to Musk told the publication that Musk and Bassett have been dating for a couple of months and are in a monogamous relationship.

"They are very much into each other and have been spending a tremendous amount of time together," the source told Hollywood Life.

Bassett will appear in the upcoming Elvis Presley biopic, playing the role of his girlfriend, Dixie Locke. Bassett also played Britney Spears in the Lifetime movie "Britney Ever After" and had a role in the 2016 film "Hail, Caesar!" 

Musk revealed in September that he and the singer and producer Grimes had broken up after three years of dating. They share a nearly 2-year-old son, X Æ A-Xii, and at the time, Grimes and X were still staying with Musk at his home in Texas. 

Prior to dating Grimes, Musk had a high-profile relationship with actress Amber Heard — following their break-up, he opened up about his romantic life to Rolling Stone, telling the publication that he prefers to be in long-term relationships.

"If I'm not in love, if I'm not with a long-term companion, I cannot be happy ... Going to sleep alone kills me," he said at the time.

Musk has been married three times, twice to actress Talulah Riley. He shares five sons with his first wife, Justine Musk.
