By Alexandra Richards
Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s father has said it was “God’s plan” for him to have a child with his step-daughter.Errol Musk, 72, described the baby boy he had with step-daughter Jana Bezuidenhout, 30, as “exquisite.”Despite the fact that Mr Musk married Ms Bezuidenhout’s mother, Heidi, when Jana was four, he said he does not consider her his step-daughter.

Mr Musk and Ms Bezuidenhout’s mother had two children together before divorcing after 18 years of marriage.

He told The Sunday Times that his stepdaughter had contacted him last year after splitting up with her boyfriend.

“We were lonely, lost people,” he said from his home in South Africa. “One thing led to another — you can call it God’s plan or nature’s plan.”

Two months later Ms Bezuidenhout told Mr Musk she was pregnant and a paternity test revealed he was the father.

The news of the baby reportedly caused a rift between Mr Musk and his other children.

His son, tech billionaire Elon Musk was allegedly “outraged” when he heard about the baby.

A relation to the family told the MailOnline: “The whole family was outraged when we found out. This is the reason why Elon is so angry with Errol. He is the only father she has ever known. And now he is the father of her child as well.”

The entrepreneur, who is in a relationship with actress Amber Heard, previously described his father as “evil” in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

Elon Musk previously described his father as “evil”

He said his father had committed “almost every crime you can possibly think of” and done “almost every evil thing you could possibly think of”.

Errol Musk disputed his son’s portrayal of him but has admitted shooting dead three intruders in his home in South Africa, for which he pleaded self-defence to a manslaughter charge and was acquitted.

Mr Musk senior is a millionaire who made his fortune through engineering.

He told The Sunday Times that he thought his children were “spoilt.”

“They were spoilt, I suppose. Maybe that’s why Elon is acting like a spoilt child now,” he said.

Two Doctors Fired After ‘Dead’ Baby Wakes Up At Funeral |The Republican News

A hospital in India fired two physicians and promised an investigation after a baby who was declared dead woke up in a bag while the family was driving to his funeral.

The case has sparked outrage across the country, police are involved, and the New Delhi health minister has threatened to cancel the hospital’s license.

Max Healthcare in New Delhi issued a statement saying the “unfortunate incident” occurred Thursday following a premature delivery of twins after a five-month pregnancy. The second child was stillborn; the first was declared dead a short time later.

The babies were placed in plastic bags and the family was driving to the crematorium when they saw movement. They opened the bag to find the live child.

The baby was placed on life support, the hospital said.

“We are shaken and concerned at this rare incident,” the hospital said. “We are in constant touch with the parents and are providing all the needed support.”

Adding to the controversy, the child’s father, identified by Delhi-TV as Ashish, said physicians told him Wednesday that his wife, Varsha, needed an operation for bleeding. Ashish said physicians demanded extra money to improve the chances of keeping the baby and mother alive.

Delhi police said they were collecting hospital records for the mother and treatment records for the newborn babies. Video from the hospital also was being reviewed, police said.

The hospital, with more than 300 beds, is one of 14 in the Max Healthcare locations across India. It is dubbed a “super specialty hospital” on the company’s website, boasting a wide array of medical disciplines.

Max Healthcare said the firings represent a “strict action” but should not be viewed as a finding of fault against the physicians, AP Mehta and Vishal Gupta. Rather, the terminations are a “reflection of our commitment to higher standards of care.”

The Indian Medical Association weighed in on the case, issuing a warning for hospitals that a body’s metabolism can be “suspended” in cases of severe hypothermia and may protect against oxygen deprivation for an extended period of time.

The association is conducting an inquiry along with hospital officials. Dr. KK Aggarwal, president of the association, attempted to take some heat off the fired physicians.

“There is definitely a mistake,” he told Asian News International. “The difference between a mistake and negligence is deliberate action. I don’t think any doctor will do it willfully. But let the inquiry committee find out.”  (USA TODAY)
