It’s a pairing that would send Hollywood into overdrive.
Billionaire businessman Elon Musk is ‘definitely on the prowl’ for a partner after his August breakup with actress Amber Heard two months back, insiders told Page Six, and has his sights set on Dakota Johnson, the 28-year-old beauty who plays Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades Of Grey films.
Musk, 46, ‘flew down to see Dakota’ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this past week for agent Guy Oseary’s celeb-laden vows renewal with wife Michelle Alves, a source told the paper.

Romance brewing? Elon Musk, 46, sought to see Dakota Johnson, 28, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this week when he went to attend Guy Oseary’s celeb-laden vows renewal there, the New York Post reported
Dakota, who is the daughter of stars Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, was snapped at LAX airport in Los Angeles Saturday, presumably returning from Brazil, where she attended the vow renewal.
The How to Be Single actress toted an orange box as she made her way through the busy travel hub.
However, a rep for the Tesla mogul slightly disputed the account from the website, saying that Musk already ‘knows Dakota and obviously wouldn’t need to fly to Brazil if he wanted to see her,’ but was there because he’s pals with Oseary ‘and Guy invited him.’
After the renewal, the rep told the paper, it was back to business for the entrepreneur, as ‘he left the wedding right after the speeches were done in order to fly back to the Tesla Gigafactory for critical work on Model 3 production.’

The plot thickens, however, as Elon subsequently left the factory in Nevada and headed to Los Angeles, where an eyewitness saw him at the swanky West Hollywood event, Perrier-Jouet Presents Garden of Wonder with Simon Hammerstein.
There, the eyewitness said that he was sidled up to gorgeous Australian model Jessica Hart, 31, herself off a breakup with another debonair billionaire in Stavros Niarchos III.
The eyewitness said that ‘Elon and Jessica sat next to other at a private table and were drinking Champagne … they were sitting very close and chatting off to one side.’

Musk’s rep denied any romantic inklings between Hart and the Tesla founder, noting that it was ‘definitely not a date’ when the two crossed paths. The rep told the paper: ‘Jessica and Elon were part of a large group that briefly attended that party … however, there was nothing romantic or “cozy,” and they hadn’t even met before last night.’
Dakota’s love life has been just as intriguing, as this month she’s been on outings with Coldplay singer Christ Martin and Mad Men actor Jon Hamm. She had a ‘low-key’ dinner October 5 with Hamm, 46, at Kingside at New York City’s Viceroy Central Park hotel, the paper reported, with a source noting that the tandem ‘seemed to really be enjoying each other’s company.’
Five days later, the actress enjoyed a ‘cozy, laughing and affectionate’ outing over sushi with Martin, 40, in Los Angeles, People reported.
