Grimes says she went to the hospital with a “scary” panic attack two days after appearing on the latest episode of “Saturday Night Live,” hosted by her boyfriend, Elon Musk.
Alongside the photo, Grimes wrote: “Forgot to post these cuz I somehow caused myself to have a panic attack and went to the hospital yesterday which tbh was quite scary and I suppose it’s a good time to start therapy.”
She continued: “But nonetheless – wowwwww @mileycyrus is good live and so chill! So grateful to the SNL team for being so kind and letting me sneak in as princess peach snd so proud of my beautiful E (which I know will upset the grimes fans so I apologize in advance) but he killed it.”
One of the biggest surprises of Musk’s “SNL” show was Grimes’ cameo.
In the skit, Musk played the Nintendo character Wario, and the “SNL” cast member Mikey Day played his lawyer, who was trying to prove that Wario didn’t murder his archenemy, Mario. Grimes featured as Princess Peach, Mario’s love interest.

It is unclear whether Grimes’ panic attack and subsequent hospital trip were directly related to her “SNL” appearance. Grimes did not specify exactly how long she remained in the hospital.
The decision to hire Musk as the guest host of “SNL” was controversial, with several cast members reportedly unhappy with it. Pete Davidson defended Musk as an “SNL” host, however, and the 49-year-old Tesla CEO went ahead with the show.
During his show, Musk revealed that he had Asperger’s. “I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s to host ‘SNL,'” Musk said in his opening monologue – though it was pointed out that Dan Aykroyd, who hosted “SNL” back in 2003, also has Asperger’s.
Grimes and Musk have been a couple since 2018, when they made their first public appearance together at the Met Gala. In May last year, the couple welcomed their son, X AE A-Xii, who recently celebrated his first birthday.
