Elon Musk recently made headlines reaching a deal to become the new owner of Twitter for approximately $44 billion. The Tesla founder is once again in the news, but he’s in it for a very wrong reason this time.
According to Business Insider, Musk allegedly exposed himself to a SpaceX flight attendant in 2016. The incident is said to have occurred on the company’s corporate jet mid-flight.
SpaceX ended up paying $250,000 to the alleged victim. A friend of the flight attendant is speaking up about the 2016 incident as they are not bound by any non-disclosure agreements with the company.
Musk allegedly asked for a “full body massage” and offered to buy the flight attendant a horse if she would “do more.” The outlet also reported that the flight attendant was told to bear the expenses for professional massage training in order to better serve Musk during flights.
The billionaire allegedly exposed himself to the flight attendant during a flight to London. According to the friend, Musk “touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse.” The accusation went on to further detail Musk’s alleged intent.
“And he basically tried to bribe her to perform some sort of sexual favor.”
His advances were refused by the attendant, who later felt like she was being “punished” with fewer shifts at the company. The case came to a close in 2018 after the SpaceX founder agreed to pay $250,000. Keep following Thirsty for more as we continue monitoring this still-developing story.
