Report: SpaceX Paid $250K to Elon Musk Accuser
A Business Insider report said that SpaceX paid $250,000 in severance to a private jet flight attendant who accused the company’s founder and CEO Elon Musk of sexual misconduct.
The report cited interviews and documents obtained by the outlet, saying that a woman claimed that Musk exposed his erect penis during a massage, touched her thigh without her consent, and offered to purchase a horse for her if she performed sexual acts.
Musk provided a statement to Insider, saying there was “a lot more to this story.”
“If I were inclined to engage in sexual harassment, this is unlikely to be the first time in my entire 30-year career that it comes to light,” Musk told the outlet, adding that the article was a “politically motivated hit piece.”
Musk took to Twitter to address the report, saying “those wild accusations are utterly untrue.”
