In a new report, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, is accused of sexual abuse. Without commenting directly on the case, Musk hinted that it was part of a campaign of “political attacks” by Democrats.

The alleged offense dates back to 2016, but it appears now after a friend of the alleged victim spoke in detail about the charges Insider.

According to a friend named in the report, the woman was reportedly hired by a flight attendant at SpaceX on a corporate Mask aircraft, and people at SpaceX encouraged her to get a license as a certified masseur for her penny.

During a flight to London in 2016, she claimed that Musk acted inadequately during the massage. Here’s how Insider reported the incident:

The flight attendant told her friend that the billionaire SpaceX and founder of Tesla asked her to go into his room during a flight in late 2016 “for a full body massage”, the declaration said. When she arrived, the guard found that Musk “was completely naked, except for the sheet that covered the lower half of his body.” During the massage, the declaration said, Musk “bared his genitals” and then “touched her and offered to buy her a horse if she” does more “, meaning sexual intercourse.”

After abandoning an alleged demand for sexual services, the flight attendant reportedly told her friend that she had become less likely to receive orders for the SpaceX aircraft.

In 2018, the flight attendant hired an employment lawyer and reported the incident to SpaceX.

It is reported that SpaceX gave her $ 250,000 as part of the weekend package:

The employee’s complaint was quickly resolved after a meeting with a mediator, which was personally attended by Musk. The case never reached the court or the arbitral tribunal. In November 2018, Musk, SpaceX and the flight attendant signed an exit agreement that gives the department a payment of $ 250,000 in exchange for a promise not to sue over the claims.

It is reported that she also signed the NDA, and Insider it sounded as if that’s why the story is based on an unnamed friend’s story about what the flight attendant told her.

Insider said that after they turned to Mask for comment, Tesla’s CEO asked for more time to respond, and said there was “a lot more” in the story. He added:

“If I were inclined to engage in sexual harassment, it would hardly be the first time in my 30-year career,” he wrote, calling the story a “politically motivated hit.”

According to the publication, Musk did not add anything after he was given more time.

We contacted Mask and his attorney by email to get a comment, and we’ll update that story when we get a response.

Although he did not comment on the story directly, Musk spoke of politically motivated attacks on him yesterday, when he was probably already aware of the story and after being asked Insider more time to respond.

Over the past few months, the director general has intensified negative comments about the Democratic Party and “wakefulness”. Yesterday he said he would vote for the Republican in the future:

The CEO said that “political attacks” on him “will escalate sharply in the coming months”, even though he knew questions from Insider most likely, this will lead to the release of this story.
