Elon Musk on Thursday evening responded to a sexual assault allegation from a SpaceX flight attendant.
A SpaceX flight attendant claimed Elon Musk ‘exposed himself’ to her, rubbed her leg and offered to buy her a horse in exchange for sexual favors in 2016, Business Insider reported.
Via Business Insider:
The attendant worked as a member of the cabin crew on a contract basis for SpaceX’s corporate jet fleet. She accused Musk of exposing his erect penis to her, rubbing her leg without consent, and offering to buy her a horse in exchange for an erotic massage, according to interviews and documents obtained by Insider.
The incident, which took place in 2016, is alleged in a declaration signed by a friend of the attendant and prepared in support of her claim. The details in this story are drawn from the declaration as well as other documents, including email correspondence and other records shared with Insider by the friend.
According to the declaration, the attendant confided to the friend that after taking the flight attendant job, she was encouraged to get licensed as a masseuse so that she could give Musk massages. It was during one such massage in a private cabin on Musk’s Gulfstream G650ER, she told the friend, that Musk propositioned her.
The hit piece comes just days after Elon Musk came out against the establishment and said he will be voting Republican.
Elon Musk told Business Insider “there’s a lot more to the story.”
Musk also fired off a series of tweets responding to the years-old sexual assault claims.
“The attacks against me should be viewed through a political lens – this is their standard (despicable) playbook – but nothing will deter me from fighting for a good future and your right to free speech,” Elon Musk said.
Musk said the accusations are “utterly untrue.”
Throughout the latest smear, Elon Musk still has a sense of humor and called the scandal “Elongate”
