Sexual Assault Charge Against Elon Musk; Know More About ‘Elongate’
Austin (US): Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has been accused of sexually assaulting an air hostess and later paying her $250,000 to keep her mouth shut.
According to a Business Insider report, the flight attendant — who worked on a contractual basis on SpaceX’s corporate jet fleet — accused Musk of exposing his erect penis, touching her leg without consent and offering to buy her a horse in exchange for an erotic massage.
The allegations were made in a declaration signed by the flight attendant’s friend and prepared in her support.
The declaration stated that the Tesla and SpaceX founder asked the flight attendant to come to his room during a flight in 2016 “for a full body massage”. Musk only had a sheet covering the lower half of his body. The world’s richest man “touched her and offered to buy her a home and a horse if she would do more”. The attendant, who had a fascination to ride horses, declined the offer, Business Insider reported.
Musk, who called the allegations a lie, has himself come up with a name for the scandal – ‘Elongate’.
“If there’s ever a scandal about me, please call it Elongate,” he had tweeted last year.
Defending himself against the charges, Must tweeted: “But I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me ‘exposed’ – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened”.
Musk’s supporters are of the view that these allegations surfaced as he recently said that he would no longer vote for Democratic Party as they have become a party of division and hate, and will vote Republicans.
