SpaceX allegedly paid a flight attendant $250,000 to make sure she wouldn’t talk to or sue the company after Elon Musk made her advances on an airplane, according to a Business Insider report.
A Business Insider article claims that: a SpaceX contract stewardess has been paid $250,000 by the company silence after reporting that the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, took off his pants and made overtures to her during a massage on a flight to London in 2016.
The woman went on to sign in 2018 what Business Insider describes as “disclosure and non-disparagement covenants,” which prohibit the flight attendant from discussing termination or information of any kind. about Musk and his companies. As a reminder, the billionaire had recently announced that he wanted to buy Twitter, but the transaction was suspended.

The flight attendant’s statement shows that in 2016, Musk exposed his erect penis to her and then offered to buy him a horse in exchange for an erotic massage† He also rubbed her leg without permission and asked her to “do more” during a massage, according to the documents. The flight attendant and her boyfriend, who shared a signed statement with Business Insider in support of the flight attendant’s story and used in her lawsuit against SpaceX regarding the incident, are not identified in the article.
Asked about the matter, Musk said he wanted a little more time to respond because “a lot of other things should be clarified.” He added: “If I was prone to sexual harassment, it’s unlikely to be the first time it’s come to light in my entire 30-year career.” At this time, Elon Musk is presumed innocent in this case, but it’s up to the judge to decide. The billionaire is not alone in currently being accused of sexual harassment, as Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has faced such allegations for several years now.
