Elon Musk, the co-founder and CEO of Tesla, has been accused of harassing SpaceX private flight attendant in 2016.
The allegations belonged to the time when Musk, who is on the top of the Forbes Rich List was celebrating his relationship with actress Amber Heard amid reports of his divorce with Talulah Riley.
According to Business Insider’s reports, Musk’s aerospace firm paid an amount of $250,000 as compensation to the alleged victim in 2018.
The flight attendant had accused the business tycoon of demanding ‘more’ during a massage.
Meanwhile, Musk has rejected the allegations, saying these are “politically motivated”.
“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 said.
