News recently broke that SpaceX settled a claim of sexual misconduct against Elon Musk for $250,000.
Insider broke the story on Thursday and shared that a flight attendant working on SpaceX’s corporate jet 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,” wrote Insider.
She was also encouraged to get a massage therapy license so she could massage Musk on their flights.
The incident is said to have taken place in 2016 and the settlement was paid out in 2018. The details of the Insider story are taken from a declaration signed by the attendant’s friend that was prepared to support the attendant’s claim. There are other documents, including emails, that were shared with Insider by the friend.
According to reports, the attendant confided in the friend that she was encouraged to get her massage license and was propositioned.
Space X Vice President of legal, Christopher Cardaci, said, “I’m not going to comment on any settlement agreements.”
