Air hostess who accused Musk of sexual misconduct paid $2,50,000 by SpaceX to keep quiet: Report
A flight attendant who accused SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk of sexually harassing her on a flight in 2016, was reportedly paid $2,50,000 to remain silent on the matter.
The air hostess was paid by SpaceX in 2018 to settle the claim of sexual misconduct against Elon Musk.
The attendant, who used to work on a contract basis for the corporate jet fleet of SpaceX, accused Musk of exposing himself to her,
rubbing her leg without consent and offering to buy her a horse or an erotic massage, the Business Insider reported.
"The incident 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," added the Business Insider report.
According to the declaration, the attendant told her friend that after taking the flight attendant job,
she was pushed to get licensed as a masseuse so that she could give massages to Musk.
She further said during one such massage session, in a private cabin on Musk's Gulfstream G650ER, he propositioned her.
