The incident allegedly occurred during a flight to London in Elon Musk’s jet. The flight attendant hired a California lawyer in 2018. According to Insider, they reached an agreement after meeting with a mediator. Then, in November 2018, Space X paid the woman $250 000, he said.
SpaceX President and COO Gwynne Shotwell defended Musk after the sexual misconduct allegations surfaced. “Personally, I believe the allegations to be false; not because I work for Elon, but because I have worked closely with him for 20 years and never seen nor heard anything resembling these allegations.”
Elon Musk had predicted just two days ago that the political attacks on him would increase. After announcing on May 18 that he would vote Republican in the future, he added the telling remark on Twitter: “Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold…”
