According to reports, a flight attendant who accused SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk of sexually harassing her on a flight in 2016 was given $250,000 to be silent.



In 2018, SpaceX paid the air hostess to settle a sexual misconduct lawsuit against Elon Musk.

According to Business Insider, the attendant, who used to work on a contract basis for SpaceX's corporate jet fleet, accused Musk of exposing himself to her, caressing her leg without consent, and offering to purchase her a horse or an exotic massage.

"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 that during one such massage session, in a private cabin on Musk's Gulfstream G650ER, he propositioned her.

The flight attendant told her friend that in 2016, Musk asked her to come to his room during a flight for a full-body massage. She said in her declaration that when she came to his room, she found him "completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body."

During the massage, the declaration said, Musk "exposed his genitals" and then "touched her and offered to buy her a horse if she would "do more".

When asked for a comment, Musk told Insider there was "a lot more to this story."

He called the report 'politically motivated', adding, "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."

In a tweet late Thursday, Musk said in a tweet that “wild accusations” against him are not true.

He did not explain what those accusations were. But his response came after a Business Insider report on Thursday said the aerospace company had paid $250,000 in severance to a flight attendant who accused the billionaire of sexual misconduct.
