Elon Musk Exposed Himself To Flight Attendant, Reports Claim

The world’s richest man, Elon Musk, allegedly paid $250,000 for a woman’s silence after exposing himself to her, according to Business Insider.

Documents show that a flight attendant, who is not named, was paid $250,000 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against him in 2018. Musk allegedly exposed his penis to her on a flight. The woman is reportedly an attendant for SpaceX, Musk’s aerospace company.

The incident allegedly happened in 2016. The documents reported on by Business Insider claims that the woman was encouraged to obtain a masseuse license so she could give Musk massages. The attendant allegedly told a friend that Musk propositioned her while she gave him a full body massage.

She claimed Musk was “completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body”. He later exposed his genitals to her, touched her and offered to buy her a horse if she performed sexual acts.

Response to Allegations

Musk has called the story a “politically motivated hit piece”. He says “the attacks against me should be viewed through a political lens”.


The attendant reportedly declined Musk’s offer, saying she felt she was pushed out for refusing to “prostitute herself”.

The attendant hired an employment lawyer in 2018, who sent a complaint to SpaceX. The matter was settled outside of court, and she was granted the $250,000 in exchange for agreeing not to sue. She was also barred from discussing the matter and disclosing any further information about Musk and his businesses.

Musk said “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.” He also tried to dismiss the story by bringing up free speech, saying “nothing will deter me from fighting for a good future and your right to free speech.”
