Elon Musk is denying a report that SpaceX,the aerospace firm run by the billionaire, settled a sexual misconduct claim made by a flight attendant.
According to Insider reports, the attendant while she worked as part of the cabin crew for the company's corporate jet fleet.
Citing interviews and Insider reports the flight attendant accused Musk of exposing himself and rubbing her leg without any consent.
Musk also suggested the report was published to derail his plans to buy Twitter after reaching a deal to acquire the social media platform in $44 billion.
"It was clear that their only goal was a hit price to interfere with the Twitter acquisition," he wrote, later clarifying that he meant "hit piece."
Before a week, Musk said the deal to acquire Twitter is temporarily on hold until the company can prove less than 5% of accounts on the platform are fake or spam.
