The founder of Tesla and Space X immediately denied the allegations in a Twitter post. “This is nonsense. Sergey and I are friends and we were at a party together last night!,” he justified. I saw Nicole only twice in three years, and both times surrounded by many other people. Nothing romantic. I haven’t had sex in ages,” after his sigh emoji message.

Asked by a user what his fans can do to counterattack, the businessman replied, “Call them, I think. The WSJ (Wall Street Journal, editor’s note) is supposed to have a high level of journalism, and at the moment it is well below the tabloids. The WSJ should publish stories that are truly important to its readers and have a solid factual basis, not random rumors from third parties.”

Repeated scandals

This new scandal will further tarnish Elon Musk’s reputation. If he is famous for multiplying romantic conquests – the billionaire is the father of nine children from three marriages – then the latter was accused last May of inappropriate behavior towards one of his employees. The American edition of The Insider then reported that the richest man in the world paid the latter $ 250,000 in 2018 to put an end to the lawsuit filed against him. Once again, Elon Musk has chosen Twitter to refute these accusations.
