However, in 2018, SpaceX paid the air hostess to settle a sexual misconduct allegation against Elon Musk.
According to sources, the flight attendant, who used to work on a contract basis for SpaceX’s corporate jet fleet, accused Musk of exposing himself to her, rubbing her leg without consent, and offering to purchase her a horse or an exotic massage.
In addition, the sources said, “A document signed by a friend of the attendant and prepared in support of her claim alleges the incidence. The declaration and additional papers, including email conversations and other materials, are given to Insider by the friend, were used to create this story.”
According to the declaration, the flight attendant informed a friend that she was pushed to earn a massage license so she could massage Musk when she got the job.
She further said Musk propositioned her during a massage session in a private cabin on Musk’s Gulfstream G650ER.

Musk invited the flight attendant to his room for a full-body massage during a flight in 2016, the flight attendant informed her acquaintance.
Moreover, she stated in her declaration that she discovered him “totally naked save for a sheet covering the bottom half of his body” when she entered his room.
Musk “exposed his genitals” during the massage, according to the declaration, and then “touched her and offered to purchase her a horse if she would ‘do more.”
Musk told Insider that there is “a lot more to this story” when sought for comment.
“If I were inclined to participate in sexual harassment, this is unlikely to be the first time in my entire 30-year career that it comes to light,” he said of the report, which he described as “politically motivated.”
