Elon Musk accused of engaging in sexual relationships with SpaceX, Tesla employees

High-profile accusations cast shadow on billionaire's companies, highlighting workplace culture concerns

The Wall Street Journal reported Elon Musk has been accused of engaging in sexual relationships with several female SpaceX and Tesla employees, including an intern who was later hired, a woman who worked directly for him, and another who was asked to bear his children.
In 2021, five former SpaceX employees reported a culture of sexual harassment within the company, and a former employee filed a lawsuit alleging sexual abuse and discrimination. Women employees at SpaceX have alleged that Musk showed them an unusual amount of attention or pursued them, and the engineers accused Musk of creating a hostile work environment with sexual photographs, memes, and demeaning commentary.

In 2016, a flight attendant on Musk's private jet alleged that Musk exposed himself and offered to buy her a horse in exchange for sex in 2016. The claim was settled for $250,000.
SpaceX is under investigation by California's civil rights agency for discrimination against women and retaliation against workers who raised concerns.
