Elon Musk Responds To Azealia Banks' Claims Of Ghosting, Tweeting, And LSD

In 2018, you go unhinged or you go home.

This here is one of them: Tesla chief Elon Musk has denied ever speaking to controversial rapper Azealia Banks, after she launched a furious Instagram Story tirade against Musk's partner Grimes over an allegedly failed musical collaboration.

However, when reached via Twitter direct messages, Musk told Gizmodo that he "has never even met [Banks] or communicated with her in any way". In other words, he doesn't know her.

A spokesperson for Tesla told Jalopnik that Banks' claims were "complete nonsense". She's feuded with everyone from Sarah Palin to Nick Cannon.

Banks further elaborated on her experience in an interview with Business Insider, which was able to confirm Banks' presence "at one of Musk's properties this weekend" via an independent secondary source.

Earlier this summer, Banks revealed that she was working with Grimes, 30, on a song for her album "Fantasea II: The Second Wave", according to NME. But when she got there, Banks says Grimes was busy comforting her boyfriend, and that Banks spent a whole weekend hanging out alone in Musk's mansion. By her telling, Banks was there to collaborate on a song with Musk's girlfriend, the pop star Grimes, but things didn't quite go as planned. "It was probably some weird threesome sex shit to being with". She also said "I could run Tesla better than he does", and added that she thinks Grimes and Musk are "so pitiful".

Every now and again, we here at PEDESTRIAN.TV find ourselves writing sentences which, while factually correct, have seemingly little connection with reality.

Banks and Grimes, however, have been teasing a collaboration on Twitter for months in advance of Bank's new album. "I saw him in the kitchen tucking his tail in between his legs scrounging for investors to cover his a** after that tweet".

It's extraordinarily hard to shock anyone this late in the Internet Beef game, yet Banks has delivered.
