Grimes and Azealia Banks have been involved in a class action lawsuit against Tesla and Elon Musk by investors, Business Insider reports. A California federal court has agreed to the plaintiffs' request to serve Grimes, Banks and other document filing claims, meaning that they can not destroy anything that can be considered as evidence.
Tesla investors are suing Tesla and Elon Musk over Musk's infamous tweet of where he is wrote"I'm considering taking Tesla privately for $ 420. Secured funding. "According to their lawsuit, seen by Pitchfork, they claim that they were" injured on the order of hundreds of millions of dollars due to Musk's "essentially false and misleading statements and market manipulation".
The plaintiffs demanded a summons from Grimes (aka Claire Elise Boucher) because:
Loud New York Times'
interview [“Elon Musk Details ‘Excruciating’ Personal Toll of Tesla
Turmoil”]Maybe Mrs. Boucher was the last person Musk talked to
before sending the Tweet of 7 August 2018, which is the subject of this action.
According to Mrs. Banks (as in business
insider items [Rapper Azealia Banks claims she was at Elon Musk’s house over
the weekend as he was ‘scrounging for investors’”]), Mrs. Boucher was
with Musk in the hours and days after the tweet. If, like Ms. Banks
claims that Musk has been actively trying to find investors for whom "cover" is required
the tweet, then probably Mrs. Boucher noticed this behavior or overheard
Talks between Musk and potential investors. It is also likely
that Mrs. Boucher as a friend of Musk the Tweet and / or the
Fallout caused by Musk shortly after being sent.
The plaintiffs also explained why Banks should receive a summons:
Ms Banks has proved to be an important source of information on this matter.
As reported by Business Insider, she allegedly watched Musk
Attempt to "cover" the tweet after sending. She was too
in Musk's home in Los Angeles while Musk meets with the
fall out of the tweet and likely relevant events are additionally observed
to those described in the media.
Azaelia Banks claimed Elon Musk was "on the acid" when he sent the tweets about the Tesla privatization. Banks later wrote an open apology letter to Musk.
Elon Musk was not only sued by Tesla investors, but also sued by the SEC in September 2018 for fraud.
