Azealia Banks is not happy about a recent court filing from Elon Musk's lawyers that paints the rap star as an unstable liar. The Guardian reports that Musk is currently embroiled in a shareholder lawsuit, that claims Twitter comments on taking automotive company Tesla private constituted market manipulation, costing the plaintiffs hundreds of millions of dollars. They were requesting subpoenas for Musk's musician girlfriend Grimes and Azealia Banks, who reportedly spent the weekend at Musk's house at the time of his controversial tweets.
"It is evident that this is really more of an effort to sensationalize these proceedings than a legitimate attempt to preserve evidence," Musk's attorney Dean Kristy wrote in his filing objecting to the subpoena of Banks. But he may have gone too far to involve her in a lawsuit, in his attempts to portray Azealia as too unreliable.
Banks posted a now-deleted picture on Instagram, with some quotes from the legal document, including a passage saying "she is a veteran of long and nonsensical beefs" and "has a history of making bold and sometimes unverified claims," as reported by The Guardian and TechCrunch.
