Azealia Banks Warns She Has 'Plenty More Dirt To Spill' On Elon Musk

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.

"I may be a lot of things but a liar is not one of them. Elon will learn very soon who is more powerful of us two."

"Look, he spit at her," he said on The Breakfast Club radio show, via Billboard. "I saw that."

The other incident refers to claims from Azealia Banks that Twitter founder, Jack Dorsey, had sent her clippings of his hair to create an amulet. These claims were confirmed in a Vanity Fair feature on Dorsey -- via Vice -- but only after initial headlines had generated plenty of criticism toward Banks.

"Lol I waited around all weekend while Grimes coddled her boyfriend for being too stupid to know not to go on Twitter while on acid," she wrote.

At the same time, Musk was tweeting that he had secured funding to take Tesla private at $420 a share. As Inquisitr reported, Musk was forced to resign as Tesla chairman and was fined $20 million over the claims, which turned out to be untrue.

At the time, Musk told Gizmodo he "has never even met [Banks] or communicated with her in any way."
