Elon Musk allegedly asked SpaceX employee to have his babies

Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, has come under scrutiny following reports from The Wall Street Journal that he asked a former SpaceX employee to have his babies. According to unnamed sources, the employee left the company in 2013 and accused Musk of making the request multiple times. The woman declined the offer, and her working relationship with Musk deteriorated, with sources claiming that Musk also denied her a raise.

The Journal reported that the SpaceX employee received an exit package valued above $1 million when she left the company. Elon Musk and Tesla did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the matter.

Musk, a well-known advocate of the pronatalist movement, has 10 known children and has previously expressed concerns about falling birth rates leading to the collapse of global civilization. He has also had children with another employee, the executive Shivon Zilis of Neuralink, whom he encouraged to have children and offered to be a sperm donor.

This is not the first time SpaceX and Musk have faced allegations regarding the treatment of female employees. Former employees have accused SpaceX executives of joking about sexual harassment and firing workers for raising concerns. In addition, a former SpaceX engineer published an essay accusing the company of fostering a sexist environment.

SpaceX also paid a flight attendant $250,000 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against Musk in 2018. The cabin crew member accused Musk of exposing himself and offering her a horse in exchange for an erotic massage, which Musk denied as "utterly untrue."

Overall, these allegations raise questions about the workplace culture at SpaceX and Elon Musk's behavior towards female employees. The company has faced previous accusations of fostering a sexist environment, highlighting the need for further scrutiny and accountability in addressing these issues.
