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.

"They bring me out there on the premise that we would hang and make music", Banks claimed via DM. She called Musk out for his white privilege and his family's colonial ties, and criticized him for not giving back to the African continent exploited by his ancestors - deeming him a "fake ass libertarian shit bag".

In "how did this even happen?" news, Azealia Banks claims to have had quite the experience at businessman Elon Musk's house.

Banks said Musk seemed distracted over the course of the weekend after tweeting his plans to take Tesla private last week and saying funding was "secured". "He was stressed and red in the face".

Apparently, it's very easy to get into Elon Musk's house. Banks wasn't done with Grimes either, claiming that the Canadian pop star and producer had begged her to come to L.A.to work with her "crusty ass".

Banks told Business Insider she found out Musk does not have funding secured for the vehicle company's privatization. "Grimes has yet to comment directly on Banks" social media outburst, but when one Twitter follower asked what was going on with the collaboration, she suggested it was still in the works.

In Sexist & Racist Attack, Trump Calls Omarosa "Crazed" and a "Dog"
In response to Omarosa's writing, Donald Trump has tweeted that she is a "dog" and a "crazed, crying lowlife". I don't think words like that should be used - especially by the president.

The Washington Post had previously reported on Manigault Newman's account of the conversation with Trump the day after her firing. The recording, if anything, seems to demonstrate Omarosa's own alleged shortcomings given that she was sacked with cause.

Thousands rally to demand Romanian government resignation
Romania ranks as one of the EU's most corrupt states, and its justice system is kept under special monitoring by Brussels. In Bucharest , some protesters attempted to force their way through security lines guarding government buildings.

When reached for comment, Musk told Gizmodo over a Twitter message that he "has never even met [Banks] or communicated with her in any way". An independent secondary source confirmed that Banks was at one of Musk's properties over the weekend.

Banks says Musk was panicked after his Tuesday tweet, when he announced he was considering taking the firm private at $420 per share, adding that funding was 'secured'.

For the record, Musk's press team has told Spin that the couple did not invite Banks over for a threesome, calling it "absolute nonsense". She then went on to compare the waiting to an episode of the television series, Get Out, which shows ladies going to different locations for adventures.

This isn't the first time Banks has made unproven claims against celebrities. In 2016, she slammed Beyoncé on Twitter and accused her of stealing from other artists.

"I could run Tesla better than he does", Banks said of Musk on Monday to Business Insider.
