Elon Musk lost $10 billion in net worth in a single day after sexual misconduct claims emerged

Tesla CEO Elon Musk lost $10 billion in just a single day after claims of sexual misconduct against him emerged.

He was worth about $212 billion on Thursday, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. After news of the allegations broke on Thursday night, his wealth fell to around $201 billion, the index showed.

According to Insider’s report, SpaceX, the aerospace firm founded by Musk, paid a flight attendant $250,000 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against Musk in 2018. Musk has denied the claim.

Musk owns around 47% of SpaceX. Last week, the company was estimated to have reached a $125 billion valuation. But it’s a privately-held company, and as such, its valuation doesn’t change much from day to day.

But Musk’s sexual misconduct news and related financial fallout is just the latest incident in a protracted wealth decline since the start of this year. Per Bloomberg’s estimate, he is now more than $69 billion poorer year-to-date. That’s partly because Tesla’s stock price was pulled down amid a global stock-market selloff as investors worried about the health of the global economy. – Source
