Azealia Banks calls Grimes an ‘idiot’ during rant… at Elon Musk’s house? He says he never met her
Back in July, Azealia Banks teased a collaboration with Grimes as one of the unfinished parts of her on again, off again upcoming album, Fantasea II: The Second Wave. In a tweet that's since been deleted, Azealia wrote, “Omg I’m listening to f2!!! All the songs are finished except lorelei and grimes song. I have a session next week with Alex Carapetis to lock lorelei down. Then I go to LA to finish grimes." It was love all around:
According to Azealia, this weekend she did go to LA to do that work with Grimes -- but, as she wrote in a series of Instagram story posts, some of which have been deleted, things didn't quite go according to plan. "Literally been sitting at Elon Musks house alone for days waiting for @grimes to show up and start these sessions," one story (now deleted) reads. "I have no idea when she is coming back. I'm going to wait one more day then I'm going to go home."
Azealia's Instagram activity didn't stop there; she compared staying at Grimes' billionaire boyfriend Elon Musk's house to "a real life episode of 'Get Out,'" theorized they wanted her there for a threesome, and claimed that she "waited around all weekend while Grimes coddled her boyfriend for being too stupid to know not to go on twitter while on acid." (an alleged fact that has people questioning his ability to properly lead companies.)
Business Insider spoke to Azealia about it:
When Business Insider reached out to Banks via Instagram DM, Banks shared further details. According to the rapper, she arrived to one of Musk's homes in Los Angeles early on Friday, August 10 and left the night of Sunday, August 12. An independent secondary source confirmed that Banks was at one of Musk's properties this weekend.
Over the course of the weekend, Banks claimed, the couple essentially went into hiding as Musk sought funding after tweeting about plans to take Tesla private last week. However, she claims, the couple kept stringing her along with the promise of collaborating on music.
"They bring me out there on the premise that we would hang and make music," Banks claimed via DM. "But his dumb--- kept tweeting and tucked his dick in between his a-- cheeks once s--- hit the fan."
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."
"I saw him in the kitchen tucking his tail in between his legs scrounging for investors to cover his a-- after that tweet," she said. "He was stressed and red in the face."
"He's not cute at all in person," Banks added.
Elon Musk meanwhile has responded to Gizmodo:
Musk told Gizmodo that he “has never even met [Banks] or communicated with her in any way.” In other words, he doesn’t know her.
A Tesla spokesperson told our sister site, Jalopnik, that the claims were “complete nonsense,” but Banks is a veteran of long and nonsensical beefs.
