Elon Musk Paid Flight Attendant $250K Settlement After Propositioning Her for Sex: Report

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty for The Met Museum/VogueElon Musk paid a flight attendant for SpaceX’s corporate jet fleet $250,000 after she claimed that he had propositioned her her sex during a massage on a flight to London, Insider reported on Thursday, citing a declaration filed by a friend of the attendant and filed in support of her claim. The woman then signed what Insider describes as “restrictive non-disclosure and non-disparagement clauses that bar the attendant from ever discussing the severance payment or disclosing any information of any kind about Musk and his businesses.” Musk denied the publication’s claim, saying that there “is a lot more to this story” and calling the reporting a “politically motivated hit piece.” The flight attendant told her friend that Musk had asked her t...

Thomas Tuchel insists N’Golo Kante remains ‘key’ for Chelsea after Manchester United transfer link

Thomas Tuchel admits N’Golo Kante’s injury record at Chelsea this season is a ‘concern’ (Getty)Thomas Tuchel has stressed that N’Golo Kante remains a ‘key’ player for Chelsea and has urged the club to find a solution to the midfielder’s injury problems. The World Cup winner has started just 20 games in the Premier League this term and looked off the pace in the 1-1 draw with Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening. Kante has been linked with a surprise move to Manchester United this summer, with Erik ten Hag keen on strengthening his options in central midfield ahead of next season. But Tuchel believes Kante’s importance to Chelsea is equivalent to Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk at Liverpool but admits the 31-year-old’s injury issues this season have been a ‘conce

Proposed Nebraska mine has sizeable deposit of rare elements

The mining company that wants to extract a rare heat-resistant element from the ground under southeast Nebraska says a new report shows the deposit it plans to mine holds a significant amount of other rare elements. NioCorp Developments said Thursday that the latest analysis shows the amount of rare earth elements present where it plans to build the mine about 80 miles (130 kilometers) south of Omaha near the town of Elk Creek is the second largest deposit in the United States. The Centennial, Colorado-based company estimates that there are 632.9 kilotons of rare earth elements there. Those elements are needed to make the powerful magnets used in electric vehicles and other high-tech products. But the company is still working on analyzing the latest data on the project to determine if it...

Rams’ Justin Hollins claims inside track at outside linebacker

As the Rams prepare to begin the next phase of spring workouts next week, they’re a team with plenty of changes on the roster but few looming battles for starting roles. One position where there should be competition is the outside linebacker spot left with a Pro Football Hall of Fame-shaped hole when Von Miller departed as a free agent, as did Ogbonnia Okoronkwo and Justin Lawler. On Thursday, Justin Hollins laid down a marker. The three-year backup, now listed first on most unofficial depth charts, said the Rams have capable replacements for Miller. And he said he’s confident he’ll be the starter when the season opens in September. “Very confident,” Hollins said in a Zoom chat with L.A. reporters. “It is a position up for grabs at the moment. We’re going to compete in the room, with Chri

Turner Sports announced on Thursday that Wednesday’s Game 1 of the Western Conference finals was TNT’s most-watched conference finals game since 2018 — when the Warriors played the Rockets in a seven-game slugfest on TNT.

A mom drove her daughter to Blackhawk to meet the girl’s secret dad for the first time. An hour later they were both dead in the backyard pool

On Feb. 12, a 31-year-old Hollister woman named Llaneth Chavez strapped her 4-year-old daughter, Malaya, into her car seat and began the two-hour drive north to the gated community of Blackhawk, for what was to be a monumental day. Malaya’s mother and father met when Chavez started working at a gas station chain owned by his family. For the past four years, he’d financially supported Malaya but kept the girl a secret, out of fear of what would happen if his parents found out. But that day, he’d finally agreed to meet her for the first time, and go out for ice cream cones. Instead, about an hour after arriving at the home on East Ridge Court, Chavez and Malaya would wind up dead in the backyard swimming pool, an incident with no known witnesses that still remains shrouded in mystery.

Everything to Remember Ahead of ‘Stranger Things 4’

“It’s been three whole years since “Stranger Things 3” premiered on Netflix, the third installation in the Duffer brothers’ sci-fi drama laced with ‘80s nostalgia. The series returns to Netflix on May 27, with a new season set six months after the events of “Stranger Things 3.” Since it’s been a lot longer than that for those outside Hawkins, here’s a little refresher on what’s going on with the Upside Down, the Mind Flayer, and that girl with superpowers. 1. What’s Going on with The Upside Down?  Once described as “home, but it’s so dark,” the nefarious parallel dimension that haunts Hawkins is still at large and seeping into our world. When the Mind Flayer took hold of Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) in Season 2, it was eventually banished from Will’s body, while Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) us

The Twist That Could Make Monkeypox a Serious Problem

Photo Illustration by Luis G. Rendon/The Daily Beast/GettyEven as the coronavirus pandemic continues to kill hundreds of Americans a day, monkeypox, a viral disease that can cause serious flu-like symptoms and a distinctive and unsightly crop of papules all over the patient’s face and body, has arrived. The first case of monkeypox in the U.S. this year came with a man in Massachusetts who was recently in Canada, and New York City was reportedly investigating a possible case on Thursday. So far, that’s not cause for alarm. While it is endemic to—or traditionally found in—West Africa, this is certainly not the virus’ first visit to American shores, even since the COVID-19 crisis began. And it is by no means a new virus. However, if monkeypox is now spreading fairly easily from person-to-per...

MI5 spy ‘attacked girlfriend with machete and made her watch executions’

X, who cannot be named, allegedly used his status as an MI5 spy to abuse his partner (Picture: Greg Mathieson/REX/Shutterstock)An MI5 spy reportedly used his status to wage a long-running campaign of ‘terror’ against his girlfriend that saw him threaten to kill her. The BBC has reported on the story for the first time after the government took the broadcaster to court in a bid to block the publication of the agent’s identity. In an unprecedented legal battle, the BBC argued that women had a right to know his identity and it would protect potential victims from harm. However, the foreign national cannot be named, despite evidence he is a threat to women. An injunction remains in place to prevent the corporation from disclosing information likely to identify the man, referred to

First deportation flight to Rwanda delayed after legal challenge

The policy has been met with a legal challenge from a migrant charity (Picture: AP)The government has been forced to delay its first deportation flights to Rwanda after campaigners lodged a legal campaign against the controversial policy. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said last weekend that 50 asylum seekers have already been told they are due to be flown to the East African nation within a fortnight, which would be the end of May, but anticipated opposition to the move. Campaigners said they received notice on Wednesday evening that the Rwanda flights will now not take place until at least June 6. It comes as an inquiry is launched into the handling of the deal amid accusations of Parliament being bypassed. Clare Moseley, founder of refugee charity Care4Calais, said she was ‘re

Draymond Green wants to flaunt a fourth ring in Charles Barkley’s face

Charles Barkley has been candid about his disdain for San Francisco and doubt in the Warriors’ odds to win the Western Conference finals. His TNT colleague, Draymond Green, had a response to Barkley’s comments. In Green’s eyes, Barkley is speaking out of fear. Barkley, who didn’t win a championship during his 15-year NBA career, doesn’t want Green to rub a fourth championship ring in his face when the Warriors’ forward eventually joins him on the “Inside the NBA” panel. “If I win another championship, that’s one more ring added to the panel that’s not him,” Green said on Thursday. “I wouldn’t want to see that either, then you really have to hear about it. I get it. I understand. I don’t know how that feels, I always won. I guess I’d feel the same way.” Green added that Barkley can’t contri
