Errol Musk, aged 77, expressed his concerns to The U.S. Sun that his billionaire son, Elon Musk, could face assassination threats.
He criticized a recent article in The New Yorker, which delved into the influence wielded by the world’s wealthiest individual.
-Reports on Elon-
The New Yorker reported that Pentagon officials regarded Elon Musk as an “unelected official.”
Pentagon officials also raised apprehensions about his stance toward Vladimir Putin. The article also underscored the pivotal role played by SpaceX’s Starlink satellites in the Ukraine conflict.
Errol Musk, in an interview with The U.S. Sun, characterized the article as a “hit job” orchestrated by a shadow government to target Elon Musk.
Consequently, when asked if he feared the possibility of the “shadow government” attempting to assassinate his son, he responded affirmatively with a “Yes.”
-Musk family dysfunction-
It is evident that the SpaceX CEO and his father have a strained relationship.
Billionaire son Elon Musk has previously described him as a “terrible human being.”
However, Errol Musk further described The New Yorker article to The U.S. Sun as a prelude to an impending attack.
Nevertheless, Errol went on to liken it to “the artillery-like softening up of the enemy before the actual attack.”
-Elon’s controversial comments-
In May of the previous year, Elon Musk made a seemingly jesting remark about the potential of dying under mysterious circumstances.
Coincidentally, this followed a disagreement with Russia’s space chief regarding SpaceX’s provision of Starlink terminals to Ukrainian soldiers.
An engineer from X, the company formerly known as Twitter, disclosed that two bodyguards closely shadowed Elon Musk.
Additionally, these bodyguards even accompany him to the restroom. Musk built a bathroom next to his office at X. Consequently, Musk didn’t want to disturb his security personnel
-Elon tracking incident-
Elon Musk’s own concerns about security became prominently evident during the controversy surrounding the tracking of his private jet.
Incidentally, Journalists who shared links to the @ElonJet account on X were temporarily barred. Musk proceeded to accuse them of harbouring harmful intentions toward him.
Interesting that Musk’s son’s car was being actively tracked. The car tail was by a “crazy stalker who mistook it for me.”
With Musk’s upfront approach to tech business, it is anyone’s guess what he will do next.
