Former Twitter execs sue Elon Musk over severance payments

·1 min

A group of former executives has filed a lawsuit against Elon Musk, seeking to recover over $128 million in unpaid severance. The executives, including a former CEO, CFO, and legal officers of Twitter, were fired shortly after Musk acquired the company now known as X. The lawsuit alleges that Musk refused to pay the severance as revenge for being forced into the acquisition deal. The lawsuit claims that Musk made false allegations of gross negligence and willful misconduct to justify not paying the severance. This is just one of several lawsuits filed by former Twitter employees related to Musk’s acquisition of the company.
