El CEO de SpaceX , Elon Musk , negó un reclamo de agresión sexual de un ex asistente de vuelo, a quien la compañía supuestamente pagó $ 250,000 como parte de un acuerdo de indemnización en 2018.

Musk, en un tuit del jueves después de la historia, afirmó que la historia debería ser “vista a través de una lente política”.

El asistente trabajó por contrato en la tripulación de cabina de la flota de aviones corporativos de SpaceX. Acusó a Musk de exponerle su pene erecto, frotarle la pierna sin su consentimiento y ofrecerle comprarle un caballo a cambio de un masaje erótico, según Business Insider.

Una declaración firmada por el amigo del asistente detalló el incidente, que supuestamente tuvo lugar en 2016. La correspondencia por correo electrónico y otros registros, que el amigo proporcionó a Business Insider, supuestamente corroboran las afirmaciones. Según los informes, el asistente le dijo a su amiga que SpaceX la animó a obtener una licencia como masajista, para que pudiera dar masajes a Musk. Ella dijo que Musk le hizo proposiciones durante uno de esos masajes.

Musk negó las afirmaciones sexuales en una breve declaración a Business Insider, insistiendo en que hay “mucho más en esta historia”.

NBA owners were scrutinized Thursday as a new report detailed just how much money some have tied up in Chinese investments.

NBA owners have around $10 billion in Chinese ventures despite the government’s authoritarian crackdown on free speech and the imprisonment of Uyghur Muslims in the country, ESPN reported, citing a study conducted by a New York-based firm called Strategy Risks.

The study highlighted the investments of Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan, Miami Heat owner Mickey Arison, Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai, Sacramento Kings co-owner Paul Jacobs, Memphis Grizzlies owner Robert Pera, Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta and Philadelphia 76ers’ principal owner Joshua Harris.

While some owners endorsed the NBA’s initiative to highlight social justice efforts in the United States, all have remained quiet on China’s human rights violations. China’s crackdown on Hong Kong protesters in 2019 over a new national security law came to the forefront of the league.

Then-Rockets general manager Daryl Morey tweeted his support for Hong Kong protesters as the Nets were about to face off against the Los Angeles Lakers in Shanghai. Morey tweeted “Fight For Freedom. Stand With Hong Kong,” before deleting it after backlash.

The tweet had a ripple effect throughout the NBA. China would pull NBA games off its state-owned TV only to return ahead of this season’s NBA playoffs, ESPN reported.

Tsai, who was born in Taiwan, is a naturalized Canadian citizen who holds a Hong Kong passport. He is a co-founder and executive chairman of Alibaba and, in addition to the Nets, owns the WNBA’s New York Liberty and the San Diego Seals of the National Lacrosse League. He reportedly had a rift with Morey over the Hong Kong tweet but denied accusations of uninviting Morey to the Barclays Center for a game between the Rockets and Nets.

Oil prices fell on Friday as investors worried that weakening global economic growth and tighter central bank monetary policy could curb a recovery in fuel demand.

Brent futures for July fell 59 cents, or 0.53%, to $111.45 a barrel by 0648 GMT, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude for June fell 56 cents, or 0.5%, to $111.65 on its last day as the front-month.

The more actively traded WTI contract for July was down 0.8% at $109.01 a barrel.The International Monetary Fund (IMF) urged Asian economies to be mindful of spillover risks from monetary tightening.

Asian economies faced a choice between supporting growth with more stimulus and withdrawing it to stabilize debt and inflation, IMF Deputy Managing Director Kenji Okamura said.

While Bank of Japan policy runs counter to a global shift towards monetary tightening, central banks in the United States, Britain and Australia raised interest rates recently.

Las ganancias del crudo han sido limitadas esta semana, con el Brent y el WTI cotizando principalmente en un rango debido a la incertidumbre de la demanda. Los inversores, preocupados por el aumento de la inflación y la acción más agresiva de los bancos centrales, han estado reduciendo la exposición a activos de mayor riesgo.
