Elon Musk faces lawsuit from former Twitter executives over unpaid severance

Elon Musk faces lawsuit from former Twitter executives over

In the latest Elon Musk legal battle, four former Twitter executives, including ex-CEO Parag Agrawal, filed a complaint on Monday, claiming unpaid compensation totaling more than $128 million.

Following Musk's acquisition of Twitter, he fired Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, and lawyers Sean Edgett and Vijay Gadde. 

According to the lawsuit, Musk harbours hatred towards these individuals, who played critical roles in holding him accountable for his $44 billion commitment to the firm.

The lawsuit, citing Walter Isaacson's biography of Musk, claims Musk promised to persistently pursue the former Twitter executives. 

Gadde, in particular, has received negative internet comments after Musk uploaded memes insulting her.

This legal action adds to Musk's already difficult situation, as former Twitter employees file claims for unpaid severance. 

Musk's ownership of Twitter has resulted in further legal issues, such as unpaid rent disputes and eviction proceedings.

Despite Musk's assertions of "gross negligence" and "willful misconduct" in termination letters, the complaint argues he failed to back up these claims.

Critics perceive Musk's practices as a purposeful attempt to avoid financial duties, using legal processes to burden those seeking just compensation.
