Elon Musk sued for demanding private bathroom for not disturbing the bodyguards

Elon Musk is facing allegations in a recent lawsuit where it is claimed that he sought the construction of a bathroom adjacent to his office at Twitter’s headquarters. The motive behind this alleged request, as stated in the lawsuit, was to avoid disturbing his bodyguards during late-night bathroom visits. Filed by six ex-Twitter employees, the lawsuit targets both Musk and X. Corp, the holding company of Twitter, and has been brought before the District Court of Delaware on Tuesday.

The lawsuit accuses the defendants of engaging in 14 violations, such as fraud, breach of contract, and labor-rights laws. However, it also provides a wealth of information about the internal affairs of the bird company during Musk’s tenure as its CEO.

In March, a Twitter engineer revealed to the BBC that Elon Musk was accompanied by a minimum of two bodyguards at the company’s San Francisco headquarters, even when visiting the restroom. According to the lawsuit, Steve Davis, the CEO of the Boring Company, instructed Joseph Killian, one of the plaintiffs who had been with Twitter for 12 years and was responsible for office design, to initiate the construction of a new restroom in closer proximity to Musk’s office.

According to the lawsuit, Musk expressed a desire for the restroom facilities to be located near his office to avoid disturbing his security team and having to traverse a significant distance across the floor during nighttime bathroom visits. In a recent interview with the BBC, Musk mentioned that he occasionally slept on a couch in the library at Twitter’s headquarters. Furthermore, during a CNBC interview on Tuesday, Musk stated that he typically slept approximately six hours per night.

As per the lawsuit, Killian informed Davis that he would initiate the process of obtaining permits for Musk’s restroom. However, the lawsuit alleges that Davis responded by stating, “We don’t do that; we don’t have to comply with those regulations.” Instead, according to the lawsuit, Davis recommended that Killian hire an unlicensed plumber to construct the toilet, as licensed professionals would be reluctant to undertake a project without the necessary permits, fearing potential risks to their licensure.
