Azealia Banks is now screenshotting Grimes’ text messages

It’s going to be awkward in the House of Musk now

Azealia Banks is coming through with receipts after Elon Musk’s team tried to deny her claims about what she saw while staying in the tech entrepreneur’s home, while she waited to make music with his girlfriend Grimes. While Grimes has not responded to any of the claims as of yet, Azealia has screenshotted some conversations from the producer / pop auteur to back up her claims that the couple lead an unorthodox life.

Some of the damaging claims made pertained to the Tesla boss tweeting while on acid. It came after he publicly announced he had “funding secured” to take Tesla private at $420 a share which opened up opportunities for shareholders to sue Tesla for fraud.

A new round of screenshots from iPhone messages and the Signal messaging app, allegedly show Grimes talking about his new love of “420”. “He just got into weed because of me and he’s super entertained by 420, so when he decided to take the stock private he calculated it was worth $419 so he rounded up to 420 for a laugh,” the iPhone message reads. “Now the sec is investigating him for fraud.”

As well as this damningly uncool description of Elon, more texts that appear to be from Grimes show her asking Azealia to get pregnant at the same time as her, to which Azealia replies: “sober up then get pregnant”. And, one where Grimes alleges that Elon is well endowed.

There isn’t much left to say about this bizarre pop culture chapter other than: Azealia Banks’ life must be a high-octane surrealist art performance that she’s been planning since her LaGuardia art school days to shed light on the lunacy and shallow nature of the entertainment industry. It’s the only logical conclusion because everything she tweets or Instagrams belongs on the walls of a museum.
