Rapper Azealia Banks claims has started a feud between herself, Tech billionaire Elon Musk and his girlfriend Grimes after being stuck at their house over the weekend. But instead, the couple went into hiding as Musk was frantically "scrounging" for investors after his August 7 tweet.

When Gizmodo reached out to Musk for comment over Twitter DM, Musk claimed to have "never even met [Banks] or communicated with her in any way".

Azealia Banks has been teasing the release of Fantasea II: The Second Wave with singles like "Anna Wintour" and "Treasure Island", but it seems she's having a little trouble tracking down collaborators to complete the album (which is apparently not cancelled anymore). She also posted that she believed that Grimes flew her to LA because Musk and Grimes wanted to have a threesome with her. "They invited me here to stay and told me I couldn't bring my boyfriend", she wrote.

A separate source confirmed to the Insider that Banks was at one of Musk's properties over the weekend.

In another story, Banks said that "staying in Elon musks house has been like a real [life] episode of 'Get Out.'" Banks continued to go off on Musk and Grimes over the course of the past 24 hours. If that wasn't odd enough, she added, "I'm going to wait one more day then I'm going to go home". 'He was stressed and red in the face'.

Banks says Musk was panicked after his Tuesday tweet, when he announced he was considering taking the firm private at $420 per share, adding that funding was 'secured'.

The spokesperson referred questions about Tesla funding to the company, which did not respond to request for comment.

The tempestuous rapper, 27, claimed that's exactly what she's been doing on her Instagram story over the weekend. In 2016, she slammed Beyoncé on Twitter for allegedly stealing from other artists. Earlier this year, she started a GoFundMe asking for help to fund a lawsuit against actor Russell Crowe, who she claimed spit on her, choked her, and called her the N-word at a party in 2016. Given that Musk's online presence has become increasingly freaky, investors might be better off checking developments via Azealia Banks' Instagram than ... wherever you check for stock-based news.

"They're so pitiful", she added.
