ELON Musk’s alleged stalker breaks his silence, claiming the billionaire stacked him instead and his ex Grimes sent him encrypted messages on Instagram.
Brandon Collado, an Uber Eats driver, identified himself as an alleged stalker and responded to Musk’s tweet on Saturday.
The Twitter CEO shared a clip of Collado being pulled over by a member of his security in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Musk blamed a now-suspended account, @ElonJet, for tracking his private jet’s location using a bot.
He claimed the account shared real-time “assassination coordinates” that threatened his family. However, the Washington Post reported that police found no connection between the confrontation and the jet-tracking account.
“I’m the guy in this video,” Collado reportedly wrote in response.
However, Collado would claim Musk had “connections to me and has been following me and my family for over a year.”
The answer appears to be deleted at the time of writing.
Speaking to The Post, Collado shared that he is interested in the Tesla CEO and musician Grimes, the mother of two of the billionaire’s youngest children.
Collado made “several bizarre and unsubstantiated claims,” according to The Post, and believed Grimes was sending him encrypted messages through her Instagram post.
He also claimed that Musk was monitoring his location and could control Uber Eats to prevent him from receiving delivery orders.
The incident, which involved Collado and Musk’s security personnel, happened near the home where Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, lives.
Grimes herself became a victim of stalking after she was granted a restraining order against a man named Raymond Barrajas in 2018.
Barrajas showed up at Grimes’ home, believing the singer was secretly communicating with him through her music.
Police are investigating the incident involving Collado, who claimed he stopped at a gas station in Grimes’ neighborhood while making Uber Eats deliveries.
He said Musk’s security team confronted him for no reason and linked it to his belief that Musk was tracking his location.
Musk suspended Jack Sweeney, the college student behind the @ElonJet account, after the confrontation.
The site’s rules for pages sharing real-time information have also been changed.
The US Sun has reached out to Musk and Uber for comment.
