Azealia Banks, the prodigious MC who remains a Twitter villain even after being banned from the service and an underground rapper even after being dropped from multiple record labels, let loose on Instagram after an allegedly disastrous weekend at Elon Musk's home to see Grimes, Musk's girlfriend and a fellow musician.

"Literally been sitting at Elon Musks waiting for Grimes to show up and start these sessions", she wrote.

While the rapper admitted she should have stayed in New Yor City she was clearly stunned when Grimes, "had the nerve to go ghost and "book me a first class flight" out of LA. Then I go to LA to finish grimes and oh yes! Banks also had some interesting things to say about Grimes and her intentions in inviting Banks to meet her and Musk, and claimed Musk starting seeing her "all because he needed a date to the Met Gala".

The following day, Azealia updated fans that Grimes never showed up and she left the home.

'Omg I am listening to f2!

A Tesla spokesperson told our sister site, Jalopnik, that the claims were "complete nonsense", but Banks is a veteran of long and nonsensical beefs.

Omarosa: Trump has ‘done nothing’ to stem Chicago violence
Several signees said McGahn made it clear that the agreement was not ultimately enforceable, and was meant only to placate Trump. Critics nevertheless raised concerns that Ms Manigault Newman may be breaching White House security regulations .

However, when reached via Twitter direct messages, Musk told Gizmodo that he "has never even met [Banks] or communicated with her in any way". "They bring me out there on the premise that we would hang and make music", Banks claimed. But instead, the couple went into hiding as Musk was frantically "scrounging" for investors after his August 7 tweet.

In a blog post on Monday, Musk defended his "funding secured" remark last week by stating that he has been approached by the Saudi Arabian sovereign wealth fund to take Tesla private.

Banks also claimed that she was not trying to eavesdrop, but Musk seemed to be scrambling.

Earlier this year Azealia Banks reported that she had plans to finish a track with Grimes that was set to be included on her next album "Fantasea II: The Second Wave".

In an interview with Business Insider, Banks later clarified that Musk's alleged meltdown was about struggling to secure private investors for Tesla after he may have broken the law last week by tweeting about selling Tesla shares for $420. 'He was stressed and red in the face'.

"They're so pitiful", she added.
