Musk says Tesla now in "delivery logistics hell"

Tesla CEO Elon Musk

Entrepreneur Elon Musk is facing a defamation claim from Vernon Unsworth, the diver who played a key role in rescuing the group of 12 boys and their soccer coach from a Thai cave in July.

It says Mr Musk sometimes used his Twitter account and emails to "publish to the world false and defamatory accusations" against the Briton. Unsworth told CNN, Elon's sub was a "PR stunt" that "had absolutely no chance of working".

Later on September 4, however, Musk accused Unsworth of moving to Thailand to be with a bride who was about 12 years old.

Tesla's efforts to ramp up production of its Model 3 electric sedan have gone from "production hell" to "delivery logistics hell", according to its chief executive Elon Musk.

The 47-year-old billionaire who earlier this month faced investor ire over smoking marijuana on a live web show, has indicated in the past that Tesla's customers may face a longer response time because of a significant increase in vehicle delivery volume in North America.

He earlier said the storm system "is unloading epic amounts of rainfall: in some places, measured in feet, not inches". Earlier the two states announced evacuation of coastal areas with a population of more than 1.5 million people.

Then in a second email to BuzzFeed, he accused Unsworth of being a liar and said he was not on the cave dive team. The documents said a separate lawsuit would be filed in England. He met his current girlfriend in Thailand in 2011.

On June 23, when the football players became trapped, Unsworth was called by several Thai officials who asked him to go to the cave as soon as possible. He also said he had never seen Unsworth while at the scene, despite the United Kingdom national being the first foreign rescuer to join the evacuation effort.

However, he said that did not justify Mr Musk's use of Twitter and the media to defame him.

Musk later accused Unsworth of moving to Thailand to be with a bride who was about 12 years old.

Unsworth filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles on Monday, demanding at least $75,000 (€64,200) in compensation from the billionaire. "Musk's influence and wealth can not convert his lies into truth or protect him from accountability for his wrongdoing in a court of law", his lawyer Lin Wood, wrote in a statement emailed to ABC News.
