He could face legal action after withdrawing his £35billion Twitter transfer agreement.
but Elon Musk appeared to put his problems behind him on Monday as he enjoyed a yacht excursion off the coast of Mykonos. Greece.
That Tesla Inventor, 51, was joined on the trip by bikini-clad fashion designer Sarah Staudinger, 33, founder of fashion brand Staud, and her husband, superstar agent – and inspiration for HBO’s entourage – Ari Emanuel, 61.

The outing comes after Elon withdrew from buying the social media platform after raising concerns that Twitter had been misled about the number of fake accounts, but he has not provided any evidence to back his claims.
He originally agreed to a $1 billion separation fee as part of the acquisition agreement, though it appears Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and the company are entering legal action to force the sale.
The founder of electric car company Tesla sent a letter to Twitter saying he was pulling out of the controversial deal he struck in April to buy the platform for $54.20 a share, or $44 billion in total.
Such merger agreements “should prevent buyers from getting cold feet and deciding they want to leave,” legal expert Lipton said.
Alongside Musk’s allegations of Twitter’s “false and misleading representations” about the number of fake accounts, lawyers also point to the recent firings and hiring freezes of Twitter employees who they say contradict the company’s commitment to business as usual.
Those arguments may be valid, but they don’t merit going out of business, says Lipton, dismissing them as “fussy.”
That leaves open the possibility that the multi-billionaire is actually trying to negotiate the price down.
This tactic has been used successfully elsewhere, such as by LVMH. Two years ago, the global luxury giant canceled a deal to acquire Tiffany before receiving a discount.
But experts don’t see how Musk and Twitter could agree on a different price at this point, given that the platform’s stock has lost more than a quarter of its value since late April.
