How was your weekend? We hope it was good, but we sincerely doubt it was anywhere near as eventful as Azealia Banks' weekend. According to her now-deleted Instagram stories posted on Monday, Banks was posted up in L.A. at Elon Musk's house, where she was reportedly waiting all weekend for his girlfriend, musician Grimes, to collaborate on a new track (possibly for her "cancelled" album Fantasea II). While Banks' story might seem too good to be true, according to Business Insider, an "independent secondary source" confirmed that Banks was indeed at one of Musk's properties over the weekend.

While Musk told Gizmodo that he “has never even met [Banks] or communicated with her in any way” via Twitter direct message, Banks' side of the story is interesting, to say the least. And full of jabs at Musk's appearance and behavior. It all started when Banks shared on her Instagram story, "Literally been sitting at Elon Musk’s house alone for days waiting for @grimes to show up and start these sessions. I have no idea when she is coming back. I’m going to wait one more day then I’m going to go home."

In another set of stories archived below, Banks says "Staying At Elon Musk's house has been like a real life episode of Get Out," continuing with "Lol I waited around all weekend while Grimes coddled her boyfriend for being too stupid to know not to go on Twitter while on acid." 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."

Despite Elon Musk's claims that he has never met Banks, the rapper's direct messages with Business Insider go so far as to suggest that over the weekend he was "scrambling because he in fact - didn't have any funding secured" in relation to his recent decision to take Tesla private. According to the publication, Tesla declined to comment about Banks' claims regarding Musk looking for investors, but Musk's spokesperson said Banks' claims about him taking acid were "utter nonsense."
