"I also spent considerable time listening to current shareholders, large and small, to understand what they think would be in the best long-term interests of Tesla". L. Lin Wood, a defamation lawyer based out of Georgia, tweeted a letter earlier Wednesday dated to August 6, 2018. So much so that Musk logged on to Twitter and proclaimed Unsworth a "pedo", without any evidence to back his claims, to his 22 million followers.
At that point, Musk offered his comment, "You don't think it's unusual he hasn't sued me?"
Rather than responding to a media inquiry on the possible libel suit, Musk lashed out at BuzzFeed News when the outlet asked for comment.
Last month, in a series of tweets, which were later deleted, Musk called cave diver Vern Unsworth a 'pedo guy', after Unsworth criticized Musk's plan to use a mini-submarine in the rescue of young boys trapped in a cave in Thailand.
Shares of the electric vehicle company have plummeted almost 16 percent since Musk's tweet.
The letter, which Wood said was sent to Musk's Bel-Air home, said the lawyer is "in the process of preparing a civil complaint for libel against you". "In an attempt to avoid litigation and to see the public record is corrected, I invite you or your legal representatives to contact me".
Musk then went on to question Olanoff, who's Twitter moniker is "Yoda", about whether he had investigated the case.
Musk is already facing at least five lawsuits and a Securities and Exchange Commission probe over his tweets about potentially taking his electric vehicle company Tesla off the stock market. "He was offered free legal services.' Unsworth's attorney called Musk's tweets 'false and defamatory" in the letter.
The SEC already had been investigating whether Musk's vehicle production forecasts may have misled investors before the regulator started scrutinizing whether he had secured funding for a Tesla buyout, Bloomberg News reported on August 9.
Musk claimed his words were "spoken in anger" after Unsworth allegedly told him to "engage in a sexual act with the mini-sub".
