Lawsuit The Crown Vs Musk !

The screenplay is already being written somewhere!

The Guardian reports

Twitter is being sued by landlords in San Francisco and London after failing to pay rent on its offices, as new owner Elon Musk takes on extreme cost-cutting strategies that reportedly include simply not paying the bills.

The crown estate in London, which manages property belonging to King Charles III, filed a claim against Twitter in the high court in the UK capital last week. The alleged rental arrears relate to office space near Piccadilly Circus in central London, according to the BBC.

The owner of Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters has also sued Twitter after it failed to make its latest monthly rent payment for January, amounting to $3.4m, according to documents filed on Friday with the superior court of California.

This comes after a report earlier this month stated that Twitter owed $136,260 in overdue rent on a separate office in San Francisco and was facing a lawsuit. Also in January, workers at a Twitter office in Singapore were evicted due to unpaid rent on the building.

Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
