"That Cretin Never Advised Me On Anything Whatsoever": Musk Responds...

Update (2230ET): Musk has replied news that he's been subpoenaed in the US Virgin Islands lawsuit against JPMorgan over their relationship with Epstein.

"This is idiotic on so many levels," said Musk, adding "That cretin never advised me on anything whatsoever."

"The notion that I would need or listen to financial advice from a dumb crook is absurd."

Lastly, Musk claims that JPMorgan "let Tesla down ten years ago, despite having Tesla's global commercial banking business, which I then withdrew. I have never forgiven them."

Elon Musk was issued a subpoena by the US Virgin Islands as part of its lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase over the bank's alleged facilitation of Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking ring, a court filing revealed Monday.

According to the filing, the Virgin Islands has attempted to serve Musk since late April, because Epstein "may have referred or attempted to refer" Musk as a client to JPMorgan.

The USVI hired an investigative firm to try to locate an address from Musk, and also contacted one of the CEO's lawyers, who in the past has waived the requirement of him being personally served with legal documents in past federal cases, according to the filing in U.S. District Court in Manhattan. -CNBC

"The Government contacted Mr. Musk's counsel via email to ask if he would be authorized to accept service on Mr. Musk's behalf in this matter but did not receive a response confirming or denying his authority," reads the filing.

JPMorgan is accused of servicing approximately 55 Epstein accounts between 1998 and 2013, years after his 2006 arrest for soliciting minors in Florida.
