The Chief Executive Officer of Tesla, Elon Musk, Friday shocked his followers on Twitter with the public declaration of his intention to dispose of his assets.
The billionaire, who is also the CEO of Space X, wrote on the microblogging platform that he would sell off almost all his physical possessions.
Musk, however, added that his pregnant girlfriend, Claire Boucher, was not happy about his decision.
He said: “I am selling almost all physical possessions. Will own no house.”
Musk is also putting up for sale his Gene Wilder’s old house.
But he does not want the property to be torn down by the buyer.
He added: “Just one stipulation on sale: I own Gene Wilder’s old house. It cannot be torn down or lose any its soul.”
Musk also said Tesla stock price was too high. Following the
tweetstorm, Tesla shares plunged as much as 13% as of noon Friday in New York trading. However, the stock is still up about 65% for the year.
