With more trouble for the billionaire, analysts wonder if Musk’s team will be able to follow through paying severance to the thousands of people laid off from Twitter after Musk’s takeover.

Items listed by the Musk company include industrial-grade kitchen equipment, office supplies such as a 41-inch high Twitter bird statue, a sculpture planter, chairs, projectors, televisions, desks and espresso machines.
