Egypt Extends Invite To Elon Musk After He Tweets About The Great Pyramids Being Built By Aliens

The country of Egypt has extended a travel invite to Elon Musk to come visit the county and their iconic Great Pyramids, just after he tweeted some conspiracy theories about the landmarks.

Over the weekend, the tech CEO hypothesized that the three ancient wonders of the world were actually built by aliens, and suggested that one of the pharaohs was one himself.

“Aliens built the pyramids obv,” he wrote. “Ramses II was [cool face emoji].”

Elon went on, trying to prove the theory as fact: “The Great Pyramid was the tallest structure made by humans for 3,800 years. Three thousand, eight hundred years…This BBC article provides a sensible summary for how it was done.”

After seeing his posts, Egypt’s Minister of International Co-operation, Rania al-Mashat, invited him to come visit the landmarks and see the actual tombs of the people who built them, hinting that they weren’t aliens.

Later on, famed archaeologist Zahi Hawass filmed a short video about Elon’s theories and dismissed the notion of the Pyramids being built by aliens.

“[The] pyramids [were] built by Egyptians and I will tell you quickly the evidence,” he says, adding that he has “found the tombs of the pyramids builders that tell everyone that the builders of the pyramids are Egyptians and they were not slaves…[it was] a national project of the whole nation.”

Did Amber Heard Think Elon Musk Gave Her a Bugged Tesla?

Amber Heard was apparently worried that Elon Musk gifted her a bugged Tesla.

Jennifer Howell, a family friend of the Heard family, revealed the details in the court declaration for Johnny Depp‘s recent trial and said she had learned this info from Amber‘s mom Paige.

Paige shared with me while I was visiting [Amber’s sister] Whitney that Elon Musk had gifted a Tesla or multiple Teslas (not sure if it was one or more), but Amber found out that they were ‘bugged,’” Jennifer said in court documents obtained by the Daily Mail.

Paige also told me the reason Johnny and Amber broke up was because Amber was violent and emotional and loved Johnny so much that she could not control it,” Jennifer allegedly continued.

She also claimed that Amber‘s mom described Elon as “controlling.”

Meanwhile, Amber‘s sister is slamming Jennifer‘s statements as “bizarre” and a “complete fiction.”

Sources close to Elon reportedly called these statements “pure fantasy land.”

Amber‘s private conversation with Elon Musk was also recently revealed in a bombshell moment in court. Elon and Amber were in a relationship after her relationship with Johnny.

Tesla Billionaire Elon Musk Thinks Another Stimulus Package Is 'Not in the Best Interests of the People'

Elon Musk has an opinion about how to help the world amid the pandemic.

The 49-year-old Tesla CEO, who is estimated to be worth nearly $70 billion, weighed in on a proposed additional stimulus package from the government on Friday (July 24).

“Another government stimulus package is not in the best interests of the people imo,” he wrote.

“As a reminder, I’m in *favor* of universal basic income. Goal of government should be to maximize the happiness of the people. Giving each person money allows them to decide what meets their needs, rather than the blunt tool of legislation, which creates self-serving special interests,” he continued.

“These are jammed to gills with special interests earmarks. If we do a stimulus at all, it should just be direct payments to consumers.”

Elon recently made headlines after private conversations between him and Amber Heard were revealed in court.

Amber Heard's Private Conversations with Elon Musk & James Franco Revealed

In court today (July 21), Amber Heard took the witness stand to speak during Johnny Depp‘s trial against a UK tabloid for calling him a “wife beater.” Johnny has continually denied these allegations, while Amber has alleged he abused her during their marriage.

At one point during her testimony, a private text message conversation between Elon Musk and Amber was read aloud to the courtroom. Elon and Amber previously dated after her relationship with Johnny ended, and he has been brought up during this trial before.

At one point, Elon sent her a text message saying he would “arrange 24/7 security for you.”

“The offer would stand, even if you never wanted to see me again… anyway, sorry for being an idiot. The radio silence hurts a lot. It only matters because I really like you,” the text continued.

Another moment during the questioning happened when CCTV footage was played from May 22, 2016 at around 11pm, when Amber left the penthouse she shared with Johnny Depp to bring James Franco upstairs. James and Amber co-starred in The Adderall Diaries.

“Are you trying to avoid being seen by the camera there?” Amber was asked by a lawyer about the footage.

Amber responded, “We were talking. He was saying to me ‘oh my god, what happened to you?’ He saw my face… when I let him in. He saw my face and he said ‘what the f***?’”

She was then asked, “That’s not secretive talking on that camera?” to which she responded, “Yes, it’s discreet.”

Find out what word Johnny says Amber used to describe James Franco.

Amber Heard 'Visited Regularly' by Elon Musk Late at Night at Johnny Depp’s Home, According to Concierge

Elon Musk regularly visited Amber Heard at her ex Johnny Depp‘s Los Angeles penthouse while they were still together, a concierge claimed via written witness statement in court on Friday (July 17).

Alejandro Romero, a concierge at the Eastern Columbia Building, made the statement regarding the 34-year-old actress and the 49-year-old Tesla exec during Johnny‘s ongoing libel trial against The Sun.

“From March 2015 onwards, Ms Heard was visited regularly late at night, at around 11pm to midnight, by Mr Elon Musk. For his initial visits, I would receive a call from Ms Heard who would tell me to give Mr Musk access to the garage for the building and then send him up to the penthouse. After he had made a few visits, Ms Heard provided Mr Musk with his own garage remote and a fob to Mr Depp’s penthouse. I believe he visited Ms Heard a few times a week and he would always visit when Mr Depp was not at home,” he said in a written statement.

The statement was written in support of Johnny‘s libel action against News Group Newspapers for describing him as a “wife beater,” which he denies.

The concierge also noted that he “did not notice any bruises, cuts, swelling, red marks or any other injuries of any kind to Ms Heard’s face” when he saw her on May 25, 2016, which is when she alleged that Johnny threw a phone at her and smashed objects in the penthouse, which he denies.

He said he was asked by Amber to check the apartment “to check that no-one was there and that it was safe.”

“During my search, I did not see another person or anything to cause concern, at any point” he added.

Elon Musk, Joe Biden & Many More Hacked in Massive Twitter Security Breach

Joe Biden and Elon Musk are among some of the many Twitter accounts that were hacked on Wednesday afternoon (July 15).

Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Kanye West, and the official accounts for Apple, Uber and Bitcoin.org were hacked to promote a Bitcoin scam, Buzzfeed News confirmed.

Here’s more about the scam: “Since at least the start of 2018, scammers have created fake accounts mimicking Musk, President Donald Trump, and other celebrities to lure in unsuspecting individuals to send bitcoin or other forms of cryptocurrency with the promise that they’d have their money doubled or tripled in return.”

A rep for Twitter told the organization that the issue is being “looked into.”

Wiz Khalifa, Jeff Bezos and Mike Bloomberg were also affected, among others.

This time, the unknown hacker gained access to the stars’ real accounts, as opposed to creating fake accounts.

Unfortunately, it seems some already fell for the scam: “The bitcoin wallet address associated with the scam showed transactions on Wednesday afternoon suggesting more than $60,000 worth of the cryptocurrency had been deposited in the wallet. It’s unclear if that money was from actual unsuspecting individuals or from the scammer themselves,” Buzzfeed adds.

Here’s what’s going on with Kanye‘s presidential run.
