Elon Musk requested a bathroom be built next to his office at Twitter’s headquarters, a lawsuit says.
That’s allegedly because he didn’t want to have to wake up his security team in the middle of the night.
Musk’s right-hand man suggested they hire an unlicensed plumber so they didn’t have to get a permit.
Elon Musk wanted to have a bathroom built next to his office in Twitter’s headquarters so he didn’t have to wake up his bodyguards in the middle of the night to go pee, a new lawsuit claims.
Six former Twitter employees filed the suit against Musk and X. Corp, Twitter’s holding company, in the District Court of Delaware on Tuesday.
It accuses the defendants of violating 14 counts including fraud, breach of contract, and labor rights laws. But it’s also full of details about what’s been going on inside the social media company under the billionaire’s leadership.
A Twitter engineer told the BBC in March that at least two bodyguards follow Musk around its San Francisco headquarters, including to the restroom.
The lawsuit says that Steve Davis, the Boring Company CEO, told Joseph Killian – a plaintiff who worked at Twitter for 12 years and oversaw office design – to start work on a new restroom closer to Musk’s office.
Musk wanted the facilities next to his own office so he “didn’t have to wake his security team and cross half the floor to use the bathroom in the middle of the night,” the suit alleges.
Last month, the billionaire told the BBC that he sometimes sleeps on a couch in the library at Twitter’s headquarters. Musk also told CNBC on Tuesday that he sleeps for about six hours a night.
Killian told Davis that he would start getting the permits for Musk’s restroom, but the suit paraphrases him responding: “We don’t do that, we don’t have to follow those rules.”
Allegedly, he instead suggested Killian hire an unlicensed plumber to build the toilet, since others wouldn’t want to jeopardize their license by working on a project without a permit.
Insider reached out to Twitter for comment. It responded with its standard poop-emoji auto reply.
