Musk denies wanting to be Apple’s CEO and criticises the company’s monopolisation

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Musk allegedly wanted Apple to acquire Tesla. In a phone call with Apple CEO Tim Cook, he laid down the groundrules as he wanted to be the CEO of the iPhone maker.

(RTTNews) – A recently published book by Wall Street Journal reporter Tim Higgins claimed Elon Musk wanted to become the CEO of Apple Inc (AAPL) back in 2016. However, Musk has denied that claim on Twitter on Friday.

According to Higgins’ book, Power Play: Tesla, Elon Musk and the Bet of the Century, “According to a former aide who heard (Musk’s) retelling of the exchange,” Cook agreed to buy Tesla but when Musk said that he wanted to be the chief of Apple, Cook said “F**k you” and disconnected.

Musk took to Twitter to denounce the second part of the story. “Cook & I have never spoken or written to each other ever.

“There was a point where I requested to meet with Cook to talk about Apple buying Tesla. There were no conditions of acquisition proposed whatsoever. He refused to meet. Tesla was worth about 6% of today’s value,” wrote Musk in his tweet.
