It was the ticket money couldn’t buy – the exclusive Met Gala after party might have hosted the likes of Anna Wintour, Taylor Swift and all of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, but tech mogul Elon Musk wasn’t cool enough to get in.
According to Page Six the man who is dubbed the ‘Real-life Tony Stark’ – worth an estimated $13 billion – was snubbed from the Top of the Standard party because he wasn’t on the list.
The CEO of Tesla – American automotive and energy storage company that designs, manufactures, and sells electric cars – and his model mother, Maye 68 were left standing on the wrong side of the velvet rope despite other party goers telling the people with the clip board they were making a big mistake.
“Everyone was shouting and trying to help, saying, ‘He’s Elon Musk!’ And they were just like, ‘We don’t care, he’s not on the list,’” a source told Page Six.
Ironically Apple, the company sponsoring the party, might be in the market to aquire Musk’s Tesla Motors, reports Page Six.
No word out of Musk’s camp about how his after party rejection went down.
