Billionaire Elon Musk’s Twitter has faced at least six lawsuits by various companies for failing to pay bills, CNBC reports.
These nonpayment lawsuits have piled up since December, according to the legal and public records database Planite. Four of these cases have been filed in February, and two have been filed this week.
These latest come from corporate events planning company Blueprint Studios, which allegedly invoiced Twitter around $340,000, including tax, for canceled events, and AI software company Writer, Inc., which alleges Twitter was charged for subscription fees. owes over $220,000.
Earlier this month, merger and acquisition firm Innisfree filed a lawsuit against Twitter for allegedly not paying it nearly $2 million.
Analysis Group, which provided litigation-related counsel to Twitter and its attorneys prior to the Musk deal, filed its lawsuit 2 days ago for allegedly not paying more than $2 million.
In December, Twitter was hit by lawsuits from Columbia REIT, the company’s landlord in San Francisco, and Private Jet Services Group, which provides private jets, according to Plainsight.
This is the latest news of apparent penny-pinching since Musk’s $44 billion deal for the social platform struck in October last year.
This week, Twitter employees said they couldn’t access their internal Slack channels. While Twitter was not paying Slack’s bills, the service was apparently shut down internally by Twitter, not Slack.
