Yeah I imagine you're right. I got thrown off by this which appears to be new specific allegations:

Musk called Unsworth a “single white guy from England who’s been traveling to or living in Thailand for 30 to 40 years”, alleging that he had moved to Chiang Rai “for a child bride who was about 12 years old at the time”

Maybe we will find it all out in a full out court drama!

Unsworth, who said he was considering legal action after the original insults on Twitter, is now moving forward with a lawsuit, his lawyer said in an email to the Guardian on Tuesday: “Elon Musk’s campaign of publishing vile and false accusations against Mr Unsworth is inexcusable. Musk hopes to be sued and he deserves to be sued. He will be.”

Except the Thai woman he's married to is like 40, I've read. Musk seems to be exceptionally full of shit here, he has no evidence backing up any of these allegations, and I'm not even sure why he's doing it. I guess he really wanted to be the one to save those kids and is just super jealous? It's weird, it's almost like he's trying to convince everyone he's off his rocker. Of all the people to attack, you don't go after a worldwide hero at the peak of his fame... just terrible PR. It's seriously like he's trying to destroy his image deliberately almost. Maybe he does have some fantastic evidence, but his target and timing is very odd, and he hasn't come forward with any evidence yet. I dunno.
