This is where things started to sour: While Thai rescuers praised Musk ’s technology, some said it wasn’t “practical” for their plans.

Accusation directed on Twitter at Vern Unsworth, who called Tesla CEO’s offer of ‘mini-sub’ to help rescuers a ‘PR stunt’.

Vernon Unsworth, who helped rescue a Thai football team and their coach from a cave in July last year, is suing the Tesla founder, who suggested he was a "child rapist" and accused him of having a 12-year-old bride.

Court documents released online say Mr Unsworth will have to spend his life "with the asterisk of paedophilia attached to his name" because of the accusations levelled against him online by Musk, who called him "pedo guy" in a tweet.

Mr Unsworth claims the billionaire only made the accusations because he was insulted when the cave diver said Musk's child submarine would not work and was a PR stunt.

"Unsworth accepted Musk's challenge in order to redress the false attacks on his reputation and in doing so, has developed a factual record that demands that his case against Musk be resolved by a jury."

Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk , a man seemingly determined to court negative press at every possible turn, lashed out via Twitter at a rescue diver who publicly Musk struck back on Twitter, suggesting that Unsworth, a British national living in a country infamous for sex tourism, is a pedophile.

Mr Unsworth is seeking $75,000 (£61,000) in compensation as well as an unspecified amount in punitive damages, according to Buzzfeed.

The bizarre battle between the pair has been bubbling on for several months, with Musk calling himself a "f****** idiot" after sending a Buzzfeed reporter "off the record" comments that suggested Mr Unsworth should be investigated over his choice of holiday destination in Thailand, which Musk said "had a reputation for child prostitution".

Musk has previously admitted under oath that his accusations were false, but said that he was relying on an investigation by James Howard-Higgins, who he now describes as a "con man".

Mr Howard-Higgins has said he never made an allegation that Mr Unsworth was a paedophile and said he did not know how anyone could come to that conclusion.

Elon Musk posing in front of a body of water:                   SpaceX and      Tesla CEO      Elon      Musk is famously productive - and he expects the same      levels of enthusiasm from his employees.         An email sent to Tesla employees last year, as well as other    reports, provide a window on the rules he likes people to observe    in the workplace.               These include bans on meetings with lots of people and      esoteric jargon, as well as a zero tolerance policy on leaking      to the press.              Visit      Business Insider's homepage for more stories.          Elon Musk gets a lot done.      The 47-year-old entrepreneur and CEO is     revolutionizing the spaceflight industry with SpaceX,    transforming the world of the     electric car at Tesla, and pushing neuroscience and    transportation forward at     Neuralink and the Boring Company.      The billionaire expects similar standards from his employees, and    an email Musk sent to Tesla employees last year, as well as other    reports, provide a window on the rules he likes his people to    observe in the workplace.       It's clear that Musk is clearly not a fan of meetings,    bureaucracy, hierarchy, or any system that impedes immediate    communication. He prefers people apply common sense to the task    at hand. And if employees don't meet his expectations, he can be    ruthless.       Scroll on for some of the strict rules Musk sets for his    employees.

In the documents, Mr Unsworth, 64, says he met his long-term girlfriend Woranan Ratrawiphukkun, known as Tik, in a coffee shop in London in 2011, when she was 32.

He says Musk's attempts to get the private investigator to pass on information about his "nefarious behaviour" were unsuccessful, because "no such behaviour exists".

Despite receiving reports that Mr Unsworth had met his partner when she was 18 or 19 years old and married her some years later, Musk told a news reporter that the cave rescuer was a child rapist who married a 12-year-old.

Musk later said of the email to the reporter: "I'm a f****** idiot", and also said he didn't expect the reporter to publish his email, calling it "one of the dumbest things I have ever done".

In May, a federal judge in Los Angeles rejected the billionaire's attempt to dismiss a defamation lawsuit filed by Mr Unsworth and set a trial date of 22 October.

Mr Unsworth was part of the team of international divers who successfully rescued all 12 youngsters and their football coach when they became trapped for two weeks by rising waters in a Thai cave complex.
