The SEC report states that Musk notified the talent and media company of his resignation on March 12, and it was not due to any type of dispute. “In connection therewith, the board of directors approved reducing its size from eight to seven members subject to and effective upon the effectiveness of Mr. Musk’s resignation. Mr. Musk’s resignation was not the result of any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to its operations, policies or practices,” the report reads.

The company is led by CEO Ari Emanuel and executive chairman Patrick Whitesell, representing sports entities such as the NHL and NFL as well as owning UFC and the Miss Universe pageant.
Musk is the founder, CEO and chief engineer at SpaceX, as well as the CEO of Tesla.
