SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and his estranged father Errol Musk engaged in a war of words. While 46-year-old Elon described his father to have a "carefully thought-out plan of evil", he was called "spoilt" in turn by Errol Musk. 

On Sunday, Errol told a leading daily that his son has always thrown tantrums and needs to grow up. Errol Musk, 72, recently had a baby with his 30-year-old girlfriend which shocked the Musk clan.

Elon, in an emotional interview with a leading American magazine, called his father "a terrible human".

Errol on Sunday shared that Elon behaves like a spoilt child and made such statements as a result of an emotional turmoil. 

"I think Elon was emotionally fragile when he attacked me," Errol said who further added that he will wait until Elon "comes to his senses".
