During an interview for Tesla's annual shareholder meeting, Elon Musk, the CEO of the electric automaker, revealed that he has experienced several incidents targeting his life in the past seven months. 

Elon Musk Highlights Recent Violent Threats Against Him

These incidents appear to have no clear motive other than his high profile in both social and business circles. The response came about due to an investor's question about how the billionaire is managing his well-being given his high-profile status, Daily Express US via MSN reported.

An anonymous shareholder asked about Elon Musk's efforts to maintain his health and safety. In response, Musk humorously suggested that he should consider incorporating exercise into his routine to reduce the risk of any potential harm.

"It is getting a little crazy these days. You know, like, to first approximation, the probability that a homicidal maniac will try to kill you is proportional to how many homicidal maniacs hear your name,"  Musk said.

Musk then disclosed that Tesla had experienced two individuals with violent intentions in the past seven months who had targeted him and others. This highlights that the safety concerns extend beyond just himself.

Elon Musk Changes Approach to Fans, Citing Safety Concerns

Musk mentioned that he has become more distant due to certain circumstances and no longer signs things for fans who approach him in public.

According to the New York Post, Musk went on to draw a comparison between himself and Lennon, the iconic musician tragically murdered outside the Dakota Apartments in Manhattan in 1980 by a devoted Beatles fan shortly after Lennon had autographed an album for him.

"I will endeavor to stay alive," Musk stated.

Additionally, during the meeting, there was a significant majority of Tesla shareholders who voted in favor of approving Musk's contentious $56 billion pay package. This decision allows the mogul to maintain his attention on his primary source of wealth.

The company is working to overturn Delaware Chancery Court Judge Kathaleen McCormick's decision from January, where she referred to the compensation plan as an "unfathomable sum."
