According to regulatory filings, the billionaire sold 4.5 million shares this week, which equate to three percent of his total holdings in Tesla.

Musk's trust sold nearly 3.6 million shares in Tesla, worth around 4 billion U.S. dollars in a bid to settle tax obligations.

The sale was initiated under a pre-arranged trading plan set up in September. But it's not yet clear whether it related to Musk's Twitter poll.
