Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of Tesla Inc., has raised over $7.1 billion from friends and investors to help acquire Twitter.

The details are contained in a filing on the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

Last month, Musk agreed to buy Twitter Inc. for $44 billion in a deal that will ensure investors receive $54.20 for each Twitter share they own.

According to the SEC filing, Prince al-Waleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia, who agreed to retain his nearly $1.9 billion stakes, is the biggest contribution.

Binance is the second-highest investor, with a $500 million in equity.

The investors and their commitments are as follows; A.M. Management & Consulting, ($25,000,000), AH Capital Management, L.L.C.
