Amber Heard, Elon Musk: What to know about the Tesla chief’s relationship with Johnny Depp’s ex-wife – Up News Info

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

It appears that Elon Musk will not testify in the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard libel trial.

While Musk has been subpoenaed to turn over all communications he had with Heard about the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star, the tech boss won’t take a position on Heard’s behalf.

Musk’s attorney, Alex Spiro, told Fox News Digital on Wednesday that his client would not testify.

During his testimony, Depp claimed he believed the Tesla boss was seeing his ex-wife while Depp and Heard were married.

A source with knowledge of the trial also told the New York Post that James Franco, 44, will also be absent from the witness stand. Depp also claimed that Franco and Heard had an affair during Depp and Heard’s marriage.

Representatives for Franco did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s requests for comment.

So how does Musk factor in the Depp-Heard lawsuit?

Court documents claim Heard began a romantic relationship with Musk just a month after the ‘Aquaman’ actress, 35, married Depp, 58. According to the documents, Musk was there often “late at night” in Depp’s penthouse while Depp was away filming out of the country.

Musk, 50, also reportedly had access to the building’s parking lot at Heard’s request and that he would access the house via a penthouse elevator.

“Musk’s first appearance in Mr. Depp’s penthouse came shortly after Ms. Heard threw a bottle of vodka at Mr. Depp in Australia, when she learned that Mr. Depp wanted the couple to conclude a post-nuptial agreement regarding their marriage assets. Ms. Heard’s violently aimed projectile nearly severed Mr. Depp’s middle finger on his right hand and shattered the bones,” court documents allege.

‘Fill the space?’

In testimony from Creative Artists Agency (CAA) talent agent Christian Carino on Wednesday, Lady Gaga’s ex-fiancé explained on the stand that in August 2017, Heard expressed in a text message exchange that she lamented his breakup with Musk.

“Why would you be sad about the breakup if you weren’t in love with him? Carino asked Heard.

Carino had also warned that the actress shouldn’t date high-profile men if she didn’t want her relationships to be so public.

However, in leaked text messages between Heard and Carino in 2018, Heard had expressed a desire to reconcile her relationship with Depp, writing to Carino that she allegedly texted Depp “Happy Birthday” and told Carino, “God, he miss.”

Heard and Musk were first spotted together in July 2016 at a Miami Beach hotel about two months after they filed for divorce from Depp.

First sighting

Heard and Musk were first spotted together in July 2016 at a Miami Beach hotel about two months after they filed for divorce from Depp.

“She’s been friends with Elon for four years,” a source insisted to Page Six.

In August 2016, it was revealed that the future owner of Twitter had been trying to meet Heard for years.

In a recent statement to Vanity Fair regarding Musk’s alleged involvement with Heard, a representative for the top SpaceX boss vehemently denied engaging in a relationship with the ‘Justice League’ actress while she was with Depp.

“Elon and Amber only started seeing each other in May 2016, and even then it was infrequent. Their relationship only became romantic some time later,” the statement read.

Heard also denied the affair during testimony in Depp’s defamation case against a British newspaper in July 2020.

According to a People magazine report at the time, Heard and Musk actually became an item at a later date after her divorce from Depp in 2017, although the rumored romance was short-lived.

The two confirmed the relationship in 2017 when they were photographed together in Australia. They broke up to reconcile before calling it quits for good in 2018.

“Beautiful relationship” is coming to an end

“Elon and I had a great relationship, and we have a great friendship now, one that was based on our core values,” she explained to The Hollywood Reporter in a 2018 interview. “We just bonded over a lot of things that speak to who I am on the inside. I have so much respect for him.”

Some of the things they bonded over included “intellectual curiosity, ideas and conversation, a shared love for science.”

Tesla gift

Musk even gave her a black Tesla Model S worth around $80,000 as a gift. And it looks like Heard’s “friendship” statement rings true because she’s apparently still behind the wheel.

Heard was spotted in January running errands in the car.

And, despite his public feud with Depp, Heard continued to work.

Heard stars in the Conor Allyn period drama thriller “In the Fire,” which she was seen filming in Guatemala just last month. Set in the 19th century and taking on the weirdness of a supernatural thriller, the story centers around a family living on a Colombian farm in the 1890s.

Contrary to some rumors that Heard nearly quit her role as Mera in the DC Extended Universe “Aquaman” franchise, Heard is still set to appear in its sequel, “The Lost Kingdom,” starring Jason Momoa.
