Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s ongoing legal battle has appeared to get uglier and uglier with each new accusation. When filing a defamation suit against Heard last March in 2019, Depp added that Heard also had an affair with tech mogul Elon Musk while the pair was still married. Though Heard and Musk did have a brief relationship following the end of her and Depp’s marriage, it had not previously been speculated that they had been romantically involved while she was still with Depp.
The lawsuit file by Depp against Heard stated, “Unbeknownst to Mr. Depp, no later than one month after his marriage to Ms. Heard, she was spending time in a new relationship with Tesla and Space X founder, Elon Musk. Only one calendar month after Mr. Depp and Ms. Heard were married — while Mr. Depp was out of the country, filming in March 2015 — Eastern Columbia Building personnel testified that Ms. Heard received Musk ‘late at night’ at Mr. Depp’s penthouse.”
“Specifically, Ms. Heard asked staff at the Eastern Columbia Building to give her ‘friend Elon’ access to the building’s parking garage and the penthouse elevator ‘late at night,’ and they testified that they did so,” the statement continued. “Building staff would then see Ms. Heard’s ‘friend Elon’ leaving the building the next morning… Musk’s first appearance in Mr. Depp’s penthouse occurred shortly after Ms. Heard threw a vodka bottle at Mr. Depp in Australia, when she learned that Mr. Depp wanted the couple to enter into a post-nuptial agreement concerning assets in their marriage.”
Heard and Musk have both denied the allegations saying that they did not begin seeing each other until May pf 2016, which was after the end of Depp and Heard’s marriage. A rep for Musk also added that, “even then it was infrequent…and didn’t become romantic until some time later.”
However, new surveillance footage obtained by “The Daily Mail” may give some weight to Depp’s claims. The footage shows Heard and Musk embracing each other in a very comfortable and familiar way while exiting in an elevator.
While the allegations may very well be true, Musk has since moved on with singer Grimes and is expecting a child with her. The singer confirmed her pregnancy on Instagram back in February writing, “Fake or real? Haha. Wow I’m starting to feel bad haha… how do y’all cope with working and having a baby. I’m sorry I haven’t been promoting my album properly or on social media more. This whole thing has been a bit of an ordeal. Had some complications early on, a decent second trimester but starting to hurt everywhere at 25 wksz.”
