The “Drive Angry” actress’s former beau allegedly threatened Warner Bros. Studios to keep her role as Mera in the DC franchise. The billionaire’s alleged romantic gesture occurred amid the TV personality’s viral defamation lawsuit with her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.
Elon Musk Used His Power To Defend Amber Heard’s Position In The ‘Aquaman’
According to a new bombshell report, new details about the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard’s defamation trial surfaced online after the “Pirates of The Caribbean” actor’s fans paid the court to release documents from his ex-wife’s therapist, Dr. Dawn Hughes. The notes, written on a legal pad, made waves during the former couple’s 2022 trial that saw many calling for Heard’s cancellation.
Before the high-profile trial ended in Depp’s favor, Heard alleged she had begun suffering the consequences of the defamation case.
According to the therapist’s scribblings, Heard claimed, “Jason said he wanted me fired. Jason drunk — late on set. Dressing like Johnny. Has all the rings, too.”
The shocking report is a back-and-forth between claims made in the legal documents and responses from DC and other sources on the set.
A DC representative refuted Amber’s allegations, noting the Hawaiian hunk did nothing wrong.
The spokesperson said, “Jason Momoa conducted himself in a professional manner at all times on the set of ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.’” A source from the movie’s set shared similar statements, explaining that the “Fast X” actor enjoyed having a beer but never showed up to work intoxicated.
Additionally, an insider alleged that Momoa and Heard had no bad blood as they were frequently seen joking together. “And he isn’t dressing like Johnny Depp. He has always dressed in that bohemian style,” the informant fired back. Aside from the Hollywood heartthrob, the legal notes pointed fingers at the film’s director, James Wan.
Heard implied she felt unsupported by Wan and was treated like a social outcast because of the defamation lawsuit. “He raised his voice @ me — ‘I can’t even post about Aquaman’ — made it like it was my fault – I said ‘I’m sorry,’” the therapist’s notes revealed about the director.
Adding, “Nobody could take selfies with me on set, given blackout.”
Once again, the DC spokesperson disagreed with the allegations. The rep stressed that Wan was well-known for treating others with “utmost respect and fostering a positive, collaborative environment on set — the ‘Aquaman’ films were no exception.”
Nonetheless, sources insisted Heard nearly lost her role over her lack of chemistry with Momoa.
The former head of DC Films, Walter Hamada, also echoed similar sentiments about the actress’s poor chemistry with her co-star in the defamation trial. Despite their issues with Heard, the studio backed down from giving the 37-year-old the boot.
A source revealed the Tesla CEO defended the TV personality behind the scenes by having one of his litigators send a “scorched-earth letter to Warner Bros. threatening to burn the house down” if Heard did not return for “Aquaman 2.”
The Billionaire’s Father Claimed Johnny Depp Blamed Musk For His Failed Marriage
Weeks before the Space X founder’s romantic gesture to Heard was revealed, his father Errol Musk opened up about his son’s short-lived relationship with the “Drive Angry” actress. During a candid interview, the patriarch expressed love for the “Never Back Down” actress, noting she was the perfect match for his son.
“I thought Amber Heard was perfect for him. Elon was in love with Amber for a long while before she got divorced from Johnny Depp,” Errol explained, seemingly hinting at the extramarital allegations. Fans suspected the former couple’s relationship started while the actress was still legally married.
Elon and Heard were a brief item between 2017 and 2018, while the “Drop Dead Sexy” actress was knee-deep in her divorce proceedings with Depp.
“[Depp] blames Elon for the breakdown of his marriage and is on the cusp of suing him for that still,” the tech mogul’s father claimed.
