Amber Heard, her divorce with Johnny Depp & dating with billionaire Elon Musk has been a talk of the town; checkout what we have learned so far:
Elon Musk has become a talking point amid ex Amber Heard’s legal battle with Johnny Depp, as Depp previously accused Heard of cheating on him with the tech mogul before their divorce.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star also accused Heard and Musk of having a threesome with Cara Delevingne in his Los Angeles home while he was away in Australia filming a movie, a claim that the billionaire has denied.
Although the Tesla chief is on Heard’s witness list, his lawyer, Alex Spiro, confirmed. But that hasn’t kept the world’s richest man out of the bombshell civil proceeding. The actress and Musk, 50, were first spotted together in July 2016 at a hotel in Miami— just two months after her messy split from Depp.
ACLU Chief Operating Officer Terence Dougherty testified in a pre-recorded deposition played in court Thursday that Musk likely made a $500,000 donation in Heard’s name. Musk, who has a net worth of $219 billion, has been a longtime supporter of the charity while Heard’s acrimonious split with Depp, she promised to donate her entire $7 million divorce payout to two charities: the ACLU and the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital.
Musk emailed the ACLU’s CEO in 2017, after he started dating the "Justice League" actress, explaining that his girlfriend intended to satisfy her $3.5 million pledge over 10 years, Dougherty testified.
Johnny Depp has accused Heard of starting an affair with Musk just one month after they tied the knot. Staffers at the couple’s Los Angeles penthouse apartment said that Musk visited Heard "late at night" while Depp was filming in Australia in March 2015. "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,’’ the defamation complaint alleges.
The staffers said they regularly spotted the billionaire leaving the next morning. After Depp and Heard split in May 2016, Musk again became a frequent visitor to the penthouse late at night, the court papers say. Musk and Heard have both denied that the relationship began before her split from Depp.
Depp’s defamation trial against Heard is set to resume Monday in Fairfax County Circuit Court in Fairfax, Virginia — and the billionaire’s name is likely to resurface before the curtains close on the case.
