Amber Heard said in text messages read in her defamation lawsuit Wednesday that she was not in love with Elon Musk.
Johnny Depp is suing Heard, alleging that his ex-wife ruined his career with domestic violence claims.
Amber Heard never really loved her ex-boyfriend Elon Musk, her former talent agent said in testimony in a defamation case against Johnny Depp.
Depp is suing his ex-wife Heard for $50 million, alleging she ruined his reputation and career by saying in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed that she had been a victim of domestic violence.
Amber Heard has denied the allegations, saying that Depp physically abused her on several occasions before and during their marriage.
Troubles in the marriage became public in May 2016, when Heard appeared in court with a bruised face to request a restraining order against Depp.
By the time the couple’s divorce was finalized in January 2017, there were already rumors of Heard moving on with Musk, the billionaire CEO of Tesla and SpaceX.
On Wednesday, Depp and Heard’s former talent agent Christian Carino testified in the defamation lawsuit via pre-recorded deposition.
Carino was shown exchanging text-messages with Heard, which became news following her breakup with Musk in August 2017.
Carino affirmed that Heard “quickly continued on” from Depp to date Musk.
“You weren’t in love with her and you told me a thousand times that you were just filling the void,” Carino told Heard when she complained about making the breakup news.
Heard replied, “I know, but I wanted time to grieve and heal on my own.”
Carino answered by saying, “You can pull off it by not dating super-celebrities.”
Musk is somewhat opaque about when Heard started dating. The first report is from July 2016.
Depp’s lawful group has recommended that he went behind Depp’s back with Musk, and representatives of the structure where Depp and Heard once shared a condo have said that the extremely rich person undermined Heard on a few events.
Musk, who bought Twitter this week, has been listed as a possible witness for Heard, but it is unclear whether he will be called to testify in the case.
