Elon Musk breaks silence on Johnny Depp and Amber Heard as defamation trial nears end

LOS ANGELES – Elon Musk, a billionaire, finally said something about his ex-girlfriend Amber Heard and her ex-husband Johnny Depp. In a tweet, he wished both actors well.

The founder of Tesla and SpaceX, who briefly dated Heard, wrote last Friday, May 27: “I hope both of them will move on. At their best, each of them is amazing.”

His comments came just hours after their lawyers’ closing arguments in their defamation trial, which had made headlines and led to memes on social media. The jury has gone to think about what to do and will be back in court on Tuesday (May 31).

Musk, who is 50 years old, replied to a tweet from research scientist and podcaster Lex Fridman, who had written: “From the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial, I learned: 1. Being famous is a hell of a drug (for some). 2. There are huge differences in how skilled psychiatrists and lawyers are. 3. It is possible for people to lie to millions of people. 4. Love isn’t always neat. 5. A big glass of wine.”

Depp, who is 58 years old, is suing Heard, who is 36, for US$50 million (S$68 million). He says that she slandered him in an opinion piece she wrote for The Washington Post. She said that she “became a public figure representing domestic abuse,” but she didn’t name Depp.

Heard sued Depp back and asked for $100 million. Both people, who were married from 2015 to 2017, say that the other hurt them while they were married.

In his defamation suit, Depp had said that Heard had an affair with Musk no later than one month after they got married.

But in 2019, a spokesman for the billionaire told the entertainment website E! News: “Elon and Amber didn’t start dating until May 2016, and even then, they didn’t see each other very often. It wasn’t until a while later that they started to date.”

Musk and Heard were first linked to each other in July 2016, and they confirmed their relationship on Instagram in April 2017. They broke up a few months later, in August.
