As Hollywood actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s trial came to an end and jurors began deliberating, the ‘Aquaman’ actress’ ex-boyfriend and CEO of SpaceX & Tesla, Elon Musk, took to Twitter to comment on the same. Calling the two Hollywood stars ‘incredible’, he wished for the two to ‘move on’ in life and do better.
The billionaire commented on a post that highlighted major ‘takeaways’ from Amber-Johnny’s trial and shared his views. His comment read, “I hope they both move on. At their best, they are each incredible (sic).”
As per reports, Amber and Elon dated each other for a brief period after her split with the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star.
Some reports suggest that they dated each other for a year before parting ways in 2017. However, Johnny’s lawyers had alleged during the trial that Amber started dating Musk shortly after her separation with her husband in 2015.
In the trial, Johnny’s lawyers had also submitted a footage of Amber’s ‘late night meetings’ with Musk. The billionaire refused to testify and kept his distance during the courtroom drama.
Addressing the high-profile case, Elon’s lawyer Alex Spiro told NBC that his client ‘will not be testifying’ in the defamation trial.
On the sets of the 2009 film ‘The Rum Diary’, Amber and Johnny first saw each other and became friends. They began to date and fell madly for each other within a few years.
In 2015, the two tied the knot and took wedding vows. Heard filed for divorce within one year of their marriage. The finalization was in 2017.
Johnny brought a defamation suit against his ex-wife, who had accused him of being physically abusive and a heroin addict. Since Amber wrote an opinion piece in The Washington Post about domestic violence, Johnny’s lawyer took the matter to the court and alleged that Amber’s statements have damaged Johnny’s career and reputation.
