Johnny Depp accused Amber Heard of cheating on him with Elon Musk just a month into their marriage. The accusation is the latest in their messy divorce.
The actor accused Heard of cheating on him with the Tesla founder in March 2015. This was just a month after they got married as part of a $50 million defamation lawsuit following the article she wrote in The Washington Post about being a survivor of domestic abuse.
The lawsuit said, ”Unbeknownst to Mr. Depp, no later than one month after his marriage to Ms. Heard, she was spending time in a new relationship with Tesla and Space X founder, Elon Musk. Only one calendar month after Mr. Depp and Ms. Heard were married–while Mr. Depp was out of the country, filming in March 2015–Eastern Columbia Building personnel testified that Ms. Heard received Musk ‘late at night’ at Mr. Depp’s penthouse.”
The lawsuit added, ”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,’ and they testified that they did so. Building staff would then see Ms. Heard’s ‘friend Elon’ leaving the building the next morning.”
Musk’s reps have said that his relationship with Heard did not start until after her marriage with Depp was fully over, telling E!, ”Elon and Amber didn’t start seeing each other until May 2016, and even then it was infrequent. Their relationship didn’t become romantic until some time later.”
The lawsuit, however, states, ”Musk’s first appearance in Mr. Depp’s penthouse occurred shortly after Ms. Heard threw a vodka bottle at Mr. Depp in Australia, when she learned that Mr. Depp wanted the couple to enter into a post-nuptial agreement concerning assets in their marriage. Ms. Heard’s violently aimed projectile virtually severed Mr. Depp’s middle finger on his right hand and shattered the bones. Mr. Depp’s marriage to Ms. Heard came to an end in May 2016.”
Heard’s lawyers responded to the lawsuit saying, ”This frivolous action is just the latest of Johnny Depp’s repeated efforts to silence Amber Heard. She will not be silenced. Mr. Depp’s actions prove he is unable to accept the truth of his ongoing abusive behavior. But while he appears hell-bent on achieving self-destruction, we will prevail in defeating this groundless lawsuit and ending the continued vile harassment of my client by Mr. Depp and his legal team.”
Dep’s team fired back, “‘They want to silence Amber Heard’ doesn’t sound like denial by Ms. Heard of Mr. Depp’s 40-page, evidence-packed complaint. We hardly intend to silence Ms. Heard–to the contrary, we intend to subpoena and compel evidence from her, her three hoax-assisting friends, and Elon Musk. We look forward to holding the overwhelming video, photographic and eyewitness evidence we finally possess up against Amber Heard’s (so far silent) attempts to explain the inexplicable.”
Neither Depp nor Heard has directly addressed this situation.
