Elon Musk gifted Amber Heard bugged Tesla, her mom preferred Johnny Depp to 'controlling' billionaire: Source
Elon Musk had gifted Amber Heard a Tesla which had been fitted with a bugging device, a family friend has revealed. The insider also shared that Heard's mother preferred Johnny Depp over the "controlling" billionaire, Daily Mail reports. The claims were made in a new legal declaration by Jennifer Howell who says she became close friends with Heard's younger sister Whitney Henriquez.
Howell was Henriquez's boss between the years 2014 and 2016. Howell had also got to know the sisters' late mother, Paige who spoke a lot about Heard's relationship with Musk after she had broken up with Johnny Depp. Howell provided a statement to Depp's lawyers which states, "Paige shared with me while I was visiting Whitney that Elon Musk had gifted a Tesla or multiple Teslas (not sure if it was one or more), but Amber found out that they were 'bugged'."
She also claimed that Paige had called Musk "controlling" and called Depp an "angel" or a "saint" and had hoped that Heard would get back with Depp. "Paige also told me the reason Johnny and Amber broke up was because Amber was violent and emotional and loved Johnny so much that she could not control it," Howell said.
"I was indeed taken aback because this conversation occurred after the divorce and when Hunter was only a few months old, and I was at Whitney's house. Whitney told me that Amber and Johnny were still in touch and that they were each other's true loves or something to that exact sentiment," the statement read.
"Whitney was still going through the emotions of having had a baby and all of those ups and downs, and I could not believe that Amber and Johnny's relationship was being discussed while Whitney was the one who needed to be the focal point and needed our support," the statement continued.
Henriquez has said that Howell's statements are "bizarre" and "complete fiction." It has also been reported that Heard and Henriquez are especially upset as the claims have been attributed to their mother who passed away in May.
Sources close to Musk have described Howell's statement as "pure fantasy land" and had pointed out how Heard had "only ever said glowing things" about him. While giving an interview over the weekend, Musk denied sleeping with Heard behind Depp's back. He told the New York Times that these cheating claims had been totally false. He had also taunted Depp about a text message that was read out during the London proceedings where Depp had told a friend jokingly that he wanted to cut off Musk's penis.
Musk laughed and said, "If Johnny wants a cage fight, just let me know." Musk, 49, has maintained that his romance with Heard only began after Heard and Depp had broken up in 2016 even though the concierge staff at Depp's former building claimed to see Musk coming in and out of the house well before Heard and Depp's marriage had ended.
The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor had recently taken to the witness stand to give evidence at London's High Court. An article from 2018 by The Sun had dubbed the actor as a "wife-beater" leading to him suing the publication for libel. He, in turn, denied ever being violent or raising a hand at Heard. Depp is suing NGN regarding a story that was put out in The Sun.
