Elon Musk says affair with Amber Heard started AFTER her separation: 'Depp wants to believe he got cucked'
Elon Musk has finally broken his silence over the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard fiasco that has also seen him getting involved. The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star had earlier accused the Tesla CEO of having an affair with his ex-wife Amber Heard.
However, when a user on Musk's Twitter post shared an article on the cheating allegations, requoting it as, “er, hi”, the CEO of SpaceX could not be able to resist himself. “This is false. JD’s (Johnny Depp) team put out ‘video evidence’, but conveniently excluded the date stamp, as it was well after JD & AH had separated,” he responded.
His response did not convince people as another one commented, “The building staff testified under oath they let you in the building while Johnny was filming in Australia. Amber asked them to get you a fob so you had the freedom to come and go. Security saw you multiple times while they were married.” To this, Musk replied: “There would be time-stamped video if this were true.”
But when another user also jumped into the discussion and pointed out that the technology entrepreneur was seen by the building staff and the footage does not stay for long, Musk immediately took a dig at Depp and said: “This person is wrong. Why does JD want to believe he got cucked so bad anyway!?”
This comes after new images emerged showing Heard cuddling up to Musk while in the private elevator of her former husband's penthouse. In the images obtained by Daily Mail, the 34-year-old actress, who appeared to be wearing a swimsuit and a towel, was seen cozying up to Musk while they rode the elevator at a luxury LA apartment complex where she had once lived with Depp.
Depp earlier claimed that Heard started an affair with Musk just one month after their wedding in 2015. The actor's claims reportedly emerged from a $50-million defamation lawsuit filed against Heard after she accused him of domestic violence, a claim that Depp had earlier written off as an "elaborate hoax".
In the lawsuit, Depp alleged that Heard would get "late-night" visits from Musk while he was out of the country filming. He also claimed that Musk was allowed into the couple's Los Angeles home on the same night Heard "presented her battered face to the public".
However, a rep for Musk claimed at the time, "Elon and Amber didn’t start seeing each other until May 2016. Their relationship didn’t become romantic until some time later." On the other hand, Heard's attorney Eric M George said in a statement, "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."
Depp and Heard tied the knot in February 2015. However, in 2016, she filed for divorce claiming that Depp had physically and verbally abused her. She also described one of her encounters and alleged that Depp had thrown a cell phone at her during a drunken attack.
But Depp has repeatedly denied all the allegations made against him by the ‘Aquaman’ actress.
