Rumor that Amber Heard is selling Tesla — gifted by Elon Musk — to pay off Johnny Depp goes viral!
'Amber Heard SELLING Elon Musk's gift to her, a Tesla Model S, to help pay for her appeal,' a user claimed on Twitter
The weeks-long defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard concluded on June 1 with the jury finding the 36-year-old actress' abuse allegations against the 59-year-old actor to be defamatory. After losing the high-profile legal battle, Heard owes Depp $10.35 million in damages.
As per reports, Heard is selling her Tesla, which was gifted to her by her former boyfriend, billionaire Elon Musk. There has been speculation that Heard and Musk were having an affair while the actress was still married to Depp. The rumors sparked further after a video of the two inside Depp's penthouse elevator was leaked. It has been reported that Musk gifted Heard a Tesla car during their relationship.
Heard owns the Model S which is estimated to be worth over $100,000 with all the equipped specifications. Twitter user @JosephMorrisYT took to the platform to claim that Heard is selling off the car to help pay for her appeal. "Amber Heard SELLING Elon Musk's gift to her, a Tesla Model S, to help pay for her appeal. #AmberHeardlsAnAbuser," it reads. The photo attached shows the selling price of the car, which is $141,147.
It has not yet been confirmed whether it is actually Heard's Tesla. Heard claimed in her testimony that she met Musk in 2016 at the Met Gala red carpet event after she divorced Depp and Musk had separated from his former wife, Talulah Riley. The video showing the couple cuddling in the elevator of Depp's penthouse was provided as evidence in court. Security guards at the penthouse also testified that Musk visited Heard multiple times before and after she divorced Depp.
In February 2018, sources told US Weekly that Heard and Musk had split. "Amber wants her independence and prefers being friends rather than romantically linked. Elon decided it was time to end things, and Amber agreed. They both care for one another, but the timing just isn't right." In August, Heard and Musk gave a statement to the portal saying, "Having read recent articles about our relationship, we would like to speak for ourselves."
The duo said, "The distance has been really tough on our relationship because we haven't been able to see each other much. All relationships have their ups and downs, of course. People occasionally send out speculation, which has no basis in fact, without our knowledge, believing that they have our best interests in mind. Sometimes, other agendas are at work."

"However, we would like to state directly that we have the utmost respect for one another, and it would be troubling if anyone had the impression that we thought otherwise. As a closing note, it is worth bearing in mind that events are always amplified and dramatized in a high-profile relationship, whether the people involved like it or not (and we definitely don't). The reality is that this is just a normal relationship with a giant magnifying glass applied," they concluded.
There were rumors of Heard and Musk having a three-way relationship with model Cara Delevingne. "Cara and I are friends, but we've never been intimate. She would confirm this. Also, I wish to confirm again that Amber and I only started going out about a month after her divorce filing. I don't think I was ever even in the vicinity of Amber during their marriage!" Musk told Page Six in 2020.
