Relationship: Amber Heard Denies Cheating On Johnny Depp
Amber Heard, an American actress, has denied cheating on Johnny Depp, her former husband, with Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, Inc; James Franco, an actor; or “anybody else” as alleged.
Heard appeared in a London court on Tuesday to testify against her ex-husband amid ongoing trial involving the latter and The Sun UK’s publisher.
Depp, 57, had filed a lawsuit against the media outlet over a 2018 article that labelled him a “wife beater” for allegedly abusing Heard.
During the day two of the 11-day trial bordering on libel, the actress dismissed claims that Musk visited her in 2015 while Depp was away.
The ‘Aquaman’ star had also brought a bruised photo of herself showing injuries on her face after her husband allegedly attacked her on May 22, 2016.
At the court, the movie star had accused Depp of throwing a cellphone at her face that evening “like he was a baseball pitcher.”
But Eleanor Laws, Depp’s lawyer, had argued that Heard fabricated the claims, wondering why no one saw the said injury on her face when the alleged attack took place at the couple’s Los Angeles building then.
Buttressing his point, Laws had showed several surveillance videos from an elevator in the building that raised doubts about Heard’s claims.
Heard, whose testimony remains an integral part of the trial, however, said her injuries had been concealed by the makeup on her face while she was leaving the house after the incident.
The 34-year-old actress also played down the alleged “illicit relationship” between her and Musk, noting they were only friends.
Laws had in court claimed the model had an “affair” with the Tesla founder, citing a text message he reportedly sent to her after she told him about Depp’s attack on her.
“The offer would stand, even if you never wanted to see me again… anyway, sorry for being an idiot,” Laws had quoted Musk as saying in the message, according to BBC.
“The radio silence hurts a lot. It only matters because I really like you.”
Depp and Heard met in 2009 on the set of ‘The Rum Diary’, which they both featured in and consequently tied the knot at a private ceremony in 2015.
But a year after the union, Heard had filed for divorce, accusing her husband of domestic abuse.
