Amber Heard ‘felt nothing’ during her brief relationship with Elon Musk, her therapist told the court.
Johnny Depp’s attorneys recently rested their case in the $50 million (£38m) defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife, centred on a 2018 Washington Post op-ed which had the ‘clear implication’ he was an abuser, they’ve alleged.
Heard has since taken the stand to testify against Depp and her brief relationship with Elon Musk has been discussed. While they were together in the wake of her separation from the Pirates of the Caribbean star, Musk isn’t expected to testify.
It keeps getting messier. Amber Heard took the stand for the second time amid her ongoing defamation case against ex-husband Johnny Depp, this time focusing on the actor’s alleged jealousy issues.

Heard said the situation was a “no-win” scenario for her and claimed that the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas star would allegedly become so enraged that it was like she “had told him [she] had had an affair; he was that angry.”
The Danish Girl star added that she tried not to “engage” during heated conversations with the Sweeny Todd actor but he would allegedly pressure her to tell him if Franco “slipped her the tongue” during kissing scenes. According to Heard, Depp would also allegedly say “really disgusting things about my body.”
Depp earlier claimed that Heard cheated on him with Musk, as well as James Franco, who also isn’t expected to testify.
Dr. Dawn Hughes, a forensic psychologist brought on by Heard’s team, told the court that Heard started dating Musk after meeting him at the 2016 Met Gala, coming after a serious argument which led to their separation.
Reading from her notes from her time with Heard, it was claimed the Aquaman star told Dr. Hughes: “I was heartbroken. My soul was dead. Felt nothing then.”
Her relationship with the Tesla and SpaceX chief came to an end in March 2018, she told Dr. Hughes, despite rumours circulating about their separation in late 2017.
Earlier in the trial, the former talent agent of both Heard and Depp, Christian Carino, testified in a prerecorded disposition, where he was questioned over texts between him and Heard after news of her break-up with Musk went public.
In one message, Heard wrote: “Dealing with breakup. I hate when things go public. C, I’m so sad.
Carino was then asked to explain what he meant, to which he said: “I’m saying, why would you be sad if you weren’t in love with him, to begin with?”
Heard replied: “I know, but I wanted time to grieve and recover in my own time… yet again another man lets me fall on the spikes by myself. They get mad for leaving me and put things like this out there.
Carino responded: “You can avoid this by not dating uber-famous people.”
Musk earlier confirmed their relationship didn’t overlap with Heard’s marriage to Depp, and said: “Btw, just to clear up some of the press storms this weekend, although Amber and I did break up, we are still friends, remain close and love one another.
“Long-distance relationships when both partners have intense work obligations are always difficult, but who knows what the future holds.”
