American actor, Johnny Depp has accused his ex-wife Amber Heard of starting a relationship with technology entrepreneur Elon Musk just a month after they got married in 2015.
This was claimed in the $50million defamation lawsuit that he filed against his ex-wife after she accused him of domestic violence.
In the lawsuit obtained by People, the actor alleged that Heard, 32, would receive ‘late night’ visits from Musk while Depp was out of the country filming.
Depp also claims that the Tesla founder was allowed into the couple’s Los Angeles home on the same night Heard ‘presented her battered face to the public’.
Heard and Depp separated in May 2016, and according to People, a representative for Musk claims that ‘Elon and Amber didn’t start seeing each other until May 2016’.
‘Their relationship didn’t become romantic until some time later,’ the representative said.
Heard’s attorney, Eric M. George said in a statement to the magazine: ‘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.’
