Tesla mogul Elon Musk has spoken out in regards to the trial between his ex-girlfriend Amber Heard, and her ex-husband Johnny Depp. He had been named within the defamation case as Johnny accused Amber of getting an affair with Elon during their marriage and having a threesome with him and model Cara Delevingne – something Amber denied.
Elon responded to a tweet from MIT research scientist Lex Fridman, who wrote: “My takeaways from Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial:
“1. Fame is one hell of a drug (for some).
“2. Psychiatrists & lawyers are available in drastically various levels of skill.
“3. Lying to thousands and thousands of individuals is something humans are able to.
“The space has been really tough on our relationship, because we’ve not been in a position to see one another much.
“All relationships have their ups and downs, in fact. People occasionally send out speculation, which has no basis in actual fact, without our knowledge, believing that they’ve our greatest interests in mind.
“Sometimes, other agendas are at work. It could actually get a little bit weird… Nevertheless, we would love to state directly that we have now the utmost respect for each other, and it will be troubling if anyone had the impression that we thought otherwise.”
Elon also issued his own statement on the breakup, tweeting: “Btw, simply to clear up among the press storms this weekend, although Amber and I did break up, we’re still friends, remain close and love each other.
“Long-distance relationships when each partners have intense work obligations are at all times difficult, but who knows what the long run holds.”
Elon opened up further about his heartache in a later interview with Rolling Stone, saying: “I just broke up with my girlfriend. I used to be really in love, and it hurt bad.
“Well, she broke up with me greater than I broke up together with her, I feel.”
At a Tesla event three weeks later, Elon added: “I have been in severe emotional pain for the previous couple of weeks. Severe.”
