While Amber Heard was providing testimony against Johnny Depp’s libel case on the 11th day at London’s High Court, the charge that Elon Musk came to offer the actress with a “24/7 security” following her wish of order against her ex-husband came to the forefront.
Later on, she refuted such claims alleging she didn’t stay in touch with the Space X founder until 2016.
Bearing the brunt
It was on Tuesday that Depp’s attorney, Eleanor Laws QC enquired Heard based on her statement. There the lawyer voiced the latter’s claims stating Mr. Depp to be “illogically jealous” apart from the fact that Heard wasn’t pursuing any “illicit relationships”.
The trial judge, Justice Nicol, however, interceded in the hearing to mention the expression “illicit… carries a connotation”. His statement was followed by Heard’s reply who told, “Not that matters much, but no.” Later on, Ms. Laws agreed with the same saying, “No, it doesn’t.”
Hinting at a possible affair
Meanwhile, the lawyer read out the text messages between the Aquaman actress and the CEO of Tesla from 22nd May 2016.
As a question was thrown towards Heard, Ms. Laws stated that Musk offered to “arrange 24/7 security for you.” He further elaborated within the context reading out from the past conversation, “The offer would stand, even if you never wanted to see me again… anyway, sorry for being an idiot. The radio silence hurts a lot. It only matters because I really like you.”
The secret business
Afterwards, the advocate pointed at the evidence given by Alejandro Romero, an attendant at the Eastern Columbia Building, claiming he was the witness of Musk’s visit to Amber “when Mr Depp was in Australia”.
Romero’s statement on the matter read, “From March 2015 onwards, Ms Heard was visited regularly late at night, at around 11 pm to midnight, by Mr Elon Musk.”
