Amber Heard Describes Meeting Elon Musk At Met Gala After Johnny Depp ‘Jumped Me Up’

Amber Heard has described the moment she met Elon Musk at the 2016 Met Gala after her then-husband, Johnny Depp, “cut me off” on the red carpet.

Ms. Heard took the stand at the multimillion-dollar libel trial in Fairfax, Virginia, on Monday, where she said she chatted with the Tesla founder at the red carpet event in New York City on May 2, 2016.

The Aquaman actor told the court that she and Depp had planned to go to the Met Gala together as guests of Ralph Lauren.

However, the event came shortly after her 30th birthday, where she said her husband “attacked” her.

She claimed that she didn’t have a phone at the time because Mr. Depp had thrown it out the window, so she couldn’t tell if he would still be accompanying her to the event.

“I wasn’t sure what was going on or when or if it would show up,” she said.

“I had no way of knowing,” he added.

Ms Heard told the court that she walked the red carpet alone and “sat down next to an empty spot for Johnny” after he “effectively stood me up on the carpet”.

It was while walking the red carpet alone that she said she met Musk, whom she described as “a gentleman” and said was at the event with her mother.

“I was standing in line right in front of a gentleman. It was Elon,” he said.

“I didn’t recognize him at first. We started talking and he had reminded me that we had met once before.”

Ms. Heard said that they developed a friendship after that meeting.

“He seemed like a true gentleman. He was very nice,” he said.

“He sat down at a nearby table and we started talking that night and eventually became friends.”

Ms Heard was then asked about the testimony of her former nurse Erin Falati, saying management had “reported illicit drug, mushroom and MDMA use on 5/9/2016 at home with a high-ranking male acquaintance profile”.

Ms Falati said Ms Heard said her husband was “unaware of his male visitor or his use of illicit drugs”.

Ms. Heard refuted Ms. Falati’s statements and said that she didn’t even think she was in Los Angeles at the time.

Ms Heard and Mr Musk are believed to have dated on and off between 2016 and 2018 and the SpaceX chief was named on their list of witnesses for the trial.

During opening statements, Ms Heard’s lawyers said that Mr Depp had been “obsessed” with Mr Musk.

The ex-spouses’ agent, Christian Carino, previously testified at trial that Heard was dating Musk around the same time she was trying to reconcile with her husband.

Ms. Heard took the stand Monday for a third day of testimony as the trial resumed after a week-long break.

Depp sues his ex-wife for defamation over a 2018 op-ed she wrote washington post where she described herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”

The pirates of the Caribbean The actor is not named in the article, which is titled “I have spoken out against sexual violence and faced the wrath of our culture. That has to change.”

However, Depp claims that it falsely implies that he is a domestic abuser, something he adamantly denies, and has left him struggling to land roles in Hollywood. He is suing for $50 million.

Ms Heard is countersuing for $100 million, accusing Mr Depp of orchestrating a “smear campaign” against her and describing his lawsuit as a continuation of “abuse and harassment”.

The trial began on April 11 in Fairfax, Virginia, with explosive testimony inside the courtroom.
