Update: Elon Musk Breaks His Silence on Relationship Status With Amber
Elon Musk has finally broken his silence on his split with girlfriend Amber Heard. In response to a picture Amber posted of herself and the cartoon character Ariel of “The Little Mermaid” on Instagram, Musk’s spontaneous response was “Cute,” followed by a measured statement confirming the break-up.
Rumours are rife that Tech mogul Elon Musk, 46, has dumped his girl friend Amber Heard, 31, ending the year-long relationship reportedly because he was unhappy with “certain things he had heard about her behavior.”
An unnamed source informed The Mail on Sunday:
“It’s all over between Amber and Elon and she’s devastated. It was his decision. He ended it a week ago. He’d heard certain things about her behavior that didn’t sit well with him. Amber can be very manipulative and selfish. Elon’s back in LA while she’s licking her wounds in Australia.”
Yet another anonymous source told “Us Weekly” that “the timing wasn’t good for them. He’s super busy and works all the time. Amber is filming [Aquaman] in Australia until October. She’s in no position to settle with him. She feels her career is just starting.”
Elon met Amber back in 2013 on the sets of Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete Kills” when she was already in a relationship with Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp. “Hollywood Reporter” had reported at the time that Elon wanted to meet Amber “just out of curiosity” and was “not angling for a date” when he requested Rodriguez to set up a dinner date with the lady.
Amber went on to marry Johnny Depp in February 2015 and filed for divorce in May the following year.
Although Elon had been seeing Amber for some time, it was only in April that the couple publicly acknowledged there was more to the relationship than met the eye.
Shortly after being spotted and photographed arm-in-arm in an Australian wildlife sanctuary, a photograph of the doting couple was posted on Amber’s Instagram account. The two of them can be seen in a restaurant, presumably in Australia, with Amber’s arm resting on Elon’s shoulder while he’s looking away exposing the right side of his face with a visible lipstick smooch impression on his cheek.
The Tesla and SpaceX billionaire has been married twice before and has five sons with his first wife and Canadian author Justine Wilson whom he married in 2000 and separated from in 2008.
Soon after the split in 2008, Elon started dating British actress Talulah Riley, marrying her in 2010. Elon ended the relationship in 2012 tweeting to Riley “It was an amazing four years. I will love you forever. You will make someone very happy one day.”
However, the couple remarried in 2014 and re-divorced in 2016.
Meanwhile, Amber is trying to put up a brave front amid all the rumors and speculations flying around about her breakup with her billionaire boyfriend.
She uploaded a picture of herself partying with friends on Monday captioning it “BBQ dance party, whaaaat….”
The previous day, she had shared another picture of herself with friends throwing petals in the air.
One has to admit that the news of the separation has come as a shock what with Elon proudly posting Amber’s picture in her “Aquaman” character Mera as recently as May. He
had captioned the post “@AmberHeard as Queen of Atlantis.”
