Christian Carino recalled his previous client Amber Heard confiding in him about her ex-husband after her breakup from Elon Musk while testifying about their relationship.
Carino, 53, formerly represented Depp, 58, and Heard, 36, and claims that the actress told him she was seeing Musk, 50, to “fill space.” After Depp’s lawyers recounted their text exchanges, the talent agent said he inquired why Heard was upset by her breakup with the Tesla CEO if she wasn’t “in love with him” during the pre-recorded deposition, which was played on Wednesday, April 27.
“I loathe it when a man lets me fall on the spikes by myself,” the Aquaman actress texted Carino. “They are enraged at me for abandoning them and putting things like this out there.”
“You could prevent all of this if you stopped dating ultra-famous people,” the CAA agent responded. You can hang out with a huge guy who isn’t well-known.” There were also 2017 communications in which Heard requested that letters be delivered to Depp.
“I’m not sure where to begin.” “There’s no way to begin,” she texted Carino, who claimed Heard told him she missed her ex-husband. “Finally, I am single, and my heart and mind are clear. “All I want is for him to know is that I love him and that I am sorry.”
After meeting on the set of The Rum Diary in 2011, Heard and Depp became linked for the first time 2011. After three years of courting, the couple married in two ceremonies. After accusing Depp of domestic violence, the activist filed for divorce one year later and received a temporary restraining order against him. Depp, for one, has refuted the allegations.
In the midst of her divorce from Depp, Amber Heard fuelled relationship rumors with Musk. The couple called it quits in August 2017 after a year of dating. The billionaire expressed his affections for Heard at the time.
“I was in love, and it hurt a lot.” “She broke up with me more than I broke up with her,” the South African native told Rolling Stone in November 2017, adding that the breakup had left him in “serious mental agony.” “I want to be in a long-term relationship.” I’m not interested in a one-night stand. I’m looking for a serious companion or soulmate. I’ll never be happy if I don’t have someone.”
Heard and Musk resumed their romance after five months apart before calling it quits for good. “Amber wants her independence and would rather be friends than romantically linked,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly in February 2018, adding, “Elon thought it was time to end things, and Amber agreed.” They both care about one other, but the timing isn’t quite right.”
“Elon Musk and I had a lovely relationship, and we have a beautiful friendship now, one that was built on our core principles,” the Pineapple Express actress told The Hollywood Reporter in December 2018. Intellectual curiosity, ideas and discussion, and a shared passion for science are all present. We simply connected on a number of issues that speak to who I am on the inside. I have a lot of admiration for him.”

Heard and Depp’s legal fights continued after their 2016 divorce. After writing a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post about her past history of abuse, the Oscar contender sued his ex-wife for defamation.
Depp claimed that the story had a negative impact on his Hollywood career, despite the fact that it did not mention him by name. The Pirates of the Caribbean star previously sued The Sun in the United Kingdom for calling him a “wife-beater” in a 2018 report. The High Court of Justice found two years later that the Sun’s piece was not defamatory since Heard’s claims were “essentially truthful.”
Heard and Musk first met on the set of Robert Rodriguez’s 2013 film “Machete Kills,” in which the former starred and the latter appeared in a cameo role. Despite the fact that flames flared as cameras ran, Musk said the two were only friends until Heard’s divorce from Depp and Musk’s divorce from then-wife Talulah Riley were both finalized in 2016.
In April 2017, a source told People, “When the moment was right and they were both single last year, he started pursuing her romantically.” “She was playing hard to get for a while, which piqued his attention even more.”
Later that month, the “Aquaman” star shared a photo of herself with Musk, who was sporting a “cheeky” lipstick mark on his face.
Tesla’s inventor was apparently drawn to Heard’s “edginess” and the fact that she wasn’t afraid of being “different.”
“She doesn’t get easily intimidated,” a separate insider told People at the time. She’s very attentive and enjoys learning.”
