HOLLYWOOD: Johnny Depp claims ex-wife Amber Heard had a secret fling with Tesla founder Elon Musk that started just one month after their marriage. He also made some more serious allegations against ‘Aquaman’ actress after filing a $50 million defamation lawsuit against her.
Deep’s lawyers filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard, arguing that her abuse allegations last December “were part of an elaborate hoax to generate positive publicity and advance her career”.
Heard publicly accused him of abusing her during their marriage, which lasted from February 2015 to May 2016.
According to foreign media reports, Depp’s lawsuit claims Musk often visited Heard in the middle of the night while Depp was away from home travelling, including the day Heard shared her battered face online and claimed Depp had caused the injuries.
He also alleges that because of Heard he suffered financial losses and also lost his lucrative role as Jack Sparrow in the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise.
