The ongoing lawsuit stems from an op-ed that Heard wrote for the Washington Post. This article was about abusive relationships in 2018 and was titled: “Amber Heard: I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change“ Though the article did not name Depp directly, the actor claimed that it hurt his career. The trial for this suit started in April 2022 and has seen a lot of drama up till now.

In her testimony, Amber Heard said that she met Elon Musk at the Met gala. Recalling her meeting with Musk, she said  “I didn’t recognize him until we started talking. He’d reminded me we’d met once before. We spoke on the red carpet in the waiting line. He seemed like a real gentleman.”

Heard dated Musk for a while after breaking up with Johnny Depp.

Heard said that Johnny Depp didn’t accompany her for the fittings or the Met gala event where she met Musk. Further, she narrated her ordeal in reaching the Met gala venue alone without Depp, saying “I got out of the car and walked the red carpet by myself, with someone from Ralph Lauren’s team, sat next to an empty place setting for Johnny – he effectively stood me up on the carpet.” The ex-couple had a short-lived marriage full of disputes and fights, which apparently continued after they separated in the form of legal battles. Depp first unsuccessfully sued a British newspaper in the UK and is now fighting a 50 million dollar defamation suit trial against her in the US.
