Elon Musk speaks his piece on the Johnny Depp–Amber Heard trial – this after being sucked into the middle of it – and his sense of separation from the two is… turn over a new leaf, y’all.
The Tesla chief responded to someone on Twitter who recapped his thoughts on the lawsuit and the defining moments — a tweet you might interpret as anti-Amber — with EM interjecting… “I hope they will both move on. At their best, they’re all amazing.”
It’s an interesting take — especially since he briefly dated Amber after her split from Johnny … and, according to court testimony, also dumped large piles of cash on her behalf.
At first glance, you could tell he views them both as deeply flawed…but also notes a side of each that shines. Oddly, we’re not aware of any relationship between Elon and Johnny – he only spent time with AH, it seems – so his analysis is a bit cryptic.
As we’ve all heard in this lawsuit… the COO of the ACLU, Terence Doughertytestified about what Amber had (or hadn’t, rather) given since she promised $3.5 million following her divorce – noting that they had only done received a small piece of change from her personally.
Now, Dougherty has suggested that Elon donated at least $500,000 to the ACLU in Amber’s honor. Same for Children’s Hospital…another $500,000 from Elon as well, which was also revealed in court. That’s over a million dollars for a woman he’s been with for maybe a year. Yeah…
Elon was speculated to potentially testify in this case, but he was never called…neither. Paul Bettany Where James Francoother men who have been involved in this thing.
As to where we go from here… the jury entered into deliberation Friday without reaching a decision, so they will resume on Tuesday to decide once and for all who wins here. Speaking of jurors — Judge Penney Azcarate decided that they would remain anonymous for a year.
She announced the decision on Friday before reading the instructions to the jury — this, according to reports, following her decision on a motion to that effect … which was apparently filed by Amber.
