During the summer months of Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s massive tension headache of a divorce, there was a rumor that she was “hanging out” with her billionaire friend Elon Musk. It wasn’t entirely clear that their hang-outs were of the platonic variety. 30-year-old Amber and 45-year-old Elon had been seen having dinner, staying in Miami, leaving each other’s houses and offices, and they were seen together again this week.
Page Six says that Amber and Elon were seen at a VIP movie screening on Tuesday in Palo Alto, CA for Al Gore’s upcoming documentary An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. Oooh, a documentary on climate change. How romantic. I wonder if when Elon did the classic yawn-and-stretch, he turned things up to 11 by whispering: “I’m doing this to flirt, but also because I am cold. You see, the air conditioning in this theater is on full blast, and sadly, CFCs are one of the many contributors to an increase in levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide.”
UsWeekly has a source with a little more information about their relationship. The source claims it’s “casual” and they really only get together if they’re in the same city, because Elon is busy.
“He is too busy doing things like building a tunnel under L.A. and sending people into space to seriously pursue anyone. Call it what you want, but they hang out and casually see each other whenever time permits.”
So basically, Amber is casually doing a rich dude who takes her to the movies and doesn’t demand anything serious but would probably totally lend her $1.8 million if she asked nice. And she never has to worry about Elon ghosting her, because she’ll always know where to find him. Check the tunnel! Or Mars. But start with the tunnel.
