Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp’s lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard has attracted much attention worldwide. And aside from Depp and Heard, many other well-known names have also been dragged into the case.

Two such names are the SpaceX billionaire Elon Musk and supermodel Cara Delevingne. Over the past few years, the two have been frequently discussed regarding matters involving the Amber Heard case.

Here’s how Musk and Delevingne tie into the much-publicized lawsuit between Depp and his ex-wife.

Elon Musk & Cara Delevingne’s Involvement with Amber Heard

Delevingne got embroiled in Depp’s legal battles against Heard for the first time in 2016 after tabloid reports claimed Depp was “driven insane” by suspicions that Heard was having an affair with the British model.

Though Delevingne identifies herself as bisexual and has had high-profile relationships with both men and women, the rumored fling between her and Heard, who is pansexual, was never substantiated.

DailyMail later reported that they had obtained an image of a woman closely resembling Delevingne riding the private elevator to Depp’s penthouse in late 2016.

According to the outlet, it was shot from the same security camera that captured pictures of Heard and Musk cuddling as they took an identical elevator the same year. These pictures were similarly published by DailyMail.

Later on, as Depp’s defamation lawsuit against Heard progressed, several allegations saying Musk, Heard, and Delevingne were involved in a three-way affair popped up.

Josh Drew — the ex-husband of Raquel “Rocky” Pennington, Heard’s best friend — contended in a deposition by Depp’s attorney Benjamin Chew that Musk had slept with Heard and Delevingne at Depp’s LA penthouse.

Drew revealed that while he couldn’t tell the exact date, the affair occurred while Heard was still married to Depp.

Several staffs at the site also supported Depp’s claims of infidelity, with many attesting that Musk visited Heard “late at night” while Depp was abroad filming Pirates of the Caribbean in 2015.

Elon Musk’s Response to the Allegations

Musk denied the allegations, which said he was involved in a three-way affair with Heard and Delevingne, when giving an exclusive statement to Page Six in June 2020.

Musk stated that Delevingne was just his friend and that they had never been intimate. He also added that the model would confirm it.

He also noted that he and Heard had only gotten romantically involved after she split from Depp.

“Also, I wish to confirm that Amber and I only started going out about a month after her divorce filing. I don’t think I was ever even in the vicinity of Amber during their marriage.”

Depp and Heard met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2011. They tied the knot four years later, on February 3, 2015. 

The pair split amidst multiple domestic violence allegations and tabloid headlines. Their divorce was completed on January 13, 2017.

Heard wrote in her December 2018 op-ed: “I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out.”

The op-ed led to Depp filing for a defamation lawsuit against Heard, where he claimed he was a victim of domestic abuse while Heard was the perpetrator.

A recording in which she admits to hitting Depp was played in a court hearing held on April 20, 2022.
