Elon Musk Challenges Johnny Depp to a ‘Cage Fight’ Amid Amber Heard Trial

Amid rumors of his affair with Amber Heard, Tesla tycoon, Elon Musk, has finally spoken out, and none of us were expecting to hear what he had to say…

The Kentucky born actor, who has been renowned in Hollywood since the 1990s, has been embroiled in a highly publicized domestic abuse scandal with his ex-wife, Amber Heard, for the last 4 years.

Another incredibly famous face has been dragged into the equation and, this week, he made some pretty alarming claims.

After meeting on the set of The Rum Diary in 2011, Johnny started dating Texan actress and model, Amber Heard, shortly after calling it quits with his long-term partner, Vanessa Paradis.

Johnny and Amber enjoyed a happy couple of years together, and would regularly attend red-carpet events as a couple, arm-in-arm and seemingly madly in love.

And, not ones to waste any time, hastily tied the knot just one year later in February 2015.

Their honeymoon period was rather short-lived as, just months after their marriage, Johnny reportedly suffered a hand injury as a result of “smashing bottles and windows” during a heated argument with his wife.

So it came as no shock when Amber filed for divorce in March 2016, just fifteen months after the couple had initially exchanged their “I do”s.

With many news outlets reporting that Amber had cited “irreconcilable differences” while filing the divorce petition.

Amber filed a restraining order against Johnny, claiming that he had previously assaulted her.

It was a big allegation to make…

So people were confused when Amber retracted her allegations just one day before the hearing was due to be held.

Amber had alleged that the actor had hit her on several occasions, and even provided video footage of him flinging a glass of wine across the room in a fit of rage.

And that he would frequently lash out at her, both verbally and physically.

Though she didn’t explicitly name Johnny in her op-ed, she did allude to the time period when, “two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out.”

Who was even made the American Civil Liberties Union’s “Ambassador for Women’s Issues”.

And, despite profusely denying all the allegations against him, Johnny found his career taking a hit as a result of the on-going scandal.

And his appearance in J.K Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts sequel, The Crimes of Grindelwald, was heavily criticized.

Last year, Johnny filed a $50-million defamation case against Amber and presented evidence that he was the one on the receiving end of the abuse, not the other way around.

Johnny’s defamation lawsuit read: “The op-ed [Amber’s article] depended on the central premise that Ms. Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Mr. Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her.”

And listed down incidents of Amber’s alleged abuse since the start of their marriage, including punching and kicking, as well as staging her attacks.

“She hit, punched and kicked me. She also repeatedly and frequently threw objects into my body and head, including heavy bottles, soda cans, burning candles, television remote controls and paint thinner cans, which severely injured me.” His lawsuit read.

Johnny’s lawyer, Adam Waldman presented new evidence that could tarnish Amber’s reputation even further.

Which were dated in 2016, on a Sunday that was a suspected weekend wherein Amber claimed Johnny had abused her.

At one point, Musk, who was saved as “Rocketman” in her phone, asked about the alleged abuse and she said it was “irrelevant.” They then go onto discuss 24/7 security which Musk said he would provide for her “confidentially.”

And this is where Musk reveals that he “really likes [her]” and insinuated that he’d like to stay in contact with her despite their current arrangement. She then told him to ring her because there are things she couldn’t discuss “over text.”

Since the texts were revealed back in June, Elon has remained quiet on the matter, and hasn’t addressed or responded to the rumors of their affair.

In a recent interview with The New York Times, the Tesla CEO briefly weighed in on the allegations and profusely denied any involvement.

“I definitely was not having an affair with Amber while she was married to Johnny, this is totally false. We did not have the threesome, you know. So I think people think these things are generally more salacious than they are.”

He joked: “If Johnny wants a cage fight, just let me know.”

“For the two of them, I would just recommend that they bury the hatchet and move on.”
