We’re nearing the end of Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against The Sun and Amber Heard was today giving evidence again when a text message exchange between her and Elon Musk showed a more vulnerable side to the tech billionaire that we probably thought that we would never ever see.

It turns out that Amber Heard ghosted Elon Musk – or Rocketman as she had him saved in her phone – at some point during their relationship and this caused him to kinda act like the nice guy who got jilted at prom for the asshole jock but still really loves his crush. It’s actually pretty sweet but hard to believe that it’s actually Elon Musk saying these things:

Heard: For such a smart man….I would think you wouldn’t need to investigate any further than your last text to me before such radio silence commenced…
Rocketman: Well, I’m just glad you’re ok. You talked about J being violent in the past and still having keys to the apartment, so I thought something might have happened.
Heard: I did. But that must irrelevant.
I have the locks changed.
Legal divorce filing tomorrow, restraining order, all that.
Rocketman: Wtf? But you’re ok, right? Is there anything I can do?
I’m happy to engage 24/7 security for you, if you’d like. It would be utterly confidential.
Heard: All that is irrelevant why I stopped talking to you.
Rocketman: I know. And the offer would stand if you never wanted to see me again.
Anyway, sorry for being an idiot. The radio silence hurt a lot. It only matter because I really like you.
Poor Elon, although I suppose it all turned out OK for him after he married Grimes, had another baby and probably made more money whilst I was typing this then I have in my entire life.
Interestingly, there was a stone cold exchange between Depp’s lawyer and Heard after this bit as well, calling out her hypocrisy of engaging with other men but taking issue with Depp’s jealousy:
“Were you telling Mr. Depp about this?”
“Time and again, you have accused [Depp] of being jealous, but we can see here you are in communication with someone,” Laws said.
But Heard responded, saying, “I think all jealousy could be deemed illogical.”
Oof. Shots fired. This is only going to get spicier as we head into the final stretch.
