Billionaire tech oligarch Elon Musk and supermodel actress Amber Heard are calling it quits.
“Elon broke up with her. The timing wasn’t good for them,” a source reportedly told US Weekly
. “He’s super busy and works all the time. Amber is filming [Aquaman] in Australia until October. She’s in no position to settle with him. She feels her career is just starting.”
The two first met in 2013 following production of Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete Kills.” Heard played the film’s love interest, while Musk had a smaller cameo. Musk later emailed Rodriguez to set up a meeting. At the time, Heard was living with actor Johnny Depp, but later filed for divorce in 2016 over accusations of spousal abuse.
Musk, who has five sons with his first wife Justine Wilson and a complicated on-again, off-again relationship with “Pride and Prejudice” actress Talulah Riley, reportedly pursued Heard on the onset. “[Heard] wouldn’t go out with him for a long time,” a source told US Weekly early this year. “He even got her a Tesla!”
Eventually, the Paypal co-founder and SpaceX CEO’s efforts paid off. Romantic gossip flooded the tabloids after the two were spotted leaving each other’s room at the Delano Hotel in Miami. They kept their relationship under wraps, but later went public this April with a photo on social media of the two together at Moo Moo Gold Coast, as Musk brandished a red kiss on his cheek.
Looks like the only “Moo Moo” dinner they’ll be sharing now will be pints of Haagan Daz and freeze-dried ice-cream as they reconcile their newfound loneliness.
