Tesla CEO Elon Musk weighs in on Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard

Tesla CEO Elon Musk weighed in on the high-profile defamation trial of his ex-girlfriend Amber Heard and Johnny Depp with a Twitter post on Saturday. 

‘I hope they both move on,’ Musk tweeted. ‘At their best, they are each incredible.’

Musk and Heard began dating around the time of her split with Depp in May 2016 and by August the following year they had broken up. They got together again and dated briefly.

Earlier this week, Musk and new girlfriend Natasha Bassett, 27, were spotted in St. Tropez having a low-key lunch at the Cheval Blanc hotel.

Lily-Rose Depp celebrates turning 23 amid father Johnny’s $100M libel trial

Lily-Rose Depp celebrated her 23rd birthday on Saturday amid her father Johnny’s $100million libel trial with his ex-wife Amber Heard.

The actress, 23, shared a series of snaps while wearing a sash that read: ‘Birthday princess’.

The star, who is also the daughter of French actress Vanessa Paradis, also shared a photo of a bouquet of flowers she received for her birthday.

Her father Johnny has a birthday coming up on June 9. He’ll be 58 years old. 

A verdict in his defamation case with ex Amber Heard has not yet been reached. Jury deliberations are set to resume today at 9 a.m.

Depp gets standing ovation after surprise performances in the UK two nights in a row

Johnny Depp received a standing ovation after performing at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Monday night alongside guitarist Jeff Beck for the second night in a row.

The actor waved and blew kisses to the crowd as they gave him a standing ovation and cheered his name after the set.

The actor joined Jeff Beck at London’s Royal Albert Hall playing seven songs including Jimi Hendrix’s Little Wing and John Lennon’s Isolation.

Depp spent Sunday night onstage after apparently flying straight from his libel trial in Fairfax, Virginia, to Sheffield City Hall to rock with Beck, performing a cover of John Lennon’s ‘Isolation.’

The Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial continues Tuesday morning in Fairfax, Virginia.

Jurors are set to resume deliberations at 9 a.m. at the Fairfax County Courthouse in Fairfax, Virginia.

A verdict could come as early as today. It’s not clear whether Depp will return to Fairfax for the verdict.

Depp, the 58-year-old ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star, sued ex-wife Heard in Virginia for $50 million and argued that she defamed him when she called herself ‘a public figure representing domestic abuse’ in a newspaper opinion piece.

Heard, 36, countersued for $100 million, saying Depp smeared her when his lawyer called her accusations a ‘hoax.’

The seven-person jury will continue deliberating on whether either actor was defamed and deserves millions of dollars in damages.

Jurors deliberated for about two hours Friday before adjourning for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
