New twist in the affair that fascinates America: the director of Tesla will not come to support the star ofAquaman.
“He will not testify”. These were the four words of Alex Spiro, Elon Musk’s lawyer, on Wednesday April 27 to the American group NBC, about his client’s involvement in the 50 million dollar (47 million euros) defamation lawsuit brought by Johnny Depp against his ex-wife, Amber Heard. The details for which the new boss of Twitter no longer wishes to testify have not, however, been disclosed.

It has now been three weeks since witnesses filed in the trial of the terrible former spouses, which is being held in Fairfax, Va., to determine who the star of Pirates of the Caribbean or the mother of 1-year-old Oonagh Heard was a victim of domestic violence. But a blow for the 36-year-old actress: her former companion, the 50-year-old businessman, and incidentally the richest man in the world, has decided not to be a potential witness in the trial.
A witness for one, a proof for another
Elon Musk’s name was first mentioned in Johnny Depp’s defamation case six years ago, when he accused Amber Heard of having an affair with the Space X founder, then that they were still married, as reported by the media Cerfia Cultureon his Twitter account.
Although they met in 2013, on the set of the action movie Machete Kills, the two lovers “only started seeing each other in May 2016, and on top of that, it was infrequent. Their relationship did not become romantic until some time later,” he told E! News , a representative of Elon Musk, father of Nevada Alexander (died aged 10 weeks), twins Griffin and Xavier, 18, triplets Kai, Saxon and Damian, 16, of X Æ A-XII, 1 year (yes, that’s a first name) and from Exa Dark Sideræl, 4 months. One hell of a tribe.
The next question we are entitled to ask ourselves: will James Franco, who was to testify by videoconference like Elon Musk in favor of Amber Heard, also withdraw at the last moment?
