Depp is suing Heard for defamation after Heard publicly accused him of abusing her during their marriage, which lasted from February 2015 to May 2016.
According to the mag, his $50 million suit claims that Musk often visited Heard in the middle of the night while Depp was away from home traveling, including the day Heard shared her battered face online and claimed Depp had caused the injuries.
Musk’s flak says that the tech giant and actress did not begin their relationship until her marriage with Depp ended, and it did not become romantic for some time after.
Heard, who has become a public face of domestic abuse issues, denies Depp’s claims.
“This frivolous action is just the latest of Johnny Depp’s repeated efforts to silence Amber Heard,” said her lawyer, Eric M. George, to People.
