Amber Heard & Elon Musk are Instagram-official & pap-stroll official now

Having moo moo at Moo Moo Gold Coast with @AmberHeard, @CreepyPuppet and @CowanFilms

A post shared by Elon Musk (@elonmusk) on

Just last week, Amber Heard’s father maybe-probably went rogue and confirmed that his daughter was getting very serious with billionaire Elon Musk. Elon and Amber have been circling each other for years. Reportedly, Elon became infatuated with her when she was dating Johnny Depp. Just months after Amber filed for divorce from Depp last year, Elon seemingly made his move and played the long game, which was maybe-probably offering a shoulder to cry on and spending time together as friends. Late last year, they seemed to move beyond just-friends into friends-with-benefits. And now her dad says that Amber wants to marry Elon and have his babies.

At the time, I sort of felt like “yeah, yeah, we’ll see.” Well, we’re seeing. Elon and Amber are now Instagram-official. They traveled to Gold Coast, Australia together and not only did they get pap’d at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary together, they ended up posting similar Instagrams last night. They were grabbing dinner together and note the lipstick-smack on Elon’s cheek. Amber has marked her territory! You can see photos of Elon and Amber at the wildlife sanctuary here.

So, what does this all mean? I think it means the traditional thing: they are pap-stroll and Instagram-official. They are a couple. They are happening, and they’ve been happening quietly for months. I hope Amber doesn’t rush into anything, but who knows?

    This’ll get messy real quick

  2. Prince says:

    JD fans are already attacking her for that.

    • jinni says:

      Elon’s fans are attacking her too and saying he’s stupid. Doesn’t look like anyways here for them, but knowing Heard she is going to try her damnedest to make this relationship happen.

    • Routh says:

      Don’t blame JD fans for everything.On IG Elon fans are also attacking her and so do many of her lesbian fans on other boards.She’s just not liked either you like it or not.

    • doglover says:

      Some of Depp’s fans use everything to attack her because you know poor Johnny was her victim.

      • jinni says:

        No they think being with her is a bad look for him and don’t care one thing for Depp. People are trying to act like this is about Depp when this has everything to do with her. Before the abuse allegation people did not like her and called her a golddigger on this site and elsewhere even when Depp would say glowing things about her during the Transcendence promotion tour.

        Musk fans probably don’t like how some of her fans are making Elon out to be abusive because of the things his first wife said about him. Her fans see Elon as a continuation of her dating abusive men. Elon fans don’t like that.

      • Craven says:

        People did label her a gold digger and I thought those people were ridiculous at the time too. How can you possibly claim to know what another persons motivations are? Unless of course they are projecting their own twisted motivations for dating their own partner on another person of course.

        In Ambers case, their “proof” of gold digging turned out to be proof of an abusive relationship. Like when she broke up with Johnny before he proposed and dated that girl in Paris and people screamed that she was manipulating him with jealousy into a proposal? Turns out she was attempting to break free after his first abusive incident. When she delayed the wedding, they screamed that she was trying to get out of signing a prenup. Turned out she was having serious cold feet and she signed a pretty unfavorable prenup anyway. When she seemed sullen at their photo ops on red carpets, people screamed that she cant even feign interest she just wants the money. Turned out she was living in hell. The point is, people need to shut it about knowing what drives others or they look like nasty aholes when a fuller picture takes shape.

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        I agree with you Craven- I never thought that Johnny Depp’s money was the only reason why she got with him. I do think income may be one of the things she looks at in considering whether or not she’ll date someone in Hollywood though (don’t know about the incomes of her past girlfriends).

  3. Lola says:

    Huh?! I really thought she’d be more careful with men after the whole Depp saga. I was team Amber during the divorce but I’m side-eying this HARD. I’m sure Elon seems charming now but from all accounts from his exes he is extremely controlling and neurotic. What would ‘free spirit’ Amber want with him? She must have cashed in her Aquaman cheque recently, so surely she’s not that desperate for money? Be careful girl, don’t let your pursuit of wealth put you in another dangerous situation!

    • Guest says:

      I must have missed those stories about Elon. *Googling*

    • Lucy says:

      You know I was along the same line of thinking as you but then again this is classic of abuse victims, they tend to jump into these relationships again. I mean think of it, she probably has very low self esteem after the Depp saga and then a billionaire shows all this adoration for her, she’s probably flattered.
      That being said I do think that there is always a gold-digger quality to Amber but being a gold-digger doesn’t mean abuse is okay.

      • zxc says:

        She didn’t want ny money from JD though and donated to charity. Still being called a gold digger though… it;s not like she hangs out with poor guys, you know.

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      …and worst of all, the man has moobs…

    • Embee says:

      I’ve thought from the first whisperings of this relationship that Musk looked like protection/security from Depp to her. A powerful aphrodisiac for a vulnerable person. Plus he has been rumored to have been smitten with her, which would give her a sense of control. Unlike drug-addled Depp, Musk appears to be in control of himself. I am sure in her current frame of mind he looks like a perfect partner.

  4. jinni says:

    There’s gold in them thar hills.

    Future Melania Trump.

    • SM says:

      So now anyone who dates a millionare is a Melania?

      • jinni says:

        Nope. They can be Wendi Deng too or any number of famous golddiggers who made a name for themselves by hoodwinking and sleeping with dumb rich men. Take your pick.

        Since there is so much Trump news on this site Melania was the first to come to mind.

      • AreYouForReal? says:

        Hoodwinking? Yeah, those poor, defenseless dears… Give me a break. They’re paying for attention, feeling that someone beautiful desires them, etc.

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        “…by hoodwinking and sleeping with dumb rich men.” Clearly someone here has been socialized to baby men and loathe her own sex. The fact that you feel entitled to hate and resent women who want a man with money says more about your own internalized misogyny than what you think it says about her.
        You do realize that the truth could be somewhere in between ” Evil seductress Amber is tricking rich men into marrying them, exclusively for their money” and ‘Amber doesn’t care about material things and would be willing to marry a garbage man’, right? She could be someone who’s surrounded mostly by people who have money(being in Hollywood) and prefers to be in a relationship with someone who doesn’t make less than her. But people here who seem to know more about who she’s dated than both of us are saying that not everybody she’s dated has been wealthier than her.

    • anna says:

      right. and maybe, just maybe, they really like each other. just as poor people are not good people by virtue of being poor, rich people are not bad by virtue of being rich, neither are their partners all golddigging sluts and toyboys. 45 and melania, that’s a different story.

    • hmm says:

      Seriously? This makes me so angry and I have no personal connection to this girl. She has basically done everything she could at this point to prove she is not a golddigger. The girl can’t win.

      Musk is without a doubt my daydream celeb crush – and it has nothing to do with his money. That man is brilliant and driven and ambitious as HELL and loves to read.

      • LAK says:

        Hmm: i’m with you. And giggled at your final qualifier….’and loves to read’. Lol

      • Erinn says:

        Plus… wasn’t she friends with him before all of this? Like for a few years at least? I’m pretty sure I read that on here before.

      • BritAfrica says:

        But Amber still needs to be careful. Wealthy men do have a tendency to be controlling and ex-wife #1 has confirmed that!

      • Leah says:

        So because hes is brilliant hes a dream crush? Love yourself girl. Hes a trump apologizer. (History will judge that) And according to his first wife controlling with women. Lots of women conveniently excuse a douche because hes physically attractive. Some women will excuse a douche because .. oh he is so brilliant. Same thing really.

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        I think we have a resident fMRA on these threads. Sad. So many women voted for Trump.

      • MB says:

        Totally and completely 100% this.
        She really cant win, and frankly, no woman of lesser-means who hooks up with an obscenely wealthy man ever can. They are always accused of being gold diggers, even if they are already wealthy in their own right; see: Janet Jackson. And no matter what, the people who are making the accusations will stand behind that opinion citing all kinds of other tabloid gossip, previous relationships, and whatever else they can cling onto as though they actually KNOW the person and know for a fact that they are gold diggers. Its really sad how quick people are to judge women for just living their lives.

  5. Snazzy says:

    As long as she’s happy, good for her!

    • cathy says:

      I agree. She put up with an abusive, drug addicted, alcoholic for a couple of years and she deserves happiness. They’re both adults. I hope she finds happiness.

      • Erin says:

        Oh yes. Who has a history of abuse? Oh, that would be Amber. Who does NOT have a history of abuse? That would be Johnny. In her interviews she ranted on and on about how strong she was…she said she didn’t need anybody. Her “friends” would say how she could “go trailer park” real fast. She liked about her dogs and cost Johnny several million dollars to get out of that mess. He then takes her on a honeymoon on the Orient Express, buying her anything she wanted. And she treated him like crap…insisting her buddies live, rent free, in his homes. She had to be surrounded by lesbians all the time. He messed up by getting involved with her…big time. Now it’s this other bozos turn.

  6. Toot says:

    Well, this dudes been wanting Amber for awhile. Good Luck!

  7. Keri says:

    She does not look well. And what is the mark on her arm?

  8. Talie says:

    I didn’t realize he had 6 kids! Wowza…

    • Millenial says:

      I think he has five living children — 1 set of twins and 1 set of triplets from his first marriage to Justine. They also had one son who died from SIDS, so that may be where they get the 6 number.

      From what I’ve gathered about his personality, I’m not convinced he’s up for starting family #2. First, the man already has 5 kids. Second, he seems overly interested in having a blonde trophy wife — her having kids would sort of ruin his playboy lifestyle. Third, I think Amber will get out before they get that far. His personality has doomed his last two marriages (3, if you count the fact that he married the second wife twice) so she’s bound to figure it out sooner or later.

  9. Mousyb says:

    How can she not look at the three young blonde wives before her (and read their exposes) and realize its going to be her next sooner or later…

    • astrid says:


    • SpareMe says:

      Technically it’s one young blonde ex wife. OG wife was his age and brunette until she went blind years later at his request

    • loveotterly says:

      I think she is a smart girl. Pop out a baby or even have a short marriage and she’s set for life. I think Depp is a nutcase but I get the feeling form her that she is very calculating and knows exactly what she is doing.

  10. Shambles says:

    Messsssssssss. Come on, Amber.

    We know they went to Australia, but did she smuggle any puppies?!

  11. Rocio says:

    She looks great. Good for her!

  12. six says:

    What makes Amber Heard quite a remarkable woman in my opinion, is the obvious delight she takes in showing the public how good she is at strategizing and fighting to get what she wants. She loves to pull stunts and have an audience. Look at her face in that Instagram picture! The smug is oozing out of every pore.

    So no, not a gold digger and yes, certainly, a former victim of abuse, BUT also an incredible, incredible FAME WH*RE!

    • Amide says:

      Not new for Heard. Before she got with Depp, Heard was infamous for her papstrolls. At garages, supermarkets etc. Her HW career reused to happen and her attempt at TV shows – Palm Springs, The Playboy Club were also spectacular flops. The Depp relationship gave her the MET Gala invites, mag covers nothing else could.😄

      • Tiffany says:

        The show was the Hidden Palms, and she was the least interesting thing on the show. Her lack of story lines proved it. And yes, I thoroughly enjoyed that show.

  13. Routh says:

    She just ruined her reputation.I read about it on fb today and under every post about it, the 95% of comments were calling her out.So PR wise it’s a very bad move.
    Now as a couple,they really give me the same vibes with when she went public with Depp,like,they just don’t look right,very forced.And the staged pap roll made it worse.According to his first wife he’s quite the douchebag too.My humble opinion is that they shouldn’t have come out so early cause they are facing a public opinion backlash.Should have waited a few months more,it’s not even a year since filing for divorce.Bad move especially for her.Image is everything when you are trying to have a career and things are not looking good.

    • kate says:

      Her reputation was ruined the minute she dared say something against Scarfmonster. I do not recall one single woman coming forwrad with abuse allegations not being ripped apart by the public (Amber Heard, Angelina Jolie sort of, Nafissatou diallo, the 15+ women who accused Trump and so and so forth)

      • anna says:


      • MB says:

        People make horrible comments about other peoples lives because they are horrible. This has nothing to do with her and everything to do with the fact that a lot of people are judgemental and pathetic and cant bring themselves to be happy for anyone, nor can they “steep” to sympathise or empathise for someone (women) who has been treated poorly by their idol/s.

  14. Clare says:

    All i’m gonna say is

    1. Amber has a type – abusive/reclusive/controlling and stinking rich
    2. Being a victim of abuse (which is clearly is), and a woman who loves rich men (which she appears to be) are not mutually exclusive.

    • K says:

      Yeah, I agree with this. I get so annoyed when people insist a woman who has been abused must be an angel (though not as annoyed as I am when people insist a woman who is not an angel cannot be abused).

      Having said that, I note that people always sneer that someone is a gold digger, while never commenting on rich, unattractive old men who exploit their financial assets to hook young women they’d never have a shot at ordinarily. In an employment situation, we blame the most powerful party. In relationships, we blame the younger and financially vulnerable one.

      Exchanging beauty for cash in a relationship is a pretty grubby transaction, but it’s so on both sides.

    • Bridget says:

      So you’re conveniently forgetting all of the women she’s dated, who most definitely do not fit that bill?

      • Lizzy says:

        Yes everyone seems to be forgetting the woman she abused in public. Poof. Just like that her past is rewritten.

    • G says:

      Yuuup. What I find interesting is that in some ways she seems to have very little regard for public opinion, despite the fact that she relies on our perception to craft her own image of herself. She’s not likeable, nor has she ever really been, and this new relationship certainly hasn’t done anything to change that. As an actress you would think that she might care, particularly since she doesn’t appear to have much talent to fall back on.

      Judging from the few interviews I’ve seen of her, I think she enjoys cultivating that very affected, ‘badass’, boys’-girl-who-shoots-guns-and-loves-old-cars sexpot persona. A real Cool Girl. A taste for older, controlling, somewhat eccentric but nevertheless exceedingly rich men plays into that narrative. If she were more interesting on her own, she wouldn’t need these men. She might want them, but she wouldn’t have to be known for them.

  15. Sigh says:

    Oh geez. This guy is a gaslighting creep. He was awful to all of his ex-wives. Come on Amber, remember in situations like this, you are not the exception and almost always the rule and in Elon’s case, that’s a scary place to be.

  16. Kitten says:

    Yeah I don’t get the comments here. Why is it just assumed that she’s a gold digger? She’s an actor who runs in the same circle as a lot wealthy people. She’s certainly not the first actress to date a wealthy guy like Elon nor is she the first actress that Elon has dated. Additionally, it’s been reported that Musk was friends with Depp and Amber for at least a year prior to these two dating.

    I mean, Elon Musk is a brilliant and (IMO) attractive guy..why is it so hard to believe that she would be with him for those reasons and not because he’s a billionaire?

    That being said, I do not think this will end well given Elon’s dating past. But it’s still Amber’s choice to make and no, I don’t think their relationship is automatic “proof” that Amber’s a “gold digger” or whatever.

    • Birdix says:

      he also has a reputation for being controlling and abusive, so the question is why she would gravitate to that after what she’s been through.

      • kate says:

        Unfortunately, many victims repeat ad nauseum the same cycle of violent relationships even after getting out of an abusive relationship. It’s really sad.

      • K says:

        Seconded – but I don’t think it’s unreasonable for people to question her motives (or his, either). I mean, anyone can be abused. It’s not necessary for them to be perfect.

        I do wonder though – why do people say he has that reputation? I read his first wife’s piece, and she makes a compelling case, but she’s a highly intelligent woman so you would expect her to. I don’t think it’s reasonable to take one side’s version of a divorce, and assume it’s the absolute truth. I would imagine he has his own version and it’s likely to be just as unflattering about her. There are things that make all other facts irrelevant (abuse on the level Depp was seemingly capable, and I don’t care what else was happening; alienation of the kids and their other parent on the Kelly Rutherford level, and again, it’s irrelevant what the other side did short of another form of abuse) but I don’t remember any such allegations being leveled at Musk; just that he was dismissive and controlling, after years of super riches, and that he treated his ex disrespectfully. That doesn’t sound admirable but it’s not without possibility that his side would read very differently, and be honest, too.

        If there is more about Musk that I’ve not heard then I understand the claims better. But if the sole evidence is a piece by his ex-wife, not so much.

    • Clare says:


      I agree with you that lots of actors/actresses date within these small circles, and of course any comment about this (and 90% of what we talk about on here) is speculative.

      But working with the ‘evidence’ we DO have, and putting 2 and 2 together – as simplistic as that may be, it appears to many people (including me) that she has a type, and that type is very very rich, with a side of asshole.

      There is no proof, of course – but when has that stopped us (or any other on-the-internet gossipers) from drawing conclusions? We can discuss causation v. correlation all day, but for that we’d need to be discussing actual facts, not celebrity gossip!

      Slightly off topic note: I used to work in a research center with which he is heavily involved. He is brilliant, but also has a reputation for being kind arrogant and obnoxious.

    • Shambles says:

      I definitely don’t think it automatically makes her a gold digger. I do think it’s an indication of some underlying messiness on Amber’s part. I think jumping back into a relationship this soon, with someone who’s rumored to be controlling and dickish, says that Amber needs to be with herself, work on loving herself, and figure out why she gravitates towards these types of relationships. I would think, after everything she’s been through, this would be the time to be single. But who am I to dictate how someone else lives? *shrugs*

      • cathy says:

        Maybe he’s really nice to her and treats her like an equal? I hate the “gold digger” talk. That was started by Johnny Depp’s crew to discredit her and now because she’s dating Musk it’s only because he has money? How can people make this claim?

      • Millie says:

        @Cathy I don’t think he sees her as an equal. His first wife was an equal and beyond and he did her so wrong. If anything, he saw his 2nd wife and Amber as blank slates that he can easily manipulate and control. His first wife wasn’t so easy to mold so he tossed her. I cannot believe how many people on this site excuse what he did to his first wife just because he is brilliant. He might be brilliant but that doesn’t mean he is a great pick.

      • MB says:

        @Millie it also doesnt mean that past behaviours cant be learned from. I have treated exes horribly in the past but I have matured and changed since then and have applied what I have learned to my current relationship.

    • silliness says:

      THIS! 1000000++++

  17. crazydaisy says:

    Amber sure likes her men with money, lots and lots of it, and with that gorgeous face she can snag ’em easy—-but at what cost? I think @Clare hit all the cogent points up above, in comment 14. Yep.

  18. Pandy says:

    Geez, she has a type! Rich, older dudes lollll. For someone who came on the scene proclaiming her bisexuality … that’s taken a back seat. I’m sure it’s L O V E though!!! Laughing at the quote I saw (I think on page six?) that they are looking to start a family. The old bugger already has six kids! He’s got plenty of family. These people all need a slap to the head.

    • Brittney B. says:

      Seriously, Pandy?!

      Bisexuality doesn’t “take a seat” when you find a partner, regardless of that partner’s gender. Her sexuality is part of her identity, and her dating history reflects it pretty clearly. Don’t erase that — and by extension, dismiss every human being whose attractions include men and women — just because you have a problem with her.

      • Pandy says:

        Sorry but I think she used her bisexuality as a publicity tool.

      • sendepause says:

        Especially her long term relationship with Tasya van Ree must have been a publicity stunt .. because genuine relationships between women are highly marketable in Hollywood .. because everyone pays attention to what women are doing and saying and nobody centers the menzzz *side eye* Your biphobia is showing.

      • Lizzy says:

        Amber did come out as gay at th GLADD awards. Yet another thing ppl seem to be willing to forget. She then instructed her publicist to cool it on the LGBT stuff when she got with Depp. That seems the very definition of using her sexuality for attention.

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      LOL, more #shitstraightpeoplesay. I guess Pandy doesn’t get that a bisexual person can be with men and women. Dumb bigot.

  19. Chaine says:

    Lol that they went to Australia, of all places! I hope he checked all corners of the plane for contraband Pistol and Boo before they took off.

    • Felicia says:

      She’s filming there, so I don’t know if “went to Australia” actually fits. He joined her in Australia is probably more accurate.

  20. Heat says:

    Both posts show Amber with a glass of wine in her hand, so I assumed they were posting that in order to quell the pregnancy rumours that have been swirling since Amber’s father talked to the press.

  21. LL says:

    I hope she gets a tesla.. just saying..

  22. Monsy says:

    good for them 🙂

  23. Katrina says:

    Hi, first time commenter here. I’ve read Elon Musk’s first wife’s essay and he comes across as controlling and emotionally abusive.
    I think it is easy to get into a pattern of going from one abusive and controlling man to the next because one’s self esteem and sense of normalcy is so skewed in the early vulnerable stages. When I was Amber’s age, I went from a relationship with a controlling and emotionally abusive man to a relationship with a controlling and physically, emotionally, and sexually abusive man less than a year later. I felt so utterly worthless after the first guy that I was accepting of a lot of red flags early on with the second guy because I didn’t believe I deserved any better. And I have a graduate degree and well paid professional career- it can happen to anyone. What ultimately helped me was taking a long hiatus from relationships and working with a good counselor to get my sense of self worth back. Five years later, I am engaged to a loving and supportive man. But it took time to get my self esteem back.
    If I were Amber’s friend, I would advise her to take some time away from relationships and focus on herself for awhile.

    • Tata says:

      Thanks for this point of view

    • ellieohara says:

      Oh please, were they all rich?

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        Because it’s so likely for everyone these Hollywood people get with to be poor or middle class, and women can clearly prevent men from being abusive by only dating poor and middle class men, right? The female misogynists on this thread are so out of touch. It’s just another way that abusers luck out: There will always be women who are complicit in the MRA agenda because their hatred of their own sex Trumps their hatred of abusive men.

    • Neverwintersand says:

      Thank you for sharing this! You are also completely right, of course. Sadly, many women follow this pattern unknowingly, jumping from one abusive relationship to other.

  24. AlmondJoy says:

    She’s so gorgeous and he has a serious case of douchface

  25. Katherine says:

    I was so NOT ready for all the hate comments on her IG *shudders*

  26. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Amber, girl – you need to run. Damn, she has bad taste in men. Was her taste in women this terrible too? Probably.

    • Lizzy says:

      Um she was arrested for assaulting her wife in public. Amazing how that just got swept right under the rug.

    • naomipaige says:

      Personally, I actually think he’s the one that needs to run!!!

  27. Jenn says:

    I read a scary article by Musks first wife, hope Heard runs.

  28. naomipaige says:

    I’d believe it if it weren’t for seeing her stare directly at the camera every time. . I say it’s only for publicity. She’s at it again.
