Elon Musk ‘is still very fascinated’ by Amber Heard, ‘they’re getting more serious’

"Rough Night" New York Premiere

Amber Heard and Elon Musk are still happening. He was in Australia with her as she worked on Justice League/Aquaman stuff, and now they’re in LA. He has a home in LA and they’ve been getting pap’d around town, looking coupled-up and loved-up. They’re also all over each other’s social media, not just with photos but with retweets as well. Elon posted a promotional pic of Amber in her Aquaman costume, and Amber has been retweeting Elon constantly. They are “the real deal” and this isn’t just some fling. People Magazine’s sources basically confirm that – Elon and Amber are more and more serious by the day.

After spending some family time with Elon Musk in his native Australia, Amber Heard and the tech mogul were spotted together back in Los Angeles over the weekend. The couple, who had spent time together Down Under last month while Heard, 31, filmed Aquaman, had lunch at Sweet Butter in Los Angeles on Friday. “They were very casual and dined in,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE. “Elon had his arm around Amber as they waited in line.”

The eyewitness adds, “They ordered at the counter and sat down outside to wait for their salads. Elon paid and was pretty chatty. It was his first time at the restaurant so he asked questions about the menu. They were both very friendly and seemed happy.”

“They are getting more serious,” says a source close to the couple. “It’s definitely not a casual relationship. That’s not Elon. He doesn’t do anything casually.”

The source confirms that the Tesla founder “isn’t dating anyone else” and “is still very fascinated by Amber and loves her company. He seems very happy with her. She is spending a lot of time with his kids.”

I find this interesting: Elon is “still very fascinated by Amber…” Like, is that the basis for the healthiest relationship, being “fascinated” by someone? I’m really asking. I think Elon probably tends towards obsessive, almost controlling love. I think Amber is one of those women who – for better or for worse – attracts men who love to chase her. What happens when she’s not “fascinating” though? When she’s just a normal woman who gets tired and wears grungy sweatpants and wants to watch bad reality shows and clip her toenails?

    He’s South African…..NOT Australian….get your billionaires right, People Mag!!

    • Emma33 says:

      hahaha….I am Australian and I literally said “Elon Musk is Australian??!l” out loud to an empty room when I read that!

  2. MissAmanda says:

    EXACTLY. Exactly what Kaiser said about that word ‘fascinated’. She’s not a person, a partner, a friend to him…she’s an object for him to look at and study and be entertained by in between trying to get to Mars and saving the world or whatever he’s trying to do.

    • denisemich says:

      I agree with your statement. I also think that unfortunately that is Amber’s brand .

      His mother who is a well known nutritionist and model should have taught him women can be your equal. This woman Amber Heard probably is not his though.

    • Perpetua says:

      Yes to all this! I read that in an email he wrote to a friend, he said about Amber “Allegedly, she is a fan of George Orwell and Ayn Rand … most unusual.” I couldn’t help but laugh when I read it, as it seems Mr. Musk has never been to a liberal arts college campus before. Or really any college campus on the east coast for that matter 😂

  3. Alex says:

    He fascinated in her and she’s fascinated by his wallet. Sounds like a win win

  4. cindy says:

    yeah, the “fascinating” thing may not bod well. It makes it sound like his girlfriends are there for his amusement. I do hope that Depp is eating his heart out though…

  5. Esmom says:

    I know he’s gotta be extremely high maintenance but I have always found him strangely compelling and hot. So I can see why she’d be attracted to him. Somehow I can’t see this going the distance, though.

  6. Nameless says:

    I think he’s a very interesting person and certainly one of our most prolific contemporary forward thinkers.

    But we had a discussion on here last time about how he badly treats his employees at SpaceX, and his controlling, patriarchal behavior in his first marriage. Not to mention his weird two marriages to #2. These are huge red flags! I wonder if he is the charming type at the outset who gradually reveals his shitty true nature as he grows more comfortable in the relationship.

    Either way, I hope she has some fun after her disastrous marriage and that nothing bad comes out of this.

  7. Good for them says:

    I think that they look cute together, they are supportive of each other ( he went to Australia a couple of times, she came back to LA to see him and went to a spaceX party), he hangs out with her friends too, so I think that they have a healthy relationship.
    She looks great, healthy and working, after everything with Johnny debt this is great news.

  8. six says:

    A source close to Musk also mentioned that Musk liked Heard’s ‘edginess’ back in April, after they came out as a couple. I caught my attention because it sounded like an echo of JD who called her ‘sharp as a tack’ after they got engaged in 2014. Men may praise a woman’s ‘sharpness’ and ‘edginess’ when they are in love. But if they are macho and used to getting their way, that same sharpness and edginess could be exactly what they do not like about her at a later stage

    Hope this pisses off Johnny to no end! #Deserved

    • isabelle says:

      Elon has some abusive tendencies as well according to his ex wife. Others have said he is controlling. Amber has horrible tastes in men the fact she is picking these cads says she isn’t completely right in the head either. Pissing him off? More like Amber may be shooting her ownself in the foot.

    • ahaha says:

      I think he’s pissed off, didn’t you see that the next day to this story in People his PR sent pictures of his vacations in Tahiti and how “smily” he is?. Lainey laughed at him, because the press release with the pics talked about Johnny being involved “sustainable” environmental, which is ridiculous especially as a way to compete with Elon Musk who is like the God of sustainable technologies

  10. hmm says:

    I have no idea how is he in love. I remember the blog from his first wife about how he pulled all the stops at the beginning. Now we see how he travels to Australia to see her. He also called the radio streaming on his cars “Tesla Heard” and you could see a little video at Amber’s instagram of her goofying with Olivia Munn and Elon Musk behind her with his arm over her seat and laughing at her play. It makes me wonder if this is just normal Elon Musk at the beginning of any relationship and his little inner monster will be released in the future once he feels she’s a sure thing? Or this Elon Musk having a “depp phase” because she also pulled out all this weird side from Johnny Depp, where it seems he went gaga for her and proposed to her and walked red carpets, like if all her lovers grow obsessed with her? Depp ended getting crazy once he understand he couldn’t control her despite marrying her. Fingers crossed so the end with Elon will be different

  11. Tiffany says:

    Isn’t this how it always starts with his relationships. Fascinating to the point of obsessive. Then he loses interest and moves on to the next project. His ex wife’s interview was a eye opener.

  12. The Voice says:

    His MO seems pretty transparent yet the public keeps giving him a pass. I guess it’s more okay when you’re a billionaire and a forward thinker. I don’t know why more people can’t separate the two. He can be a brilliant business man but a complete jerk.

    I interviewed at Tesla and spoke to a guy who works with Elon. He kept saying “Elon wants X and Elon wants Y.” I asked him what the goals of the project were and what success looks like for customers. Elon can certainly weigh in with his opinion but in the end, he’s just one person. Sounds like a bad situation to be in, honestly. I wouldn’t want to work for him.

  13. Shirurusu says:

    From what I’ve read about him he seems like a workaholic playboy who at least according to his ex wife love bombs and pursues women until they fall in line, then he ignores them. He didn’t deal with his sons death at ten weeks and he didn’t deal with his father being a total horror when he grew up, and I think he was severely bullied at school when he was younger. Kudos to him for making something of himself out of a harsh start but he comes across as emotionally closed off to me, and not exactly a prince charming for any woman to be with. I wish Amber well, I felt really sorry for her with the sh-t storm she went through with Johnny Depp, and after the divorce also in the media. Johnny acted like a total ass.

    • LAK says:

      Being emotionally closed off………..

      I’m obsessed with his body language with his different women. His body language in photos was ice cold with wife no 1 as well as no 2.

      I wasn’t surprised to read no 1′s account of their relationship after seeing their body language, but i was surprised at the body language with no 2 given how quickly they married. Twice!

      He seems better with Amber. I’d even go as far as say he this might be the first genuine emotionally connected relationship he has experienced because his body language towards Amber is so much better than with either wife no 1 or no 2. Don’t think he is the gushing type, but in his own limited way, i’m saying he appears to feel more for Amber than he did the wives going by evidence of body language.

    • isabelle says:

      Which are abuser tactics. Elon while fascinating and intelligent seems like an as* when it comes to women.

  14. Joni says:

    I really hope they last so Johnny can seethe.

  15. HoustonGrl says:

    There is something “off” here. Can’t put my finger on it.

  16. Rae says:

    I’ve joined the “weirdly fascinated by Elon” group.

    They seem happy. If they’re both getting what they need out of it, I hope it lasts.

  17. Jeesie says:

    I think people give him a hard time in regards to his marriages honestly. His first marriage ended badly, but they lost a child and dealt with it very differently. That’ll destroy any marriage eventually. She wanted him to grieve like her, he was devastated but able to move on. He’s not a monster for not wanting to conform to her expectations of what losing a child looks like, and having been through it myself, it’s definitely possibly for the more publically grieving parent to be ‘emotionally manipulative’. My ex wasn’t going to be happy until I was a broken mess like him.

    Everything else she talked about was honestly more about her. She lost sight of who she was and had a whole crisis over it, and Elon being more of a ‘if you want something then do it’ kind of person had no time for the long navel gazing part of that. Just very different, difficult in their own ways, people.

    He’s still close with his second ex and was supportive of all her projects throughout their marriages and after (apart from acting she’s directed two films, written a book and founded her own start-up). He even seems friendly enough with his first ex these days. I’m sure he’s hard to live with, frankly no one who works 80-100 hours a week isn’t, but nothing suggests he’s abusive at all.

  18. Nimbolicious says:

    Based on the amount of time I spend in sweats watching shitty TV and doing whatever is as equally unsexy as toenail clipping, I’m sure I fall into the least-fascinating category of human beings. Which is fine by me — I think it would be exhausting to have to suit up and show up for a daily display of personal excellence that then has to be documented on every social media platform. Ugh!

  19. Blackbetty says:

    I find him fascinating as well.

  20. PennyLane says:

    “What happens when she’s not “fascinating” though? When she’s just a normal woman who gets tired and wears grungy sweatpants and wants to watch bad reality shows and clip her toenails?”

    Yes, that would be Divorce #4.
