The ongoing libel case that continues to explore whether or not Johnny Depp is a "wife beater" - as he was referred to a newspaper - also continues to inadvertently explore whether or not Elon Musk had an affair with Johnny Depp's then wife, Amber Heard. The court case continues to yield wonderful revelations.
The latest is that the amorphous Musk apparently wanted to challenge Depp to a cage fight at one point. “If Johnny wants a cage fight, just let me know,” Musk said told the New York Times this weekend, while being interviewed about his love life and the ongoing case.
The (more than likely idle) threat was brought on after the NY Times read back text messages to Musk where Depp reportedly referred to Musk as "Mollusk" and threatened to cut off the Tesla CEO's genitals. To up the ante in the case, there have also been rumors circulating that Musk had a threesome with Heard and her friend Cara Delevingne in Depp's house.
Musk continues to deny that it ever happened. “We did not have the threesome, you know. So I think people think these things are generally more salacious than they are,” he told the Times.
Musk insists his relationship with Heard didn't start until she split from Depp. He also reportedly offered Heard security officers that would protect her after she told Musk she wanted to get a restraining order against Depp.
“For [Heard and Depp], I would just recommend that they bury the hatchet and move on,” Musk said, trying to move on from the situation and focus on his current relationship. The story then went on to talk about Musk's relationship with Grimes, who it refers to as "a hybrid of a fairy, a witch and a cyborg", making her "pretty much Mr. Musk's dream girl".
