In the texts that were read out in court, Heard admitted to not being in love with Musk, to begin with.
The Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial has been going on for about two weeks now and there have been a lot of revelations. Their rocky relationship has been rehashed in court as the two sides continue to present their own versions of events that took place.
Last week, Depp's representatives revealed evidence that Heard supposedly cheated on her then-husband with Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, as well as actor James Franco. Videos of Heard with Musk and Franco in the elevator were shown in the court. The same assertion that he was being cheated on was also made by Depp during his libel case against The Sun in London.
Musk had offered Heard round-the-clock security at the time news of her alleged abuse at the hands of Depp was coming to light. "The offer would stand, even if you never wanted to see me again... anyway, sorry for being an idiot," he had messaged her at the time. "The radio silence hurts a lot. It only matters because I really like you." Now, Christian Carino, Heard's former agent has revealed how she really felt about the relationship in a pre-recorded court deposition. Carino is a talent agent who had represented both Heard and Depp in the past for Creative Artists Agency.

Text message exchanges between the two were read out in court. Musk and Heard started dating after both of their divorces were finalized. They had an on-and-off relationship for two years before calling things off. When they broke up in 2017, Heard had confided in Carino who asked her, why she was "sad" if she wasn't "in love with him to begin with." Depp's lawyers read out then that Heard was "just filling space" with Musk after she split up with Depp, as per PEOPLE.

In 2018, Heard had said of her relationship with Musk stating: "Elon and I had a beautiful relationship, and we have a beautiful friendship now, one that was based on our core values. Intellectual curiosity, ideas, and conversation, a shared love for science. We just bonded on a lot of things that speak to who I am on the inside. I have so much respect for him." After her breakup, however, she told Carino, "I hate that yet again a man lets me fall on the spikes by myself. ... Meaning, they are mad at me for leaving them and put things like this out there."

Carino also admitted that Heard had asked him to set up a meeting with Depp after filing for divorce and getting a restraining order. She had also asked Carino to deliver letters to Depp and shared that she missed him as well. "I don't know how or where to start. There's no way to begin. ... Finally I am single, clear in my heart and mind," she had texted Carino. "I just want him to know I love him and that I am sorry."
