The defamation trial of Johnny Depp against Amber Heard now involves the richest man in the world, as Heard’s romance with billionaire Elon Musk was brought to the forefront on Wednesday by talent agent Christian Carino.

Carino, who used to represent both Heard and Depp in the past, detailed some text messages sent between him and Heard regarding the subject of Elon Musk, who Heard reportedly had a romance with while attempting to get Depp back, according to the Daily Beast.

Carino admitted that he did not know specifically if the two were dating at the time, but that “they had definitely spent time together,” even as Carino helped plan a reconciliation between both Depp and Heard in San Francisco, the Independent reported.

When Musk broke up with Heard, she had complained to Carino through text messages about the break-up and how it appeared to go public, to which Carino had reminded her that she didn’t really love Musk during their time together.

“You weren’t in love with him and you told me a thousand times you were just filling space,” Carino had said.

When asked whether he knew about the allegations of abuse that the two had suffered during the relationship, Carino said that he did not. He did suggest to the two to get a marriage counselor to help “mediate” things between them, but he testified that he was unaware of any abuse happening in the relationship.

Carino, previously in the public eye for being Lady Gaga’s former fiance, appeared to believe that Depp had lost out a role in the future sequel of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise due to the allegations made by Heard against Depp.

“My opinion is that Amber’s accusations would have had the most dramatic impact on his off-screen reputation. I’m not talking about any one specific accusation,” Carino said.

The defamation trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard seeks to find a judgment as to whether or not Depp’s career was hurt by the domestic violence allegations Heard had made against Depp, who has claimed over and over to have been the real victim of domestic abuse during their marriage.
