Back in September, several media outlets reported that Amber Heard was essentially homeless following her disastrous split from Johnny Depp.
That’s probably an exaggeration, but it seems that Heard’s financial situation was indeed pretty dire in the wake of her divorce.
Fortunately, if the latest rumors about her love life are true, we imagine she’s not stressing too much about money these days.
According to the Daily Mail, Heard and Tesla/Space-X billionaire Elon Musk are an item.
“She was telling friends over Christmas how smitten she is with Elon,” one insider tells the tabloid.
“They are already planning a lot of adventures together and she’s relieved she can move on with her life,” the source added.
“It’s an exciting new chapter for both of them.”
Yeah, we imagine dating a billionaire tech genius makes for a pretty exciting chapter.
When most people say they’re planning an adventure, they mean they’re thinking of taking a road trip next summer.
When Elon Musk says it, he might actually be talking about going to the moon.
Anyway, the relationship couldn’t come at a better time for Amber Heard who’s coming off a very 2016 2016.
Her high-profile divorce from Johnny Depp was one of the ugliest celebrity splits in recent memory, and it doesn’t look like the battle is over quite yet.
Though Amber and Johnny reached a settlement back in August, the matter wound up back in court following a bizarre turn of events.
Amber announced plans to donate her settlement cash to charity.
When Johnny’s offered to write checks directly to the organizations of her choice, she claimed that it was a scheme to secure a tax write-off, and now the entire $7 million is still in limbo.
Of course, that’s chump change to Musk, who’s reportedly been pursuing Heard (undeterred by the fact that she was married) since 2013.
Both parties appeared in the film Machete Kills around that time, but they didn’t share a scene or meet on set.
Musk began emailing director Robert Rodriguez, claiming that he was “intrigued” by Heard, and asking him to set up a date.
Amber reportedly agreed to a casual, platonic dinner, but then stood the mogul up.
But we guess it all worked out in the end.
Things tend to work out in your favor when you have a few billion in the bank.
