Amber Heard’s Twitter Account Deactivated After Ex-Elon Musk Takes Over

Amber Heard and Elon Musk started dating in May 2016 and parted ways in 2017.

Amber Heard Twitter account has been deactivated just after her ex Elon Musk takes over the social media company. Though the exact timing is unclear, multiple outlets noted that on Thursday that Heard’s Twitter account, @realamberheard, is deactivated. A screen on the page now reads “This account doesn’t exist.”

Heard still has an Instagram account with 5.3 million followers, where her most recent post is her June 1 statement after the verdict in her Virginia defamation trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp. Musk, who previously dated Heard after her split from Depp, recently bought Twitter and became its CEO. Shortly before the takeover was finalized, the billionaire issued a public letter to advertisers, assuring them he didn’t want the platform to “become a free-for-all hellscape, where anything can be said with no consequences!”

Meanwhile, a representative for Musk previously said he and Heard, who’d broken up by August 2017, “didn’t start seeing each other until May 2016, and even then it was infrequent. Their relationship didn’t become romantic until some time later.” Over a year after the breakup, Heard told The Hollywood Reporter in December 2018, “Elon and I had a beautiful relationship, and we have a beautiful friendship now, one that was based on our core values.”

The actress added, “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.” Amber Heard vs Johnny Depp trial’s verdict was handed down on June 1, with a seven-person jury siding mostly with Depp finding that Heard defamed him in her 2018 op-ed about domestic abuse, though she didn’t mention him by name in the article.

Depp was awarded more than $10 million in damages, while Heard won one of her three defamation counterclaims and was awarded $2 million in damages. They are now both appealing the verdicts. Days before the verdict, Musk weighed in on the court proceedings, which were live-televised. He tweeted at the time, “I hope they both move on. At their best, they are each incredible.”
