Elon Musk leaves the Phillip Burton Federal Building on January 24, 2023 in San Francisco, California. Amber Heard at the Royal Courts of Justice, the Strand on July 28, 2020 in London, England.

Elon Musk is opening up about his past relationship with Amber Heard. The Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder reflected on his yearlong on-and-off romance with the Aquaman actress in his new biography written by Walter Isaacson. As for how Elon, 52, summed up their relationship: “It was brutal,” People reports.

Though Musk first met Heard after seeing her in 2013’s Machete Kills, the book said that their romance didn’t take off until four years later, after she filed for divorce from Johnny Depp. According to the book, their early dates mostly revolved around work. Amber would fly out to the Tesla factory in California to surprise him on his birthday, and Elon would visit her on the Australian set of Aquaman. Amber joked in the biography that she could be called a “geek for someone who can also be called a hot chick.” As noted by Isaacson, the 37-year-old actress once spent “two months designing and commissioning a head-to-toe costume so she could role-play” for Elon after he told her that she reminded him of his favorite video game character, Mercy from Overwatch.

Elon Is A Fool For Love

However, Elon’s brother, Kimbal Musk, wasn’t a fan of their relationship. Kimbal described Amber as “toxic” and “a nightmare” in the biography, adding that Elon tends to fall for people who are “beautiful, no question, but they have a very dark side.” Elon responded, “Because I’m just a fool for love. I am often a fool, but especially for love.” After he and Amber called it quits for good in 2017, the tech mogul recalled enduring “18 months of unrelenting insanity” that was “mind-bogglingly painful.” Despite their relationship not working out, the former couple are on good terms. Amber said in the biography, “I love him very much. Elon loves fire, and sometimes it burns him.”

In the past, Elon publicly shared kind words about his ex following their split. “Although Amber and I did break up, we are still friends, remain close and love one another,” he previously commented on her Instagram post from August 2017. “Long distance relationships when both partners have intense work obligations are always difficult, but who knows what the future holds.” Last year, he offered his support for Amber after she was found liable for defaming her ex-husband in a jury trial in Virginia. “I hope they both move on,” he wrote on X. “At their best, they are each incredible.”

The Most Unexpected Celebrity Match-Ups

Hollywood tends to date within the same pool. Though some couples have got their start from working together on the same set, others have met each other at events. Age is not a factor for celebrities looking for love, as many have dated people over ten years older or younger than them. Some couples are still together, but for the really bizarre ones, their romances fizzled out before we could come up with a cute ship name (like the iconic Bennifer). The love life of the rich, famous, and good-looking spark interest in online discourse. Rumors of cheating and breakups hit social media on a daily basis, but unless the celebrities themselves clear the air, it is all hearsay.

Most celebrity divorces have filed documents citing “irreconcilable differences,” which is a term used as a catch-all when the parties involved want to keep the specific reasons under wraps. For example, in Britney Spears and Sam Asghari’s divorce, they cited irreconcilable differences despite rumors of Britney cheating on her husband with “at least one” male staff member.

Some of our favorite couples are the ones who have withstood the test of time, while some of the biggest breakup news of the year was of couples we thought were going the distance. Sophia Vergara and Joe Manganiello and Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn were just two couples who were together what fans thought were “couple goals. A-listers tend to keep their relationships under wraps, but there is no shortage of dating shows to feed our needs for front-row drama.

As we’ve seen with stars whose every move is watched, their relationships have been judged every step of the way, like Kanye West and his new wife, Bianca Censori. Other couples have no photos posted together on their social media apps, so as to not further fuel media coverage. That doesn’t stop the paparazzi or fans from snapping pics any chance they get, though.

Take a look below to see which celebrities we think are the most random match-ups.

My friends loved hanging out with him. I loved hanging out with him. It was a pretty short-lived romance.” The rapper opened up about the relationship in his 2020 book Hustle Harder, Harder Smarter, revealing he met Handler while appearing on her show and immediately began pursuing her.
