Amber Heard on meeting 'real gentleman' Elon Musk at Met Gala

FAIRFAX, Va. — Amber Heard testified Monday about meeting “real gentleman” Elon Musk at the 2016 Met Gala, where she appeared solo after being “stood up” by Johnny Depp.

Heard, 36, said she and Depp, 58, were supposed to attend the star-studded event together as designer Ralph Lauren’s guests, but her then-husband was a no-show following a raucous fight on her 30th birthday.

“He effectively stood me up,” she told the jury.

While waiting to hit the red carpet, Heard said, she found herself standing next to the billionaire founder of Tesla and SpaceX — but didn’t recognize him at first.

“[Musk] was there with his mother,” Heard said. “He reminded me we had met before … He seemed like a real gentleman. He was really nice.”

Heard said she and Musk, 50, eventually “became friends.”

The testimony about the world’s wealthiest man came as Heard got back on the witness stand in Fairfax, Virginia, for her third day of testimony in Depp’s bombshell $50 million defamation lawsuit.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor previously accused Heard of cheating on him with Musk during their brief marriage. It has also been claimed that Heard and the tech mogul once had a threesome with model Cara Delevingne, which Musk denies.

Musk and Heard first met on the set of the 2013 film “Machete Kills,” in which she starred and he had a cameo.

The billionaire has denied being romantically involved with Heard while she was married. He said the two only started dating after her divorce from Depp and his split from his then-wife Talulah Riley.

Heard and Musk went on to have an on-again, off-again relationship that lasted the better part of two years, coming to an end in 2018.

Testimony last month revealed that Heard’s former agent texted her in 2017, saying that the “Aquaman” actress was not in love with Musk and dated him because she was “just filling space.”

While Musk was widely expected to take the stand during the defamation trial in Virginia, The Post exclusively reported in late April he will not be testifying.
