Amber Heard, the Hollywood actress known for her roles in “Aquaman” and “Justice League,” recently found herself thrust into the public eye, not for her acting prowess, but due to a rather personal and unexpected moment involving her former flame, Elon Musk, the tech billionaire extraordinaire.
What started as a seemingly innocent tweet by Musk has now become a subject of controversy as Heard contends that she did not give her consent for the public unveiling of a private cosplay photo.
In a recent revelation, a source close to the situation disclosed that Amber Heard was taken aback when Elon Musk decided to share an intimate picture of her donning a cosplay costume.
The actress had every intention of keeping this image well within the confines of her private life. The source went on to assert that Heard “did not give permission to Elon to use the photo” and that it was meant to remain confidential.
The photograph in question featured Amber Heard in an elaborate cosplay outfit, depicting the character Mercy from the popular video game “Overwatch.” Elon Musk posted this image on his social media platform, Twitter, as part of his effort to validate a story from Walter Isaacson’s latest biography about him. This gesture did not sit well with Heard, who felt disheartened, especially considering her previous cooperation with Elon’s requests for interviews with the author. According to the source, Amber Had “did … out of respect for Elon.”
Isaacson’s biography, titled “Elon Musk,” delved into the intriguing details of the couple’s relationship. It recounted how the “Aquaman” star, then 37 years old, had embarked on a two-month-long quest to procure and create a head-to-toe costume to emulate the blonde support hero, Mercy, as per Elon’s suggestion. The journalist’s narrative painted a vivid picture of Heard’s dedication to the endeavor, aiming to please her Tesla co-founder boyfriend.
Elon Musk’s subsequent sharing of the image on social media came with a caption that read, “She did dress up as Mercy. It was awesome.” The photograph, seemingly taken in a domestic setting with a cellphone, revealed Amber Heard in a form-fitting latex bodysuit that accentuated her cleavage, complete with angelic wings and a golden halo headpiece.
The biography by Walter Isaacson also delved into the broader dynamics of Elon Musk’s personal relationships. Notably, it featured insights from Kimbal Musk, Elon’s brother, and his friends, who expressed strong negative sentiments towards Amber Heard. Kimbal Musk, in particular, expressed a deep aversion towards her, a sentiment eclipsing even their previous disapproval of Elon’s first wife, Justine Wilson. Discussing Elon’s romantic involvements, Kimbal remarked, “It’s really sad that he falls in love with these people who are really mean to him. They’re beautiful, no question, but they have a very dark side, and Elon knows they are toxic.”
Adding to the complexity of the situation, Elon Musk’s subsequent relationship with Grimes, a Canadian musician, also made an appearance in the biography. Grimes, who dated Musk after Heard, characterized the “Justice League” actress as “chaotic evil.” Furthermore, she disclosed a distressing incident where Elon allegedly shared a photo of her undergoing a C-section with their close relatives, including her father and brothers.
The biography also detailed the tumultuous aftermath of Elon and Amber’s final separation in February 2018, describing it as the “most hellacious period” in Musk’s life.
Despite the criticism and controversy surrounding her, Amber Heard had some positive words for the enigmatic entrepreneur. She confided in Isaacson, saying, “I love him very much. Elon loves fire, and sometimes it burns him.”
In conclusion, the unauthorized sharing of a private cosplay photo by Elon Musk has rekindled interest in the relationship between the tech mogul and Amber Heard, shedding light on their complex dynamics and the reactions of those around them. As the public awaits further responses from the involved parties, this incident serves as a stark reminder of the challenges faced by celebrities when trying to maintain their privacy in the age of social media and instant sharing.
