Billionaire Elon Musk called the Hollywood stars “incredible” on Saturday, a day after jury began hearing defamation suits between actor Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Hard, hoping they would move on.
Mr Musk, who dated the actress while he was married to Mr Depp, tweeted, “I hope they both move on. At their best, they’re all incredible.”
I hope they both move forward. At their best, they are each incredible.

It comes after Mr Depp appeared in court on Wednesday with a text sent to his former talent agent, Christian Carino, where he spoke about the alleged relationship between Mrs Hard and Tesla and the CEO of SpaceX.
“Come see me face to face … I’ll show him something he’s never seen before …” the actor said in a text message read out to judges in court on Wednesday.
Miss Hard, who was married to Mr Depp from 2015 to 2017, received a restraining order in May 2016 citing domestic violence.
Depp sued Miss Hard, 56, in an op-ed case she wrote for a U.S. daily in December 2018, in which she described herself as a “public figure representing domestic violence.”
Mr Depp is seeking 50 million in damages from his ex-wife.
The actor said he took legal action because he needed to resolve “six years of reluctance, which I have been carrying behind me”.
Hard, 36, has sued for 100 100 million, claiming he suffered “a lot of physical violence and abuse” at his hands.
Lawyers for both sides gave their concluding arguments Friday after a six-week flurry of mutual allegations of domestic violence between the couple.
Both sides have claimed the loss of their Hollywood careers.
Dozens of witnesses, including bodyguards, Hollywood executives, agents, entertainment industry experts, psychiatrists, doctors, friends and relatives, testified during the trial.
