In yet another twist, a concierge has claimed via written witness statement in court that Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk regularly visited Amber Heard at her ex-husband and Hollywood actor Johnny Depp's Los Angeles penthouse while they were still together, the media reported.
A written statement from Alejandro Romero, a concierge at the building Depp and Heard were living in, alleged that the Tesla founder "frequently visited the 'Aquaman' star late at night whenever Depp wasn't home."

"From March 2015 onwards, Ms Heard was visited regularly late at night, at around 11pm to midnight, by Mr Elon Musk. For his initial visits, I would receive a call from Ms Heard who would tell me to give Mr Musk access to the garage for the building and then send him up to the penthouse," the statement alleged.
Musk was yet to respond to this claim.
The statement was written in support of Johnny's libel action against News Group Newspapers for describing him as a "wife beater," which he denies.
