Elon Musk and Amber Heard split up after one year

Looks like Tesla CEO Elon Musk is driving his electric car all the way to Splitsville — he and Amber Heard have reportedly called it quits.

The billionaire tech mogul and his actress girlfriend kept their relationship mostly under wraps for the year they were together, and only went public in April, when both shared a photo on social media of Heard, 31, gazing at the camera next to Musk, who sported a lipstick kiss on his cheek.

“Elon broke up with her. The timing wasn’t good for them,” a source told Us Weekly. “He’s super busy and works all the time. Amber is filming (“Aquaman”) in Australia until October. She’s in no position to settle with him. She feels her career is just starting.”

The pair reportedly met in 2013, after Musk, 46, emailed “Machete Kills” director Robert Rodriguez repeatedly in an attempt to meet Heard. Both Heard and Musk worked on the film, but they did not meet on set.

At the time, Heard was living with Johnny Depp. She married Depp in 2015, but filed for divorce last May, and accused the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star of spousal abuse. Their divorce was finalized in January.

Musk, meanwhile, filed for divorce from wife Talulah Riley in November for a second time. He was previously married to Canadian author Justine Wilson, with whom he shares six sons.

Musk and Heard occasionally shared glimpses of their life together on social media, like in May, when she posted a sweet series of photos of her goofing around with several of Musk’s children in Australia.

The PayPal co-founder posted an Instagram photo of his girlfriend in May on the set of “Aquaman” dressed as her character Mera.
