Amber Heard, 31, and Elon Musk, 46, have called it quits after nearly a year of dating.


Heard broke her silence on the matter Tuesday in an Instagram post. “Being in the public eye means having to explain yourself to so many people, so much of the time. In this case, I’d like to remain more quiet,” she began. “Although we have broken up, Elon and I care deeply for one another and remain close. Thank you for the continued support, respect, and privacy during these difficult, very human times.”

For his part, Musk added, “Btw, just to clear up some of the press storm this weekend, although Amber and I did break up, we are still friends, remain close and love one another. Long distance relationship when both partners have intense work obligations are always difficult, but who knows what the future holds.”

While the actress and the billionaire dated for almost a year, they didn’t announce the relationship publicly until about three months ago, in another Insta post. Musk shared a photo of himself and Heard at dinner, Musk sporting a lipstick kiss on his cheek.

Heard was previously married to Johnny Depp for 15 months, but filed for divorce last May among allegations of domestic violence. Musk, the CEO of Tesla, shares five sons (GriffinXavierDamianSaxon, and Kai) with first wife Justine Musk. He has also married and divorced his second wife, Talulah Riley, twice.
