Amber Heard’s Twitter account disappears after ex Elon Musk’s takeover

Amber Heard was in a relationship with Elon Musk between 2016 and 2018, after her divorce from actor Johnny Depp

Amber Heard's Twitter account has disappeared days after her ex Elon Musk bought the platform for $44 billion. 

This comes amidst a number of Hollywood celebrities deleting their accounts after Musk's takeover of the social media platform, New York Post reported on Thursday.

The disappearance of Heard's account was first noticed by YouTuber Matthew Lewis (also known as That Umbrella Guy), who tweeted on Wednesday: "Amber Heard has deleted her Twitter."

Her handle @realAmberHeard was unable to be found as of Thursday.

Amber Heard was in a relationship with Elon Musk between 2016 and 2018 after her divorce from actor Johnny Depp. 

Earlier this year, she lost a defamation case against the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor and was ordered by court to pay him $10.35 million.

While some social media watchdogs suspect she might have wanted a break from the never-ending backlash following her public courtroom standoff against her ex-husband Johnny Depp, others questioned if it had anything to do with Musk.

The two first met on the set of “Machete Kills” in 2013, which Heard starred in and Musk made a cameo.


At the time Musk was with his then-wife Talulah Riley and Heard with then-husband Depp.

It was not until 2016 that Musk began courting Heard, but the newfound love did not come without turmoil. In 2017, they split for the first time — which Musk claimed was “amicable” — then reunited, then split again for good.

But the breakup did not stop Musk from popping up in Heard's life — or conversations.

In the bombshell defamation trial between Heard and Depp, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor accused his ex of cheating on him with Musk before their divorce was finalized.

While the Tesla CEO denied the claims, he weighed in on the trial, saying both are “incredible” when they are “at their best.”

But now that Heard's Twitter account has mysteriously disappeared, speculators wonder if the seemingly amicable relationship might have turned sour, although it is unclear.

Meanwhile, Musk's social media acquisition has been nothing but chaos, as more stars quit the platform after the app's new owner demanded $8 to keep their blue check marks.

Earlier this week, Musk bit back at the critics who flamed him for charging the monthly fee for the verified status, but the tech mogul will not budge on his decision — which is $12 less than his original subscription plan.

Amber Heard has become the latest celebrity to leave the platform in the past week. The others include Toni Braxton, Shonda Rhimes and Mick Foley, according to NBC News.
