Amber Heard. Right: Elon Musk.

Potential Twitter owner Elon Musk came up at the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard defamation trial on Wednesday, where the court heard text messages and emails about Heard's rebound fling with him.

The details emerged during testimony from Christian Carino, who is Depp and Heard's former agent (and Lady Gaga's ex-fiancé).

In a pre-taped deposition on Wednesday, Carino explained how Heard "spent time" with Musk after she and Depp ended their marriage, although she was still trying to rekindle things with Depp at the time.

"Dealing with breakup. Hate when things go public. See I’m so sad," she texted Carino in August 2017. Carino testified that Heard was referring to Musk.

He replied with: “You weren’t in love with him. And you told me a thousand times you were just filling space - I’m saying, why would you be sad if you weren’t in love with him to begin with."

Heard responded: “I know, but I wanted time to grieve and recover in my own time."

She added: "I hate that yet again a man lets me fall on the spikes by myself."

Carino then called her out for dating famous people.

"You could avoid all this if you stopped dating uber-famous people. You can be with a big man who isn’t famous."

Depp and Heard were married in 2015 and broke up the following year, after a tumultuous marriage in which they both say they were abused.

Musk and Heard began dating shortly after that marriage ended.

Though the relationship was short-lived, the split was also made public, which explains why Heard was complaining about the attention.

Depp and Heard are suing each other for defamation in Virginia. Depp claims that Heard smeared him and hurt his career with a 2018 Washington Post op-ed, in which she claimed to be a victim of abuse. She did not name him in the suit.

Heard is counter-suing Depp for $100 million - double the $50 million that he is seeking.

Musk was listed as a potential witness in the case, but he is not expected to make an appearance.
