Heard is currently embroiled in a $50 million defamation trial with her ex-husband Johnny Depp, who claims she wrecked his career and reputation by alleging to be a domestic abuse survivor in a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post. The Aquaman star, meanwhile, is countersuing for $100 million and cited several occasions on which she claims Depp assaulted her.

Among the accusations that the embattled exes have hurled at each other are Depp's claims that Heard cheated on him with SpaceX founder Musk, who she dated publicly in the months following their split.

On Wednesday, forensic psychologist Dr. Dawn Hughes shed new light on Heard and Musk's romance, suggesting that her heart was never really in the relationship, Insider reports.

Dr. Hughes was called to the witness stand by Heard's lawyers, where she told the court that her evaluation of the actor led her to believe she had been the victim of intimate partner abuse.

Later on during cross-examination by Depp's team, notes from Heard's 29 hours evaluation with Dr. Hughes were presented to the court. One addressed Heard and Musk's relationship, explaining how it started after the two met at the 2016 Met Ball which took place just weeks after she and Depp decided to separate.

"I was heartbroken. My soul was dead. Felt nothing then," Heard told Dr. Hughes about her romance with Musk, per the notes. She went on to tell the psychologist that they called it quits in March 2018.

This is not the first time it has been implied that Heard used the Tesla boss as a placeholder boyfriend.

Several days ago, jurors were shown a text exchange between the actor and her former agent, Cristian Carino, in which they openly discussed the fact that she never loved Musk.

"You weren't in love with him and you told me a thousand times you were just filling space," Carino texted Heard. She responded: "I know, but I wanted time to grieve and recover in my own time."
