During her statement, Carino was asked about an August 2017 text exchange with Heard, who wrote to her, “dealing with the breakup. I hate when things go public. C, I’m so sad.” The agent told the court, “I think he’s referring to breaking up with Elon.” He confirmed that she texted Heard with the caption, “You weren’t in love with him, and you told me a thousand times that you were just filling in the gap.”
He also confirmed that she replied to him, “I know, but I wanted time to cry and recover on my own time.” Carino told the court: “I don’t know if she is referring to Johnny or Elon in that line.”
In another text message exchange, Heard wrote to Carino: “I hate that one more time a man drops me on the spikes alone.” Carino replied, “You could stop that if you stop dating super famous people. You can be with a big man who isn’t famous.”
Earlier this week, in the final days of the trial, Heard’s lawyer read in court a text message that Depp allegedly sent to Carino in August 2016, in which the actor said that his ex was “begging for a total global humiliation” and also referenced his relationship with Musk, dubbing the billionaire “Mollusk”.
