Elon Musk chipped in for Amber Heard’ s ACLU donation: Depp trial testimony

1651175775 Elon Musk chipped in for Amber Heard s ACLU donation


Billionaire Elon Musk appears to have chipped in at least $500,000 to ex-girlfriend Amber Heard’s donation to the American Civil Liberties Union, the organization’s general counsel testified Thursday.

Terence Dougherty said Heard never made good on her $3.5 million pledged to the group, paying only $350,000, according to the ACLU exec’s taped deposition played during Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against his ex-wife.

The rest of the $1.3 million the ACLU eventually came from Depp, who forked over $100,000, and a donor Dougherty believes was Musk.

That money included a $500,000 donation from a fund at Vanguard and $350,000 from a Fidelity fund, Dougherty testified.

He said he believed at least the $500,000 came from the Tesla CEO, he said in a pre-taped deposition in the case taken in December and aired Thursday.

“Yes, he must have,” Dougherty said under questioning by Depp’s lawyer, referring to Musk.

“Either that means a separate donor-advised fund he has at Fidelity or from — Fidelity, you know, direct investment accounts he has at Fidelity,” he said. “I’m assuming the former, but I don’t know.”

Musk, the world’s wealthiest man, dated Heard after her 2016 split from Depp.

A letter to Heard regarding her $350,000 donation was provided during the trial.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor is now suing heard for defamation and demanding $50 million in damages, with the trial now in its 11th day in a Fairfax, Virginia, courtroom.

Musk and actor James Franco were expected to be on the witness list, but The Post confirmed this week that neither will take the stand.
