Published this Tuesday, September 12, the biography of Elon Musk by Walter Isaacson reveals that those close to Elon Musk had a visceral hatred for Amber Heard, because of her nastiness towards him when they were in a relationship.
A toxic relationship. The biography devoted to Elon Musk by Walter Isaacson – known for having signed that of Steve Jobs in 2011 – allows us to learn more about the complex personality of the founder of SpaceX. And more particularly on his romantic relationships. The billionaire himself, and several of his relatives, agreed to participate in the work. According to the author, the majority of them had in common the visceral hatred they felt for Amber Heard.
“Elon’s brother, Kimbal, and his close friends, hated Amber with a passion far greater than their distaste for Justine (Wilson, the billionaire’s first wife),” Walter Isaacson explains to the British site of the London Times. For the singer Grimes, with whom Elon Musk had three children, the South African businessman is “attracted to demonic chaos”, and that this term suits the actress perfectly. She explains Elon Musk’s attraction to toxic relationships by the way he was raised by his father, Errol Musk.
“It all has to do with his father, and the way he was raised. And he always ends up choosing relationships where he is mistreated. He associates love with being mean and abusive. This is what Errol and Amber have in common,” she continues. Elon Musk’s brother, Kimbal, does not hesitate to call the actress a “nightmare.” “It’s really sad to see him falling in love with these people who are very mean to him. There is beauty, sure, but they all have a dark side, and Elon knows they are toxic,” he says.
Walter Isaacson explains in the book that Elon Musk’s romantic relationships turn into real “psychological torments”. The billionaire himself admits to having the feeling of being taken for an idiot, “especially in love”, describing his relationship with Amber Heard as being “brutal”. “Elon loves fire, and sometimes he gets burned,” testifies the actress in the book.
His first meeting with Elon Musk dates back to 2013 on the set of “Machete Kills”. Their romantic relationship was made official in April 2017 on Instagram – it would have started in 2015 according to documents provided by Johnny Depp’s lawyers during the 2022 defamation trial – before their definitive separation in 2018. Elon Musk, however, claims to have maintained a relationship friendly with Amber Heard. Despite everything her loved ones may think of her.
