"Although Amber and I did break up, we are still friends, remain close and love one another," Elon Musk posted on his ex’s Instagram as per CNN, adding "who knows what the future holds."

Could the exes reunite?

Elon Musk’s message sparked speculations that the former couple will likely to get back together again because of the way they still regarded each other.

People close to the Tesla billionaire revealed that he had been eyeing the actress since spotting her on the set of a movie production in 2013.

When did they first meet?

Elon Musk did a cameo for "Machete Kills," which starred Amber Heard and Danny Trejo, but he had no scenes with the actress. Following this, sources said that Musk kept emailing the producers of the movie to set him up with Heard, who was still married to Depp back then.

Musk got Amber Heard to agree to have dinner with him, but then the actress did not show up. The billionaire remained relentless in his pursuit, and he told Heard’s people that he wasn’t looking to date her at that time.

“If there is a party or event with Amber, I'd be interested in meeting her just out of curiosity,“ the Tesla boss stated in one of the emails. “I know she's in a long-term relationship, but Amber just seems like an interesting person to meet.”
