Johnny Depp took the stand on Wednesday where a text message was displayed in which Depp had promised that Amber Heard was going to get “total global humiliation”. He also referred to Elon Musk as Mollusk. According to Johnny Depp, Amber and Elon Musk had an affair soon after Johnny and Amber split up in 2016.
Who is Mollusk? Why did Johnny refer to this term?
According to Britannica.co, Mollusks are soft-bodied invertebrates of the phylum Mollusca, usually wholly or partly enclosed in a calcium carbonate shell secreted by a soft mantle covering the body.
Depp referred to Elon Musk as Mollusk because Musk allegedly had an affair with Heard soon after their split. According to Depp, Heard and Musk met at the 2016 Met Gala event. Soon after they met each other, they started dating each other allegedly.
However, Musk has denied the claims that he and Heard dated in the past. Nevertheless, Depp claimed that he was at a low point in his life after Heard’s abuse allegations and admitted to writing the message.
There were a few more disturbing messages displayed in the courtroom, but, Johnny denied writing those messages saying someone else must have sent them.

What did the text message exactly say?
In the text message shown at the courtroom, Depp was seen calling his ex-wife Heard a gold digger, flappy fish, and low level. The text message is from 2016 which was sent by Depp to his talent agent Christian Carino.
Depp mentioned in the text message, “She’s begging for global humiliation.. She’s gonna get it.”
He referred to a new relationship saying, “I met a f—ing sublime little Russian here… Which made me realize the time I blew on that 50 cent stripper… I wouldn’t touch her with a goddam glove.”
“I can only hope that karma kicks in and take the gift of breath from her,” seemingly referring to Heard.
“Sorry, man… But, NOW, I will stop at nothing!!! Let’s see if mollusk has a pair,” Depp added, in an alleged connection to Musk.
In 2020, these messages were brought up when Depp had sued The Sun for publishing an article calling him a “wife-beater”.
However, Johnny lost the case against The Sun and Heard’s allegations were proven authentic in that trial.
Amber Heard and her relationship timeline
Heard was previously dating photographer Tasya van Ree from 2008 to 2012. They were pretty serious about each other. Heard had even legally changed her name from Heard to Van Ree when they were together. However, in 2009, Heard was arrested for domestic violence against Tasya. The incident took place at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. They both split up in 2012, the arrest wasn’t made public until her divorce from Johnny Depp in 2016. Although, Tasya testified that the incident was over-sensationalized and misconstrued.
The Depp Heard trial has been ongoing for a while now and some serious allegations have been made. Although, this courtroom battle will come to a conclusion on Friday, 27th May 2022.
