When Amber Heard and Johnny Depp married in 2015, many were shocked. After all, Johnny had been in a long-term relationship with Vanessa Paradis for 14 years, which resulted in two kids, and the two never tied the knot.
But, the couple announced their intention to divorce after two years of marriage in 2017, and it would prove to only be the beginning of their drama.
In the years since their split, Amber has accused Johnny of domestic abuse, and he has alleged that she made the story up for financial gain. While their divorce battle seemed to come to an ugly conclusion with a $7 million settlement to Amber in 2017, more information about the months leading up to their split began circulating on April 7, 2020.
In a video released by The Daily Mail that originally came from court evidence, Johnny and Amber can be heard having a confrontation in March of 2015 that resulted in the actor's finger getting severed. While Amber alleged during their divorce that Johnny had cut his own finger during a fit of rage, Johnny can be heard in the video saying that Amber cut his finger with shards from a vodka bottle.
Though there's been a resurgence of attention toward Amber and Johnny's tumultuous relationship, the actress has moved on from her ex-husband. After dating billionaire engineer Elon Musk for a year beginning in 2016 and then being linked to It: Chapter 2 director Andy Muschietti, she has since moved on with a cinematographer.
Who is Amber Heard dating? Read on to find out all the details about her girlfriend, and for her comments on her sexuality.
Who is Amber Heard dating?
After Amber's split from Elon Musk in 2017, her dating life remained fairly under the radar, save for the (unconfirmed) speculation that she was dating Andy Muschietti. But, in January of 2020, the actress was seen kissing a mystery woman outside of a hotel in Palm Springs, Calif. The pair was next seen together at the Women's March in Los Angeles on Jan. 18.
Before long, it was reported that Amber's girlfriend was set decorator and cinematographer Bianca Butti.
According to Bianca's IMDb page, she's worked as a cinematographer for 10 episodes of Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta in 2013, the romance film Hank and Asha, and the 2018 series Kill Rob Bailey, among other credits which mainly include shorts.
Bianca worked in the camera operator department on Love and Hip Hop: New York and Chrissy & Mr. Jones.
The 38-year-old is also a two-time breast cancer survivor. It's unclear as to when Bianca and Amber began dating.
Amber allegedly had an affair with Cara Delevingne and Elon Musk.
As part of the court proceedings, the couple's friend Josh Drew was called to testify in court, and he made the claim that Amber had an affair with supermodel Cara Delevingne and Elon Musk just after the couple had split.
According to Mirror, the three got together shortly after her separation from Johnny, and while Amber's relationship timeline with Cara is currently unclear, she was linked to Elon as soon as a month after her marriage to Johnny.
This new information could bring Cara into the court proceedings, as Elon has already been subpoenaed during the investigation, which Johnny's legal team alleges he's been dodging.
"Witnesses place Mr Musk with Ms Heard at the time she was executing her abuse hoax against Mr Depp in May 2016," Johnny's legal representative told the outlet. "We have questions for Mr Musk, once he stops evading his subpoena, as he has done since 2019."
What is Amber Heard's sexuality?
Prior to dating Johnny Depp, Amber was in a serious relationship for five years with photographer Tasya Van Ree. She said that she was bisexual in 2010 at a GLAAD event, and she then elaborated on her coming out experience at a SXSW panel in March of 2019. Per People, Amber explained on the panel that she was raised in a strict religious household.
"I am from Austin, Texas. My dad is out of central casting Texan. Good Southern man, and I was raised in a religious home. And being an outspoken lesbian, atheist, vegetarian, I remember when I told them about my relationship, that I was in love with this woman, and at the beginning of that it was just tears, tears," she said. "They didn’t know how to process it because, for them, it was being thrown into a binary system of processing it, negative or positive."
She later explained that her parents came to accept her sexuality after they saw her receive an award.
"Five years later, I was getting an award, and I asked my parents to drive out to Dallas," she said. "And I see them sitting front and center and here I am getting this 'gay' award... Attitudes and hearts can change."
While Amber has gone through a lot of changes over the last few years, it appears as if she's found some happiness with Bianca.
