Musk Probably Paid Portion Of Amber Heard’s Pledged ACLU Donations, Exec Testifies


Musk probably paid some portion of Heard’s pledged donations to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), an executive at one of Musk’s companies testified in court Friday, but she couldn’t say how much — a small victory for Amber Heard and her lawyers, who are trying to show that the tech mogul violated his $250,000 pledge to the organization.


Elon Musk May Have Shelled Out The Remainder Of A $1 Million Pledge To The ACLU

I suspect that he probably paid out of his own pocket for these additional donations, because it’s not something that would have come up on his radar otherwise. He might have seen an opportunity to contribute a portion of what Ms. Heard pledged and did so. — Attorney Larry Stein.

Facing Criticism From Tesla Investors, He Claims The Reason For The Donation Was Misunderstood

Tesla CEO Elon Musk testified on Friday that he probably paid a portion of actress Amber Heard's pledged donations to the American Civil Liberties Union after facing criticism from investors at Tesla Inc.'s annual meeting. The billionaire said a negative statement he made about taking Trump's advice on tariffs was misunderstood by some people as a suggestion that he had talked with Trump about it. I just want to be clear that I did not talk to President Trump about Tesla or any other matter, Musk said at Tesla's annual meeting in Mountain View, California. I don't think it's likely that I would have brought up an issue like tariffs.



He Wanted To Further A Discussion About The Company’s Merger With SolarCity

In his testimony, Musk said he wanted to further a discussion about Tesla's planned merger with SolarCity. In 2016, Tesla bought SolarCity and Musk was chairman of both companies until last year.

According To His Attorney, That Is Exactly What Happened

I think he made payments to them directly, Robert Rossein said. The amount I don’t know because I wasn’t involved. But it was nothing significant.

But there really wasn't anything else to it than that.
