Amber Heard says she has broken up with billionaire SpaceX and Tesla mogul Elon Musk.

The actress said on Instagram on Wednesday that although she and Musk have ended their romance, they "care deeply for one another and remain close". Heard said she is going through "difficult, very human times".

Both Heard and Musk made their relationship public with Instagram posts in April.

Heard's divorce from Johnny Depp was finalised earlier this year. Musk has been married three times, twice to British actress Talulah Riley. He has five sons from another previous marriage.
