Who is Amber Heard dating? An update on the star's romantic life

Who is Amber Heard dating? Pictured: Amber Heard attends the Planned Parenthood Of NYC / Spring Into Action Gala 2019 at Center 415 on May 1, 2019 in New York City

Everyone's curious about where Amber Heard is now—and who she's spending time with. 

Though Netflix's Depp V. Heard revisits a very chaotic and toxic time in the actor's life, viewers are seemingly looking ahead after the doc's August 16 release. Is Heard taking on more films? What's going on with her daughter? What's her net worth? And, of course, who is the Aquaman actor tied to romantically? Let's dig into specifics.

Is Amber Heard dating anyone? 

At this time, it appears Heard—who recently relocated to Spain with her 2-year-old daughter, Oonagh Paige—is not seeing anyone. If she is, she's keeping the relationship out of the public eye. 

The last person she was tied to was Bianca Butti in 2022, though it's unclear where the two stand now. Judging from her recent viral interview with Deadline, Heard is seemingly shifting her focus. Her main priorities are taking care of her child and carrying on with her career. 

"You know, I just want to make movies and be appreciated, as an actress. I don’t want to have to be crucified to be appreciated as one," she told the publication. 

Amber Heard's relationship history:

Though she is arguably most well-known for a chaotic relationship with her now-ex-husband Johnny Depp, Heard was tied to other heavyweights in the entertainment industry, and one very famous billionaire. 

Bianca Butti (2020)

Heard had sparked romance rumors with the filmmaker early on in 2020 and likely quarantined with her, according to People. Though they were spotted getting affectionate—and Butti supported Heard throughout her trial—things seemingly cooled off when Heard welcomed her daughter in 2021. 

However, they were spotted together in late 2022, perhaps rekindling their relationship. It's also possible that the two never stopped seeing each other, either. We likely won't know anything for certain until Heard acknowledges her status. 

Andrés Muschietti (2019)

Rumors surfaced that Heard was tied to director Andrés Muschietti, but the romance apparently ended as quickly as it began. They were spotted out and about in Los Angeles throughout the course of 2019...until they weren't.

Vito Schnabel (2018)

Heard and Schnabel, an American art dealer, spent time getting to know one another while in New York City in 2018. Eventually, they took their love across the pond for a game of Wimbledon and a Swiss getaway to celebrate the New Year, People further reports. Not much is known regarding their breakup, but sources like US Weekly claim distance factored into their demise.

Elon Musk (2016-2018)

It's difficult to forget a billionaire's dating history, but Elon Musk's romance with Heard is oftentimes overlooked. Though they were in a film together—2013's Machete Kills, which featured a cameo from Musk—things didn't heat up until 2016 when they crossed paths at the Met Gala. Depp, however, alleged his ex-wife cheated on him with Musk. 

The exes parted ways amicably after a few on-again, off-again moments. She told The Hollywood Reporter: "Elon and I had a beautiful relationship, and we have a beautiful friendship now, one that was based on our core values."

Johnny Depp (2011-2015)

The Rum Diary costars met in 2009, but were still involved in other relationships. Two years later, they took their friendship to a more serious level and eventually got engaged in 2014. But after being married for a little over a year, the two parted ways. 

In 2018, Heard penned an op-ed for The Washington Post, and though she doesn't mention Depp by name, she insisted she was "a public figure representing domestic abuse." That in turn began their lengthy legal battle that resulted in a highly publicized and chaotic trial in 2022.

Tasya van Ree (2005-2010)

Tasya van Ree was a pivotal partner for Heard, as she helped the star come to terms with her sexuality in the public eye. 

"Coming out did impact my career, it was difficult. It was not easy," Heard said at The Economist‘s Pride & Prejudice Summit in 2017, according to People. "I did that even though everyone told me it would end my career, without a doubt."

Towards the end of their relationship, abuse allegations were made against Heard, who was arrested for striking Van Ree at an airport, something the photographer insists was "over-sensationalized."

In a statement, the artist said: "Amber is a brilliant, honest and beautiful woman and I have the utmost respect for her. We shared five wonderful years together and remain close to this day."

Though it's not clear where they stand now, it seems this was a pivotal point in Heard's romantic journey.
