Ahead of the spring trial date for Johnny Depp 's $50 million defamation suit against his ex-wife, Amber Heard , the actor's lawyers have issued subpoenas for Elon Musk, who Heard dated after she and Depp split, and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which Heard named as a recipient of half of her $7 million divorce settlement from Depp.

Depp's team wants the ACLU to give testimony at a deposition and turn over all communications its had with Heard about donations, the defamation suit and the star's relationship with Depp, according to subpoenas issued earlier this month and excerpted by Deadline late on Friday, Feb. 12.

The Musk subpoena's 24 specific requests include communication between the Tesla and SpaceX CEO and Heard about the ACLU, Depp's libel case against The Sun and "any allegations of physical abuse or domestic violence committed by either Mr. Depp or Ms. Heard," as well.

Depp filed the $50 million suit against his ex-wife in March 2019, claiming she defamed him by writing an op-ed for the Washington Post about domestic violence.

Depp has denied the allegations and said Heard was in fact the abuser in their tumultuous relationship, which came to an end in 2016.

The actress' relationship with Musk came up repeatedly last summer during Depp's failed libel trial against British tabloid The Sun, which had branded the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star a "wife-beater."
