In a picture tweeted to Elon Musk's 8.3 million followers, actress Amber Heard is leaning casually on the billionaire inventor's shoulder at the Gold Coast, Musk sporting a lipstick kiss on his cheek.
The tweet and Instagram post seems at odds with Musk's general behaviour on social media, as most of his posts appear focused on his business projects rather than his personal life.
"They're obviously happy with their relationship being public and I think a statement like this often does suggest that there's actually been a bit of history to this relationship, it's something they want people to know about and I don't think you could craft an image better." Having moo moo at Moo Moo Gold Coast with @AmberHeard, @CreepyPuppet and @CowanFilms According to Page Six, rumours of a Heard and Musk relationship began during the northern hemisphere summer last year when they were seen together on a couple of occasions.
Last time Heard was in Australia, she and Depp appeared at the Southport Magistrates Court to face biosecurity charges for bringing their dogs Pistol and Boo into the country without the proper quarantine authorisation.
There was also speculation about whether Musk would mix business with pleasure while in Australia - a Tesla spokesperson told the AFR the visit was non-official, but tech site Gizmodo has suggested other reasons Musk could be in town.
