Despite speculation that Heard and Musk are rekindling their romance, an insider close to Musk told Us that they are still in the friend zone: “Amber invited Elon to her favorite restaurant for lunch, which serves cuisine from her hometown of Austin. They caught up and kissed goodbye, but are not back together.”
