A number of well-known people have become embroiled in the legal drama surrounding the $50 million defamation lawsuit between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, including the Aquaman star, Jason Momoa.
Some fans are wondering what the current status of Momoa and Heard’s relationship is, in light of recent events, particularly if the two are just friends off-screen or if their relationship is only work-related (Both were co-stars in the 2018 Action-Adventure film, Aquaman).
When Momoa started following Heard’s ex-husband on Instagram, there were rumors that the Aquaman co-stars were not on good terms. Some have interpreted Momoa’s actions as showing that he agrees with veteran actor, Johnny Depp. While others think he only did it on the recommendation of his public relations team to convey his neutrality.
At present, Momoa and Heard are still Instagram followers of each other, but it is not known if they are still in touch personally.
Let’s quickly review their relationship timeline. What exactly exists between them?

It was claimed a few months ago that despite their work collaboration, Jason Momoa had a negative opinion of Amber Heard and had even made fun of the actress after she had lost her lawsuit against Johnny Depp. This, however, proved to be completely untrue as it was claimed that the actors were even romantically involved.
When did that start?
The actors shared many intimate scenes in the first Aquaman movie, and the relationship developed over the course of the second Aquaman movie’s production. They grew close to the point where they often visited each other and shared their personal issues.
In relation to the dating rumors surrounding the 36-year-old actress, Momoa was devastated following his divorce from Lisa Bonet, and Heard reportedly acted as a pillar for him.
As per reports, the two engaged in several intimate encounters and grew close, though the Baywatch actor was aware he could not make his alleged relationship with Heard public.

Jason Momoa reportedly spoke out in favor of Heard several times when the filmmakers wanted to remove her entirely from the film. Despite receiving a new contract from DC, Momoa’s dispute with the producers appears to have also resulted in his firing from the series.
