Elon Musk confirmed that he asked his ex-girlfriend Amber Heard to role play as video game character Mercy from Overwatch – and said the outcome was ‘awesome.’
The Tesla billionaire, 52, dated actress Heard, 37, seven years ago – and she commissioned a cosplay outfit to be made after Musk said she reminded him of Mercy, his new biography has revealed.
The Aquaman actress then wore the raunchy costume for Musk, he confirmed.
Tech mogul Musk has since posted a picture of his ex-girlfriend dressed up in the sultry Mercy outfit for his 156million followers.
She glared down the camera while donning the white costume, halo, wings, and suspenders. It has so far received 2.8million views on X, formally known as Twitter.

His new biography titled ‘Elon Musk,’ revealed: ‘He told her that she reminded him of Mercy, his favorite character in the video game Overwatch.
‘So she spent two months designing and commissioning a head-to-toe costume so she could role-play for him.’
Responding to a tweet about the incident in the book, Musk confirmed: ‘She did dress up as Mercy. It was awesome.’
To transform into the video character, Heard donned her iconic white-blocked bodysuit and gold halo headpiece.
She also has mechanical wings attached to her back that Heard would have needed to play the character in good faith.
Known for her blonde hair and prominent bust, a Mercy outfit would have needed some stiff corset boning as well as a dark-colored neckpiece.
After posting the image of Amber Heard online, Musk was flooded with comments: ‘This could be the most bookmarked pic on X.’
Another person wrote: ‘Nobody has more fun with power than Elon. It’s exhilarating.’
And a third said: ‘Just in time for Halloween planning ladies.’

This comes after it was revealed that Elon Musk’s family despised Heard because they thought she was ‘toxic’ and a ‘nightmare.’
Musk’s brother Kimbal and the entrepreneur’s friends hated the Aquaman star ‘with a passion’ because she brought so much drama into his life during their year-long relationship.
According to Musk’s senior staff, Heard was ‘like the Joker in Batman’ who ‘thrives on destabilizing everything.’
Walter Isaacson’s biography of Musk, describes the relationship as a ‘dark vortex’ that was the most painful relationship the Tesla founder has ever been in.
‘It was brutal,’ Musk says of his time with Heard, adding that the breakup led to the ‘most concentrated period of pain’ he had ever endured.
‘Elon Musk’, which is out Tuesday, sheds new light on Heard, 37, whose stormy marriage to Johnny Depp led to a televised civil trial in Virginia and ended with a jury awarding him $15 million in damages for defamation.
In the book Isaacson writes that Musk, 52, who has 11 children by three different women, was ‘not bred for domestic tranquility.’
The book says: ‘Most of his relationships involve psychological turmoil.

‘The most agonizing of them all was with the actress Amber Heard who drew him into a dark vortex that lasted more than a year and produced deep-seated pain that lingers to this day.
‘It was brutal’, the author writes.
Their affair started after she made the movie Machete Kills in 2012 and he agreed to be a consultant. The film was about an inventor who wants to create a society on an orbiting space station.
Heard says in the book: ‘I guess I could be called a geek for someone who can also be called a hot chick,’ she jokes. Musk took her for a Tesla ride and Heard ‘decided he looked attractive for a rocket engineer.’
Their next meeting was in line for the Met Gala in New York May 2016. Heard was about to divorce Depp and found Musk was a ‘breath of fresh air’.
A few weeks later Musk came to visit Heard in Miami, where she was working. He flew her up to Cape Canaveral where a Falcon 9 launch was scheduled.
Heard ‘thought it was the most interesting date she had been on’, the book claims.
For Musk’s birthday that June, she gave him a surprise visit to the Tesla factory in California by flying in from Italy where she was working.
Heard ‘hid in the back of a Tesla and popped out’ when Musk came by.
Their relationship ‘deepened’ in 2017 when he flew to see her in Australia while she was filming Aquaman.

The book says: ‘Her playfulness, however, was accompanied by the type of turmoil that attracted Musk.
‘His brother and friends hated her with a passion that made their distaste for Justine (Musk’s first wife) pale.
‘She was just so toxic’, Kimbal says. ‘A nightmare’. Musk’s chief of staff Sam Teller compares her to a comic-book villain.
‘She was like the Joker in Batman’, he says. She didn’t have a goal or aim other than chaos. She thrives on destabilizing everything.’
She and Musk would stay up all night fighting and then he would not be able to get up until the afternoon.’
They broke up in July 2017 but got back together for another five ‘tumultuous months.’
The end finally came after a ‘wild’ trip to Rio de Janeiro in December 2017 with Kimbal, his wife and some of the kids.
The book says: ‘When they got to the hotel, Elon and Amber had another of their flamethrower fights.
‘She locked herself in the room and started yelling she was afraid she would be attacked and that Elon had taken her passport.’
