Reports that Amber Heard and Elon Musk have parted ways (opens in new tab) appear to be true, as the Tesla CEO recently hopped onto Instagram to confirm the news. More specifically, she posted a photo that had nothing to do with their relationship, and he hopped into the comments to be all "we're broken up, y'all!"

The photo in question? This delightful image of Amber doing her best Ariel the Mermaid impression.

After commenting that the photo was "very cute," Elon added "Btw, just to clear up some of the press storm this weekend, although Amber and I did break up, we are still friends, remain close[,] and love one another. Long distance relationship when both partners have intense work obligations are always difficult, but who knows what the future holds."
