Amber Heard does not have a new billionaire boyfriend.

The actress, who is in the midst of a contentious divorce from Johnny Depp, spent time with tech guru Elon Musk in Miami last weekend, but a source tells PEOPLE the pair are not dating.

“Amber and Elon are friends and have been for a few years,” the source says. “Their work schedules overlapped in Florida over the weekend – Elon was there for the SpaceX launch and Amber was there with her sister for a shoot.”

Musk and Heard happened to be booked at the same luxurious hotel, the Delano South Beach, and the source says “the group hung out at the hotel” for privacy.

As for reports Musk and Heard were seen coming out of each other’s rooms, the source explains, “Elon let Amber and [her sister] use his larger room for privacy while he was out working.”

On Tuesday, Musk wrote on Twitter that he was returning to California.

The Tesla founder is also going through a divorce – his second from actress Talulah Riley.

Musk first filed for divorce on New Year’s Eve 2014, but later withdrew the petition. Riley then filed, again, in the Los Angeles Superior Court in March, citing irreconcilable differences, according to the Associated Press.

They were first married in 2010, before divorcing in 2012 and remarrying a year later.

Heard filed for divorce from Depp in May, and was granted a temporary restraining order against the actor shortly after accusing him of physical abuse throughout their relationship.

In court documents responding to Heard’s request for a restraining order, Depp’s attorney, Laura Wasser, alleged that Heard “is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse.”

The temporary restraining order against Depp was reissued in June, and a court hearing for a permanent order has been scheduled for Aug. 15 and 16.
