    Elon Musk has something to say about his breakup with Amber Heard.

    While news broke over the weekend that the low-key couple called it quits after roughly a year of a typically private romance, the tech mogul and actress had not personally confirmed the split — until now.

    After his ex shared a photo of herself and "The Little Mermaid's" Ariel putting forks in their hair on her Instagram account, it apparently caught Musk's eye and he decided to leave a comment.

    "Cute," he wrote initially before following up with a longer statement about their relationship status. "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."

    It was a press conference with a little bit of everything — space travel, science, technology and the offer of a kiss. Welcome to the world of Elon Musk. Scott Budman reports.

    He also reaffirmed reports that attributed the breakup to difficult work schedules. "Long distance relationships when both partners have intense work obligations are always difficult, but who knows what the future holds," he added.

    The former duo were last spotted together in late May. While Musk continues to work on his various business ventures, Heard has been busy filming "Aquaman."

    "The timing wasn't good for them," a source told Us Weekly. "He's super busy and works all the time. Amber is filming in Australia until October. She's in no position to settle with him. She feels her career is just starting."

    While the timing might not be right now, as Musk said, "who knows what the future holds."

    Never say never.
