  • Elon Musk is looking for a new girlfriend, after actress Amber Heard broke up with him in August.
  • Musk told Rolling Stone he doesn’t think he can be happy without a “long-term” companion, but said he’s having trouble meeting women.

Elon Musk is lovesick over ex-girlfriend actress Amber Heard (who’s in “Justice League,” opening this weekend), and he wants advice for who he should date next.

In a new profile of the tech mogul in Rolling Stone, the CEO of both Tesla and SpaceX opened up about his romantic life.

“I just broke up with my girlfriend,” Musk said, (hesitantly) according to Rolling Stone. “I was really in love, and it hurt bad.”

Heard, who divorced actor Johnny Depp in 2016, began officially dating Musk in April, when the two took to social media with twin Instagram posts. Then in August, Heard said that they had split. Heard wrote on Instagram that they still “care deeply for one another and remain close.” She also said she was going through “difficult, very human times.”

According to Musk, the breakup was more Heard’s idea than his. “She broke up with me more than I broke up with her, I think.”

Now Musk is looking for love again.

“If I’m not in love, if I’m not with a long-term companion, I cannot be happy … Going to sleep alone kills me,” he said. Musk has been married three times, though twice to the same woman, British actress Talulah Riley. He has five sons.

And though you might think it’s easy for a hyper-intelligent billionaire like Musk to meet women, it doesn’t seem to be the case.

“Is there anybody you think I should date?” he asked the Rolling Stone reporter. “It’s so hard for me to even meet people.”

Perhaps he just works too much.
