Amber Heard has become close to an Aussie Rules football player while in Australia, according to a new report.

“It was purely organic and by chance around a glass of red wine”, tells an alleged source to the newspaper of their meeting.

The source also described Heard as “intelligent, charismatic and caring” and she and the AFL star have formed a “firm friendship”.

She was pictured attending a Gold Coast Suns game, wearing the team’s scarf, in July 2017.

Heard, who was supposedly single at the time, left Australia in late 2017 after filming for Aquaman wrapped.

She then reunited with Tesla billionaire Elon Musk, 50, with whom she shared an on-and-off romance.

Representatives for Heard and Hallahan declined to comment when approached by The Herald Sun.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted representatives for Heard and Hallahan for further comment.

Heard is currently embroiled in a legal battle with her former husband, Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp, 58.

Depp is suing Heard for $50 million, claiming she defamed him and ruined his career after a 2018 Washington Post article in which she described herself as a survivor of domestic violence. She is counter-suing for $100 million.
