The tabloid’s take on the situation isn’t accurate. It’s fair to say the abuse allegations against Depp and his subsequent legal battle have complicated his standing in Hollywood. In fact, the actor claims in his defamation lawsuit that Heard’s allegations cost him a role in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbeanreboot. However, the idea that Depp’s own friends have ditched him isn’t remotely true.
Johnny Depp is continuing to gather witnesses privy to the personal struggles he went through with Amber Heard during their volatile marriage, and has now tapped her stylist to testify against ever seeing facial injuries after the actress claimed Depp beat her up.
Depp’s legal team obtained testimony of celebrity stylist, Samantha McMillen. McMillen says she has helped style Heard for “major events” since 2014.
Specifically, she describes styling the star for an appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on December 16, 2015, after the actress alleged Depp had given her two black eyes during an argument that occurred the previous night.
“Throughout the day of December 16, 2015, I could see clearly that Amber Heard did not have any visible marks, bruises, cuts, or injuries to her face or any other part of her body,” McMillen testified.
When describing those facial injuries, McMillen said, “Ms. Heard did not have any black eyes, and had been visibly uninjured throughout the day and at that moment.”
The stylist also gave testimony about working with Heard on May 24, 2016 … the day allegedly brutal fight that Heard recounted during her emotional deposition.
McMillen said she showed up to the house around noon and “she came to me at the bottom of the staircase in Mr. Depp’s house and gave me a hug, sobbing.”
The stylist was adamant Heard had no marks on her face during their meeting on May 24, but admitted, “Three days after my encounter with Ms. Heard, on May 27, 2016, I saw in the media that Ms. Heard had gone to Court with prominent injuries visible on her face. I knew that she did not have those marks on her face May 24, 2016 when I was with her.”
As we reported, Depp’s legal team has collected tons of surveillance footagethey claim prove Heard did not have any visible injuries in the days after the brawl between the two stars.
Depp’s attorney, Adam Waldman, tells us, “Today’s sworn declaration provided by Amber Heard’s own stylist adds to the overwhelming body of evidence demolishing not only her already throughly disproven May 21, 2016 hoax against Johnny Depp, but also her phony December 15, 2015 abuse claims against him.”
Depp’s attorney, Adam Waldman, tells The Blast, “The Hollywood Reporter story alleging Johnny Depp attempted to ‘blacklist’ Amber Heard from Aquaman is a last-ditch effort by defendants to smear Mr. Depp using an evidence-free media and clickbait. It is merely the latest false assertion, anonymously injected into the media by defendants being sued by Johnny Depp for tens of millions of dollars, purposed to save their skins and delay a looming day of reckoning in a court of law.”
Depp is suing the law firm for over $60 million, claiming they breached their fiduciary duty to him.
Waldman claims that not only did Depp not try and have Heard fired from “Aquaman,” it’s really the other way around.
He says, “Grotesquely, the truth is the opposite of their latest ‘blacklist allegation’: according to the New York Post, ‘senior executives at Warner Bros.,’ who are the company’s #Metoo leadership and personally close with Amber Heard, claimed a week ago that Warner Bros. would throw Johnny Depp off the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movie franchise in which he stars because of Ms. Heard’s abuse hoax, notwithstanding that it has been thoroughly disproven by police and other sworn testimony, photographs, audio tape and 87 surveillance videos. Ms. Heard has herself previously been arrested and incarcerated for domestic violence.”
Waldman points out that the lawsuit against Depp’s former law firm has nothing to do with Amber Heard.
“Hidden under the blacklist lie is the falsehood that Mr. Depp is suing Boom Hergott for anything relating to Amber Heard,” Waldman says. “Mr. Depp is suing Ms. Heardfor her actions, the Sun tabloid for theirs, and Bloom Hergott for theirs. Holding hands won’t help them. These matters will be determined by the Court, not the Hollywood Reporter, nor by People Magazine, whose employee conspired with Ms. Heard to put her hoax on its cover. Mr. Depp will have his days in courts; these lies will never survive the disinfecting sunlight of evidence.”
