They aren't necessarily that invested in whether their client is right or wrong - just in testing the limits of the law. It would be monstrous for AH to get away with this on a technicality. It is so clear that she is doing everything to avoid court.
I can understand lawyers representing her because it's a big high profile case - what I still cannot understand is the parts of the media (not all but parts) that simply don't give any lines to consider that the fact is she may be lying. I've just been trying to find her Op-Ed to re-read it and I found a Grazia article which I just don't understand how anyone could attach their name to. It moaned about the fact that a survey of social media comments about their divorce found that one third of people outright said she was lying (and this is before the huge amount of evidence came out - this is just on the fact that the police and other witnesses said there were no bruises and the small matter of her DV record). Apparently just 9 percent of comments blamed Johnny. And Grazia's conclusion is that this was all because people liked Johnny and he was in their favourite films etc. It failed to give any mention at all about another possibility. It is so screamingly obvious my goodness even Perez Hilton now says he is forced to believe Johnny.
I was in such a grump about this last night because, once again, her antics just happened to coincide with him doing something big. And the pictures and reception he got were just so wonderful. And yet I went to bed worrying again that she'll get away with it.
But then I reasoned - whatever happens, so much evidence has been released against her. And amongst us we tend to say that she has got away with it but really has she? Yes in the sense that she has not yet received any serious punishment but think of it this way. Time is running out for her. Ever since she wrapped on Aquaman she should have been working non-stop. She was in a big franchise film which no thanks to her (my view) was a success. She had two very famous partners. She should be so much in demand. Think of Johnny's career at her age. Think of other pretty if only ok actresses. She doesn't have a deep well of acting talent to fall back on, so she needs to make it count now.
We also say she is the darling of the MeToo movement. I see her as having given herself that crown. Remember that get together at Cannes I think it was in 2018 when she got all dressed up on instagram and made it seem as if she was with the 80 other actresses or however many it was - but she wasn't there - wasn't invited. The 20 something women who I work with mostly don't know who she is, those that do think she's awful.
I apologise for this long rant. But when I am seething about her latest nonsense, I go to an article or post about her and read 90 percent (often 100 percent) negative comments.
Also - just as her new lawyer has limbered up her legalese to make an argument - so will Johnny's.
I agree she has a pattern of making sure she is in the headlines every time Johnny gets attention. I was wondering when she would pop out that big head to be seen going to the laundromat or something soon. She isn't high-profile. The only high-profile in this case is Johnny. A lot of people don't even know who she is because she isn't a well known actress and that's only because she isn't a good actress. If Amber was in a legal battle against someone who was not well known, then nobody would care.
