Also of note is the first mention (that I can recollect) is her alleged abuse of drugs and alcohol.

She has always claimed his drug abuse but I don’t remember any mention her using “prescription and other drugs...with alcohol.”

ME: "if" - if? IF! What the :censored: do you think, woman !?!
And "nothing but love" ... Racing to divorce him first, right after his mother's death, send a demanding letter about alimony, which was practically a blackmail note, and - and claiming, that she only ask for a restraining order because the cops and lawyers scared her, when there was four or five days between the cops coming to check on her, and she going to court and claiming, she was oh, so scared!
Yes, I better calm down or I might blow a fuse :biggrin:
But - it's like she doesn't know him at all ...
He would see right through her lies, and know that is not the way you behave, if you love somebody! Did she really not know that?
I feel so sorry for Johnny, that he had to go through all this. But also very proud of him for fighting back now :love:

Thanks Ade for the link to the deposition. It makes for depressing reading when you consider Johnny put up with all that during their short marriage. Despite all of it he stuck with her, lied to shield her and still she stabbed him in the back. There's no doubt she's got mental health issues, the sheer scale of abuse and manipulation is unbelievable.

I'm so glad Johnny took the high road, kept quiet and concentrated on building his case which now leads to a good lawyer and lots of witness statements, video footage and much more to back up his rightful claim of being the 'abused' and not the 'abuser'. I know there's still a long way to go but I'm sure that in the end he'll be the one walking away from court having been found innocent.

Had Johnny known about the video surveillance tapes that his former lawyer (with the request/help from Amber) obtained in their custody back then, he may have pursued the case sooner. It was Adam Waldman who made the discovery of the hidden security tapes that aided in his investigation into Amber Heard's and friend's hoax. Nevertheless, remaining silent as Johnny built his case was an act of bravery while going through the backlash of negativity brought on by the hoaxer woman.

The difference between a DECLARATION and a DEPOSITION


"A declaration is a written statement made for use as evidence in court and signed under penalty of perjury. It may substitute for a sworn affidavit if the applicable rules permit and it is in proper form. A deposition is the questioning of a party under oath with a court reporter recording the testimony. A party noticing a deposition pays for the court reporter. Counsel for the party being deposed has the right to cross examine the deponent..."


What Ade posted is a link to Johnny's Declaration. I was getting confused and needed a bit of clarity. I hope this is helpful.

From the People article:
In one instance, Depp alleged he had asked Heard to sign a post-nuptial agreement after the two had tied the knot in 2015.

“She went berserk and began throwing bottles at me,” Depp claimed. “The first bottle sailed past my head and missed, but then she threw a large glass vodka bottle.”

The actor said the bottle hit the countertop where he had his hand and caused his finger to shatter, ultimately severing his fingertip.

“I had to have 3 surgeries to reconstruct my finger and contracted MRSA three time,” he claimed. “I feared that I would lose my finger, my arm and my life.”


MRSA! :-O So this is why it took him over a month to recover from finger surgery and was under 24-hr care before returning to the POTC5 set.

As for the other Blast article Ade posted from 5/20, it's possible JD was counting on $ from POTC6, FB3 and maybe even profits from City of Lies and The Professor to pay for some of the legal expenses. Thanks in large part to the nonstop lies and slurs of the Sea Witch, all those have faltered to some degree. He got the official news about Pirates in December and told the Bulkey (sp?) Law firm to stop work in January. Or maybe Depp's main legal team decided they had obtained enough material from the secondary lawyers and there's a dispute over what work was authorized.

Either way, Johnny is absolutely right when he says that he will continue to deny that he abused Heard or any other woman for the rest of his life. He'll have to, sadly, and he will have that mangled finger as a constant reminder as well. All thanks to Scamber and her pack of greedy, soulless grifters. I hope they all go to jail.

I do not have a legal mind but it seems to me that Johnny and his team have their ducks (facts) in a row. Go Johnny!!

This sentence on page 16 just make me so sad ...


There was nothing particularly memorable to me about this incident, given the sheer volume of violent assaults and other abuse I endured from Ms. Heard during our relationship.


NOBODY should live like that! And especially not a sweet fellow like our Johnny ...

Thanks a billion, my sweet Chocolat :airkiss2:

I just came across this , which doesn't contain anything new except this:



“Johnny is gratified that his words are finally being heard but remains frustrated that the media largely ignores his overwhelming factual evidence of what Ms. Heard has perpetrated,” Adam Waldman, Johnny Depp’s attorney, tells HollywoodLife.com in a statement. “In contrast, Amber Heard’s lawyer says ‘the evidence is clear,’ and then provides none.” We’ve also reached out to Amber’s camp and will update the post with any further information.


And yeah, that must be frustrating. Although I think more media outlets have started to tell about his side of the story/the truth. Albeit in a very cautious way. Or at least it seems timid to me compared to how they have "trumpeted" Johnny's alleged guilt out to all four corners of the compass earlier.

Yes, meeps, that comment struck me hard as well: so off-hand, a resigned acceptance that this abuse is now a part of his life. Who, in a position to do anything, would believe the truth? What a terribly impossible place to be. I just don’t know how he’s had the strength to persevere. I admire him without reservation.

All of this is so sick. What kind of society do we live in that provides not only sanctuary but multiple, respectable, world renowned public platforms for this now admitted-under-oath perjurer and abuser, and (imao) dangerous sociopath, to present herself as a compassionate human being of integrity and worth??

Johnny is right - Hollywood IS a cesspool - a cesspool of cowards - cowards and powerful, moneyed thieves. All one and the same. How else does crucial evidence get lost when the supposedly best attorneys available are minding the store? Why else would the media so obviously and continually operate in lockstep whether it be selectively reporting or reviewing Johnny’s work? How does a talentless, amoral viper conveniently emerge (and is obviously propped up for years) as a sought after spokesperson for the most timely movement of the decade? Answer: When there is power and money - lots of each - involved.

Reading about the way Johnny was abused makes me extremely angry and extremely sad.

I think that the April 13 post about the big time drug dealer wanting his clients to exert pressure for dropping the lawsuit rings true. She who cannot be named is a grifter and it is very plausible that she referred many, many influential people to him/her. When I read that post, things just clicked about why her side is always promoted.

The most heartbreaking part is Kevin's testimony describing how Johnny tried to jokingly say "it was no big deal" and that he could tell Johnny was uncomfortable & embarrassed.


Amen to that :sad: :tear: :bawl:
