I think you're right there, ForeverYoung. And the tabloids and gossip mags, who so love to paint Vanessa as the victim and Johnny as the villain totally forget, or more probably ignore, because it doesn't fit their preferred (melodramatic, soap opera) storyline, that Vanessa is not mad at him, never was as far as I know, and defended him against Amber at once. That tells me that they split up peacefully by mutual agreement like grownups. So no victim and no villain.
Except that, I guess, they might both have felt sad, and a bit like victims of the circumstances, when they gave up on their relationship.

This is a good win. Looks like Johnny can go after commissions or at least go for the count that Bloom and his firm took money from him through TMG without a signed agreement. :toastingpirates:

Johnny was always traveling too and busy with work. At one point one of them said they had approx 30 projects going on between the two of them. When the kids were young they all traveled together but as they got older the family wasn't together like they used to be. I never really believed it would last forever but I think they did the best they could, as long as they could, for the sake of the kids. Still, I never doubted that Amber went after him with a mission.
I always had the impression they drifted apart, and Heard took advantage of that. But I'm convinced they parted friends. I also remember Johnny quietly giving a large cash gift to Vanessa on his own volition because they had had a great relationship and two lovely kids.
Which shows Johnny's generosity, and respect for women.

I don't know if this belongs in this thread, but I came across this video today which seems to be another sign of the tide turning in Johnny's favor concerning the AH accusations situation... looks like quite a few similarly themed videos have been popping up as well.

This is an horrific escalation of AH’s claims:



She’s been quiet too long and, of course, Johnny’s film is coming out. I hope Mr. Waldman is ready.

It's obvious that Amber Heard is scared and resorted to more lies to gain the sympathy vote. It's always been her pattern to play this all out to the media and in the court of public opinion. In a real court of law, they want facts and evidence, which she has none. If Amber Heard crumbled under the questioning from Laura Wasserman, I can only imagine what she will turn to in order to avoid Mr. Waldman.

And, of course, one of Johnny's star witness just passed away. Let's hope no one loses Jerry's deposition.

I would think Mr. Waldman has all the evidence, including Jerry's deposition, under lock and key. And who knows what else that has been kept private. What I take issue with is how the media fall all over Heard's response and very few of the major outlets reported Johnny's side. I understand The Blast had exclusivity with the photo of Johnny with the bruise caused by Amber and a few other outlets picked up the story but not any of the major Hollywood entertainment sites. Really unfair.

:highfive:

That may be part of Johnny's plan...perhaps his lawyer doesn't want it to appear that this is a trial by social media. I think they are keeping quite a bit under wraps until they can't get her in a courtroom. Let her make all of her claims, then slash each one down while she's on the witness stand, which won't really happen, of course. I have no doubt this will be settled out of court in some fashion.

But she is definitely feeling the backlash she only claimed to feel before.

:agreesign: What I would like to see is Heard in court before Johnny's team but like you said, this could very well be settled out of court. If that is the case, what will the settlement be? Hopefully, at the least, Amber Heard is ordered to admit she fabricated everything.

I think the whole point of the suit is to legally get around the NDA and tell his side, revealing the hoax.

I’m sure he’ll “settle” for a public admission of guilt or, at the very least, Heard admitting that Johnny wasn’t abusive.

This might be the first major news network (ABC News owned by Disney, I believe, and The Associated Press) to go the way of the tabloids - all AH’s story and no mention of the evidence Johnny’s submitted. Where have all these new photos come from? Are they accompanied by verified metadata?



Does anyone know the order of the still-pending suits? Has a date even been set for the SUN lawsuit or for this one for that matter? Is there a preferred order? I would think a settlement in Johnny’s favor vs AH in this defamation suit would be invaluable in winning the SUN case.

And is there ANY wording that could shut her up for good AND prevent the constant, tabloid/social media rehash of all her claims (lies) in future articles (movie reviews, etc.) Can Johnny ever recover from this viper’s viscious lies?

Apparently, the Viper is her own worst enemy. Her lies are getting even her confused as Mr. Waldman, in rebuttal, is referencing her own sworn statements to prove her new claims are rubish. Very difficult, sad to read . . .

The depths this creature can sink to ...... unbelievable.
I am so mad at the tabloids for once again indulging her lies.
Where's the evidence, Amber? :censored:
