Kaplan is just upset because Depp fans can't stand her, imo. Johnny moved on to Polina Glen and possibly others as soon as the marriage ended, if not before. Amber Heard never has and never will accept the consequences of her actions because it's always someone else's fault. :no2: :no2: :no2:

[I made a pdf and also a word document for anyone who wishes to read this evil, vile article without clicking on their links. You can message me if you would like, because I cannot figure out how to attach it here and didn't feel comfortable putting it here.] Also, thank you Lbock.

I am just appalled at the lengths AH and THR will take to slander Johnny!! There are so many lies and inaccuracies here that I am just shaking my head. This article is so evil that I could barely stomach reading it.
To the above Culprits, I say, "Listen to the unedited tapes of JD and AH conversations!" Afterwards, if you all are incapable of believing your own ears, then listen to the myriad of DV Survivors online. We can tell you which is the voice of the abusive party: AH. She outright admitted to abusing Johnny.
I think that this is a big part of the problem, these abusive tabloids are dead set in the belief that there is no such thing as male DV abuse. Do you unbelievers want some stats? Will That make you believe?



According to this source, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner.

Believe It!! AH abused Johnny! That is the end of it!

The more I think about it. That piece took a long time to research. That piece was in the works and written because everyone expected him to win (granted they tweaked it with the verdict). Bet that was a PR Kaplan commissioned piece

Pathetic hit piece from THR who also had hit pieces recently against Ray Fisher (who denounced the abuse going on on the Justice League reshoots). Looks like their speciality now.

Gre3f is doing a great job calling out the numerous lies and fictions in it by the way. What a bunch of hacks.

First, thank you, Lbock, for providing that link to allow us to read that hideous piece in THR this morning, without giving that rag a single click. It’s taken a lot of “stop and goes” and deep breaths to get through it.

The one thing that kept interrupting my anger over the twisted facts, the omissions, and the fabrications was the chilling desperation. Ms. Siegel’s determination to just say whatever it takes - it’s almost a now or never endeavor. Just do what AH did repeatedly: lie, embellish, pretend. Ms. Siegel goes back to some familiar reader touch points (e.g. Joel Mandel, Jake Bloom, Tracey Jacobs, significant others, “wild fans” incapable of coherent thought, etc.) and then literally rewrites history believing, I suppose, she knows more than her readers.

Done in one lengthy, outrageous monologue, she purposely leaves no time for the reader to stop and validate anything, moving from one sensationalized, edited, or downright fictionalized vignette to another. But, I didn’t feel hopeless. I was, actually, experiencing a bit of deja vu angst as I remembered Rolling Stone’s hatchet piece, pathetic cover and all. At least RS pretended to interact with Johnny. This piece is a gotta-get-it-done, truth be damned hit piece wreaking of contrived expose’ just as AH’s fabricated testimony did; it is also reckless, just as AH’s testimony was.

THR is part of MRC Media and Info, a division of MRC (Media Rights Capital) which merged with PMC (Penske Media Corp) on September 23, 2020, to form what is now PMRC. Jay Penske of PMC and Asif Satchu and Modi Wiczyk of MRC, are the guys in charge at PMRC. Owners? Didn’t come across that term. Seems like every Hollywood tabloid, including Deadline, Rolling Stone, Variety, The Billboard, and now THR as well as many more, are one, big conniving family. Only The Wrap is on its own.

There is significance to all this: look at the date. Just a few weeks after the Nicol Judgement. THR, new kid in this PMRC house, eager to show what they can do, turn to Tatiana Siegel, their Executive Film Editor to knock everyone’s socks off.

Siegel probably had this ready to go. As Lbock pointed out: “The more I think about it. That piece took a long time to research. That piece was in the works and written because everyone expected him to win (granted they tweaked it with the verdict). Bet that was a PR Kaplan commissioned piece.”

If nothing else, THR proved they’re certainly where they belong, amongst the amoral, ruthless, a-life-for-a-story dregs of the tabloid world. PMRC have nothing to worry about, unless they believe in fact checking. In which case, they’d best pull this vendetta, return the blood-money, and invest in some long term, on-the-job retraining in journalistic ethics.

It is a joke mostly full of old rumours disproven or jaw droppers. Former romantic partners Angelina Jolie, Marion C and Keira. Come on. The ear piece. Long since corrected. And somewhat downplayed the settlement with his old lawyers and financial managers. Rocky. No mention of the witness or picture of Rocky and Johnny all chummy? :censored: about Comic-Con of course she knew he would be there the whole thing was choreographed and I’ve long wondered if part of her motivation for the Washington Post piece was bitterness at the noise made for him. :censored: over how Johnny and Adam met it was through Edward White. If a Saudi Prince introduced them why are the Saudi owned press so against them?

This is 100 percent Kaplan and Heard. And it is one thousand percent getting in the hit before the truth about her charitable donations come out. I quite liked some of the end bits. Yes he is still a big star. Yes outside the increasingly small power base of Hollywood he does have massive support. He does have plenty of fans and money. I feel quite proud of just how rattled these self serving people appear to be about Johnny’s fans. You can feel their frustration that he seems to just get more loved.

I think he is doing the right thing to lay low as is Adam. Let them hang themselves this is not doing AH any good. No one seriously sees her as a victim. No one is flocking to support her. Is that piece getting lots of likes? I am not going to look at their Twitter.

Well done to everyone who has rattled the cages of these awful people.

And his Instagram followers continues to rise.

I’ve been looking through comments and reaction to the piece. Overwhelmingly on his side. One of the problems the anti Johnny camp has is that so many bits of the story are so well known now thanks to the UK court case most people who even bother to read it will dismiss because we all heard her abuse.

The lack of analysis over the evidence against her and attempts to say she has any kind of good character is just laughable.

Thank you Justintime. I failed to mention other appalling errors. When was Minamata filmed in Romania? Really that is just ignorant. A taped message to Lori Ann is suddenly mentioned by an anonymous source. Hmmmm now who do we know who has a habit of suddenly remembering things?

I know Wikipedia is not always the most reliable, but this is what is showing on that site for where Minamata was filmed, not all in Japan as many think, but apparently not in Romania either:
Filming began in January 2019, with Bill Nighy, Minami Hinase, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tadanobu Asano, Ryo Kase and Jun Kunimura added to the cast. Filming took place in Japan, Serbia and Montenegro
Starring: Johnny Depp; Hiroyuki Sanada; Mina...
Based on: Minamata; by: Aileen Mioko Smith; ...
Produced by: Johnny Depp; Andrew Levitas; S...
Production company: Infinitum Nihil; Metalwork ...

Minamata (film) - Wikipedia
Guess Ms. Siegel was in a bit of a hurry....

What is astounding is that this garbage, slanderous lie is actually being published in print form with Johnny as the main cover. It's like they're begging to be sued but I doubt Johnny would bother, since he already has the appeal and VA.

Yes - he's on the front cover. One of the pluses and minuses of this huge fan base and reservoir of DV survivors/supporters - he does sell.

Greg Ellis is a guy who knows JD personally and professionally. Last night he did a live podcast about the THR article and was fantastic. He is doing another one in a few minutes.
