What does that qualification imply about Johnny’s other witnesses that did not see ah with a battered mug when she claimed otherwise (and even stood firm against changing their testimony at her behest)? Sorry, but it seems even when an obviously justifiable pro-Johnny piece is being written, reporters practically choke on “too much” truth when referencing Johnny’s evidence. These jokesters should be apologizing through their respective noses rather than continuing their adjective games. Ugh - enough already . . .

“. . . .(Samantha) McMillen’s testimony could carry significant weight in the ongoing defamation suit between Depp and Heard, as the stylist is a legitimate witness who regularly works with other stars in Hollywood. In fact, she recently styled Brie Larson‘s much-talked-about look for the premiere of “Avengers: Endgame.”
I don't think that this means the other witnesses are not legitimate. Samantha was a good friend and stylist for Amber Heard. Amber can minimize the other witnesses by saying that they are friends or associates of Johnny. It sounds to me like Samantha will have a lot of credibility because she is Amber's friend and she is telling the truth. She will not lie to protect her friend.
I think what this means is that because of her experience she can without a doubt say if someone was wearing make up and what a face looks like that had been injured, even if they did have make up on.

Anyone who is interested in reading AH's motion papers, here they are. It is a lot of read, but the more you read the more you will see holes in her story and things that do not make sense. The exhibits are interesting because they don't match up with other parts of her story. For example she talked about Johnny yelling at iO and cursing at her, yet iO's statement says nothing at all about Johnny yelling at her, never even mentions she spoke with him. I think that is pretty important.

Thanks for posting the link to the docs. As many others have commented, it has never made sense that she would marry him in 2015 if it were true that he'd been abusing her emotionally and physically for the 3 years prior. When she could have easily gotten away? Her reactions to his alleged violent behavior in the deposition aren't normal: a man who is "inebriated and high," hits and screams at you, breaks glass - and you lock yourself in a bedroom to go to sleep because you're "jet-lagged"? Who could sleep with a maniac raging in the next room? And while she also makes a point of describing him as drunk, high and delusional at every opportunity, she presents herself as the sober, protective, rational one :mad2:.

Scamber didn't have an answer when Blair Berk asked her if she ever called 911 for any of the horrible incidents described - strangled, broken nose, ripped hair. I would love to see someone like Berk or Waldman grill her on the stand in court. Or even Bette White from Twitter - she's fantastic!

She testified that one night in LA she was going between rooms getting her things together such as clothes and her toothbrush to leave and Johnny kept blocking her. All I know is that if I were living with someone who was abusing me over a period of time I would have a bag packed and ready to go at any given moment with the necessary items.

The fabulous Mr. Adam Waldman issued another statement earlier today.
I love his choice of word in describing Amber Heard's scams.....diabolical!

This is probably nothing and maybe it is badly written or I am mis-reading it but in a click bait Metro article (yes, I know I shouldn't have - I meant to click on another article .....) it ends with this:

<<Amber claimed in court documents that Johnny repeatedly hit her and choked her during their marriage and detailed several incidents in which she alleged she was left injured after his attacks. Sources close to Elon later told Metro.co.uk that as of now these claims are not accurate.>>

Hey! I thought I would give my "2 cents" opinion, for what it's worth.
First of all, I dearly hope, with all of my heart and soul, that Johnny wins and ideally, his reputation is restored, since he never did anything to deserve the outrageous damaging claims to begin with.
Okay, so I watched the video in which she evades the question of whether she hit Johnny. Right there, that tells me she's hiding something. In addition, she has that same indignance, which I have seen many, many, many times from so many others in my last retail job (stay with me, this is related). I often manned the self-serve check-outs, and whenever I would (quite non-accusingly, as we were never allowed to accuse customers of attempted theft) point out to a customer that items they had on their cart did not come up on the sale, it was ALWAYS those who intended to steal who would get very defensive, in this same indignant way. It looks like an exaggerated defense, meant to intimidate, as well as to hide what they do not wish exposed (their true intent). It's the "How DARE you!!" stance that makes you go, "Hmmmmm?!!".

Now, are the claims where Johnny would take drugs and turn into "monster Johnny" as well as pushing her "baby sister" down the stairs new details? I don't recall seeing these before. Well, we clearly see the perspective of her changing her story and adding more and more shocking details of "abusive" Johnny as time goes on. Here is what I have to say about the drug-taking claims and their effects on him. Many, if not all, street drugs are highly addictive. An addict's life is pretty much consumed by getting their next fix, as soon as possible. It is not something that they just decide to indulge in now and again. It gets to the point where they "need" the high. So, IF he were addicted, I am sure many, many more people, publicly and privately, would have witnessed that "monster" that she insists attacked her. He was not that monster at the "Black Mass" TIFF premier, that's for sure. I was there and he was a gentleman AND she was with him. It seems that she is trying to find a way to explain why only she experienced and saw that violent monster, and why most others didn't. The argument just does not hold water for me.

And some time has passed since the original allegations. The fact that she just adds and adds more "*gasp* OMG!" shocking details, the kind that, in my mind, would have been revealed early on, IF it was true, and also changes her story, makes her story less and less and less credible to me. She has a lot to lose when the real truth comes out and she knows it. I think that is why she feels the need to insist that her version(s) is the truth.
Go Johnny go!! I have never believed for one scintilla of an iota of a second that he ever abused her and I have my very strong reasons, in addition to these, as to why I believe so!
Cheers!

Thanks for your input, Snowcat. You are not alone in your assessment of Amber Heard's sinister actions.
It's true, she's conveniently added false ugly details to her story with each discovered evidence against her.
The documents show her premeditating a scenario, conspiracy, and time and time again, changing her story including a lapse in memory when it suits her agenda. When we obviously see a plethora of inconsistencies in her claims, up go the red flags. She must be feeling more pressure because there's been a fare amount of negative articles about Johnny in the past two weeks in order to take the focus off of her. I call it propaganda. Amber Heard fights dirty, using any means to gain respect and credibility and a sure sign that she is very scared to go to trial....maybe because the consequences of perjury are quite severe.

Thanks for your reply Chocolat! It will be interesting to see how it all unfolds, only because we care so much about Johnny.

I think that Amber's PR is working hard to distract the attention away from the testimony of Samantha McMillan who has nothing to loose by telling the truth. She is not a freeloader like the rest of Amber's so called witness friends and has no reason to lie under oath. She is not winning in court so once she again is trying to win in a court of public opinion but a lot of people see right through her this time. :nosmile: :no2: :mad:

It seems strange that she suddenly is remembering all these 'new incidents' at the precise time Ms McMillan is making her testimony. Smacks of desperation to me. At the end of the day when the whole truth comes out I suspect Johnny will have the last laugh.

Looking at the whole sordid business with neutral eyes and not as a Johnny fan....the facts are none of the women Johnny previously had relationships with accused him of abusing them, even during the dark times he was addicted. So we are asked to believe he suddenly becomes a violent wife beater in his 50s?
Doesn't add up.
