Brian posted the full declaration from the mechanic


And her trying to get expensive work done on the car after they split claiming Depp agreed to pay.
So this was additional work that she had done, not the work done for the television show that was supposed to be a surprise from Johnny and her father?

Johnny had the car restored in 2014. David K. (the mechanic) said that after the separation he continued to work on Amber's car. She wanted to change something that had been done to the car in the restoration. He was informed in June 2016 (after the separation) that all bills were to be sent to her.

Thank you to Lbock for this confirmation re: the latest insulting rumor involving JD being promoted by the likes of Broadway.com, CNN, CinemaBlend, and Yahoo to mention a few. Put to rest by none other than Stephen Deuters.



Rather convenient timing, it’s been suggested, for the rumor to have “gone viral” just as the frightening news concerning the mechanic and AH/Daddy threat-fiasco (referenced above in this thread) started making
headlines. I may have used the word “fiasco” a bit too loosely, I think.

AH’s sick Papa-Dearest has threatened a man’s life over the loss of a payday! These are not the emotional ramblings of a distraught father worried about his daughter’s physical safety. It’s never been modified or retracted. As more and more under-oath testimony continues to add weight to the veracity of the Plaintiff’s already solid complaint, I can only trust Johnny’s team - and the Court - to be anything but dismissive re: the disturbing antics of the Defense and it’s supporting entities going forward.

That is a long statement from Depp's team who are usually concise and quoted previously as saying "Mr Depp does not have a dog in this fight". (pmcdeadline2.files.wordpress.com/2019/10/2019_10_29_heard_petition_to_enforce_subpoena1-wm.pdf)

Was there some sort of ruling issued that Johnny Depp's legal team cannot post their motion from the Fairfax County website? Is there also a ruling about this declaration from the mechanic that it cannot be posted on the website? I understood everything was to be made public. Have I missed something?

Her team sent a letter to the judge about the article. Seems to me like they are trying to cover up for the father because he seems more concerned about his money than he does for the alleged abuse of his "baby girl."

Sometimes it just doesn't get posted right away, for whatever reason.

Me thinks Kaplan doth protest too much..
Interesting I can’t find a subpoena uploaded for TMG but we know she is suing them to comply.

Well, perhaps they took a closer look now that there are eight months to trial date, instead of two, and Johnny’s team doesn’t have quite so many lawsuits to focus on. I’m hoping they knock her socks off.

Kaplan has made herself the obnoxious, willing partner of an amoral client who lies as easily as she breathes. Ms. K’s reputation is being deservedly shredded and more often than not she’s coming across as a whining freshman, repeatedly gathering her client’s twisted complaints, malicious half-truths, and flat-out lies, to seek out the Court’s blessing as much as its intervention. Enough.

I’m also hoping the Court is doing its own homework and is perhaps rethinking the value of allowing a still-empty-handed Defense to run roughshod over the Court’s generosity by making Discovery requests clearly and solely designed to derail the entire process. All the while, blatantly lying to the fawning media about what it’s received - and keeping mum about what it’s produced - so far. Again, enough.

I agree, but she’d do well to lay off the drama when trying to paint a distraught father picture of Papa H. That description is a hard sell no matter how they spin it. I’m also sure she referenced an article that cherry-picked Papa Heard’s comment, i.e. left out the real cause of his distress: loss of “10% of the money” he’d been salivating over. The only parental anxiety demonstrated by Papa H was over the demise of his daughter’s acting “career”. Another meal ticket jeopardized . . .I hope someone on Johnny’s team makes sure Judge White gets the real story.

I understand what everybody is saying. But there is a concern. Why have we not heard anything from Tillett Wright or Joshua Drew and their deposition? Also why have we not heard anything from Paul Bettany or Ellen Barkin depositions? It was my understanding I could be wrong, but I thought everything was supposed to remain public. Is it because there's nothing there? Or is Kaplan getting ready to pounce? The newest information that is causing a problem, is nothing more than a declaration not a deposition why is Kaplan making this such a big deal? Is it because it does not show her client in a good light? Or did team Depp violate some court order?

As I understand the judge is not to google anything it can only rely on motions submitted. That’s not to say they are ignorant in what goes on. But Depp team has to hit home the truths in motion. Ie. She filed irreconcilable differences. Not abuse etc

Until the opposition from Depp lawyers, I had been thinking that team Depp were stepping back from this particular subpoena because TMG lawyers had made statements to give the impression that Depp was violent to Heard and had paid people off but TMG did not have any real proof of this. I thought that TMG did not want to admit they did not have documents to prove their allegations and team Heard were not going to find what they are looking for.
From Heard petition to enforce subpoena October 29 2019 page 15.
The requests in the Subpoena are relevant and reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence because they seek documents that relate directly to Mr. Depp's allegations, Ms. Heard’s defenses, and the credibility and bias of several witnesses in the underlying case. For example, the deposition transcripts requested in Request No. 1 may shed light on TMG's allegations that Mr. Depp has strong-arméd witnesses to perjure themselves on Mr. Depp's behalf, as well as other instances of reckless and dishonest behavior. This is plainly relevant to Mr. Depp’ s allegations that Ms, Heard fabricated her claims of abuse. Indeed, TMG asserted in its cross-complaint that
‘Mr. Depp spent millions on a series of hush money settlements and that “the details of these payments and settlements will be fully revealed during discovery and trial.”

Unless the Depp opposition is public, what might or might not be in the TMG documents, is just speculation

(Replying to myself as there are different lawsuits being discussed. This is part of Heard v TMG in California court.)

That doesn't sound good, but isn't it still Ms Heard and her team thinking, that they will find anything?
They do not have any proof that there really is anything to find.
And I have all the way thought, that the TMG just mentioned, that they had known all along about the abuse as a part of their smear campaign against Johnny back when they're still preparing to go to court. In order to make him look like the bad guy at least in the eyes of the public.
If they really had known all along or at least part of the time, that "the big bad man" beat up "poor little wifey" then they were committing a crime by not going to the authorities, right?
And even more, if they helped with the hush payments, Ms H. is going on about.
I would think, that they would have kept quiet about it, if that was really the case. Or what?
