Excuse me, having a senior moment here. I thought that text messages from SD were proven false? And can someone please refresh my memory as to who Rodrick is? I can't seem to remember what's going on there.
Stephen supposedly told TMZ they were edited or out of context and weird they had no dates. He said he would take the stand and say he never saw or discussed any abuse re AH

AH supposedly had the texts or backup authenticated

For The Sun case documents came out that Johnny admitted to the texts telling Stephen to just appease her and diffuse the situation. Johnny claimed on the plane he was drawing in his journal and she was upset Ava getting more upset. When she hit up to leave he reached out with his foot to “tap her bottom” that is the supposed kick.

But Stephens texts do mention some night or something where Johnny has no memory of events

Still not totally clear on this situation, but I do remember something about a plane, and a tap on the butt. I actually thought that it was proven that the text messages from Steven that she says she has was actually from a phone that Pennington was in possession of.

With all the outrageous subpoenas being issued to just about everyone Johnny ever knew, past and present and now probing into Stephen Deuter's devices and "premises", wouldn't this be considered harassment?

Not Stephen’s premises. The electronics they want him to bring to the lawyers office will be inspected. But still overreaching. That could be personal info. Personal finance. Contacts emails and texts. All kinds of stuff. . Nothing to do with JD

The document stated premises and I was curious what they meant by that. Thank you Lbock.
I hope we have another strong statement from Mr. Waldman before the holidays.

I would have to do the research but I am pretty sure you have to give a reasonable time period to the person you are doing the subpoena for. Some of the ones she just did are a within a week and that doesn't sound right to me.
I think most were submitted Nov 22 and stamped by court Nov 27. But Kaplan complained when they asked for the trial date extended they were having problems getting people to sit over the holidays, so it’s possible none of these took place or will in December. With the trial in August now, they have loads of time. I imagine most will be in January and February. Not sure we will even know.
The recent subpoenas were filed late Nov. and early Dec. but the issue dates are all Dec. 13.

Megan Silverman's Dep noticed for 12/20
ZIDDILE - document return dated 12/26
Sean Bett - Dep noticed for 12/26
Stephen Rodrick - Dep noticed for 12/16 ***Three days after the issue date***
Stephen Deuters - Dep noticed for 12/27

It's ridiculous to believe people would be able to rearrange their schedules especially around the holidays to comply with these dates. If they fail to comply I think they have a pretty good excuse. In fact, I think Kaplan did this on purpose.

This is just another evil manipulative side swipe of Heard trying to mess up everyone's holiday, so they will be upset with JD. Just one of her many abuses: CONTROL.

They have good excuses, due to the holiday, UNLIKE AH disappearing act of not showing up for her depo.

However, Kaplan, will USE THIS OPPORTUNITY to tell the court, that JD & company, are dragging their heels, and impeding their discovery. In turn, will be plastered every where to AH's advantge.

. Based on what Kaplan claimed to get the extension I think most of these will be rescheduled to the new year. Now that the trial is in August they have time. And Kaplan specifically cited the holiday season as a reason to delay so she can’t have it both ways.

Kaplan knew there would be issues with the holiday season. She did this on purpose just to say they are not cooperating, imo,

New Blast article regarding Johnny's texts to Heard's parents on May 27th, when he discovered she had gone to court claiming DV and showed the pictures of her fake bruises: "I DID NOT throw a phone at her!"


Johnny Depp Text Messages With Amber Heard's Parents Revealed: 'I DID NOT Throw A Phone At Her!'
Dec 19, 2019 at 17:25 pm UTC
By Mike Walters
Johnny Depp vehemently defended himself against allegations of abuse moments after his fight with Amber Heard, and in text messages with both of her parents, the movie star claimed her claims were an "absolute lie."

According to a chain of text messages from 2016, obtained by The Blast, Depp was communicating with both of Ambers' parents on the same exact day she rushed to court to get a restraining order against her then-husband.

On May 27, 2016, Amber filed legal documents accusing Depp of violently throwing a cell phone that struck her in the face and caused injuries. Heard filed photographs of the alleged injuries with her restraining order. After finding out that Heard went to court, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star texted with both Paige and David Heard, Amber's parents.

In the messages, Depp tried to explain his side of the argument with his then-wife, which ended with the police being called to their luxury high-rise apartment.


Depp addressed the allegation that he hurled a phone at Heard's face, telling her mom, "i DID NOT throw her phone at her!!!"

At 5:43 PM, Depp sent the following text to Paige Heard:

"I will never understand how we got here, my love for your daughter has been constant and impenetrable!!! but, we are divorcing because i was 2 hours late for her birthday dinner, because i was in a meeting with new business manager and the bank...also, she knew I was going to be late!!! i texted her from the meeting... she treated me like a red-headed stepchild in front of all her friends and it only got worse when we came home, she got violent and i left, as i always do when she decides to get violent with me. her charges against me are simply not true."

He went on to explain:

"I was facing away from her to walk away and lobbed it that she wouldn’t just catch it, or if would land on he couch... and then, of course, rocky comes to the rescue, as if i am some goddam psycho beast, the timing is ugly, my mom passed away... amber, the love of my life, can no longer exist in me... to perjure herself against me is too far!!! i don’t deserve this, paige...but, if this is what’s happening???" Depp ended his string of messages by trying to emotionally connect with Amber's mom:

"I don’t know what has ever been true, or what has been a lie. though, i miss her and, of course, stupidly, still love her with everything in my bones... i guess I just couldn’t make her smile anymore... and that is all i’ve ever wanted!!! gonna call you in a bit, if you’re okay with that... i love you, my dear paige... i miss you very much. xxx... jd"

The movie star didn't limit his messaging to just Amber's mom, and also sent her dad a string of texts.


At 7:45 PM Depp sent the following text messages to David Heard:

"I cannot believe what’s going on!!! Amber is calling this domestic violence!!! she submits a picture that says i threw the phone at her!!! she is putting herself in deep trouble if she continues to perjure herself... I have done nothing to deserve this!!! this is so f***ing sick... i have never been charged, nor arrested for domestic violence!!! SHE HAS!!! twice, this all makes me sick to my stomach... i worshipped her and have been betrayed by the very love of my life... f*** it... she killed it."

He continued:

"i guess i was so bad that it was fine for her to leave me and go to Coachella for 4 f***ing days with all of her girlfriends and to not give her birthday to us!!! the festival and her friends were clearly more important than working things out with me... with these lies she is spewing to save her ass in the press, the truth will always catch up... and the truth will be a b***h.

Johnny Depp also told Mr. Heard he had two witnesses to the events that took place on the night of the incident and once again called the allegation of him hurling a phone at the "Aquaman" star a lie.

"i have 2 witnesses who were in the room when she said that i flung the phone at her. ABSOLUTE F***ING LIE!!! she wants a divorce, she get’s it. but the world will receive the truth and if she is caught perjuring herself (which she will), Australia could reopen their case against her to investigate whether, or not... she has filed a restraining order against me, man... cruel and unforgivable... i’ve done nothing but love her... anyway, the you have it, brother... i hope she’s happy now."

Later that night, the "Pirates Of The Caribbean" star again sent a text message to Mrs. Heard, but this time in response to Amber's mom stating that Amber really didn't want to go public with the restraining order.

At 8:40:55 PM Depp sent the following text:

"If she didn’t want to file a restraining order against me and send a message to the world that i am some kind of violent wife beater ...then why would she go to the courthouse with a photo of her that looks like she’s been abused??? this is my life too, what are my children and my children’s friends supposed to think??? I do not deserve this, and they do not deserve this... especially not from her."

In a statement, Amber's attorney Roberta Kaplan told us, “Less than a week ago, the Court made clear its concern about the parties trying to litigate this case in the press. Given those concerns, we are astonished that Mr. Depp’s lawyers once again leaked documents to The Blast involving Ms. Heard’s elderly parents that Mr. Depp’s lawyers claim somehow exonerate Mr. Depp, particularly when they have not even been produced to us in discovery. Mindful of the Court’s comments, we look forward to litigating (and winning) this case with admissible evidence and sworn testimony in court, not in the media.”

The defamation case filed by Depp against Heard is set to go to trial next year.

I know Johnny is attracted to bold, beautiful women and "characters," but I am sickened to see how he opened his heart, not to mention his wallet, to this low-life family.

Thanks, Ruby Begonia.

Oh, dear, dear, dear . . . You know, even if Johnny had had all the evidence in the world at his fingertips back then, I wonder if he could have brought himself to use it. His heart was so damaged.

As much as JD is a gentleman, I think he would have. Yes, his reputation took a serious hit. His heart, has all but been destroyed. But he is a DAD, and he takes that so seriously. AH hurt his kids. They are his life. He will go down swing, to protect Lily Rose and Jack.

Yes I agree. He just needed to get away from all of it. Escape for awhile. Then had to deal with TMG and Bloom

Interesting. She has been arrested for violence TWICE!! Oh my. Please don’t let this get dismissed tomorrow
