Yes certainly. Plausible ideas. But in those cases at this time I think the audio could have only come from his team. All other cases sealed up tight I believe
You may be right, but Amber has made a lot of enemies. Including some of those she originally roped into her scam. It is not unthinkable that someone unrelated to the Virginia case could have released this.
I wonder if TMG was aware of these or had possession at some point. This could be in relation to her suit against them for records.
Also, the Daily Mail is a rival to the Sun, so this could be used for that suit, as well. I don't think the DM was given "exclusivity" by accident.

This was some kind of therapy session. Ah recorded it on her phone and Johnny knew. So both parties consented to recording. Some of the transcript was released in his early filings. She mentions sending him the recordings of the sessions. I assume the full recording may have been received through discovery. But I’m inclined to think as part of therapy they each had a copy.
With no Protective order it is fair game as evidence and public release.

If (as she claims) AH gave a copy of all these “therapy tapes” to JD, then they were, at some point and for who knows how long, in the personal, and then legal, possession of the principals of both parties, not to mention TMG. Who is to say how many copies of the most damning and/or salacious are in whose possession now?

Were these tapes part of the information that was “lost” (i.e. hidden) for years? And that now are apparently part of the huge treasure trove of “found” evidence that could (should) have exposed the TRO-seeking AH before she ever set foot in a courthouse on May 27th, 2016?

KEY A UK tabloid gets this “exclusive” and it just so happens that The Sun suit has yet to be resolved. The latter being a suit that Kaplan has been trying to worm her crooked fingers into for months now. Why not sink both defamation suits at the same time? A risk, for sure, but not nearly as much as standing silently on the side lines while the last few minutes of the demurrer decision play out. If the demurrer is granted, it’s the ultimate win for the Defense - the case is dismissed in the US; and the UK suit will have suffered a lethal blow - icing on AH’s cake.

I don’t think the audio tape could have only come from Johnny’s team, nor do I believe Johnny’s team had enough to gain at this stage (trial is still six months away and AH has produced no admissible evidence to date) to make leaking that tape a worthwhile risk. They could always appeal the demurrer decision with the tapes as “new” evidence.

I can't see Judge White granting her demurrer. Way to much as come out in the wet wash.

I feel this far from over, the tip of the iceberg, so to speak.

Her lies not only hurt Johnny and his family, but also have made it harder for real domestic abuse victims to be believed. For that, she deserves to lose. I hope it costs her 50 million.

I read the Daily Mail article...and listened to Brian's hour-long video. Then I went back and looked at the Daily Mail article again and saw the response from Amber's team. I don't remember reading that the first time I read the article.

Did they listen to the same thing that we heard? How in the world can they claim this tripe?

From Daily Mail -


A spokeswoman for Heard accused Depp of 'vindictively' leaking the tape and trying to victim-blame their client.

'Anyone familiar with the dynamics of domestic abuse would immediately recognize what is really going on here. Throughout the extended tape recording that Johnny Depp vindictively turned over to the press, Ms Heard repeatedly attempts to placate Mr Depp, ignore his accusations, and force him to acknowledge what was really happening in their relationship,' the spokeswoman said.

'For Mr Depp, who lived and lives in an echo chamber of his own making, to try to twist this private conversation to suggest either that he didn't abuse Ms Heard or that she somehow 'deserved it' is nothing more than the latest misogynistic effort at victim-blaming.'

The paragraph you’re referencing, Theresa, was part of the despicable Perez Hilton’s ending paragraph (from a Heard “spokesperson”) in his comments, yesterday, on the tape. I guess the DM decided to add it to their coverage as well, only now it’s a Heard “spokeswoman”. I did not see it there yesterday though they did waiver in their pro-JD tone toward the end of their own piece, including pics of AH’s alleged injuries and ripped out (snipped) hair.

https://perezhilton.com/Johnny-depp-amb ... recording/

PH got quite a few negative comments yesterday by those who were turned off by his obvious effort to close out with a victim-blaming twist to what they’d just read in his lengthy coverage above. Reading that made me believe it wasn’t Johnny’s team that leaked anything, it was Kaplan knowing full well the slight nudge it would take to turn the whole thing once more against JD.

"Ms Heard repeatedly attempts to placate Mr Depp, ignore his accusations, and force him to acknowledge what was really happening in their relationship"

In otherwords when Johnny was talking about her throwing objects at him, she didn't want to talk about that because she just wanted to go over and over like a broken record about him splitting when she got violent. She certainly didn't deny that she threw pots, pans, vases and other things at him.

We heard first hand how Amber treated Johnny. She has no fuse. If she treated him like that we can only imagine how she treats others. :smh: :no2: :facepalm:

I can't believe how manipulative she is. Always turning the tables to what SHE needs and what SHE wants. Made a statement about "when I leave....IF I leave" and I'm rolling my eyes knowing she had no intention of leaving given the fact she stayed there until the judge made her leave. She wasn't going anywhere living off his credit card with her 50K a month lifestyle and feeding him medications to try and keep him under her control. Just listening to her go on an on like a broken record was giving me a headache.

Oh my, this is just sickening. Thanks, ForeverYoung, for cutting through all AH ‘s circuitous protestations and endless repetitions, and the nauseating attempts by this “spokesperson” to sanctify AH.

Bottom line: AH sees physical violence not as an “attack” but as a natural - and inevitable - component of disagreements, even those that start as verbal arguments. Though she apologizes profusely at times, this behavior is so ingrained in her, ultimately, she admits she cannot promise she will never physically attack him again. AND, she has the arrogance to repeatedly berate JD for leaving a scene he has now been conditioned to recognize as the blueprint for an assault about to descend.

On the other hand, throughout all AH’s twists, ducking, endless accusations, self-serving diatribes (spelling out her demands of him in this relationship) and inability to distinguish between an argument and a fight, JD remains steadfast: There must be no physical violence. Never. Ever. Anyone trying to distort that plainly spoken fact is simply showing their true colors and desperation.

justintime, you make very descriptive valid points. I only listened to Brian's recording once and once was enough to determine the degree of instability Amber Heard projects. It really doesn't take a licensed physician or psychiatrist to see her twists, deflections, bullying accusations and sadistic nature she forced upon Johnny. It makes me sad to think how he tried to make it work, tried to fix her with love. I don't think Amber Heard knows what love is. How could she treat gentle Johnny with so much disrespect? Living with herself must be her own personal battle and she knows no other way to cope than with aggression and violence.

thank you & love you Johnny.

I was so happy to see the audio evidence. Solid prove of what she did to him. But why am I seeing this online as well:

He replies: 'Look what I did in Australia, look what I accomplished. I put the f**ker away. I told myself every f**king day, no, he's gone. No he's f**king, put him away.'

Is he referring to himself? In that case AH's team is going to use to prove there is no defamation?

I saw people using this to say it is actually mutually abuse.

I am pleasantly surprised to see people are scolding her from China via 'weibo' a Chinese app. I posted the petition link there hoping to get their support in dropping her in Aquaman 2.
