UPDATE 2:20 P.M. EST: A new report claims Amber won’t be available for a deposition because she’ll be in London for a three-day Justice League costume fitting. Apparently she won’t be back until hours before the trial. Sources on Johnny’s side are scoffing at this excuse since nobody mentioned the fitting until Friday’s court hearing. Sources are calling this a lame attempt to avoid answering hard questions about her own allegations. Also, both teams are reportedly in settlement discussions as Johnny is willing to hand over some money, but Amber wants way more than what he’s offering.
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp‘s teams are at each other’s throats!
At a Friday court hearing, Amber and Johnny’s lawyers battled it out over an upcoming June 17 court date to determine whether a permanent restraining order should be placed on the actor.
Following a report that Heard is trying to avoid giving a deposition in the case, Depp’s lawyer Laura Wasser became frustrated when the blonde’s legal rep argued to have the hearing pushed back even further. Apparently A.H.’s rep feels like she needs more time to prepare her side of the case.
In response to the actress’s plea for more time, Ms. Wasser shot back that letting the case linger will only further damage her client’s career. Laura also went on to request the beauty’s phone records for evidence of her alleged domestic abuse claims. We guess L.W. is keen to prove that those damning text messages supposedly sent by the 54-year-old’s personal assistant are fake.
As for Ambs, she was too busy celebrating a friend’s engagement to attend court.
We’ll keep you updated as this case progresses!
