In what’s officially the messiest divorce in a very long time, the 53-year-old actor’s legal team is coming to their client’s defense after Amber’s rep denied reports saying the actress refused to be questioned after showing up hella late at her deposition on Saturday.
New legal docs filed by Johnny’s lawyer Laura Wasser argue not only was the Danish Girl star nearly two hours late, but she refused to go under oath during her nine hours at the court house.
Wasser even claims the 30-year-old threw a fit — “crying, yelling, and screaming in defiance” — when asked to submit herself for questioning at 2 p.m. and again at 5:30 p.m.
The documents also say Heard didn’t turn over the paperwork requested of her from Depp’s team — and because of her refusal to cooperate, Wasser is asking for either Amber to be prohibited from testifying during the trial next week, or for the domestic violence case to be dismissed altogether.
