Johnny Depp‘s legal team is pushing back HARD againstÂ Amber Heard‘s abuse allegations — and the Depp team supposedly has new ‘evidence’ to further explain away her allegations as a ‘hoax.’
The 55-year-oldÂ Pirates of the Caribbean star has been going hard after Heard for a while now — you know, especially after filing that $50 million defamation lawsuit against her after she penned aÂ Washington Post op-ed about allegedly being a domestic abuse victim.
Not only does Depp strongly deny the abuse allegations, though, but he also is accusing Heard of spending time in “a new relationship” withÂ Elon Musk just one calendar month after she married Depp.
The lawsuit, filed on Friday, states (below):
“Unbeknownst to Mr. Depp, no later than one month after his marriage to Ms. Heard, she was spending time in a new relationship with Tesla and Space X founder, Elon Musk. Only one calendar month after Mr. Depp and Ms. Heard were marriedâ€”while Mr. Depp was out of the country, filming in March 2015â€”Eastern Columbia Building personnel testified that Ms. Heard received Musk ‘late at night’ at Mr. Depp’s penthouse. Specifically, Ms. Heard asked staff at the Eastern Columbia Building to give her ‘friend Elon’ access to the building’s parking garage and the penthouse elevator ‘late at night,’ and they testified that they did so. Building staff would then see Ms. Heard’s ‘friend Elon’ leaving the building the next morning.”
The lawsuit continues (below):
“Musk’s first appearance in Mr. Depp’s penthouse occurred shortly after Ms. Heard threw a vodka bottle at Mr. Depp in Australia, when she learned that Mr. Depp wanted the couple to enter into a post-nuptial agreement concerning assets in their marriage. Ms. Heard’s violently aimed projectile virtually severed Mr. Depp’s middle finger on his right hand and shattered the bones. Mr. Depp’s marriage to Ms. Heard came to an end in May 2016.”
Of course, that fight, and Depp’s hand injury from the bottle-throwing incident, was well-documented at the time.
For what it’s worth, a rep for Musk disagreed with the time frame the lawsuit states here, tellingÂ E! News that the pair actually only got together AFTER Heard’s divorce from Depp (below):
“Elon and Amber didn’t start seeing each other until May 2016, and even then it was infrequent. Their relationship didn’t become romantic until some time later.”
Musk and Heard were relatively short-lived themselves, of course; the couple was only first photographed together in April 2017, and they broke up just a few months later. Obviously, ‘Amber’s friend Elon’ may well have occurred surreptitiously, though it’ll likely be difficult for Depp to prove barring significant video evidence, one would imagine…
Musk has later come into the entertainment news limelight for later briefly datingÂ Grimes, being forced to deal with a flurry of drug controversies surroundingÂ Azealia Banks, and then infamously smoking WAY too much weed withÂ Joe Rogan.
The Lawyers Respond…
As for Heard, her reps have not commented directly on Depp’s new cheating accusations, but her lawyer has commented on the lawsuit in general, saying in a statement (below):
“This frivolous action is just the latest of Johnny Depp’s repeated efforts to silence Amber Heard. She will not be silenced. Mr. Depp’s actions prove he is unable to accept the truth of his ongoing abusive behavior. But while he appears hell-bent on achieving self destruction, we will prevail in defeating this groundless lawsuit and ending the continued vile harassment of my client by Mr. Depp and his legal team.”
And Depp’s attorney then re-responded to Heard’s attorney’s statement, saying (below):
“‘They want to silence Amber Heard’ doesn’t sound like a denial by Ms. Heard of Mr. Depp’s 40-page, evidence-packed complaint. We hardly intend to silence Ms. Heardâ€”to the contrary, we intend to subpoena and compel evidence from her, her three hoax-assisting friends, and Elon Musk. We look forward to holding the overwhelming video, photographic and eyewitness evidence we finally possess up against Amber Heard’s (so far silent) attempts to explain the inexplicable.”
This lawsuit is only getting more and more controversial, for sure!! And something tells us this is FAR from the last we’ve heard from Depp or Heard here…
