I loathe gold diggers and I’ve met a few (both male and female) and they are vultures to be around, but is Amber Heard one? I also find airing your laundry in public undignified and distasteful. Most acrimonious divorces can be settled via the lawyers, even celebrity ones, but it does appear Heard is ‘leaking’ things to the media as well as releasing photos to gain sympathy or maybe to self destruct her own career and reputation?
I’m not a fan of Johnny Depp; I’ve seen a couple of films and that’s it and not because he was in them. In fact he ruined Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but does a man who was obviously having a mid-life crisis, and was foolish not to have a prenup deserve to have his private life splashed all over the media so his estranged wife can claim a large proportion of his fortune?
The red flags started to wave when the laughable apology video to the Australians was broadcast in April, when Heard was charged with smuggling in her dogs and falsifying information. Depp didn’t need to be in the video as it was her crime; she was visiting Depp, but consciously chose not to declare the dogs because she thought she could get away with it. Then she blamed her assistant, but when you sign a form, you take responsibility and that’s called adulthood. She knew what she was doing was wrong, and they even ask you verbally if you have anything to declare, and obviously lied. It appears Depp stood by her reluctantly, hence the lack of sincerity and annoyance he displayed in the video.
No one knows the truth as yet, however, Heard’s camp seem to to have a process from a plan as each day something is revealed. Surely she would be better off making a deal and then parting ways as most celebrities do? More red flags start waving when her alleged bruise disappeared the next day, and if you had been attacked the night before, do you really attend a party and not tell anyone what happened? Even with makeup there would be swelling. How can anyone verify the photos are genuine? Was she treated or examined by an independent medial professional who can verify it was an injury and not the work of a makeup artist?
Suddenly the abuse allegations were dropped, but now texts between Heard and Depp’s assistant from 2014 were obtained? Again, these can be doctored and faked. The assistant has not come forward to verify them, and if you look at the texts, you will notice there is text speak and the odd typo, but the punctuation is near perfect. Anyone who texts, and if they are angry doesn’t use commas in the correct place, or even a period. It doesn’t look like a normal text as many people don’t usually use periods for a message, and barely anyone uses quotation marks that Heard uses on one message. Only business texts are usually meticulously structured, and I have a hard time believing Heard actually wrote those herself if she was upset, in fact any human that is upset would not think about commas and quotation marks, or even using capitals.
Then there is he demand for spousal support to keep Heard in the lifestyle she is now accustomed to. It’s only been a year, two at most and she can readjust easily to the life she had before; that she has know for the other 28 years of her life. The sad fact is that Depp is being dragged through the mud, and he retains a dignified silence. His friends and family have come out in support of him, and while as a female I despise any abuse whether mental or physical, but deception is as bad. While many say he may not have been abusive in his former relationships, it doesn’t mean that he isn’t capable. Maybe he was abused too and is keeping quiet? I have a friendship with a couple where they both have abused one another (now separated), and he kept quiet about her abuse to him, but showed me his defensive wounds, and I believed him as he was too afraid to sleep in the house. She got him arrested a number of times, but he never publicly told anyone of her abuse; only a few of us knew, and that he may well have been defending himself.
Behind closed doors no one knows except the parties involved. I am sure if there was proof Depp’s lawyers would seem more concerned for a quick settlement, but they appear calm, because proof is more than texts, hearsay, or photos—none of which can be authenticated. If Heard was abused, she needs medical records, police reports, and independent witnesses to have a case. It does seem to be all about the money; if Depp gives her what she wants, I’m sure all of this was stop immediately. People are disillusioned into thinking all famous celebrities are well off; many live job to job, which is why a television series is a good option as it’s regular work and means a stable income for a while. What happens behind closed doors should stay there, and obviously Heard thought financially it was worth the risk of ruining Depp’s reputation, but instead she has killed her own. Will Hollywood want her still as a minor actress? She maybe well known, but for all the wrong reasons and not her talent.
