The lawsuit “of the century” costs countless media media between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard and has been made into a movie.
The “of the century” lawsuit that took a lot of media coverage between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard was made into a movie.
Recently, an American free streaming platform called Tubi, has produced a low-budget movie about the trial of the case between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. The movie is called: “Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial”.
The film stars Mark Hapka and Megan Davis as Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
The film was premiered on this platform on September 30.
It is highly likely that the film will only exploit the information that has been available and announced before, and not go into every detail of the lawsuit.
Here are the key news that were revealed publicly in the “huge giant” lawsuit between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard:
Heard accused Depp of sexual assault:
Although most of the evidence has been made public in the UK trial in 2020, the specifics are gradually being released in this trial. Aquaman’s lawyer Ben Rottenborn defended his client that Depp had brutally beaten in various ways. Heard was subjected to repeated sexual violence with brutal beatings and profanity. However, a spokesperson for Depp denied the allegation, calling it “fabricated” and “intended to shock Hollywood that Amber has mastered and used to exploit a serious social movement.” .
Depp’s obscene message about Amber Heard:
Many of Depp and Heard’s past texts were presented to the jury. One of them was an October 2016 exchange between Depp and his longtime friend Isaac Baruch. According to the text of the message, Depp wanted “Amber’s rotting corpse to decompose in the trunk of the car”. During the cross-examination, Depp felt humiliated about his statements in the written statements. Among other documents Depp sent, one mentioned the drowning and burning of Heard. Depp added, “I would sleep” with the corpses burning her afterwards to make sure she was dead.
Depp’s daughter Lilly Rose did not attend the wedding of her father and stepmother:
At the second trial, Depp revealed that his daughter Lily-Rose did not come to congratulate him on his wedding. The actor further revealed that the relationship between Heard and his stepchild is not really close for many reasons. Depp-Heard’s wedding was only held with more than 20 guests, mainly close friends of his ex-wife. After the wedding ceremony, Heard and his friends immersed themselves in the party with “dance, alcohol and drugs”.
Depp and his sister’s abusive childhood memories:
Both Depp and his sister Christi Dembrowski testified that they were abused by their late mother, Betty Sue. The 84-year-old father, John Sr. was also a victim of domestic violence. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor shared that his mother used to scold her husband in front of her children, but John Sr. always patient. When asked why the actor persisted in his “toxic” marriage despite the allegations he faced, Depp explained that he did not want to follow in the footsteps of his father. The actor hopes to have a happy marriage, but he thinks Heard has changed too much. “This is no longer my woman, now the two of us are enemies,” Depp said.
Depp used drugs with Paul Bettany and Marilyn Manson:
Depp admitted to having used stimulant drugs with friends, WandaVision star Paul Bettany and musician Marilyn Manson. When asked by Heard’s attorney if Bettany was “a good friend you used to do drugs with?” Depp admitted, “That’s a strange question. Paul Bettany is a good friend.” The couple collaborated through the films The Tourist (2010), Transcendence (2014) and Mortdecai (2015). Depp also said he used cocaine with musician Manson, “We must have had cocaine together a few times” and joked, “I once gave Marilyn Manson a dose to stop his mouth”. Depp also testified that Heard “despised” Bettany because “we became such close friends, and to her, my friend was a threat and would make me abandon her.”
Depp shows off his severed finger:
One point of contention concerns Depp and his ex-wife’s fight in Australia, where Heard threw a glass bottle and severed the tip of his finger. However, the actress’s lawyer denied it. The Depp side has presented a picture of a “bloody” finger as evidence. At the time of the incident, Depp lied to preserve Heard’s reputation. In the courtroom, Depp held up his “broken” finger, which was healed, and described it as “funny”.
Heard admits to starting the fight:
In an audio recording provided by Depp’s legal team, his ex-wife admits to hitting Johnny Depp, and she argues that she didn’t “punch” but “hit” him. Heard said it was only “normal physical impact” on Depp, and didn’t hurt her ex-husband, although she also has no idea what her hands actually did to him.
Cosmetics brand “exploited” Amber Heard lied in court:
During the trial, the surprising detail was that Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft told the client to use chalk to cover the bruises on his face. The powder box presented in court was from Milani Cosmetics, and Heard used it until filing for divorce in 2016. However, Milani Cosmetics denied that the product was not sold until December 2017, while the court heard. Heard and Depp’s marriage had ended a year earlier.
Heard asked to see Depp after the domestic violence restraining order was imposed:
In July 2016, Depp testified that Heard had asked to meet despite the ban while he was in San Francisco, which made the actor awkward. “I went to see my ex-wife in the hope that she would retract her lie,” Depp said. “There’s no way she would do that, and I don’t understand what I’m going there for.” The Pirates of the Caribbean claimed that he was tricked into going there and that he couldn’t stand it after Heard accused Depp of being absurd and then failed.
