The life of a Hollywood actor turned into a continuous litigation.
On the basis of a legal dispute between ex-spouses Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, which lasts for the third year, it is already possible to shoot the series. Last week, Depp decided to meet and agreed to the demand of defendant Amber to provide the court with data on his treatment for alcohol and drug addiction by November 15. It is with them that Amber associates inappropriate behavior and violence by the ex-spouse.
Depp may not try to dispute the veracity of Ms. Hurd’s allegations of his violent and abusive behavior while intoxicated, as well as insist on the cancellation of a protection order, and then refuse to provide evidence to the court to confirm or deny it,
– Amber Heard J. Benjamin Rottenborn attorney said at the last hearing in the case.
To this, Depp’s lawyer replied that “Amber should stop pretending and desperate to prove his lie.” Also, according to him, the Hurd team chose the tactics of Harvey Weinstein’s lawyers – denigrating the victims with the help of discrediting the honor and reputation of media reports.
The feedback was not long in coming. Amber Heard stated that the actor bribed witnesses of violence against her. Amounts she called astronomical – “several million dollars.” This writes the publication The Blast. She summoned representatives of The Mandel Group, the agency that managed Depp’s assets from 1999 to 2016, to the court, demanding that she and the judges be presented with archives of money transactions, including “payments from Depp to cover up acts of violence to witnesses who observed Depp’s violence and / or helped hide it. ” For this, Amber is even ready to cover the costs of generating such a report – 5575 dollars. According to Amber Heard, The Mandel Group was also aware of the Depp violence:
Of particular importance is the fact that The Mandel Group was aware of insults against Hurd and pressure on its employees to make false public statements denying this fact,
– said in an official statement.
At the same time, another trial of Johnny Depp came to an end – but with his former lawyer Jake Bloom. The actor won the trial, which began last December. According to Depp, his personal lawyer and part-time owner of the law firm Bloom Hergott for several years received multimillion-dollar commissions for their services without formalizing the relevant contracts. The lawyer also hid the financial fraud of TMG, which previously represented him. Among them – a loan issued in the name of Depp with the company Grosvenor Park, the existence of which the actor did not know at all. In addition, Bloom was on friendly terms with the head of the credit institution and benefited from the transaction. The court granted the lawsuit and ordered the lawyer to pay Depp more than $ 30 million.
