Johnny Depp’s Court Update is Confusing and Telling
If you expected this to be a clear cut case, well there’s apparently more to it than that. Regardless of which side you end up finding yourself on, there seems to be some blame that can be administered to both parties.
So what really came to light in this recent update? Well we definitely learned some things that we didn’t really want to know. And in the process we’ve come away with more questions than answers on our part.
Sean Bett Supports Depp
Johnny Depp’s Security Chief, Sean Bett, spoke out during the trial in support of Johnny Depp. When questioned about the claims that Depp repeatedly beat Amber Heard, he testified that it was untrue.
“On many occasions, I witnessed her shout at Mr. Depp. I was also told by Mr. Depp on multiple occasions that Ms. Heard had physically abused him. Ms. Heard often behaved in this way when she had been drinking. I learnt quickly to recognize the signs, so that we were able to leave the situation before it escalated further.”
Upon being cross examined by Heard’s lawyer, insinuating that Mr. Bett was being less than forthcoming. Saying that Bett would have a vested interest in lying about Depp’s involvement would mean a lack of job security for him.
After being alleged that his trustworthiness was in questions, Bett had this to say:
“Ma’am you can call me a liar a hundred times. I’m not a liar. I’m telling the truth.”
You might have seen this particular update getting thrown around a lot on social media. If you’re thinking that it’s some childish and tacky joke being played on their behalf, well unfortunately that is not the case.
Depp woke up to what had appeared to be human feces in his bed at the couple’s penthouse. The maid for the penthouse also testified that the feces appeared to be human. Despite that, Amber Heard claims that one of the two Yorkshire terriers left the feces in the bed.
Luckily there’s no pictures to ruin your day with, but it was determined that either Heard or a friend of hers left the feces. Honestly, how old is this lady again? This is some middle school level of pettiness.
Who Chopped Off Depp’s Fingertip?
Downside to the court proceedings, one of the biggest pieces of evidence that Depp supporters mention, is the missing fingertip. Saying the Depp should be able to account for the abuse allegations if he could provide context.
Heard alleges that Depp abused her for three days straight while filming there. Of course, Johnny Depp denied that claim, saying that while they did fight, the only physical abuser was Heard.
Saying that she threw a vodka bottle at him which is what resulted in the missing fingertip. After that happened, Depp wrote messages on the mirror in the home with his own blood from the fingertip.
You can see where it sounds a little murky. Straight up sounds like the plot of a horror movie. Assuming that Heard did cause the injury with the vodka bottle, it won’t spell certain doom for her, but it won’t help.
That being said, Heard herself has been no stranger to alleged drug use as well. Main difference is that Depp admits to trying to kick a bad habit, while Heard continued to profess innocence in all of it.
Back in August of 2014, Depp’s lawyers shared official medical documentation that showed Heard’s substance abuse. These notes not only confirmed that Heard was being disingenuous, but it also supports Depp’s assessment of her character.
Inside of the notes, they claim that Heard experienced severe bouts of jealousy, anger and anxiety. Saying that she was prone to vocal and violent outbursts at any given time. All of which corroborates Johnny Depp’s claims against Amber Heard as the instigator of their fights.
She eventually managed to avoid a criminal conviction, but it left a permanent scar on her personality/legacy. According to Kevin Murphy, he was pressured by Amber Heard to commit perjury.
He said that she warned of him losing his job and that she would make his life miserable. Hopefully it’s obvious that this isn’t conclusive evidence, but it is a character witness.
Did Heard Fake a Rape Story?
One of the more explosive and disheartening stories from this hearing was from that of Kate James. Kate was a former personal assistant to Amber Heard, the two had shared stories at one point apparently. James shared a dramatic and horrifying story to Heard in confidence.
Telling the actress how she had been raped at machete point in Brazil some years before taking the PA job. When James learned that Heard had exploited and used her story in a witness testimony, she was outraged.
“She referred directly to a violent rape that occurred to me 26 years ago and she twisted it into her own story and she used it for her own use. I am a sexual violence survivor and that’s very, very serious to take that stance if you are not one.”
Those are the biggest revelations to come from the court case this last week. There is a further trial planned for later in 2020, for right now there is a lot of evidence and testimony to go over.
Somewhat strangely, this first hearing did not include the massive bombshell that dropped concerning Elon Musk. Tech giant and multi-billionaire Elon Musk may actually know more about the case than most people know. He was romantically entangled with Amber Heard at the time.
Not only was he romantically involved, but he was present at the time that Depp was not. Which also means that he was present at the time that Heard acquired her injuries. Whether that paints him guilty or not, he probably knows more than most about what happened.
Additionally, the courts moved past the testimony from Depp’s previous wives. They both testified earlier in the year that Depp never abused him. Their testimony was backed up by several other supporters of Depps.
