More Amber Heard/Johnny Depp NEWS! Are you sick of this yet? Me either!
Yesterday Page Six had a summary of what’s happened with Amber Heard and Johnny Depp over the past four days or so, and if you know ICYDK, you know we were all over that shizzz. BUT- Page Six had a few new quotes, mostly from some random divorce lawyer who is not working with Depp or Heard, and just like, sharing? I guess a lot of media outlets are doing this: going to divorce lawyers to get some “professional perspective” on this very volatile divorce. A New York-based divorce lawyer named Suzanne Bracker weighed in and did not mince words:
“Honey, you know she’s jonesing for the real money, and she has him by the movie-star balls. If she keeps talking, his reputation is going to be mud, and he’ll start losing his female fan base. She’s looking for ‘shut-up’ money, which is a premium. He’s going to have to pay her to shut up….[but] The threat of this kind of exposure is much worse than the exposure itself.”
That last part is Bracker saying that if Heard wanted that sweet Pirate’s money, she would try to work this out with Depp’s people for her silence behind-the-scenes. Which, reportedly, is what she was trying to do, but you know, not so quietly. I think she may have had to do this when Johnny’s people so publicly dismissed her divorce filings.
Sounds very stable. Very, Very Stable.
In addition, the Sun had a lengthy and exclusive story on Sunday, skewing very heavily towards Team Depp. They paint Amber as a party golddigger who got “too close” to her female friends. You can read the full Sun piece here, but it kinda makes me sick. Some highlights, via Celebitchy:
Depp thought Amber was cheating. Amber and Cara Delevingne worked together in 2014 and “as they spent more time partying and flaunting their friendship, Johnny, 52, is said to have become increasingly infuriated by their behaviour. Johnny was ‘driven insane’ by his suspicions that Amber and model Cara were ‘making a fool of him’, a source close to the movie icon claimed last night. And his fears cast a huge shadow over their marriage as the actor lost all faith that bisexual Amber, who he wed in February last year, would ever be loyal.”
Amber was “indiscreet.” A source tells The Sun: “Amber’s friendship with Cara, which grew closer and closer over time, brought about the beginning of the end for her marriage to Johnny. They used to party together a lot and made no attempt to hide the fact that they were quite flirty. Amber always made her bisexual tendencies quite obvious. But that would spark furious rows with Johnny, who hated how indiscreet she was being. On one occasion he even screamed at her, ‘You’re making a fool of me’.
Cara & Amber partied together a lot in 2014. While Depp filmed Alice Through the Looking Glass, a source said: “He needed rest and sleep. But Cara and Amber seemed to have no respect for that. They were constantly partying hard going out and enjoying themselves. It didn’t help that Johnny couldn’t stand Cara. He found her obnoxious and disrespectful and would ask his staff to warn him when she was going to be around. He didn’t like quite a few of Amber’s friends, but he took a particular dislike to Cara. It was the friendship with her that really started to drive him insane.”
Amber’s relationship with iO Tillett Wright. Sources claim iO became “entangled” in their marriage troubles and iO is currently “staying with Amber in the couple’s home.” A source tells The Sun: “iO is another person who’s been very close to Amber and, as far as Johnny was concerned, has been much too close to her for comfort. They hang out a lot and confide in each other and he seemed to resent the fact iO played a big part in Amber’s life as the two of them were struggling. That was another thing that riled him up quite a lot.”
Amber has a dark side too. A source insists: “Amber painted herself as the beaten-down wife who did nothing wrong, but there is definitely another side to the story of their marriage. They have had a series of blazing rows, but Amber has a furious temper herself and she knew how to wind Johnny up and push him to the end of his tether. She would play on the age gap between them, calling him fat, uncool and old. He vehemently denies ever hitting her on Saturday night. He said that he never hit her, that she had a vicious temper and that he has only acted in self-defense. By the end of the marriage they truly hated each other and would slag each other off all the time. There was no love there anymore. But in spite of that, Johnny is devastated about all of this.”
It sounds like Depp simply had an issue with Amber being close to ANY woman, and Amber just like, didn’t really wanna be with him. UGH.
