Take this with a grain of salt…
Yesterday, we reported that Amber Heard was almost an hour late to her scheduled deposition hearing, but not only that: the girl was sobbing and refused to testify under oath, according to Johnny Depp‘s attorney. Now, this info comes from Johnny’s camp, so I’m not sure how much I really believe it, but it was true that she was late and being very difficult. Which does seem odd, seeing as word from HER camp is that she wants all this “over with.”
Legal docs filed by Johnny’s camp allege that Heard refused to leave an office adjacent to the deposition room, and that despite multiple attempts throughout the day, Depp’s team was unable to take her deposition, and everyone could clearly see her going pretty nuts:
Because the “offices are made of transparent glass,” Wasser claims she could “quite clearly” observe “Amber hysterically crying and pacing in her separate conference room, or screaming and yelling at times and laughing at others.”
Wasser adds that “she appeared manic and irrational” and that she “observed Amber’s counsel trying to reason with her throughout the day.”
Depp’s lawyers also claim Heard’s team never turned over documents they had requested. His team is now asking for an order prohibiting Heard from testifying when the case goes to trial or an outright dismissal of the domestic violence case.
Here’s Heard’s legal team’s side:
But a source close to Heard tells a different story about the day. “Although Amber was ready, willing and able to go forward with her deposition, it was not taken by Johnny’s attorneys,” the source tells PEOPLE. “She waited for 10 hours and at no time did Amber ever refuse to start the deposition. There was nothing preventing Johnny’s counsel from commencing the deposition during that time.”
Speaking on Heard’s previously scheduled deposition on Saturday, her attorney Joseph Koenig told the judge, “It did not go forward, she was there for 10 hours. [Depp’s] counsel may have a different view if they think we sat there and did nothing. It is inaccurate.”

The judge ordered Heard to be deposed on Friday, Aug. 12. Depp is set to be deposed the next day, Saturday, Aug. 13. The hearing itself (which was the 15th) is pushed to the 17th. Ooof. We’ll keep you posted, everybody!
