Wow. Amber Heard is not playing. She is really going for the jugular with Johnny Depp and his compatriots and she intends to get her justice and her day in court. In her bombshell lawsuit against Mr Stanhope, The New York Post alleges as follows:
Heard is filing claims that Stanhope’s accusation that she fabricated her domestic abuse allegations against Depp to squeeze money out of the actor are “completely false”.
“Heard never undertook any action that could even remotely be described as ‘blackmail’,” reads the suit.
Heard, who met Depp on the set of the 2011 comedy The Rum Diary, is seeking the “maximum possibly jury award”, which she plans to donate to a domestic violence charity in Arizona “in an effort to counter the setback made to women by the defendants’ defamatory article and related wrongful acts,” according to her lawyer, Charles J Harder.
“The complaint alleges that Stanhope is a close friend of Johnny Depp and, as part of a coordinated effort, wrote a highly defamatory article about Ms Heard, filled with completely false, highly defamatory and very hurtful statements,” Harder said in a statement.
“Defendants are engaged in a classic case of ‘attacking the victim,’ in an effort to discredit Heard, destroy her good name and reputation, and severely harm her hard-earned entertainment career, on top of the campaign of violence that Depp has inflicted upon her for years,” the suit alleges.
This should send a message loud and clear to everyone that Amber is going to tell her story and she will not be intimidated and cowed. Further, she will not hesitate to extract every red cent she can from everyone and anyone involved in this mess with Johnny Depp. Mr Stanhope is probably feeling very sorry he involved himself in the way that he did, isn’t he?
