Hollywood Attorney Says Amber Heard Hurt Johnny Depp’s Career
Heard is being sued by Depp for $50million (£38.2million) over claims he molested her in 2018 Washington Post op ed. Although she didn’t name him, he claims her allegations made it difficult for him to get film roles.
On Monday, the jury heard from Depp’s security guard, who described two fights between the pair at their Los Angeles penthouse, including one in which he alleges Heard punched Depp.
Depp’s agent described his career before and after the comment was published, calling it “disastrous.” He said Depp lost his role in the sixth Pirates of the Caribbean film, and he was unable to sign any more studio productions in the years that followed.
Another statement was made by a nurse employed by Heard, who said she was prone to outbursts of anger and described apparent injuries after the couple allegedly fought. The nurse’s testimony will continue on Wednesday.
Heard is yet to testify and provide her own account of the relationship, but is expected to comment this week.
