The legal showdown between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is slowly but surely slipping into a farce. The Deadline edition, citing its sources, shared information about new defense witnesses whom Hurd’s lawyers are going to call for questioning. Among them suddenly was Johnny himself – he should testify tonight.
According to journalists, Depp’s legal team confirmed that the actor will indeed appear in court. Of course, he is unlikely to “protect” his ex-wife. Most likely, the lawyers want to ask him questions about the details that surfaced after the speech of Amber Heard herself and her witnesses – for example, about whether he put a bottle in her.
Deadline journalists note that regardless of who wins in court, the losing side will certainly appeal.
