Amber Heard won't lose 'Aquaman 2' role or L'Oreal contract, says source: 'They are very fond of her'
After audio leaks suggested that Heard had abused Johnny Depp, there were petitions seeking her exclusion from the contract
After there were leaks that revealed Amber Heard had hit her former husband Johnny Depp when the pair was together, there was widespread concern about Heard's role in 'Aquaman 2'.
As reported by Screen Geek, a source shared that her role in the Jason Momoa-starred film may not be impacted by the recent reports of domestic violence. The source revealed that Warner Bros "doesn't care" about the allegations against Heard.
The source added that "there’s nothing going on with her role on 'Aquaman 2' and they wouldn’t consider firing her. The petitions to get her dropped from L’Oreal are also highly unlikely to go anywhere with the company. L’Oreal runs Amber Heard’s social media pages and is very fond of her."
The insider went on to say that many people did not know the full story and seemed to side with Heard. "In fact, there’s much more to these allegations than what’s been revealed so far. This is why Amber Heard hasn’t settled with Johnny Depp," the source shared.
"While the audio recordings with Amber Heard don’t look good, Amber still has incredibly damaging evidence against Johnny Depp. That said, Amber Heard and her legal team have chosen to do everything involving their case in court rather than rely on social media," the source continued.
We had previously reported that Heard had started dating Depp shortly after she split from her long-term partner Vanessa Paridis in 2012. They had met while playing love interests in 2011's 'The Rum Diary' and quickly struck a bond before announcing their engagement in January 2014.
The couple eventually went on to tie the knot on February 3, 2015, in a ceremony at their Los Angeles home before celebrating the occasion at an even bigger event in the Bahamas. Heard filed for divorce from Depp on May 23, 2016, and obtained a temporary restraining order against him, stating in court that he had been "verbally and physically abusive" throughout their relationship.
In response, Depp's lawyers alleged she was "attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse". They settled on August 16, 2016, and their divorce was finalized in January 2017.
