Is Elaine Bredehoft a Johnny Depp fan? Amber Heard's lawyer 'spotted' at film premiere in 2013
In the viral video, a woman with short, brown-colored hair, fairly similar to Elaine Bredehoft, is spotted desperately wanting to catch a glimpse of the Hollywood star
A wild theory has been circulating among TikTok users that Amber Heard's lawyer is a secret Johnny Depp fan. The theory emerged after users spotted a lookalike of the lawyer Elaine Bredehoft in the crowd of Lone Ranger premiere back in 2013 in a video.
The clip, which has now gone viral, was posted on TikTok by a person with the caption, "Amber's lawyer is a Depp fan" while using the popular audio 'Oh my God, who is that?' The clip was shot on July 20, 2013, at the Lone Ranger premiere in London and made its way to YouTube.
In the video, a woman with short, brown-colored hair, fairly similar to Bredehoft, is spotted waiting behind a barricade with a camera in her hand as Depp walks the red carpet. Users on TikTok are convinced that Heard's lawyer Bredehoft is secretly on the side of the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star after realizing that she looks a lot like one of the females in the crowd. Moreover, she could be seen desperately wanting to catch a glimpse of the Hollywood star. The resemblance between the fan and Heard's lawyer is uncanny which has led viewers to declare that Bredehoft is in fact a supporter of Depp. Bredehoft is part of Heard's legal team and against the $100 million defamation trial.
The video took the internet by storm and has garnered over 11 million views in less than a week's time. While it is yet to be determined whether the woman in the crowd is the same as Heard's lawyer, a majority of people are convinced they are the same person.
A user commented, "She probably took the job just to see him all day long" while another said, "What if she is purposely doing bad, so that Johnny can win and she actually likes him? I'm convinced she became her lawyer to see him." Another said, "Even Amber's team are on Johnny's side"
Meanwhile, in the trial, Dr Shannon Curry, a Clinical and forensic psychologist, who was called to the stand by Depp's legal team on Tuesday, told the court that she concluded Heard had traits consistent with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), as well as Histrionic Personality Disorder (HPD) - two conditions found in people with patterns of emotional instability and attention-seeking behavior.
The trial is the consequence of Depp suing Heard for $50 million in damages after she published an opinion article for the Washington Post in 2018 where she mentioned being a victim of "sexual assault". Although the article didn't mention Depp's name, the Hollywood star claimed it implied she was talking about him being the abuser, and that the story negatively impacted his career.
