The reports claim that Depp's reasons for not showing up to work included fatigue, sweats, and fever. The reports date from late February and early March 2017, towards the end of 32 days of principal filming. The entry for February 27 says, "Cast member J. Depp left work of own volition before completion of scheduled work on account of fatigue & ill-feeling... this caused estimated company work loss of 5 hours. Slight difficulty with scripted lines was observed of Mr. Depp during performance."

The next day, the report said, "Cast member J. Depp suffered from pain & fatigue today that was later attributed to a dental issue, emergency dental work was later sought. Due in part, company made decision not to extend the filming day... costing 1.5 hours of expected shooting." The entry for March 1 said, "Cast member J. Depp left work of his own volition before completion of his scheduled work due to sweats, fever & feeling ill. This attributed to an estimated overall company work loss of 4 hours throughout day delays."



 

 

The March 2 entry was allegedly in capital letters and read, "ALL WORK SCHEDULED FOR TODAY AND TOMORROW HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE TBD [to be decided]. Cast member J. Depp was unable to report to work today due to illness. Physician evaluation pending." A source close to the production told Radar Online, "It is significant to note, on average, a Hollywood movie with a 20-million-dollar budget working to a 40-day filming schedule, costs approximately $500,000 per [8 hour] day."

The source further said that his symptoms were mostly "Fever, sweats, fatigue, and ill feeling," and revealed that the result of the ongoing court case could have a big impact on the star's future career. "In addition to looking at how being branded a wife-beater might impact box office sales, there are other considerations that come when movie producers are looking for the right leading man. Will he show up on time – and does he have any personal issues that might interfere with the success of the film?" the source added.



 

 

The claims are merely based on the alleged report obtained by Radar Online. While there has been no proof of Depp abusing Heard, multiple recordings of Heard herself stating that she was physically abusive to Depp have been released. Additionally, several witnesses have also testified about Heard's abusive and violent behavior. The defamation trial resumes on May 16, in Fairfax, Virginia.
