Jennifer Howell lays into 'these people' Amber Heard and Whitney Henriquez over Johnny Depp 'hoax'
"These people literally called people I know and asked them to avoid being subpoenaed and to lie about me if they happened to get a subpoena," said Howell referring to Heard and Henriquez.
The woman who disputed Amber Heard's sister Whitney Henriquez's version of events about the stairwell brawl with Johnny Depp believes the court was right to award the case to the actor. Jennifer Howell, who lived with Whitney during Heard's relationship with Depp, told Radar she's glad the 'Aquaman' actress didn't win.
Howell responded to the jury's decision to award Depp $15 million after a 6-week defamation trial against his ex-wife, pointing to one word in particular from Depp's ex-attorney that made Heard $2 million richer. "They recognized the plan as a hoax,'" A photo of Depp's former lawyer, Adam Waldman, was captioned by Heard and Whitney's ex-friend. HOAX is defined as a joking or malicious deception. While the jury ruled in Depp's favor, Heard was awarded $2 million after determining that the actor was liable for defamation because of a statement Waldman made. He repeatedly called her abuse allegations "a hoax." "Hoax" was a great way to describe it, according to Howell."
"Everything he has ever said has been the truth," she insisted, adding that Waldman was "being rather kind using that word for this conspiracy to commit fraud against another human being." Howell asserted that Heard and her sister did everything to keep "the truth" hidden from her. "These people literally called people I know and asked them to avoid being subpoenaed and to lie about me if they happened to get a subpoena. They did this for no other reason than I was telling the truth. Me, a very small part of this thing," she declared.
She continued, "Imagine being the person that let them live for free for years, allowed them a place to have their extra-marital affairs, gave and gave only to be the target of their extortion. I have been destroyed over this and I was not the one they sought out to target." She added, turning her attention back to Depp's ex-attorney, @adam.waldman told the truth and some people can’t handle the truth. Those people wage a lawsuit against him to keep him out of the courtroom because they know he knows what they have done."
Howell also railed against Heard's lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, who claimed the jury was denied access to more evidence of abuse. "The most hilarious thing of all is now Elaine is on her press tour doing the same thing they accused Adam of but Adam was telling the truth and Elaine is telling lies. Where is the mainstream media now?" she stated.
Bredehoft addressed the loss by announcing her intention to appeal the verdict, as Radar Online reported. Howell has previously spoken out about inconsistencies in Whitney's vague memory of what happened with Depp, particularly the infamous staircase brawl. Howell refuted Whitney's testimony about the battle during the UK "wife-beater" trial in her declaration. "I have learned that Whitney testified in court July 23 in London about a violent incident in March 2015 on the stars at Johnny Depp's penthouse," her confession stated. "She testified that Johnny supposedly hit Amber and Whitney on the stars at Johnny's downtown penthouse."

"Then Whitney said she had to go live with her employer where she had to sleep on their floor. I am that employer. This is not what I was told to be true," it resumed. Howell went on to say later in the declaration, "Whitney said when she tried to intervene to stop Amber from going after Johnny, Amber nearly pushed Whitney down the stairs. She told me she was worried Amber 'was going to kill Johnny.'"
