Johnny Depp wanted to EXPOSE Amber Heard's time as 'exotic dancer' reveal unsealed court docs
The defamation trial of the century, Johnny Depp v Amber Heard, can't seem to find its end. From challenging the verdict to questioning the jury's competence, we have seen it all ever since the jury gave their final word, declaring Johnny Depp as the winning party. Now, thousands of documents related to the case were unsealed over the weekend. The unsealed documents showed that Depp's legal team wanted to unearth Heard's alleged past as an 'exotic dancer' and present that in court.
The documents paint a behind-the-scene picture, where the notions from both legal teams could be seen. For example, Depp's legal team asked to exclude his medical history, and some motions asked to present potentially dangerous information that could damage Amber Heard's image, as verified by the New York Post. The 965-page document filed on March 28 mentions a particular claim that talks about Amber Heard's time as an 'exotic dancer' way before she met Johnny Depp. The 'Aquaman' actress' legal team claimed Depp's legal team wanted to talk about “Amber’s brief stint as an exotic dancer years before she met Mr Depp."
Was Amber Heard an exotic dancer?
We know that previously Johnny Depp has allegedly called Amber Heard a "50 cent stripper" in his texts. During the trial, it was revealed that Depp wrote in a text to talent agent Christian Carino, allegedly sent in August 2016, "I cannot wait to have this waste of a c**t guzzler out of my life!!! I met an f*****g sublime little Russian here…Which made me realize the time I blew on that 50 cent stripper.”
Following the same lines, Heard's lawyers further wrote: "Mr Depp attempting to frivolously and maliciously suggest or imply that Ms Heard was at one time an escort.” Her lawyers also wrote in the now-unsealed document that Depp was in a mood to attack Whitney as well saying he wanted to pull up "Amber Heard’s sister Whitney’s reality show video” and “Whitney and Amber’s past romantic relationships." The jury's final verdict included a hefty award for Johnny Depp of $10.35 million as they established that he was indeed affected by the 2018 op-ed written by Amber Heard. However, she was also offered $2 million as it was announced that she too was defamed.
