Did Lisa Bonet want Amber Heard FIRED from 'Aquaman 2'? Split from Jason Momoa fuels rumors
While there is no confirmation from any official source, there have been rumors that Bonet was looking to get Heard removed from 'Aquaman 2'
Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet's 16-year marriage ending unexpectantly has shocked many of their fans. After the 'Aquaman' actor announced his spit from his wife, rumors surfaced about how Bonet wanted to get Momoa's costar Amber Heard fired from the second installment of the hit DC movie franchise.
In his Instagram post, the 'Game Of Thrones' actor stated, "We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times… A revolution is unfolding ~and our family is of no exception… feeling and growing from the seismic shifts occurring. And so~ We share our Family news~ That we are parting ways in marriage. We share this not because we think it’s newsworthy ~ But so that~ as we go about our lives we may do so with dignity and honesty." He went on to add, "The love between us carries on, evolving in ways it wishes to be known and lived. We free each other ~to be who we are learning to become. Our devotion unwavering to this sacred life & our Children."
Did Lisa Bonet want Amber Heard fired?
While there is no confirmation from any official source, there have been consistent rumors about Bonet being less than happy about Amber Heard returning in 'Aquaman 2' and wanted her fired. Heard, who is Johnny Depp's ex-wife, was allegedly flirting with the 'Justice League' actor on the sets of 'Aquaman' 2, which apparently made Bonet jealous. Apparently, she wanted the pair to maintain distance as she had her doubts that Heard would do absolutely anything to advance her career. If this was indeed the case, it was never proven as Bonet never showed any kind of public outrage.
Heard's ongoing public and legal battles with her ex-spouse, who happened to reportedly be Bonet's good friend, also factored in her desire to keep the actress at arm's length. Depp continues to accuse Heard of domestic violence and has even filed a $50 million defamation suit against her after she branded him a "wife-beater." Bonet's concerns regarding her marriage also arose from the actress’ history of getting entangled with male performers with whom she has acted in the past. However, despite what Bonet might or might not have wanted, Heard is still playing the role of Mera in the Aquaman franchise and continued shooting with Momoa for the upcoming installment. The film will release on December 16, 2022.
Petition to get Amber Heard removed
Fans of the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor have been wanting to get Heard fired from the movie franchise for ages now. The petition filed on Change.org has already gathered over a million signatures so far. "Amber Heard has been exposed as a domestic abuser by Johnny Depp. In his $50 million lawsuit, Johnny Depp describes many incidents of domestic abuse that he suffered at the hands of his (then) wife Amber Heard, including one incident where she punched him twice in the face and another where she shattered his finger with a vodka bottle, and his finger had to be surgically reattached. He will bear the scar from that for the rest of his life." the petition reads.
It demands: "As Amber Heard is a known and proven domestic abuser, Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment should and must remove Heard from their Aquaman 2 film project. They must not ignore the suffering of Heard's victims, and must not glamorize a domestic abuser."
