The’s a Hollywood career more than just a few stars of the film are in danger this weekend as an extremely messy legal battle Johnny Depp against his ex-wife, amber heard, goes into the third dramatic week – the week which team will be heard in the driving seat.
The outcome of the case – a libel action under pressure Depp – can affect many of those involved. Other big names drawn, including Winona Ryder, Paul Bettany and Vanessa Paradisare in danger of bad reputation, will they appear as innocent bystanders or party supporters. Out major franchises family film series Aquaman, Fantastic beasts Harry Potter spin-off and Marvel superhero stable of stars can change as a result.
Depp is suing the publisher The sunNews group newspaper, and chief editor, Dan Wootton, to describe him as a “wife-beater” article from April 2018, which questioned the decision of Warner brothers to cast him in the film animals. A 57-year-old actor a household name after his role as Edward Scissorhands and Jack Sparrow in disney’s pirates of the Caribbean series, was served a restraining order in Los Angeles in 2016, shortly after their divorce, but he’s already made headlines with accusations that it was heard, not he, with serious violence and alcohol problems. As you know, last week I heard even accused of defecating on her bed. Heard, 34, is in London to give her version of the disturbing events that led to the end of his short, loud marriage ceremony. Her role of Aquaman can be no doubt, if unpleasant accusations Depp and his legal team stick.
Scholars also doubt that the media law will continue to be the case. “How the media can write about domestic violence can be changed forever,” said one legal source. “Journalists who believed that they understood the talk about how dangerous partner when they were already named an interim injunction in America.”
Depp, who has kept great condition, despite the recent legal action against business leaders, he claims cheated him of $650 million, is keen to hang on to the prospect of working on adventure films. The claims and counterclaims of violence and aggressive behavior is unlikely to play well with family audiences or with Disney and Warner Brothers, the studios that own the Rowling franchise.
In America, the actor who admitted a history of heavy drugs and drinking, is also suing ex-wife for $50M over The Washington Post the article is from December 2018, in which she said, survivors of domestic violence. Any reader, Depp claims that to assume that he was a rapist. The victory in the UK next month may help in the future confirmation in America.
On Thursday the trial in the High court of London took an unexpected turn when the rider, ex-fiancée of Depp and French singing star Paradis, Depp’s first wife and mother of two of his children, not to speak for him. The Duo released a press statement that Depp was not a cruel man, and should both act as witnesses. “Statements from the rider and Paradis were not part of the trial, as they were not offered for cross-examination,” the legal source added. “They seem to have been used in the framework of the media campaign without having to stand up in court.”
The decision not to appear in court has disappointed those looking for more star power, but the lawyers heard would like to ask these women about the timing of the end of their relationship with Depp. Heard CITES 14 cases of violence during their relationship, which Depp denies.
Ryder is now known for its role in the new drama channel HBO The Plot Against Americaafter her success in the series Strange Things. Explicit support Depp can be a dangerous move. Three other witnesses Depp appeared last week, despite the strong support of the testimony of some of his friends and former employees. Yitzchak Baruch, artist and longtime friend of Depp, who lives as a guest in a luxury residential complex of Los Angeles, said in court Friday he had not seen any evidence of harm to heard in may 2016 after the final separation of the couple.
Those in court that morning wondered if Depp may not appear. The actor was late to arrive, explaining that he has taken a morning meeting a movie in his hotel room. A court observer said about the same: “the security Service and officials of the court were not happy, they have a lot to handle, when the stars arrive.”
Peripheral damage can be also applied to English-born Bettany, who plays vision in Marvel the superhero franchise. A close friend of Depp, his name surfaced in court in connection with rough letters, in which Depp complained about his wife, he gave about drug use.
This week I heard appearing as a witness for NGN is expected to try to return it to the original charges of her former husband. In the lawyers last week, Depp made her own complaints about ill-treatment against her, the strategy is driven by the legal counsel Depp, Prosecutor Adam Waldman.
Many fans of Depp’s worldwide reputation, and the group regularly outside of court. Heard entourage includes her younger sister, Whitney, and amber’s girlfriend Bianca, Butti, along with leading Australian lawyer Jennifer Robinson, a friend of Amal Clooney.
This week, Robinson thought probably guess, Waldman and Depp tried to stir up trouble in high stakes legal example of “brainwashed”. The case continues.
