Johnny Depp has cited the DC Aquaman films as a defense against Amber Heard’s Lawyers.
The ongoing legal battles between Johnny Depp and his former wife, Amber Heard, continue to be a point of fascination for fans of the two actors. It all started when Amber Heard posted an op-ed where she talked about being a survivor of domestic abuse. Later on, the London-based newspaper, The Sun published an article calling Depp a wife beater. The Pirates of the Caribbean star, however, was not taking these accusations lying down.
Johnny Depp went on to launch two different lawsuits. The first was against The Sun for the article in question and the second against Amber Heard herself. The first case wrapped up back in November of 2020 in favor of The Sun. The case against the Aquaman star, however, was allowed to move forward and is currently playing out in Fairfax, Virginia.
In the latest addition to the ongoing legable battles between the two, a text exchange was mentioned by Amber Heard’s lawyers that tried to portray Johnny Depp as manipulative and controlling. Heard texted Depp “coffee meetings now, will be home soon.” to which he allegedly responded with anger:
“No goddamn meetings. No movies. Why? Why do you deviate from our agreement? What species of meeting? F-ck it. Just tell me when you get home.”
Johnny Depp responded by stating that the text in question wasn’t angry in nature and that he had nothing to do with impending her career, citing Aquaman as proof of that:
“It seems as though we had an agreement to do something together. I’m actually asking what species of meeting. So this is not necessarily an angry text, it’s just, ‘Why do you deviate from our agreement?’
It’s not about her doing films. How do you think she got Aquaman, sir?”
Here is the synopsis for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom:
When an ancient power is unleashed, Aquaman must forge an uneasy alliance with an unlikely ally to protect Atlantis, and the world, from irreversible devastation.
