In recent years, the #MeToo movement has taught us about how power like this works, not just in Hollywood but in all kinds of institutions — workplaces, places of worship or simply in particular communities. In every walk of life, women are confronting these men who are buoyed by social, economic and cultural power. And these institutions are beginning to change.
“Amber Heard’s #TimesUp counsel Roberta Kaplan continues her discovery abuses, bizarrely invoking the name of her former client Harvey Weinstein and a 2004 film he produced in hopes of distracting from Amber Heard’s own taped confessions of violence and abuse hoaxes,” Depp’s lawyer Adam Waldman said in a statement to The Post Tuesday.
“But Weinstein’s real association is with Roberta Kaplan herself,” Waldman said.
Waldman claimed that Kaplan and Tina Tchen, the founders of the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, “have a client list of accused abusers and hoaxers that includes Jussie Smollett, Harvey Weinstein and Amber Heard.”
Barresi said he was hired to look into Depp's 'follies and vices' in the hopes those who spoke out against Depp would testify in the upcoming defamation cases
But Barresi told DailyMail.com he couldn't find anyone who had a bad word to say against Depp, 56
He said: 'In fact, they couldn't say enough about his ever flowing outpouring of generosity and tender heart'
Some had harsh words for Heard, 33, who filed for divorce in May 2016
Depp's friend Jonathan Shaw told Barresi about Heard: 'The only thing I would be willing to help that gold digging w***e do is help load the gun she wanted to use to blow her f**king brains out'
Depp's legal team obtained testimony of celebrity stylist, Samantha McMillen. McMillen says she has helped style Heard for "major events" since 2014.
Specifically, she describes styling the star for an appearance on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" on December 16, 2015, after the actress alleged Depp had given her two black eyes during an argument that occurred the previous night.
"Throughout the day of December 16, 2015, I could see clearly that Amber Heard did not have any visible marks, bruises, cuts, or injuries to her face or any other part of her body," McMillen testified.
Heard described the alleged incident later, while seeking a restraining order against the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star, and claimed he had split her lip and given her two black eyes. She claims the alleged incident caused her to "truly feared for my life."
Amber Heard -- who claims she was the victim of domestic violence by husband Johnny Depp -- was herself arrested for domestic violence against her then-domestic partner ... TMZ has learned.
According to law enforcement sources and documents, Amber and Tasya van Ree got in an argument on September 14, 2009 at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Amber allegedly grabbed and struck Tasya in the arm, which upset Tasya and triggered the arrest.
Amber was arrested and booked for misdemeanor domestic violence. Her mug shot was taken and she appeared in court the following day.
The housekeeper thought the poop was too large to be from a small dog — that it appeared to come from a human, the Mirror said. Moreover, a source close to the 55-year-old actor told the Mirror that there was “strong, photographic evidence that connected Amber to the feces.” The source said the feces was left as a “prank.”
However, Depp requested the subpoena, and Waldman told the New York Post: "Amber Heard's #TimesUp attorney, Roberta Kaplan, continues her abuse of discovery, strangely invoking the name of her former client Harvey Weinstein and a 2004 film which he produced in the hope of distracting himself from Amber Heard's own recorded confessions of violence and abuse deceive. "
He added: "Weinstein's true partnership is with Roberta Kaplan herself," suggesting that Kaplan and Tina Tchen, the founders of the Time & # 39; s Up Legal Defense Fund, "have a list of clients of accused abusers and counterfeiters who It includes Jussie Smollett, Harvey Weinstein and Amber Heard.

There is some justice, small though it may be. She was removed from the casting of Aquaman 2 because of this.
Hopefully, she'll face some real consequences after all this is settled. Gold digger, cheater and liar. Trifecta of nastiness.
It’s now been revealed that Amber Heard could end up being fired from Aquaman 2 and might even face three years in fail if proven to be guilty.
‘Guilty of what?’ I hear you ask. Good question.
I was revealed via The International Business Times that Amber Heard could face three years in jail if she’s found guilty of faking evidence.
Specifically, faking evidence against Johnny Depp.
On March 23, Johnny Depp will take on News Group Newspapers over a 2018 article in The Sun that cast him as a "wife beater." The publisher of that article questioning how J.K. Rowling could be "genuinely happy" about Depp's role in Fantastic Beasts intends to defend itself from a defamation claim by proving that Depp did, in fact, beat his ex-wife Amber Heard, causing her to suffer significant injury. As a result, details about the stormy relationship between Depp and Heard will be publicly aired for the first time, with Depp attempting to show he incurred damage to his reputation as a top movie star.
The audio from the four-year-old clip buried among legal files was recently unearthed by the Daily Mail.
"Hi, I need to report an assault right now happening at 849 Broadway at the Eastern building, it's penthouse three," the caller says in the 2016 call, referencing Depp and Heard's shared home in downtown Los Angeles.
"I happen to know that it's happening and I just need to remain anonymous."
"So what did she say that this guy assaulted or hit her?" the LAPD operator allegedly replied before asking for more detail.
"Physically assaulting her, yeah," the caller responds.
"Send somebody up there please," the person urged, repeating the location of the couple's home before the recording abruptly ends.
The shocking call appears to have been placed around the time Heard claims her ex-husband became enraged, threw a cell phone at her face, and ripped out chunks of her hair.
Heard's attorney said that phone records and police department logs corroborate Heard's accounts of domestic violence she endured before filing for divorce, her attorney said.
However, Depp's legal team refutes this claim, saying the recent audio raises discrepancies in Heard and her allies' claims of abuse.
His attorney is also questioning the caller's identity, saying that the female voice on the audio clip doesn't belong to iO Tillett Wright.

Thankfully my brother's psycho chick ended up moving to another state and he was able to get his life back together. That was 20 years ago and after beating some substance abuse issues he's doing ok.
You gotta feel for Johnny Depp, poor guy was put through the ringer big time. He seems like one of the few genuine nice guys in Hollywood. He's been known to spend time down in my town incognito just hanging out at the coast and going to the neighborhood coffee shop. He's very low-key so nobody bothers him and he is just able to chill. I've never personally run into him but plenty of people I know have.
