Amber Heard, the actress of “Aquaman,” may have lost the legal battle, but she is not yet conceding defeat: She has dared Johnny Depp to do his own interview if he has a problem with her explosive appearance on NBC’s “Dateline” in which she doubles down on her assault allegations.
Amber Heard Invites Johnny Depp and His Crew to an Interview if They “Have a Problem”
She issued Johnny Depp an Amber Alert. Friday, hours before her explosive interview with “Today” show host Savannah Guthrie was scheduled to air, Heard, 36, issued the dare.
A spokeswoman for Heard told The Post, “If Mr. Depp or his team have a problem with this, we recommend that Johnny himself sit down with Savannah Guthrie for an hour and answer all of her questions.”
Her remarks follow a 20-minute preview piece on Peacock that depicted Heard providing the NBC show with multiple records from a doctor that “indicated years, years of real-time explanations of what was happening.”
“My doctor, to whom I reported the abuse, took a binder’s worth of notes dating back to 2011 from the very beginning of my relationship,” Heard said to Guthrie during the interview. Her notes reflected years and years of explanations of what was occurring in real-time.
According to “Dateline,” the on-screen documents outline a 2012 incident in which Depp allegedly “struck her, pushed her against a wall, and threatened to kill her.”
Eight months later, according to the documentary, Depp allegedly “torn her nightgown and tossed her on the bed,” and in 2013, he allegedly “threw her against a wall and threatened to kill her.”
In the highly publicized trial, however, Heard’s legal team was unable to use the documents as evidence because the court ruled them “hearsay.”
A spokeswoman for Depp, 59, has already replied to the interview, telling “Dateline” that the “Donnie Brasco” star merely wants to go on with his life following his defamation victory.
“It’s unfortunate that while Johnny is trying to move on with his life, the defendant and her team are back to rehashing, reimagining, and relitigating matters that have already been decided by the court and a verdict that was unanimously and unambiguously in Johnny’s favor,” they said in a statement.
Earlier this month, Depp was granted more than $10 million in a defamation lawsuit. The stunning revelations follow the verdict. A Fairfax, Virginia jury found Heard responsible for defaming Depp in a 2018 Washington Post opinion piece in which she represented herself as a victim of domestic violence.
The jury also determined that one of Depp’s attorneys defamed Heard, but only gave her $2 million in damages. However, analysts stated that it will be some time before the actress is required to pay.
In spite of this, Heard stated in a Tuesday interview preview that she “stands by every word” she spoke during her losing defamation trial evidence.
Surprisingly, despite the disturbing allegations of abuse, she made against Depp, the actress stated that she “definitely” still loves the “Finding Neverland” actor.
The “Rum Diary” actress remarked about Depp, “I adored him with all my heart.” “Despite my best efforts, I was unable to salvage a badly shattered relationship. I harbor no animosity or ill will against him.”
