It's been weeks since Amber Heard and Johnny Depp's defamation trial wrapped up. However, some fans are still not over it. One of Depp's superfans, ThatUmbrellaGuy, accused the Aquaman star of making admissions about her allegations against Depp.
ThatUmbrellaGuy Claims Amber Heard Makes An Admission In A Recording
YouTuber ThatUmbrellaGuy has been branded one of Johnny Depp's avid supporters. In his most recent content titled Amber Heard Admits Depp Hoax in Bombshell AUDIO?!, he shared a recording and SMS of Heard's alleged admission.
The recording was among the audios that Daily Mail shared in February 2020. The full audio is 31-minute long and Depp and Heard can be heard arguing over the phone during their divorce. The alleged admission that ThatUmbrellaGuy shared can be heard starting at the 08:08 mark.
Heard's legal team told DailyMail it was recorded without her consent and was also allegedly "doctored," which were probably the reasons it was not used as evidence on the trial. The outlet said it decided to publish the entire audio for the readers to form their own opinions.
Epicstream cannot independently verify the authenticity of the recording.
In the recording, Heard seemingly admits to accusing Johnny Depp for fear of being evicted from his penthouse.
"Laura Wasser had proposed that I need to... not proposed, I'm sorry, said that I would have to leave. I'd be kicked out, I'd be evicted," the voice said in the recording referring to Depp's divorce lawyer. "So Rock and Josh and everybody evicted within 21 days."
Depp told his ex-wife that he had already told her she could stay for a couple more months. However, Heard insisted that she was worried about the 21 days ultimatum.
"No, I thought that too," Heard answered back. "They told me 21 days. That is part of why I accused you of doing that."
YouTuber Claims Amber Heard Made Another Admission In A Text
ThatUmbrellaGuy also shared a message that Heard allegedly sent to Johnny Depp. The purported text was from "Slim," Depp's endearment for Heard.
Epicstream could also not independently verify the authenticity of the message.
"Just confirmed that the cover letter is completely private and has nothing to do with any public record. (And only included the domestic violence/restraining order stuff because I called the lawyer when the cops were here and I didn't know what do to or why that happened and was scared)," the message read in a screenshot that the YouTuber shared on the video.
"She throws everyone under the bus. She's saying, 'I put this stuff in there because I panicked.' She's telling you flat out, 'I made this stuff up because I knew if I didn't do something in there Ohhh I was in trouble,'" ThatUmbrellaGuy remarked after reading the first portion of the message.
He noted that at the time, Heard "hasn't gone out and gotten a restraining order yet" but in his opinion, the actress was telling Depp "'You have four days to comply with what I want or else…" Heard also seemingly comforted Depp by noting that the letter was "private" and ThatUmbrellaGuy felt that Heard was telling Depp, "Hey, you can make this stuff disappear."
"But that letter is private. And unless you file as well (which I guess opens ups up to the press possibly catching it, as they have seemingly missed this one, at least for right now), then it can be revoked anytime. If you file separately as well, it's the same thing as far as being revoked is concerned but requires both our signatures and is a new filed public doc. for the records. At least that's my understanding of it," the message continued.
Heard also mentioned in the alleged text that she confirmed with her lawyer that the "quickly part" mentioned in the letter wasn't from her and she didn't ask for it and it was "not mandatory at all." She added, "We can take as long o quick as we want."
ThatUmbrellaGuy commented on the last line of the text, saying it was "the most telling" because Heard wrote that they could "do this or undue this."
"That's someone fleeing the relationship. You know what, we can stay around each other if we want. Yeah, well, yeah, admission everywhere," ThatUmbrellaGuy added.
What Is The Cover Letter Amber Is Referring To?
ThatUmbrellaGuy claimed that the cover letter Heard was referring to in the purported text was the letter that many called "a blackmail letter."
"This is the first time that not only she, but anyone has ever uttered the words DV along with JD [Johnny Depp]. Never had the two connected before, she brings up three claims in this," ThatUmbrellaGuy said.
The YouTuber read the content of the letter that he and many others called "the blackmail letter" and noted that there was a "threat" in it.
"It is very much a threat," he commented on the letter before adding how it sounded to him, "If you don't want us to ruin you publicly. Yeah, you just need to go along.'"
The letter also mentioned, "Amber wishes to work quickly towards private and amicable resolutions of all matters, but she will need Johnny's immediate cooperation to do so," and it ordered Depp to sign it by May 27 promptly. The letter was drafted on May 23, giving Depp four days to sign and return it. Otherwise, "we will have no alternative but to arrange for Johnny to be personally served," the letter continued.
The letter also detailed additional requests from Heard, including appropriate pendente lite support, exclusive use and possession of the black Range Rover, which Heard was using, and Depp to continue making all the payments for "any encumbrance thereon."
The letter also asked Depp for exclusive use of three of his penthouses and ordered the Pirates of the Caribbean actor to "continue to pay the mortgage, utilities, etc. associated therewith, and a contribution towards her reasonable and necessary attorney's fees in the amount of $100,000 and $25,000 for forensic accounting costs."
The letter also included a proposed list of private retired judicial officers whom Heard's camp preferred to be assigned with the case. "We are indeed hopeful that we can swiftly work out mutually acceptable short and long term solutions of the public eye," the letter concluded.
ThatUmbrellaGuy commented, "This is very much a threat here. They've admitted why this exists. They've said that many times, but even more than that, they've admitted that this threat — it is not real."
Although ThatUmbrellaGuy is entitled to his own opinion and Johnny Depp won his defamation case against Amber Heard, one should note that she filed a countersuit after Depp's former lawyer, Adam Waldman, called her allegations against Depp a "hoax" and she partially won. The jury awarded Heard $2 million in damages.
Who Is ThatUmbrellaGuy?
He was mentioned during the defamation trial between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp in Virginia. Heard's lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, mentioned "That Umbrella Guy" when she cross-examined Morgan Night, who previously owned Hicksville Trailer Park. The attorney described him as "pro-Depp," Sky News reported.
Some insiders also called him a "Johnny Depp superfan." However, he denied it.
"Nah, I'm the thing you mainstream media hacks should've been all along. Someone seeking the truth," he wrote on Twitter.
ThatUmbrellaGuy's true identity has remained unknown. However, in one post on Twitter, he shared that his mother-in-law was aware of his online persona.
"My mother-in-law called me yesterday and said, 'hey, YOU'RE the one mentioned in the Johnny Depp Amber Heard trial! YOU'RE the Umbrella Man!'" he wrote. "LOL - fun times! Fun times indeed."
