Former Fantastic Beasts actor Johnny Depp may think that he had already handed all the documentation needed for the defamation lawsuit required for the ex-couple’s multi-million dollar defamation legal battles but Aquaman’s Amber Heard is currently involving Disney and the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) with her case.
Based on the subpoenas submitted, Heard wants to learn more about what the LAPD and Disney know about the Pirates of the Caribbean actor. Deadline reported that Heard’s legal team wants the information produced in the coming weeks.
In Disney’s case, Heard and her legal team do not only want the paperwork of what was really happening with Depp during the filming, shooting, and re-shooting of the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Her legal team also wants a virtual deposition on February 18.
The documentation that Heard’s team wants from Disney in relation to Depp’s $50 million defamation lawsuit and Heard’s $100 million counterclaims is casting its net pretty wide. Heard’s team wants all information which can be documents and communications of any nature.
The information Heard wants is related to Depp’s incidents of drug or alcohol use, which includes suspected drug or alcohol use.
Her team is also looking for details for any details related to the delays or tardiness caused by Depp.
Not only that Heard is digging deeper as she also wants, any information on any incidents of Depp’s abuse or violence, as well as information that will impute the actor with any disagreements with any directors, producers, and writers with the filming, editing, and releasing of the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean.
Heard’s lawyers also want all the documents and communication that Disney and Depp had starting from January 1, 2018.
Depp sued Heard in the Virginia state court for $50 million in March 2019. This was after Heard wrote an op-ed piece on the Washinton Post about being a victim of domestic abuse.
The piece was published in December 2018 and never named Depp but the actor knew that Heard was targeting him.
As for the LAPD, the subpoena is asking the LAPD to provide the body cam footage from the two officers, as well as all documents and communications of any nature.
This also includes the 911 calls made in relation to the Eastern Columbia Building on May 21, 2016. The 911 calls were in relation to the pivotal incident leading to calls for a restraining order and the ex-couple’s divorce.
