“This frivolous action is just the latest of Johnny Depp’s repeated efforts to silence Amber Heard. She will not be silenced. Mr. Depp’s actions prove he is unable to accept the truth of his ongoing abusive behavior. But while he appears hell-bent on achieving self-destruction, we will prevail in defeating this groundless lawsuit and ending the continued vile harassment of my client by Mr. Depp and his legal team” said her lawyer Eric M. George in a statement.

Johnny described her allegations as “an elaborate hoax to generate positive publicity” to “advance her career” in the lawsuit.

    What kind of response is that? She has been invited to speak, no one wants to silence her. Why is she not denying these accusations? Because she was the abuser all along. She is doomed.

    Silenced ? She hasn’t shut up. It’s the only way she’s had any attention. Her legal team? Who is paying for that? Whose money is she now stealing?
    She should try doing something all on her very own and having only that money and being happy with just it even if it isn’t a large sum. It’s the only way for her to salvage anything.

    She is still ‘friendly’ with Elon Musk so there’s where she is getting some money.

    And here’s his lawyer’s response to that:

    “‘They want to silence Amber Heard’ doesn’t sound like a denial by Ms. Heard of Mr. Depp’s 40-page, evidence-packed complaint. We hardly intend to silence Ms. Heard—to the contrary, we intend to subpoena and compel evidence from her, her three hoax-assisting friends, and Elon Musk. We look forward to holding the overwhelming video, photographic and eyewitness evidence we finally possess up against Amber Heard’s (so far silent) attempts to explain the inexplicable.”

    He is in trouble with the SEC and had to pay huge fines. I don’t think he can help her plus he’s dating someone else.
