Amber Heard Requests Aquaman Isn't Mentioned During Upcoming Johnny Depp Defamation Case

Amber Heard Requests Aquaman Isn't Mentioned During Upcoming Johnny Depp Defamation Case

Amber Heard has allegedly asked for Aquaman not to be mentioned during the upcoming Johnny Depp defamation case.

Amber Heard has allegedly requested for Johnny Depp to be banned from mentioning Aquaman 2 in their upcoming court case.

It has been alleged that Heard has requested that her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, not speak about Aquaman 2 in the upcoming defamation court case.

While the alleged request may seem odd, TikToker Charles Pedro has explained why it's likely being made.

Depp's defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife is scheduled for April 11, in Fairfax County, Virginia, after Heard tried to have the case thrown out four times – all of which have been unsuccessful.

Depp won the right to sue Heard for $50 million in the lawsuit last year after claiming she caused damage to his career.

The claim comes from Depp as Heard was said to have signed an agreement 'saying she would never talk about Johnny Depp to the press again' following their divorce.

Heard received $7 million in her divorce from Depp, which she claims to have donated.

But following the divorce, Heard spoke to the press with allegations that Depp was abusive, which led to the actor being fired from multiple roles he was cast in at the time, including his starring role in the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise.

This resulted in an estimated loss of $100 million in earnings for the actor.

So, what does Aquaman 2 have to do with the case?

Right now, the film – which is set to be released later this year – is said to be the only work that Heard currently has lined up and there have allegedly been concerns that Depp bringing up the film could impact how it does at the box office.

As such, Heard has reportedly requested that Depp not be allowed to talk about Aquaman 2 at all in court.

Court documents have been shared on Twitter that show how Heard is trying to prevent Depp from mentioning Aquaman 2 in their next legal face off.

James Franco and Elon Musk are also being disposed as part of the defamation case.

Franco's deposition will allegedly focus on whether he had an affair with Heard, while she was married to Depp, Page Six reports.

The defamation case centres around an op-ed that Heard wrote for the Washington Post in 2018, where she described herself as a victim of domestic violence.

Although she did not mention Depp by name in the piece, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor has alleged that it clearly refers to him.

Depp has strongly denied any abuse took place.
