Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have been involved in a legal battle for several years now. It seems like Depp is considering a variety of strategies to bolster his case. In order to strengthen his case, it appears that Johnny will use his upcoming trial with his ex-wife Amber Heard to question whether Elon Musk is the father of her child.
Johnny Depp intends to use his upcoming divorce trial with ex-wife Amber Heard to question whether Elon Musk fathered her child. According to OK!, sources connected to the case reveal the Pirates of the Caribbean star will inquire about the baby Heard welcomed via surrogate in 2021.
Depp is suing Heard over a 2019 Washington Post op-ed she wrote about domestic violence. She never mentioned her ex in the piece. Despite the fact that he has not been identified, he claims that the article violated a non-disclosure agreement they signed as part of their divorce settlement.
The actor accused his ex-wife of destroying his reputation and is suing her for $50 million in damages. The trial is set to begin on April 11th. Both celebrities have informed the court that they intend to testify. Musk, James Frano, Ellen Barkin, and Paul Bettany are among the names on the recently released witness list, as are representatives from Disney and the Los Angeles Police Department.
Depp accuses Musk and Franco of having affairs with Heard while she was married to him. Heard and Musk, he asserts, only waited a month after his wedding to start dating. Heard and Musk began dating after her divorce from Depp was finalized in 2017. The disgraced actor and tech billionaire are not scheduled to appear in court, but they will testify via video conference.
Heard does not intend to question Bettany, but will present evidence from his infamous text conversation with Depp. Bettany and Depp exchanged text messages in which they discussed “burning” and “drowning” Heard. Bettany even admitted that the texts looked bad without context.
The outlet further reported that, “Depp and his legal team will have no issue in probing whether or not Musk’s testimony in support of Amber is skewed and if it is why.”
“Depp and his lawyers know full well that the Hollywood rumor mill has been in overdrove with claims that Musk was Heard’s test-tube baby daddy—whether he liked it, or not.”
“In a court of law and with truth at the center of the case, such a subject cannot — and will not — be off-limits. It could force Elon and Amber to confess who really is the dad of the little girl.”
Let’s see what happens in court when Johnny and Amber square off. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
