During Johnny Depp’s trial, Amber Heard’s friend was thrown out of court, according to reports.
Heard and Depp’s trial has taken an unexpected turn. The $50 million defamation claim against Aquaman star Johnny Depp is being heard in Fairfax, Virginia. Amber’s close friend, British music writer Eve Barlow, was thrown out of court, according to Page Six of report.
The judge reportedly reprimanded her for texting and live-tweeting from the front row of the courtroom, generally reserved for legal counsel. According to a source, Eve pretended to be part of Amber’s legal team. She even sought to help Johnny’s witness Gina Deuters throughout the trial. Gina is Stephen Deuters’ wife.
Eve allegedly instructed Amber’s lawyers to convince Judge Penney S. Azcarate Gina was a ‘compromised’ witness. The journalist apparently brought up Gina’s recent social media remark about the trial. The post was made in 2021, before the couple’s London trial against The Sun.
Asked if she had viewed any films of the trial before testifying, Gina said she had, and the court dismissed her. Johnny’s lawyers sought a permanent ban on Eve from the courtroom. On Twitter, she was tweeting live from my courtroom, Judge Azcarate added. I know they took her out for texting.
A 2018 op-ed by Amber for The Washington Post has Johnny and Amber in court. Amber spoke candidly about experiencing domestic violence. The Pirates of the Caribbean star claims his ex-wife framed him to get a large divorce payment. Johnny’s career has already been harmed by the op-ed. After the Washington Post piece came out, Johnny was kicked out of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.
