Now James Franco Is Involved In The Messy Legal Battle Between Amber Heard & Johnny Depp
According to The Blast, Johnny's legal team have issued a subpoena to James after he was caught on surveillance video with Amber after an alleged fight which ultimately ended their marriage. Apparently, the footage shows Amber and James in the elevator of Johnny's apartment concealing their faces from the camera.
Johnny's lawyer told The Blast, "we are interested in James Franco and Elon Musk as fact witnesses because we have evidence they are men who saw Amber Heard's face in the days and nights between when she claimed Mr. Depp smashed her face in on May 21 and when she went to court with painted on 'bruises' to obtain a temporary restraining order on May 27."
In March, Johnny filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Amber, claiming her abuse allegations were an "elaborate hoax."
Amber's attorney calls this turn of events "the latest of Johnny Depp's repeated efforts to silence Amber Heard."
"She will not be silenced," he told Access. "Mr. Depp's actions prove he is unable to accept the truth of his ongoing abusive behaviour. But while he appears hell-bent on achieving self-destruction, we will prevail in defeating this groundless lawsuit and ending this vile harassment of my client by Mr. Depp and his legal team."
