Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are currently going through trying times following their recent dramatic breakup, which was characterized by cheating and abuse accusations. According to a report by the Daily Mail, Johnny and Amber clashed on the night of their breakup after the latter confronted the Pirates of the Caribbean actor about being unfaithful.
The following is an excerpt of the report.
“Johnny had a night out and Amber had a feeling he had been with someone. She questioned him about it and he blew up at her, got in her face yelling, chased her upstairs. Amber was scared,’ the source said.
“The insider said that Depp did not admit to anything, but apologized for his reaction and Heard ‘ultimately forgave him.”
Screenshots of text messages between Amber Heard and Johnny’s assistant Stephen Deuters later emerged and appeared to suggest that Depp had on several occasions abused his now estranged wife. In light of this, Johnny’s assistant reported that he had nothing to do with the texts and at no time had he talked with Amber about his employer’s abusive behavior.
Fast forward to current events and Johnny Depp has apparently bagged a huge sum of money running into millions after auctioning his paintings at Christie’s auction house, which is situated in London. He sold his collection of paintings by Jean-Michel Basquiat at a considerable profit and, in total, got some $15.8 million for them.
The following is an excerpt of the report on this by Stuff.
“Wednesday’s auction saw Depp enjoy a hugely profitable return on two of the Basquiat works. While one of the pieces, Pork, was expected to reach upwards of £2.5 million, it eventually sold for £5.1 million after receiving a phone bid from Elaine Kwok, Christie’s director of education Asia, and resulted in being the top sale of the night.
“Johnny Depp has auctioned off millions of dollars worth of Jean-Michel Basquiat paintings amid his messy divorce from Amber Heard. Meanwhile, another piece, entitled Self-Portrait, was estimated to reach between £1-£1.5 million, but sold for £3,554,500 to a different buyer.”
Johnny once stated, “Nothing can replace the warmth and immediacy of Basquiat’s poetry, or the absolute questions and truths that he delivered.”
Away from that, new information about Amber Heard’s past has emerged in regards to a 2009 case in which she was reported to have assaulted then-girlfriend Tasya van Ree. The following was the report by TMZ.
“According to law enforcement sources and documents, Amber and Tasya van Ree got in an argument on September 14, 2009 at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Amber allegedly grabbed and struck Tasya in the arm, which upset Tasya and triggered the arrest.
“Amber was arrested and booked for misdemeanor domestic violence. Her mug shot was taken and she appeared in court the following day.”
However, the prosecutor is reported to have declined moving forward with the case, with the judge stating that the case could be refiled within the two-year limit. Following news on this, Amber Heard’s former girlfriend denied the claims while speaking to the Huffington Post.
The following is the report.
“In a statement to The Huffington Post, courtesy of Heard’s rep, van Ree writes that Heard was “wrongfully accused” over an incident which was “misinterpreted and over-sensationalized by two individuals in a power position.”
The site is awaiting a statement from Amber Heard’s lawyer.
