Heard running out of road

Amber Heard is complaining that Johnny Depp is trying to stall the divorce proceedings. She and her lawyer have filed court documents this week alleging that the Pirates star is delaying the inevitable.

The reason she’s complaining?  Because Depp has requested court ordered non-disclosure on every aspect of the proceedings, meaning that Heard can’t flap her gums about Johnny’s finances, any documents filed during the divorce, and how much she does (or doesn’t) get out of him. And if she does leak anything, she’ll face a %100,000 fine for each incident. That means that she can’t “leak” any information to the process without having it hit her where she lives: in the wallet. No more pissing and moaning about him in the press to garner sympathy and jockey for a higher payday, or it’ll cost her.

Personally, I think that’s a smart move on Depp’s part.

What I really think is bothering Heard is that she’s about to be deposed. She’ll finally have to back up her accusations that Depp physically abused her. Until now, she’s been able to get by with dubious photos of (possibly) painted-on bruises, emotionally manipulated testimony from people that weren’t even there, and just because she said so. Now, she’ll be forced to put up or shut up.

While Heard complains that Depp is stalling for time, Heard herself has delayed having to give her deposition more than once by sniggling over paperwork and then by claiming that she can’t be deposed because it would conflict with her work schedule.
Sooner or later, though, she’s going to run out of ways to put it off. Much as she’d like to get everything her way, she’s eventually going to have to give that deposition, and she’s going to have to prove her allegations.

Like with any fraud that’s forced to substantiate their fabricated accusations, I don’t think she’ll be able to prove Jack Squat. My money says that she’ll demur, abandoning the allegations, claiming:
1) that she just wants it over with
2) that it’s too painful to revisit
3) that she doesn’t want to damage his career because she still cares about him
4) that some kind of technical difficulty occurred and the proof is gone

or, like most con artists, by trying to redirect attention somewhere else. I wouldn’t put it past her to come up with some new injury to get out of it. Some dramatic new illness, like fainting from starving herself (the DRAMA!)
Or a traffic accident (PITY PARTY!)
Or a stalker that forces her to hide out, or even attacks her ( the HORROR!)
presenting herself as a(n ongoing) victim to dodge the fact that she doesn’t have any proof to offer to back up her allegations. Playing the victim to avoid proving that she’s a victim.

We’ve seen the type before, haven’t we? Smoke and mirrors when facts are called for.

I’m sitting here with a tub of popcorn waiting to see what she comes up with to get out of it. She’s got a flair for the pitifully dramatic, but she hasn’t exactly displayed a dazzling gift for imagination or execution. So far, everything she’s tried  has fallen flat. Screaming “Stop hitting me!” when he’s nowhere near her. Claiming that he hit her and tore up the house, while first responders don’t find any evidence of injury or struggle. Not a rocket scientist, she.

As of right now, her deposition is set for the weekend of August 6th. We’ll just have to see what she comes up with to get out of it.

Whatever she cooks up, I’m sure it’ll be amusing in a train wreck kind of way.

Even more amusing would be if she can’t put it off anymore, can’t back up her claims, and gets yanked back on her chain for it. I would LOVE to see her charged with filing a false report, lying to the police, wasting first responders’ time and resources. And I’d love to see her slapped with defamation charges. Scamming gold-digger, meet Karma.

I’ll be over here like:


Weak leaks

It looks like Amber Heard needs to shift attention away from the fact that she’s been spotted hanging out with her wife. Now, rumors are spiraling that Heard is dating Tesla billionaire Elon Musk.
Elon Musk Amber Heard DatingWitnesses have spotted Heard coming and going from a Florida hotel suite leased to Musk.

It’s one of three things. Either:

1) Heard is leaking this “news” about her dating Elon Musk in order to cloud the fact that she’s back in her wife’s arms. What better way to do that than to show that she’s dating somebody else all together? And a MAN, at that. Cast attention as far away from her (obviously female) wife.
2) Heard really is dating Musk. Traded a measly millionaire like Depp in for an even bigger payday with a billionaire like Musk. Ever the gold-digger, on to bigger and better rewards. If so, she’d better get ’em in while she can. She’s not getting any younger. A pretty face and lithe, supple body only last so long before the ravages of time start to take a toll.
3) It’s pure fiction, fabricated by the tabloids to keep Heard’s name in the headlines and sell magazines.

Given Heard’s penchant for manipulating the press in order to further her own agenda, I find it highly doubtful that she’s the innocent victim of… well, anything.

Musk’s reps have rushed to insist that there’s nothing going on. Sure, the suite was leased to him, but he wasn’t in it. He had rented out a bungalow instead, and just let Heard (and her sister) use the suite so that they could have access to the hotel’s services, including the pool. He was busy at a rocket expo. No time for a romp with the lovely Heard.

My money says that, no matter which version of the story is true, Heard is far from the poor Bambi-in-headlights bystander she might want to appear as. I maintain my opinion that Heard only courted (even wed) Depp to get money to finance her future together with her wife, whom she loves dearly.

Given Heard’s shady shenanigans, it would take an act of extreme   import to make me believe otherwise.


The Democratic National Convention begins tonight. Let’s show ’em what we’ve got, America. The people decide who’s president. Not the paychecks.

Diggin’ for gold

Johnny Depp has requested confidentiality in his ongoing divorce proceedings from ex wife Amber Heard. According to his request, Heard previously agreed to maintain privacy, but has refused to sign anything to that effect, and has repeatedly pandered to the press.

Well, of course she is. The worse Heard can make Depp look in the court of public opinion, the more money she can wring out of him. Duh.

Included in the statement, Heard is digging around for every bit of gold she can, nosing around in Johnny’s finances from before she came along, and after she left him. According to California state law, she might be entitled to any assets the couple accrued during their marriage. That’s it. She can’t touch anything he earned before they wed, or after they split. But she’s poking around, requesting financial information from before they got married. And she’s curious about his finances from his current tour with The Hollywood Vampires, Johnny’s band with Alice Cooper and (Aerosith’s) Joe Perry.

It seems Heard is also trying to acquire financial information fro Depp’s band-mates. Probably to find out how much they earned in a bid to find out how much Depp has earned. The greedy gold-digger has no right whatsoever to find out what they earned, or what Depp has earned from the band. Their tour started after her split from him. It’s simply none of her business. But that’s not stopping her from digging around.

With a confidentiality order in pace, it’s likely that we’ll never know the details of whatever settlement they reach. But I can see Johnny paying her more than she’s worth just to get rid of her. I don’t blame him, to a degree. It’s completely understandable to want to be rid of such a toxic, manipulative shrew. Nobody needs that shit.

At the same time, I’d like to see Johnny stand up and force her hand. Make her prove those allegations of spousal abuse. Make her settle for exactly what she’s entitled to, and not a penny more. Chances are good that with an accounting of their combined earnings and expenditures during the 15 months of their marriage, she wouldn’t walk away with much.

That, in my opinion, would be justice.

If she had proof of abuse, he’d already be in jail. Ergo, she doesn’t have squat.

It would be glorious if she walked away with nothing. She spent years whoring herself out to him, maneuvering herself into a marriage with him, all in order to walk away with a major payday to finance her future with her wife, Taysa Van Ree. I would personally LOVE to see the gold-digger walk away with nothing for all her effort.

But not everybody has the constitution to wage a battle like that. He’ll probably pay her to make her go away so that he can move forward with his life.

I only hope that his future brightens up. Drunk(?), stoned(?), wasted(?) and playing band is well and good for a teenager. For a 50-something who isn’t actually a rock star, it just smacks of pathetic. A little time knocked for a loop following the death of his beloved mother and such a reprehensible divorce is to be understood. But only briefly. He needs to shake it off. He needs to act his age.

And bitterness doesn’t look good on anybody.

I hope he dries out, sobers up, pulls his bitter head out of his miserable ass, and sets his feet upon a healthier path. Every day he wallows in self-pity is a victory for his ex. I’d hate to see him hand her that on an ongoing basis.

Amber Heard Bigamy?

There are new headlines every day about Amber Heard’s divorce from Johnny Depp.

The question I have is about Heard’s divorce from Taysa Van Ree.
Secret wedding: A source said the two women held a private ceremony three years after Amber changed her name to celebrate their loveAmber Heard and Taysa Van Ree were married by way of a legally binding partnership in 2011. Heard even changed her name to Van Ree, stating the reason as “Domestic Partnership.” The two were considered married in every legal way available in 2011. They even celebrated with a ceremony. Gay marriage wasn’t legal in California until 2013.

But was that legal partnership ever legally dissolved?

If not, is Amber Heard a bigamist for marrying Johnny Depp?

Maybe not, technically, because her Domestic Partnership with Van Ree wasn’t actually a legal marriage. But the fact remains that for all intents and purposes, Heard is still involved in a legally binding Domestic Partnership with her “wife” Taysa Van Ree. They never dissolved the union.

So, now, Heard and Van Ree are free to continue with that partnership, and Johnny gets to foot the bill for it, to the tune of tens of millions.

Talk about having your cake and eating it, too.

Amber Heard meets with ex-wife

The headlines read that Amber Heard met up with her ex girlfriend Tysa Van Ree for lunch. But that’s not quite accurate, is it?

Heard and Van Ree were married. Heard changed her last name to Van Ree, and didn’t change it back to Heard until she decided to romance Johnny Depp. That’s not just a girlfriend. That’s a wife. A spouse.

The news is also repeating that Heard’s continued friendship with Van Ree was a source of discomfort for Johnny. Again, we’re talking about more than friendship, aren’t we? Those two girls didn’t just hang out for dinner dates or evenings at the club, did they? No. They were married. That’s not just any friend that Johnny’s over-reacting to. That’s his wife’s ex spouse. That’s entirely different.

I’ve maintained from the start the opinion that Heard never really split from Van Ree. I’ve felt from the beginning that Heard’s relationship with Johnny was a fundraising enterprise, that she was building a handsome nest egg that she and Van Ree would live on after a muck-raking split from Depp.

More to the point, I think Heard orchestrated her entire relationship with Depp to get as much money out of him as possible for herself, and for her wife. I never believed for a second that her affections were genuine. Not only is that the vibe I got, but it’s also the story her body language told in just about every photo she ever took with Johnny. He was very much into her, draping an arm around her and leaning in toward her. She, on the other hand, leaned away from him or tipped her head away from him. Even when she tried to fake a public display of affection for him, she turned her face away.

She clearly enjoyed the spotlight, but I couldn’t find a single photo where she was enjoying him.

Conversely, in pictures wtih Van Ree, Amber leans in with soft features and an effortless smile.

In my humble opinion, it’s Vann Ree that Amber loves. There’s nothing in the world wrong with that, except that an innocent man is being accused of spousal abuse, and has been taken for millions of dollars by a shrew that never loved him. Only pretended, and used her physical attributes to sucker him away from seeing the truth. Until now, anyway, when it’s too late. She’s got her hooks into him, and he’s going to have to pay through the nose to get rid of her.

And now the two lovebirds are reuniting. I saw that coming a mile away. It’s only a shame that Depp didn’t. He saw what he wanted to see, fell for her act hook, line and sinker. And now, he’s going to have to pay through the nose to get rid of her, to the tune of millions.

Heard may be pissing and moaning that he doesn’t want to give her enough millions, but she really shouldn’t. A couple million isn’t a bad payday for every year on her back. I’m sure hookers the world over are tipping their glasses in a toast to the master of the craft.
