At last! Here’s the ace Amber Heard’s been hiding up her sleeve. The video of Johnny that she promised would PROVE that he’s got a violent temper and seal the deal for her. The video got “leaked” to TMZ. I guess after her ridiculous behavior at the deposition she didn’t give last weekend, she felt she needed to drop a bombshell to sway the public’s opinion in her favor. (I didn’t say back in her favor because I don’t think she’s had the public’s favor yet over this whole thing.)
I gotta tell ya, I can’t WAIT to tear this thing apart. So much so that I’m doubling down on posts today.
The video is below, but first, let me describe it.
The video starts with Johnny kicking a kitchen cabinet, shouting “MOTHERF-ER!” repeatedly.
Heard, holding a travel mug in front of the phone so he won’t see it, asks “What happened?” Johnny walks away.
When Johnny walks back into the kitchen nowhere near her, Heard positions herself in front of the camera so he won’t see it. Clearly, she is filming him without his knowledge or consent. She ask him again, “What happened?”
He slams a few kitchen cabinets around, breaking something, then wanders back out of sight.
Heard says “Nothing happened this morning. You know that.” Something smashes.
Johnny asks: “Were you here?”
Heard answers: “No.”
Johnny replies: “So then nothing happened TO YOU this morning.”
Heard answers back: “Yeah, you’re right. I just woke up and you were still asleep, so…”
Johnny walks back into view, into the kitchen, fetches a glass and walks back out of frame again.
Amber continues: “We weren’t even fighting this morning. All I did was say sorry.”
Johnny comes back into the kitchen area and tries to get the subject back on track by asking “Did something happen TO YOU this morning? I don’t think so.” And walks back out again.
Heard moves the phone to try to keep Johnny in sight more.
Johnny, not noticing the phone yet, walks toward the counter where she’s standing and reaches for a bottle of wine. Heard quickly puts her cup in front of the phone so Johnny won’t see it.
Pouring himself a drink, johnny says: “You want to see crazy? I’ll give you crazy. Here’s crazy. Oh, you’re crazy.” He pours himself a drink. “There’s your crazy.” He puts the bottle down hard.
Heard points at the bottle and asks: “Have you drunk this whole thing this morning?”
That’s when Johnny notices the phone. “Oh, you’ve got this thing running?”
Amber stammers: “I just started it.”
Johnny snatches up the phone, saying: “Oh, really? Really?” And throws it.
Here’s the video.
And my take on it:
Johnny was obviously pissed off about something that happened when she wasn’t home that morning. She took advantage of the moment, planted the camera and inserted her own self-serving comments to manipulate his anger about something unrelated so that she could paint herself as the victim.
Heard tries to put fear into her voice, to play victim, but look at her actions. Never once does she shy away from him. Quite the opposite. When he approaches, she puts herself in front of the camera, to hide it.
And never once does she run out, the poor, frightenend victim of his rage. Instead, she stands with her hip cocked and a travel mug held casually in her hand.
All she managed to prove is that even when he’s angry enough to slam kitchen cabinets, HE DIDN’T TOUCH HER. He didn’t swear at her. He didn’t lift a pinky toward her. All he did was insist that NOTHING HAPPENED TO HER, clearly trying to tell her that he was pissed about something that had nothing to do with her.
Even when he discovered that she was recording him, he didn’t make any aggressive action towards her. He reached PAST her and snatched up the phone.
Several questions leap to mind.
If she was so afraid of him, why didn’t she leave when she saw that he was in such a rage?
Why didn’t she call the police on the spot?
Why didn’t she leave him, right then and there?
Why has it taken so long for this “devastating” video to see the light of day, unless she was holding it until it could fetch her a higher settlement?
Sorry to tell her, but she falls short, yet again.
All she managed to do with this “damning” video is prove that HE DIDN’T ABUSE HER.
