If you have not been living under a rock for the past year, you know about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. The latest update on their fiasco was that the judge overruled Amber’s demurrer on Depp’s $50 million defamation lawsuit. However, a document released last year has risen from its grave. And it is making waves on social media.
What is in Tara Roberts’ declaration?
The document in question is Tara Roberts’ declaration. But who is Tara Roberts? And what is her relation to Amber Heard and Johnny Depp? Well, she is Depp’s Estate Manager for his 45-acre island in the Bahamas. Roberts’ declaration includes her first-hand witness of Amber Heard’s violence. And the incident in question is that of December 29, 2015. She specifically heard Amber body-shaming Depp and saying:
‘Fat’… ‘You will die a lonely man’… ‘Your career is over’
‘Nobody is going to hire you’… ‘You’re washed up’
Moreover, Heard was ferociously insulting Depp and calling him names. At one point, he tried to leave the house but she took out his car keys. Amber’s screaming and berating were only replied by Depp saying ‘Go away’ and ‘Leave me alone’. Only Roberts’ physical intervention stopped her from clawing, lunging and pushing him. After the fight was settled, Roberts noticed he had a red, swelling gash on his nose bridge. At this time, Johnny said Amber had thrown ‘a quart-sized can of lacquer thinner‘.
Did Johnny Depp’s children witness anything?
According to Roberts’ declaration, the morning after was no better. When she visited the house in the morning, the garden was littered with art supplies. But more importantly, Amber had thrown away her wedding ring, which Roberts helped in finding. And at the time of this incident, Johnny Depp’s children and a friend of her daughter were also present. They witnessed the aftermath of the fight, and Roberts had to take them to their father. She also went on to deny Amber’s claim of physical abuse. Apparently, she had a photoshoot the day after her rampage, which is undeniable evidence of any possible physical retaliation of Johnny Depp. As Heard comes under fire, a change.org petition to remove her from Aquaman 2 has crossed 400,000 signatures.
