Amber Heard is reacting to reports that the actress is being investigated for perjury by the Los Angeles Police Department in connection to her alleged abuse case against ex-husband Johnny Depp.

On Friday (May 28), the 35-year-old actress was granted a motion to dismiss the 57-year-old actor’s defamation case against her for the third time by a Virginia judge. However, it was then reported that if she is found to have committed perjury during the court case, she would face legal repercussions in the form of sanctions or fines.

It was then reported that Amber was being investigated for allegedly staging injuries and a crime scene in connection to a May 21, 2016 incident that took place at the house Amber and Johnny shared in Los Angeles.

One of Amber‘s attorneys then reacted to the reports that Amber could face a maximum jail sentence of four years if she did perjury during the court case.

“The statute of limitations for perjury in California is three years and has long since expired, so an investigation, much less charges, much less a conviction, much less jail time, are impossibilities,” one of Amber‘s lawyers, Elaine Bredehoft, argued in court, Radar Online reports.

She also claimed that the LAPD has “repeatedly denied there’s any investigation of Amber Heard,” adding that the department “does not even investigate perjury ever.”

A rep for the LAPD backed Elaine‘s claims, saying that they have never heard of the department investigating a perjury in the case.

Elaine also accused Johnny‘s lawyer, Adam Waldman, of “trying to stir up the press and prejudice a future jury.”

Earlier this month, Johnny filed a lawsuit again the American Civil Liberties Union, wanting proof that Amber actually donated her $7 million divorce to charity, which she said that would do.

Johnny is claiming that Amber also donated a small amount of that money to charity.

If you missed it, one of Johnny Depp‘s friends voiced their support for the actor against Amber Heard‘s abuse claims.

Johnny Depp is suing the ACLU – the American Civil Liberties Union – over his ex wife Amber Heard‘s divorce settlement.

If you don’t know, back in 2016 as part of their divorce settlement, Amber agreed to donate her $7 million to charity. In 2021, Amber had to respond to allegations that she actually did not donate the money and pocketed it instead.

Now, Johnny Depp wants to see the ACLU’s financials to ensure that Amber really did donate the money. He believes she only donated a couple hundred thousand dollars, TMZ reports.

Johnny is presumably doing this in an attempt to reverse a London judge’s ruling that the “wife beater” headline he was labeled with did not defame him. He has already requested a retrial.

“Johnny is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met in my life,” Alice told Page Six. “He is the most harmless human being I’ve ever met, so I’m not buying into all of the other stories at because I know him and everybody else who knows him knows that.”

Amber‘s abuse allegations against Johnny made major headlines last year in a London court battle when Johnny tried to sue The Sun newspaper for branding him as a “wife beater” for allegedly attacking Amber during their marriage from 2015 to 2017. Johnny ended up losing the lawsuit.

George Jung, the drug trafficker Johnny Depp played in the 2001 movie Blow, has sadly passed away.

George‘s passing was confirmed on his social media on Wednesday afternoon (May 5). He was 78-years-old.

“R.I.P. #georgejung Passed passed away this morning in his hometown of #weymouth #massachusetts #bostongeorge #the last #outlaw,” the caption on his Instagram post read.

On his Twitter, his death was announced along with a quote from Blow, which recently turned 20-years-old.

“May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face, and the winds of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars,” the tweet read. “1942-2021.”

George was a major player in the United States cocaine trade back in the ’70s-’80s, as part of the Pablo Escobar-founded Medellín Cartel.

He was arrested in 1994 and stayed in prison for 20 years before being released in 2014.

George‘s life story was turned into the movie Blow by late director Ted Demme, with Johnny playing a younger version of George navigating the drug smuggling world.

We have sadly lost all of these stars in 2021.

Mads Mikkelsen Won’t Be Playing ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Gellert Grindelwald The Same Way as Johnny Depp

Mads Mikkelsen is taking over the role of Gellert Grindelwald in the next Fantastic Beasts movie, replacing Johnny Depp, who played the iconic character for the past two films.

In a recent interview with Total Film, the 55-year-old Danish actor is revealing what the transition will be like and how he’s making his Grindelwald different from Johnny‘s portrayal.

“This is obviously a more direct comparison because it’s the next film,” he shared with the magazine. “So we have done a few bridges that will allow us to recognize it, but we’ve also said we have to make it our own.”

Mads added that mirroring Johnny‘s intensity in his own performance wasn’t going to work.

“I have been a fan of Johnny Depp since I saw him as a young man, and to try to bring his intensity and his way of doing it into my work is a no-go,” he said. “I have to find my own, because his is unique, and I just have to let that be, and find a different path.”

This isn’t the first time Mads has opened up about taking over the role. See what he said earlier this year…

Amber Heard is hoping that the $50 million defamation lawsuit filed against her by ex-husband Johnny Depp will be dismissed by the court.

Depp previously lost his legal battle in the UK, where he sued a newspaper for calling him a “wife beater.”

Amber‘s lawyers filed a supplemental plea with the court, saying that the judgment in the UK proves that the statements made by the actress are true.

“Giving full effect to the UK Judgments necessitates a finding that statements in the op-ed published in the Washington Post are true – Mr. Depp committed domestic violence against Ms. Heard on many occasions, causing her to fear for her life,” Amber’s lawyers wrote in the filing (via Deadline).

They added, “Therefore, as a matter of law, Depp cannot prevail on any of his claims, and Depp’s Complaint against Ms. Heard should be dismissed in its entirety.”

The trial will not start until April 11, 2022 if it does end up going in front of the judge.
