Don't point the finger at her, your Honor!
The video emerged just a day before Heard was scheduled to be deposed in her legal battle with Depp.
In the video released on Friday, the action ends abruptly when Depp realizes that Amber is recording his tantrum on her phone. The last things we hear him saying is:
You want to see crazy? I'll show you crazy!
In addition to the picture of the finger, TMZ also posted a picture of a mirror on which Depp has allegedly written the names of Amber's suspected paramour, Billy Bob Thornton. (!!!)
It is know that Depp needed surgery on his finger but the story was that he injured himself on a film set in Australia.
Let's review the issues at hand here.
Johnny Depp has a temper. We can see it in the video.
But we don't see him getting physical with Heard.
We do hear her goading him, in an exaggeratedly innocent 'who-me?' little girl voice.
If Amber didn't release the video, who did?
It's safe to say that the couple had a turbulent relationship. From all accounts, this is business as usual for Heard.
Depp's ex wife and friends insist that it is not his nature to be violent.
Amber Heard wants money. She wants a lot of it, and Johnny has a lot of it.
But after 14 months of marriage, what is a fair amount of money for Amber?
And why does she continue to use the press to indict her estranged husband?
Call me impartial, but a woman who goads a man into flipping out and then records him going berserk is not a person to be trusted.
It suggests a scheme, at the very least.
Just as a man making a secret sex tape of his lover, a woman recording a temper tantrum (that doesn't involve any harm done to her) is out of order and demonstrating poor character.
Poor Johnny. Amber seems like a gift that won't stop giving until the price is right.
