[Abel H.] What Does Amber Heard Believe?
With the dust settling on the first Amber Heard / Johnny Depp trial, Heard and her new team are rallying for an appeal. Given the incredible landslide of reaction in the court of public opinion, one might question the wisdom of any second round. Still, considering Depp’s own change of fortune after losing in his case against News Group in 2018, perhaps there is logic in Amber’s pursuit? After all, it was determined that claims of domestic abuse were substantially accurate enough to support publicly calling Depp a “wife beater.” A quick peruse of the latest online coverage of him though suggests that winning the latest case in the United States has been enough to turn public opinion in his favour.
On the other hand, perhaps it’s not a “play” or “strategy” or “guise” or “plan” or anything else malevolent in the mind of Amber Heard. Perhaps she believes that she is a victim deserving of justice like any other citizen and nothing more – why not? After all, she was partially successful in her counter suit meaning there must have been some validity to her claim.
This month’s question is: what do you believe, Amber Heard believes? Given all the accusations, the charges, and the verdicts, what, if anything, does she know is a lie? In contrast, what, if anything, does she sincerely believe? If she was given a consequence free opportunity and confessed to you her unfiltered version of the truth as she perceives it, what would she say?

Statement of Fact
— In 2018, Johnny Depp sued News Group in a British court for defamation and lost the case.
— In 2022, Johnny Depp sued Amber Heard in an American court and won.
After playing a major role as a key witness in the Depp v News Group Newspapers Ltd and winning herself a £5 million compensation, Amber Heard went on to brag about her victory and taunt Johnny Depp knowing fully well he would sue to keep his name from entering the mud once again. And she predicted her ex- husband so well. “
In an article written by Robert Welss on psychology today it is said that a cheating partner victimizes their spouse through -verbal abuse, threatening behavior, physical abuse, psychological abuse and neglect- and everything listed were traits Amber Heard exhibited during the last few years of her marriage will having and affair with the tech mogul Elon Musk.”
Shortly after Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s divorese, Elon Musk divorced his ex- wife Talulah Riley and entered a relationship with Amber Heard proving critics and Johnny Deep right about his ex- wife and the tech mogul having an affair behind his back. Depp claimed in the lawsuit that Heard and Musk started their affair in March 2015, a month after Depp and Heard married. “Unbeknownst to Mr. Depp, no later than one month after his marriage to Ms. Heard, she was spending time in a new relationship with Tesla and Space X founder, Elon Musk,” the legal documents read. “Only one calendar month after Mr. Depp and Ms. Heard were married—while Mr. Depp was out of the country, filming in March 2015—Eastern Columbia Building personnel testified that Ms. Heard received Musk ‘late at night’ at Mr. Depp’s penthouse. Specifically, Ms. Heard asked staff at the Eastern Columbia Building to give her ‘friend Elon’ access to the building’s parking garage and the penthouse elevator ‘late at night,’ and they testified that they did so. Building staff would then see Ms. Heard’s ‘friend Elon’ leaving the building the next morning.” Although they both denied it, people still know that it is far from the truth. The case which was televised, gave everyone an insight on who Amber heard really was. More information on the story can be found on the blog Stlylecaster. “
According to the blog Entertainment it has been hinted that Amber Heard plans to change her legal team as they failed to prove to the world that she was indeed the victim and not the abuser.”
During the trial she never answered questions thrown at her directly, rather she kept on referring to how she was an ideal picture of a female victim in a common abuse case. Her initial lawyer Roberta Kaplan, founder of Time’s up a non-profit organization that raises money to support victims of sexual harrasment, withdrew from Amber Heard’s legal team after finding out the true details of the story. Fortunately for Amber Heard, she has attorney client privilege so we cannot know how much Roberta was told to convince her to withdraw from the case.
The real question is why Amber Heard didn’t make all these allegations when she and Johnny Depp got divorced in January 2017? Why did she wait till after she had played a major role in ruining his career and personal life? The answer is simply because she had considered herself protected by the general speculation of society, that women are the sufferers of domestic abuse. It had worked for her when she got paid the sum of $7 million for her divorse and £5 million as compensation for what she “ endured” during her marriage to Johnny Depp. She was actually successful in the beginning as Johnny Depp was called out on twitter and other social media outlets and tagged a monster. No one heard his own side of the story for sure and no one cared, had the case not been broadcasted live perhaps people would have accused Johnny Depp of conniving with the jury to tarnish Amber Heard’s image.
“ In an article talking about the Depp and Heard’s case study on a blog called Vulture, the writer said that, ‘It was clear that Amber Heard would appeal the verdict the moment Johnny Depp won his defamation case against her. There was the matter of money: The Fairfax County, Virginia, jury that heard their case awarded the Pirates of the Caribbean actor more than $10 million, which Heard reportedly just doesn’t have.’”
Ironically, instead of just coming out to say she can’t afford to pay the huge sum of money, Amber Heard is making claims that her appeal is for the sake of the women out there who would be scared to seek legal action if abused. But we all know that Amber’s net worth says otherwise. With a net worth of $6 million and a court order to pay $10 million plus $5 million in punitive damages which fortunately for Amber Heard was later reduced to $350,000, we can now see the real reason for her appeal. It is not an appeal for support of the woman’s cause, it is an appeal to save herself from the bankruptcy that awaits her at the end of the tunnel.
If Amber Heard was given a consequence free opportunity to confess her unfiltered version of the truth as she perceives it, she would certainly confess to the fact that she has painted herself as the victim while she was the pepertuator of the violence and isn’t happy that Johnny Deep is still comfortable while her life is falling apart before her eyes.
