The whole media went into a frenzy when the tapes of Amber verbally and physically abusing Johnny Depp came out. After the revelation of the truth of their abusive relationship and proof of Amber’s fault, Amanda de Cadenet, a prominent women’s rights activist and former close friend of Amber revoked her support he supports for the Aquaman actress.
According to DailyMail.com, Heard was counting on de Cadenet to testify against Depp in the ongoing defamation cases. But the 48-year-old TV host just revealed in a new legal declaration that she is no longer willing to go to bat for Heard because she was “appalled and shocked to hear how Amber was speaking to Johnny.”
Amanda was referring to the tapes that were leaked in March, where the couple can be heard fighting and Amber confessing to all the things she had done.
The taped had taken the whole world into a shock as to how evil the plan of Amber was. She physically abused her then-husband Johnny Depp and blamed all the abusive behaviour on the Pirates of the Caribbean actor.
In one of the videos Heard could be heard telling him that no one would believe his story because he was a man.
Like the many others who felt these tapes flipped the script on Heard’s abuse allegations against Depp — or at least muddled them — de Cadenet felt she was “used and misled” by Amber, according to a source.
De Cadenet took it upon herself to explain in the declaration about the abusive behaviour women have to go through and being a survivor herself she has been very vocal and enthusiastic about the cause. So, when she heard about the tapes, she felt that she was being used and taken advantage of.
“When the first audiotape was released, and I heard Amber being verbally abusive to Johnny, I was horrified. I texted Robbie Kaplan, Amber’s attorney, and let her know I needed to speak with her urgently. When we spoke, I told her I was appalled and shocked to hear how Amber was speaking to Johnny and that it was not ok with me.”, said Amanda.
So, she confronted Amber about it, “When I confronted Amber concerning the recording, she informed me it was edited by Johnny’s team. I had hoped Amber would take accountability for her behaviour but she did not. I have not spoken with Amber since this exchange and have come to the very painful realization that someone who I advocated for and believed so wholeheartedly, was not entirely forthcoming with me… I want to emphasize that I have no further personal knowledge of what happened between Johnny and Amber, and no knowledge of the truth of her accusations against him.” After the release of the tapes, it wasn’t only Amanda’s support that Amber lost but also the support of her lawyer, Roberta Kaplan who has refused to represent her now.
