Troubles do not seem to be ending for Aquaman actress Amber Heard who is currently busy attending the court hearings in a lawsuit filed by her former husband Johnny Depp. Amid all the turmoil, the actress is reportedly upset over the coverage of the much-talked-about trial.
In a rather shocking turn of events, she has reportedly fired her PR team and switched to a new one days before her testimony in court. As per the latest reports, Heard ditched crisis PR firm Precision Strategies last week because she was unhappy about how the trial was being covered.
“She doesn’t like bad headlines,” New York Post quoted a source as saying. According to another source, the 36-year-old actress is “frustrated with her story not being told effectively.”
This sudden PR switch came after several days of testimony by Johnny Depp that turned hundreds of social media users against Heard. Heard's new PR team, led by CEO David Shane, has previously worked against Depp to highlight allegations lodged by Depp’s former business managers who alleged that the star was required to hire a shrink for his “compulsive spending” habit of $2 million per month.
However, ex-Pete Buttigieg campaign maven Lis Smith said of Heard's decision that "it's crazy to change teams in the middle of a trial like this because you don’t like the headlines.”
She described the former PR firm Precision Strategies as “one of the best crisis firms”, adding that "they can’t rewrite the history of what’s happened.” The former PR firm was co-founded by ex-Obama adviser and deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter.
Talking about the lawsuit, Depp has finished testifying in his $50 million defamation trial against Heard. At the trial, the actor claimed that he was telling the "truth" for his family and children's sake. He also claimed that Heard's allegations against him have ruined his relations in Hollywood.
To note, the trial is reportedly expected to last at least six weeks. Meanwhile, jurors have heard several contradictory accounts of the relationship between the former pair, Heard's team has portrayed Depp as an abusive partner who was regularly into alcohol and drugs.
Depp's team, on the other hand, has labelled Heard's allegations of violence as a "hoax" and claimed that it is a deliberate attempt to destroy Depp's reputation.
