[Blind Gossip] Now that this actor/actress couple’s relationship is falling apart, a new contest is about to begin. In it, each contestant will try to throw the other under the bus!
The contest will start soon. This will not be a nice game. Nor will it be a fair game. Even though he is more of a mess than she, he has more money, more fans, and more influence with the press and within the industry. We’ve heard that his team is planning to launch negative articles about her on a regular basis. They will paint him as the innocent, lovable guy who is just trying to make movies, and her as the (gold-digging/ promiscuous/ lying/ cheating/opportunistic/ uncaring/ nagging/ drinking/ dr*g using) woman who is trying to destroy him.
Most of it won’t be true, but that doesn’t matter! As long as YOU think that he is the good guy and she is bad guy, that’s what matters! He wins.
Actor: Johnny Depp
Actress: Amber Heard
Amber Heard has filed for divorce from Johnny Depp!
Although our original blind item was written a year ago, it might as well have been written yesterday because it shows two important things.
First, that the marriage was a disaster from the beginning. Secondly, that when things were bad between the two of them a year ago, his team was ready and willing to crush her.
Both of these things are as true today as they were a year ago.
Johnny Depp dated actress Vanessa Paradis for fourteen years and had two children with her but never married her. Heard was only 24 when she met Depp on a film set. Depp is 52 years old. He is much more famous than Heard. He is much wealthier. Yet, somehow, people find it easy to blame Heard for Depp’s failure to commit to Paradis. Really? It’s her fault that he didn’t marry his girlfriend after fourteen years?
People are also blaming Heard for Johnny Depp’s lack of sobriety. Depp is an addict. He has been for many, many years. Heard tried to keep him sober, including keeping him away from people who she knew enabled him, encouraging him to get counseling, and hiring a sober companion for him. He tried but failed to stay sober. Many people are blaming Heard for Depp’s lack of sobriety. Really? It’s her fault that this decades-long addict can’t stay sober?
Neither Depp’s lack of personal accountability nor facts will stop Depp’s team for blaming Heard for everything they can, no matter how ridiculous. We mentioned in the original blind that they were willing to portray her as a gold-digging/ promiscuous/ lying/ cheating/opportunistic/ uncaring/ nagging/ drinking/ drug user.
The stories have already started.
She is cold for filing just as his mom died. His family always hated her. His children always hated her.
She is a gold digger. She has no right to ask for alimony.
She was controlling. She tried to keep him isolated.
She is the reason he is no longer sober. She is the reason he looks bad and smells bad.
Amber Heard may not be a saint, but she is probably far from the villain that she will be portrayed as during this divorce. It will be interesting to see how far Depp’s team takes their character assassination… as well as whether or not Heard fights back with accusations of her own. She probably has plenty of dirt to spill!
Everybody got this one right, starting with MissTilley!
Kudos to DelilaMars for picking up on this clue: “We’ve HEARD that his team is planning to launch negative articles.”
Yeah, that was sneaky.
