The long and complicated case between actor Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard has been dragging for the longest time and has yet to reach its conclusion and by the look of things, it seems there’s still a long way to go.
More recently, Johnny and his legal team shared a CCTV footage in court alleging Amber cheated on him with actor James Franco and billionaire Elon Musk. How did that happen?
The CCTV footage was apparently from the night after the couple had the big fight (22nd May 2016). From the video, Amber and James were seen riding down the lift together with both conveniently facing away from the camera. The incident took place at the LA apartment that was once shared by Johnny and Amber.
The 35-year-old actress exited the lift together with James on the penthouse floor, where Johnny’s apartment with Amber was located. In the same month, the “Aquaman” star was also seen with Elon Musk.
Although there is no CCTV footage of the two meeting, security guards of the apartment have claimed that the entrepreneur visited her in May 2016 multiple times before she filed for divorce from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star. Photos of Amber and Elon meeting in the lift have been circulating on Twitter.
The 58-year-old actor’s legal team is calling James Franco a “witness” and plan to ask him multiple questions of the night and of the lift incident and to find out if Amber has said anything about her big fight with Johnny, claiming of physical abuse.
“We are interested in James Franco and Elon Musk as fact witnesses because we have evidence they are men who saw Amber Heard’s face in the days and nights between when she claimed Mr. Depp smashed her in the face on May 21,” said Adam Waldman, Johnny’s attorney.
A rep for Elon previously said that Elon and Amber didn’t start seeing each other until May 2016, and even then it was infrequent. Since the CCTV footage was released, neither both James nor Elon have said anything regarding the cheating allegations. However, both are expected to testify in court via video link.
