The legal battle is still going on between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp. Looks like it may not stop anytime soon. This case may go on till the time of Fantastic Beasts 3. There may be chances that Johnny may not return as Gellert Grindelwald in the third installment. But now, the case just took another turn. Let’s take a look at what just happened.
Enter James Franco
James Franco has recently been involved in the entire defamation case. Franco has been asked to be summoned at the court while the hearing for the case goes on. This is the case of ongoing domestic violence. Nobody is sure whether the defamation charges put on Johnny are true or not. Here is where James Franco comes in.
There was a surveillance video of the elevator of the ex-couple’s former apartment. This apartment was located in downtown Los Angeles. Here’s the catch. This video may lead to a subpoena to Franco. That makes him a witness of the entire case. The video came out on the 2nd of July. It was ‘The Blast’ who revealed the video.
What’s in the video?
In the video is the shot of a woman, which is claimed to be Heard. She is taking the elevator in which a man is inside. That man is now being identified as James Franco. Franco boarded the elevator later on after Amber. The face of the man and the woman is still not clear. So that is why the sources might not exactly be right. It is still not confirmed whether the Heard and Franco elevation situation stands true or not.
James’ role in the case
Here is James’ main role in the case. Johnny is going to question James in front of the court that whether if there were any bruises on Amber during that time or not. If the evidence is right, then it’s a $50 million fine coming towards Amber. And if not, Johnny might be facing some serious trouble in the future. They are even bringing in Elon Musk as a witness to the court.
