Prominent MeToo activist Amanda de Cadenet drops her support for Amber Heard
Prominent MeToo supporter Amanda de Cadenet has dropped her support for Amber Heard after listening to her ‘verbally abusing’ Johnny Depp in bombshell audio tapes published exclusively by DailyMail.com.
The 34-year-old actress was expecting de Cadenet, a close friend and longtime women’s rights activist, to testify against Depp in a series of looming defamation cases.
But the British-born TV host, 48, reveals in a new legal declaration that she changed her mind because she was ‘appalled and shocked to hear how Amber was speaking to Johnny’.
Her dramatic about-turn came after DailyMail.com released a series of bombshell audio tapes in which the couple were overheard discussing their marriage problems and frequent fights.
The Aquaman beauty admitted ‘clocking’ her Oscar nominated husband in the jaw and pelting him with pots, pans and vases in various recordings made prior to the couple’s May 2016 split.
She also appeared to be goading 57-year-old Depp, predicting that nobody would believe his accounts of the violence and telling him: ‘You are such a baby. Grow the f**k up Johnny.’
De Cadenet is the second prominent MeToo figure to part company with Heard in the space of a week after high-profile Time’s Up attorney Roberta Kaplan confirmed her firm is no longer representing her.
A source close to de Cadenet said she was a survivor herself and remained a steadfast advocate of women’s rights.
‘Amanda feels she was used and misled by Amber and hopes Amber receives the help she needs,’ the source added.
‘Amanda believes in the power of redemption and reconciliation and hopes both parties are able to achieve that.’
Heard’s historical claims of domestic abuse will come under the microscope in defamation cases either side of the Atlantic, beginning next month when Depp takes the UK’s Sun newspaper to court in London for calling him a ‘wife-beater’. – Source
