The couple has been making headlines from their appearances at the Fairfax County Circuit Court for most of the past month.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star is suing his ex-wife for $50 million over a December 2018 op-ed Heard wrote for the Washington Post where she claims to be a domestic violence survivor. Although Heard did not mention Depp in the op-ed, he claims that he has lost movie roles, including a $22.5 million dollar paycheck for the sixth Pirates movie, due to the abuse allegations.
Heard is countersuing for $100 million dollars and claims that her career has also suffered from stepping forward, including a reduced role in the “Aquaman” sequel.
Celebrities have been weighing in on the trial and taking sides just as much as the fans have, with some coming out in support of Johnny Depp and a few coming out to stand with Amber Heard. You won’t have to guess which side Bethenny Frankel is on when you read what she had to see!
Bethenny Frankel Says Amber Heard Is The ‘Craziest Woman That’s Walked This Planet’
The “Real Housewives of New York City” alum went as far as to say Depp looks “like a hero” when compared to Heard.
“Johnny Depp looks like a hero only in a relationship with Amber Heard,” Frankel said, joking that the Johnny “is gonna be f—ing anointed Gandhi and the pope” when the trial is over “because he was in a relationship with the craziest woman that’s walked this planet.”
She added, “I’m sure Queen Elizabeth is calling him being like, ‘Come here, I wanna give you a knighthood because you’re now the hero in this crazy villain story.’”
“It doesn’t make any sense,” she continued. “Johnny Depp plus anyone besides Amber Heard is a raving, [MDMA], cocaine, s—-in-bed-tolerating man.”
She started singing the Mariah Carey song, “Hero,” with the lyrics, “and then a hero comes along.” She added, “because Amber Heard is who he’s being compared to.”
Frankel reportedly wrapped things up saying, “Put me next to Shrek! … I’ll be co-hosting the Met [Gala] next year with Anna Wintour!”
It seems that everyone has an opinion on the trial, including former President of the United States, Donald Trump, who seemed to indicate that he wanted to see Depp and Heard get back together!
Donald Trump May Be Sarcastically Suggesting The Hollywood Couple Get Back Together
There is probably a zero percent chance that Heard and Depp will get back together given all that they’ve been through in this trial. Many viewers watching the trial at home have noticed that Depp did not look up at Heard once throughout her entire testimony. That being said, it seems that Trump might be jokingly hoping for a reconciliation between the two.
The Daily Mail took a screenshot of Trump’s post from the outlet, which is transcribed below. From the text, it seems that most of his comments seem to be sarcastic.
“Has anybody been watching the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial?” Trump asked. “What a lovely couple!”
“First of all, Johnny sued her for writing an article in a tiny ‘outlet,’ that practically nobody read, because he didn’t want to get bad publicity,” Trump continued, taking aim at the Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post, which has drawn his ire in the past.
“How did that work out?” he asked. “She countersued for $100 million.”
“The charges are many & salacious, the nicest of which is that she threw a bottle at him and it took off his finger – She must have a Sandy Koufax type arm,” Trump continued. He wrapped his post up by asking, “Will they get back together and live happily in PEACE?”
It seems doubtful. The trial is scheduled to hold its closing arguments on Friday, May 27. It’s unclear how long a jury will take to reach their decision, but they have years of evidence to consider.
