Amber Heard is leaning on a group of strong women for International Women’s Day – her legal team who has been providing support for the actress during her ongoing court battle with ex-husband, Johnny Depp. The “Aquaman” star took to Instagram on Monday afternoon to pay tribute to her close group of female advisors and revealed where she finds her strength on International Women’s Day. The posting by Amber Heard comes amid confusion about whether the star will reprise her role in the “Aquaman” sequel.
34-year-old Amber Heard showcased her team in full action mode with her message on Monday while naming the women who provide support during the trying legal battle against Johnny Depp.
“I am stronger because of their strength. Bianca, Elaine Bredehoft, Jennifer Robinson, and Whit,” Heard captioned her photo of the women huddled up while watching something on an iPhone.
Heard has made sure to surround herself with experts during her legal war, including Robinson, who is a high-profile Australian human rights lawyer.
Among her legal team of women, Amber Heard also casually mentioned Bianca Butti, her girlfriend. Heard has been seen publicly with the Los Angeles-based cinematographer since last January when they were spotted kissing during a trip to Palm Springs.
Butti’s IMDb credits include 10 episodes of the VH1 series, “Love & Hip Hop,” also worked on Bella Thorne’s directorial debut for PornHub, “Her & Him.”
She is also battling breast cancer and friends have raised more than $19,000 for her ongoing treatment on GoFundMe.
The Instagram post by Amber Heard comes amid the drama and confusion surrounding her upcoming role in “Aquaman 2.” It was reported that Heard had allegedly breached a health & fitness clause in her contract and would not be reprising her role as Mera.
The story went viral, and many of Heard’s online critics were basking in the glory of her alleged firing, but the drastic move still has not been validated by anyone associated with the movie, including Warner Bros.
