Johnny Depp is pleading with a judge to not allow any talk about Amber Heard or his alleged drug use in his upcoming assault trial.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Depp is requesting certain topics and evidence be banned from court.
Earlier this year, Gregg “Rocky” Brooks sued Depp accusing him of assault on the film set for “City of Lies”. Depp has denied the allegations and claimed self-defense against the crew member. The trial is scheduled to begin on October 21.
In newly filed court docs, the actor is asking that Amber Heard not be mentioned to the jury.
Depp believes Brooks will try and bring up his divorce proceedings with Heard in the trial. The actor says this could “improperly sway” the jury. He says a lot of press about the divorce made him look bad.
He believes the only reason to talk about Heard is to paint him “in a bad light.”
