Johnny Depp’s alleged assault victim wants to drag Amber Heard into an upcoming court trial.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Gregg “Rocky” Brooks is responding to Depp’s attempt to ban his ex-wife from being mentioned in the case.
Earlier this year, Brooks sued Depp accusing him of assault on the film set for “City of Lies”. Depp has denied the allegations and claimed self-defense. The trial is scheduled to begin on October 21.
Depp recently pleaded for certain evidence and testimony to be off limits during the trial. He filed motions to prohibit discussion about his ex-wife Amber Heard or his alleged drug use. Depp believed it could turn the jury against him.
In newly filed docs, Brooks is asking a judge to shut down Depp’s request. He believes the topics of Amber Heard and alleged drug use are relevant to his case.
