Amber Heard reportedly took advantage of her relationship with Johnny Depp when they were still dating to get free items from various companies.
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp met in 2011 when they top-billed the movie The Rum Diary. At the time, Depp and Vanessa Paradis’ relationship was rumored to be hitting the rock bottom. In 2012, Depp and Paradis separated, and shortly after that, he and Heard started dating.
Amber Heard used Johnny Depp connection
Amber Heard’s former personal assistant, Kate James, made a statement regarding Johnny Depp’s case against the Aquaman actress. In her deposition, James said she served as Heard’s PA from March 2012 to February 2015.
James added that the actress took advantage of her status as Depp’s girlfriend. In fact, she allegedly used it to get free designer items.
“Amber relished the fame that came with dating Johnny,” James said.
“She quickly realized that she could ask for free designer clothing on the basis that she was his girlfriend. A large part of my job was contacting various brands with her requests for free clothing.”
James added that Heard would spend hours handpicking the requests she would send to her, so she could reach out to those brands. Furthermore, Heard only wanted free items. If the company would offer a discount, she would refuse them.
“She eventually took over an entire penthouse apartment in one of Johnny’s penthouses at the Eastern Columbia building to house her massive collection of designer clothes, shoes, bags and jewelry,” James added.
Heard as Depp’s girlfriend
Amber Heard was not a perfect girlfriend for Johnny Depp. In fact, according to James, she made disparaging comments about the Pirates of the Caribbean actor.
When James started working with Heard, she was reportedly already dating Depp. However, James wasn’t aware of who her boyfriend was at the start.
She recalled how Heard would tell her, she was “dating this old man.” Eventually, Heard introduced Depp to James.
“My impression of him was how softly spoken and peaceful he was, almost a bit shy. He was very pleasant and courteous upon meeting me,” James said about Depp.
Heard copied Depp’s style
James also noticed “bizarre” changes in Amber Heard. When she first met the actress, she described Heard’s fashion as “preppy.”
However, Heard drastically changed and morphed into someone who dressed like Johnny Depp. According to her, it happened almost overnight.
Moreover, Heard didn’t just copy the way Depp dressed, she also followed Depp’s home design.
James helped Heard transformed her duplex apartment. The celebrity completely changed its ambiance to a bohemian vibe. When he saw Depp’s house she was shocked because it was too similar.
“I couldn’t believe how similar it was to what Amber was in the process of trying to create. It was almost identical,” James added.
