In addition, this modification was accompanied by another novelty. What Amber Heard cited in her statement against Depp for Kate Moss, who was the partner of the actor, the supermodel will appear to testify this Wednesday.
For his part, Arnold testified in favor of Heard, who he claims had a career “similar to that of Zendaya” if she hadn’t been involved in so many legal troubles. “It would have been very reasonable to believe that his career would have had an upward trajectory“, he condemned.
The domestic violence specialist also appeared in court David Spigel who assured that Depp has narcissistic traitswith little self-control, sudden mood swings and power-worshippers.
