Looks like Jennifer Robinson will be representing the ex in the VA case. At least it's what she says.

The DM are pretty right wing, like the Sun, so I'm not surprised they are on husband beater's side. Robinson however, turned my stomach when she went on and on about husband beater's 'courage'.
:agreesign: hollyberry!! I had to stop reading it as it turned my stomach!!

I noticed in this old (2016) article that Amber attempted to sue regarding the donations.
Actress Amber Heard has filed a defamation lawsuit against the comedian who accused her of blackmailing her husband Johnny Depp and making false domestic abuse allegations.

In the court documents, Heard alleges that Doug Stanhope and 20 complicit unnamed defendants "orchestrated a plot to write an article, which was published at TheWrap.com, which falsely accuses plaintiff Amber Heard of 'blackmail' and other criminal behaviour towards her husband, Johnny Depp, from whom she is seeking a divorce".


Does anyone know what the outcome was here? Who were the "20 complicit unnamed defendants"? As this lawsuit was over the donations, would there be details in this trial that could be used for Johnny's?

As she clearly didn't donate the money, and what money was received in her name was sent directly from Johnny which we know she forced him then to pay directly to her, so.........

Amber said she was going to give the money from her lawsuit against Doug Stanhope to a shelter in Arizona for domestic violence victims but she dropped the lawsuit and to my knowledge, no shelter has acknowledged any donation from her.

I thought AH agreed to drop the lawsuit against Stanhope and the 20 “complicit unnamed defendants” as part of the Divorce Settlement.

Finally some good news. Amber's attempts to block some of Johnny's subpoenas were DENIED. :snoopydances: :snoopydances: :snoopydances:

Sure hope so!! Thanks so much, Lbock and Qwerty, for giving us such good news. AND some hope, for a change! Love seeing that word “Denied” turned against AH, not to mention seeing “Sanctions” (small though they may be) levied against HER.

I don't know what "evidence" the judge saw about her supposed charity donations but this is what he put in is decision when discussing the "hoax" allegation by JD's team.

He says he has evidence as to what Amber received in the divorce settlement and an no expert evidence to compare those figures with what she was entitled to under CA law. Then he goes into the charity.

"The principal elelment of that settlement was payment to her by Mr Depp of US $7 million. Ms Heard's evidence that she had given that sum away to charity was not challenged on behalf of Mr Depp and the joint statement issued by Mr Depp and Ms Heard as part of the Deal Point Memornaum acknowledged that this was her intention (see file 9/139/L78). I recognize that there were other elements to the divorce settlement as well, but her donation of the $7 million to charity is hardly the act one would expect of a gold-digger."

Hi Inquiring Minds! Hopefully, I have found some information that you requested. As far as the 20 other defendants, I am assuming that was others, close to Johnny, with the same thoughts of AH as Doug Stanhope. Maybe someone else knows more. It looks like the case was dropped, possibly as part of the divorce agreement? Anyway, here is an article:



I cannot find an article or an interview that I was looking for. D Stanhope had known AH for a while, it sounded like, and he didn't seem to care for her personally.

Hi everyone:

Go on You Tube. There was an interview with Howard Stern with Stanhope. Stanhope had to get a lawyer because of Heard. I am not sure if that might give you a little more insight. There is also another one with Joe Rogan talking about Stanhope and the article he wrote about "that day."

Hopefully it might help with lingering questions.

Poking around the net I found Amber's name on The CHLA honor roll for donors contributing $1m-5m.



(Bottom of page 2, last entry in column 3)

Of course, this could be (probably is) a pledge only and the money was never actually received. Otherwise why is she holding out on the receipts rather than screaming about her beneficence from the tallest building?

Maybe it was from the payment Johnny made directly in her name, but not actually sent herself? I suspect she would have had trouble getting that donation refunded ;)

Seems to me this paragraph creates more questions than it answers:

** Is AH’s “evidence that she had given that sum away to charity” merely a projection being made by the judge on her behalf, extracted from the joint “Deal Point Memornaum” (sp?), her stated “intention” to do so?

** Johnny would not have challenged her stated “intention” during the trial, if indeed her intention was all that was presented and/or required at that point. Apparently, he does not have proof as to whether she ever did anything more than “pledge” varying sums to either charity. The “intention” transitioned into a formal “pledge”, NOTHING more.

***** Surely the importance of having verifiable, credible proof of her actual fulfillment of that ”intention” with something more than the charity’s acknowledgment of a formal pledge - e.g. receipts, cancelled bank checks, personal confirmation letters from the charities, etc. - was not lost on this judge, was it?

Thanks Moonbeam for the links. I had read that interview before but it was good to re-read. It is also good background for any new zoners that may not have seen it before.

Thanks for the video refs Granna, Unfortunately, I have to wait until I am alone in the house to play videos (with sound) or other people in the house think I'm an obsessive, crazy old man. It's best (for me) they don't get confirmation or any tangible evidence at this point ;) I will play in the next 12 or so hours.

Highlighting is mine. The judge seems to have projected his own prejudices onto his verdict on a number of occasions. He provided his own new and totally unfounded explanation for how Johnny had his finger sliced off, and he told us how Amber must have felt during this whole scripted fiction. In fact, the script has been re-written multiple times.
