The trial of Johnny Depp (58) is only halfway through, but Amber Heard (36) already seems dissatisfied. The actress is said to be angry at the negative reports and how they are being received by people all over the world.
So, a few days before her independence from the platform (Wednesday), she did a short job and fired the entire PR team. As an insider told the New York Post, Heard was tired of reading negative news headlines about herself: “She was totally disappointed because she felt her side of the story wasn’t portrayed enough.”

Former Obama advisor fired
Heard has now gotten rid of Precision Strategies, which is run by former Obama adviser Stephanie Cutter (53). In 2012, Precision Strategies advised Barack Obama to be re-elected successfully.
According to reports, Heard has already hired a new consulting firm called Shane Communications to better put her in the public spotlight. The company’s president, David Sheen, has previous experience fighting Depp.
More about Operation Millions
He was hired by The Management Group, former directors of Johnny Depp, in the 2018 lawsuit against the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star. He managed to spread negative stories in the media about Depp’s profligacy, which is said to have thrown him $2 million a year out the window.
Can Heard still save her reputation?
But experts doubt Shane Communications can work effectively this time around. A PR insider: “After a story has appeared in the media for years, many have formed an opinion. And you can’t change that within three weeks in the middle of the process.”
In particular, because Heard has not been well received, especially on social media. The actress seems to have already guessed it. Because an insider revealed that Heard’s legal team tried unsuccessfully to persuade the judge not to allow the camera during the trial. (cth/fmu)
