A friend of Johnny Depp’s described his ex-wife Amber Heard as a “sociopathic show pony.”
Georgina Deuters told Page Six that Heard craves conflict and believes “fighting is passion” in a relationship.
Deuters was dismissed from the trial early on after she admitted to watching clips of it online.
A longtime friend of Johnny Depp described the actor’s ex-wife Amber Heard as a “sociopathic show pony.”
Georgina “Gina” Deuters — the wife of Stephen Deuters, one of Depp’s closest employees and collaborators — said she and her husband believe Heard seeks conflict.
“My husband called her a sociopathic show pony, and he certainly doesn’t regret it,” Gina Deuters told Page Six, speaking of Heard.
“Stephen, at the end, was quite literally the mediator,” she added, describing the couple’s messy split. “No one else wanted to deal with Amber, and Stephen would be the only person she could talk to.”
Depp is suing Heard, claiming she ruined his career by insinuating he physically abused her in a 2018 op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post. Heard is counter-suing, alleging Depp assaulted her on 10 occasions throughout their relationship.
Depp’s legal team called Deuters to the stand last month, but she was dismissed after she admitted to watching clips of the trial online, Insider previously reported.
Deuters told Page Six that Heard is “someone who is always used to getting what she wants.”
“I think there is a part of Amber that [believes] fighting is passion. It means there’s sparks, fireworks [in the relationship],” Deuters told the outlet.
She recalled an incident at a wedding in which she said Heard asked Deuters about fighting with her own husband.
“She kind of leaned into me and said, ‘Do you and Stephen ever fight?’ I responded, ‘We sometimes have an argument,’ and she was like, ‘No, Gina, like really fight?’ And it was kind of unnerving,” Deuters told Page Six.
Deuters went on to describe two “rushed” wedding ceremonies between Depp and Heard, in which she said Heard was “absolutely controlling.”
“She is quite entitled, and I think she made big demands in their divorce,” Deuters said. “When [Amber] was denied those demands, I feel she was like, ‘I am not going to get what I want so I am going to destroy you.'”
Heard has given alarming testimony during the trial, describing incidents of alleged physical and sexual violence at the hands of her ex. Depp, meanwhile, has described Heard as manipulative, jealous, and violent.
To Page Six, Deuters said she has been with Depp while he was “he was drinking, doing drugs and smoking weed,” and she has “never seen him lose his temper.”
“By all means, their relationship was volatile, but I just know that Johnny wouldn’t hit a woman,” Deuters told the outlet. “I absolutely feel he has been a victim of domestic abuse and he deserves justice.”
She added that she recently spent time with Depp in the United Kingdom.
“I can already see a weight has been lifted from his shoulders having given his testimony,” Deuters said. “Now I see why he wanted the cameras; so the public can hear him and others speak directly about their experiences. He has finally felt his voice has been heard and that means a lot to him.”
