Heard’s attorney Eric George told People magazine that Depp’s legal action is “frivolous” and an attempt to silence his ex-wife but “she will not be silenced.”

Depp’s attorney Adam Waldman told the magazine “we hardly intend to silence Ms. Heard” but “look forward to holding the overwhelming video, photographic and eyewitness evidence we finally possess up against Amber Heard’s (so far silent) attempts to explain the inexplicable”.

“Mr. Depp’s actions prove he is unable to accept the truth of his ongoing abusive behavior,” Heard’s representation said. “But while he appears hell-bent on achieving self-destruction, we will prevail in defeating this groundless lawsuit and ending the continued vile harassment of my client by Mr. Depp and his legal team.”

Depp’s lawsuit is also accusing Heard of having a romantic relationship with Tesla founder Elon Musk “no later than one month after” she and Depp married in 2015. The lawsuit alleges that Heard received “late night” visits from Musk at the Los Angeles penthouse that Depp and Heard shared. The affair happened while Depp was allegedly out of the country.

Johnny Depp married Amber Heard in February 2015, but the actress filed for divorce on May 23, 2016. Heard got a temporary restraining order against Depp after she claimed he had been verbally and physically abusive during the marriage. Depp claimed Heard assaulted him by throwing a vodka bottle at him a month into their marriage, which injured his hand. The divorce was settled on August 16, 2016, which required Depp to pay heard $7 million.
