British feminists like Cherie Blair and Jess Phillips gather behind Amber Heard


Top-class British feminists have gathered behind Amber Heard during her ex-husband Johnny Depp's bomb smear process.

Cherie Blair, the lawyer and wife of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, is said to have spoken to the actress' legal team last week when the trial at Depp's high court started in the second week.

The couple met last year when they both spoke at the United Nations General Assembly in New York to deal with the unjustified detention of women, the Sunday Times reported.

Labor MP and Shadow Minister for Domestic Violence and Jess Phillips Protection also spoke to Heard.

"When I spoke to (Heard) about violence against women's policies and the UN, I didn't know how to stay calm and strong," she said. "She seemed incredibly together."

Ms. Phillips added that she was concerned that the trial had focused so much on Heard, who was "not even a party to the trial." She claimed that part of Heard's character analysis was "dangerous" and "irrelevant to the facts".

Depp sued News Group Newspapers, Sun’s parent company, for defamation of a 2018 article calling him a “thug”.

"It is very problematic because it is not a process (Heard) that she is involved in, she is a witness," added Ms. Phillips.

"People think she takes him to court. As a viewer, I feel Heard is on trial and she is not even involved in the process. & # 39;

Heard, who is due to testify before the High Court tomorrow, was supported in the nine-day trial by her partner Bianca Butti, sister Whitney, and lawyer Jennifer Robinson.

Robinson works at Doughty Street Chambers alongside Amal Clooney.

Despite the apparent support of several British feminists, Heard has lost the support of close friend and longtime women's rights activist Amanda de Cadenet.

Cadenet, who was expected to testify on behalf of News Group Newspapers, said she felt "by Miss Heard regarding Miss Heard's account of her relationship with Mr. Depp and the violence between them to have been led ".

The statement was read out to the High Court on Friday.

On Thursday, the court heard that British television presenter Miss de Cadenet had been "given up" as a potential witness.

David Sherborne for Depp said: “Miss de Cadenet was originally supposed to be a witness to the accused (the newspaper). It was listed with the friends of Miss Heard who came to testify.

"Then Miss de Cadenet felt that Miss Heard was misleading about Miss Heard's relationship with Mr. Depp and the violence between them."

The Caribbean actor Depp's 57-year-old curse has taken action against News Group Newspapers over a Sun-published headline calling him a "thug."

The 57-year-old Depp has rejected allegations that he physically abused Heard as "sick and completely untrue".

The 57-year-old Depp and the 34-year-old Heard met on the set of the comedy "The Rum Diary" from 2011 and got married in February 2015 in Los Angeles. They can be seen at the premiere of the film in November 2011 in London

The 57-year-old Depp has rejected allegations that he physically abused Heard as "sick and completely untrue".

It was alleged on the ninth day of Friday's trial Heard had secretly recorded how her interior designer was raging against Depp's lawyer for putting pressure on her to make a critical statement about the actress.

Laura Divenere, who set up the couple's penthouse in Los Angeles, said in her testimony that she had never seen Heard with injuries after a fight with Depp in May 2016.

In her written statement, she even claimed that 34-year-old Heard never spoke of becoming a victim of domestic violence during her time with Depp, whom she described as "delightful" and never aggressive.

The alleged clash has become a focus of Depp's high court showdown against The Sun newspaper.

But evidence of a conversation between her and Heard in which Divenere took action against Depp's US attorney Adam Waldman for relying on her to testify that Heard was physically abusive in her High Court testimony was then shared.

In the conversation, Ms. Divenere Waldman called the "biggest hole in the sun" after asking her to give up Heard's version of the controversial 2016 battle.

Last night Depp's lawyer told MailOnline: & # 39; This is another false narrative. In reality, Laura Divenere, a collaborator with Elon Musk and Amber Heard, was with Ms. Heard all week after her iPhone-to-the-face joke of May 21, 2016, and said Ms. Heard's face was visibly unharmed.

"In a recent email sent to Divenere to her and the Sun lawyers read in court, Ms. Divenere reconfirmed that her affidavit was true and that she herself wrote the final version."

The process continues.
