It looks like Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation case won’t be ending anytime soon. The case that began in early April in Virginia’s Fairfax County Court took a week off and now the hearing has started up again. After a series of shocking revelations made by Amber Heard this week, now Johnny Depp’s former agent, Joel Mandel, revealed some shocking habits of the Hollywood actor and claimed that his “unprofessional behavior” is the reason behind the downfall of his career.
During recent testimony Thursday, the court heard about Depp’s on-set behaviors from his former agent, who worked with the actor for nearly three decades.
Jacobs, who appeared virtually in court, claimed the 58-year-old actor is a complicated star. “At first he wasn’t and it got a lot more complicated over the last 10 years of my representation,” he said, via Daily Mail.
Speaking about Depp’s “unprofessional behavior,” he said according to Daily Mail, “Depp used to be late-onset, constantly, on virtually every movie. I would get yelled at. I never told him you’re a difficult client, but I was very honest with him and said you need to stop doing this, this is hurting you. And he did.”
She also claimed that Johnny’s behavior changed because of his increased alcohol and drug use. When Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft asked if the actor ”romanticized the drug culture,” to which Jacobs agreed via Daily Mail. She also answered in the affirmative when asked about Depp’s fundamental issues with anger.
In addition, he also revealed that Depp was financially broke in 2016 and asked for $20 million from the talent agency. In addition, she described his habit of spending a lot of money on things like security and doctors, among others.
She said, “He needed the money. He just expected us to do it.”
Meanwhile, actress Eva Green reacted to the defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard. Speaking from Depp’s side, she wrote on her Instagram account, “I have no doubt that Johnny will emerge with his good name and wonderful heart revealed to the world, and life will be better than ever for him and his family.”
