Johnny Deep Asks Judge to Deny Amber Heard’s Subpoena on Weinstein Company
Amber Heard is seeking to get details of former husband Johnny Depp’s dealings with Harvey Weinstein but the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor argues they’re not relevant to their legal battle.

AceShowbiz – Johnny Depp filed a petition on Friday, February 14, 2020 to quash a subpoena filed by his ex-wife Amber Heard, which would force The Weinstein Company to turn over details on the actor’s dealings with Harvey Weinstein.
The subpoena aims to seek discovery relating to Depp’s ongoing $50 million defamation lawsuit against her, but Depp claims the move is “is overbroad and seeks the production of documents that are not properly subject to discovery.”
The subpoena requests a number of documents, including all “communications between Mr. Depp and Harvey Weinstein,” in addition to documents “concerning any act of violence committed by Mr. Depp during the production or promotion of The Libertine” – a 2004 Weinstein-produced flick starring Depp.
The former couple is locked in a bitter legal battle against one another, with Depp suing the “Aquaman” actress after she penned an article for The Washington Post, claiming she was a victim of domestic abuse and alluding to allegations she made against Depp in their explosive 2016 divorce – which were withdrawn after they reached a settlement.
While Depp was not named in the piece, he insisted it was strongly inferred he was the perpetrator. Heard responded by detailing the “horrific” abuse she allegedly suffered at his hands.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor has insisted it was Heard that abused him.
