The Johnny Depp Amber Heard legal drama continues to unfold as they try to find an amicable resolution to their less than two-year marriage.
The latest bump in the court proceedings involved the “Friday Night Lights” actress’ lawyer Samantha F. Spector who withdrew a statement she issued when the former couple finally reached a $7 million financial settlement.
As if the retraction was not enough, the lady lawyer also expressed her regret to the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor for releasing the controversial statement, which somehow put the couple in a bad light.
Spector’s apology was timely, as it helped clear the air on the real score between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard – particularly regarding rumors that the latter was supposedly a gold digger.
According to the statement released by Spector and fellow lawyer Joseph Koenig, they were both “pleased” with the results of the case, adding their client “was finally vindicated in the Court of Public Opinion,” reported Entertainment Tonight.
However, Spector withdrew her statement later in the day, as the explained that the comments she gave out where made without the prior knowledge of the “Pineapple Express” star.
“The statement is untrue and we retract it, without qualification,” the lawyer’s retraction read. “My assertion that Amber Heard has been vindicated in the court of public opinion is not true.”
Sources who are privy to the case revealed that it was reportedly the “Alice In Wonderland” actor who asked for the retraction.
It can be recalled that a judge dismissed on Tuesday the domestic violence filed by the “Danish Girl” actress against the “Edward Scissorhands” star, according to People.
In its ruling, the court likewise terminated the temporary restraining order it issued against Johnny Depp, which has helped pave the way for a “win-win” settlement with Amber Heard.
