In the wake of her seemingly silent deposition, Amber Heard was reportedly still in London on Friday, many miles from the Los Angeles courtroom where she was expected to appear at 10AM today in a domestic violence case against Johnny Depp.
According to TMZ, the actress had an "emergency" that made it impossible for her to make the court date. "To no fault of her own, Amber was unable to arrange for a flight to travel from London," read court documents.
Heard's lawyers are expected to ask to have the deposition moved to Saturday, Aug. 13, so that she has enough time to fly back to Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, Amber's legal camp is apparently not pleased with the way that Johnny's team has been handling the proceedings.
"Johnny's counsel continues to wage a malicious war against Amber in the Court of Public Opinion in an effort to intimidate and discourage Amber from telling the truth," claim her lawyers.
There was also a letter attached to the filing calling out Johnny's lawyer Laura Wasser for going back on their settlement, though she claims she had sent the agreement to her client for approval.
The latest wrangling comes after Heard reportedly refused to speak during the deposition, where she was expected to be asked about her allegations that Depp attacked her physically.
Amber filed a domestic violence suit against Johnny after they announced they were calling it quits this spring. At the time, she appeared in court with bruises on her face that she said were the result of Johnny throwing an iPhone at her.
Although Johnny and Amber had no prenuptial agreement, she's reportedly asking for spousal support.
"This has been incredibly upsetting for Amber but she knows she is doing the right thing," a source told E! News after she filed for the restraining order. "It has been very traumatic for her to finally speak out, but she needs to do what she can to protect herself."
Johnny's lawyers are expected to bring nearly two dozen witnesses to the stand to defend his claim that he did not attack Amber. Among the witnesses is his ex, Vanessa Paradis, who has spoken out on his behalf since Amber's allegations surfaced.
Johnny and Amber met on the set of 2009's "The Rum Diary" and began dating in 2012. They tied the knot in February 2015.
