Former representative said that Disney fired Johnny Depp, by Amber Heard
Previously, Christian Carino, a former Johnny Depp’s representative, and a friend of the couple, testified that Disney fired the actor for the op-ed article that actress Amber Heard published on The Washington Post, where she pointed to domestic violence.
According to his statements, the main producer of “Pirates of the Caribbean”, which was one of the most important projects for the actor, told him that they would not have Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow due to “the accusations and the scandal that Amber put together”.
In the statement of the former representative, he pointed out that the actor sent an email where he reproached Disney for not having formally notified him of his dismissal, due to the accusations he faced from Amber Heard.
