Now Johnny Depp And Amber Heard Are Arguing In Court Over A Poo

This is getting messy.

At this point, it’s hard to remember a time when Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were happily married and not battling out in court for the world to see. Sadly, their messy legal battle has taken a seemingly petty turn and now the pair are arguing over a poo.

According to multiple reports, Depp testified in court this week that Heard “may have once pooped in their bed as a ‘prank”.

It’s not the first time poo-gate has come up in the Depp vs. Heard legal proceedings. The Mirror reports that during opening arguments, Depp’s legal team told the court, “Depp who in the end was forced to finally call time on this relationship, largely after behaviour by her and her friends following her birthday party in their flat in April 2016 (including he says, one of them defecating on his bed, something which Ms Heard blames on their tiny dog).”

Depp also addressed the poo incident, reportedly saying, “I understand that the following morning [after the party] Ms Heard (or possibly one of her friends) defecated in our shared bed.”

“On 12 May 2016, Ms Heard confessed to our estate manager, Kevin Murphy, that leaving the faeces in the bed had been ‘just a harmless prank’ thereby effectively acknowledging that she had been responsible, whereas she had previously sought to blame our dogs,” he said.

Later, he insisted their Yorkshire Teacup terriers were “too tiny to jump onto the bed nor able to leave faeces like that which was deposited on the bed,” according to the Mirror. 

The fact that these two are arguing over poop is mind-boggling, but the poo-in-bed saga has been kicking around for two years now. Reports of the incident first surfaced back in 2018 when Heard’s representatives claimed “Boo [their dog] has some serious bowel control issues.”

“There was never a joke, it wasn’t something done to be disrespectful,” the rep told the Mirror. “It was an innocent thing, it’s what pets will do.”

Perhaps the worst part of Depp and Heard’s legal battle is that the infamous poo is just the tip of a very big iceberg. The former couple have been locked in a public war for several years now, even though they officially split up in 2017.

Speaking of high profile celebrity divorces, hear about Jennifer Garner’s been getting on after splitting from Ben Affleck:

Currently, Johnny Depp is testifying in court as part of a suit he filed against The Sun over a 2018 article in which the publication called him a “wife beater.”

In a statement, Depp alleged Amber Heard was “sociopathic; she is a narcissist, and she is completely emotionally dishonest.”

“I am now convinced that she came into my life to take from me anything worth taking and then destroy what remained of it,” he reportedly added.

Who knows when the battle between these two will end, but quite clearly, this relationship was not meant to be.

Come Cringe At This ‘7th Heaven’ Star Who Gave Ivan Milat A Shoutout On Cameo

“We need more people in the world like you."

If you aren’t across Cameo, set some time aside and take a deep dive. It’s a very weird and wonderful website where you can pay all kinds of ‘celebs’ to send you a custom video message. However, this week – Cameo took a rather cringeworthy turn when someone fooled a 7th Heaven star into giving Australia’s most notorious serial killer, Ivan Milat, a friendly shoutout.

Australian comedian Tom Armstrong recently took to TikTok to explain his prank, asking his followers “do you think I could get an American celebrity to shoutout Australia’s most notorious serial killer?”

He then shared an image of Beverly Mitchell, who played Lucy Camden on mid ‘00s family drama series 7th Heaven and proceeded to play her Cameo message. Warning: this will induce serious cringe.

“Hey Ivan, not many people pick up hitchhikers anymore but you really helped out the backpacker gang,” Mitchell began. “And you belong in 7th Heaven.” 

“Thank you,” she continued. “We need more people in the world like you. So, Ivan Milat – I hope I said it right – sending you lots of love and thank you again for being such a big fan, and for being awesome, and being you.”

ICYMI, Ivan Milat was an Australian serial killer who was convicted of murdering seven backpackers in 1996. 

Speaking of TikTok, hear about how it’s literally saving lives below:

Beverly Mitchell’s heartfelt shoutout to Milat is awkward to say the least – but it’s not the first time a celeb has been duped into sending virtual love to the wrong place. 

In 2019, Public Enemy rapper Flavor Flav was fooled into sending a personalised message to disgraced Cardinal George Pell. 

“Yo, George Pell – I gotta say, happy retirement my man” Flav said in the video. “I know you ran a boys choir, and all of the boys on the choir respected you, and collected you.”

George Pell was found guilty in December 2018 by a jury and convicted of five crimes relating to the abuse of two choirboys in 1996 when he was the Arch-Bishop of Melbourne. This year, Pell walked free from prison and had all his convictions quashed following an appeal to the High Court of Australia.

Not sure Flavor Flav, or Beverly Mitchell, knew who they were sending their support to but it’s a lesson in always Googling someone’s name before you give them a shoutout.

Come For Gigi Hadid's Baby Bump And She Will Clap Back Twice As Hard

Roasted.

The sad reality of being a celebrity is that your private life is constantly monitored, scrutinised and publicised. However, for model Gigi Hadid – making claims about her pregnancy is where she draws the line. 

British Vogue recently tweeted a story with the headline ‘Gigi Hadid Reveals How She Disguises Her Pregnancy’ which did not go down well with the soon-to-be mummy model.

“Disguise…?” Hadid responded. “I said in a baggy jumpsuit the front and side views are visually different stories – not that that was intentional or I was trying to hide anything.”

“Will be proud and happy to share ‘insight’ when I feel like it, thanks,” she added.

Later, she tweeted, “For now I am proudly experiencing and sharing this time with my family and loved ones.”

The comment British Vogue and Hadid are referring to was posted during an Instagram Live with activist Sophia Roe. When a fan asked how Hadid keeps her baby bump under wraps, she  responded, “this angle and the really baggy jumpsuit make for an optical illusion. From the side it’s a different story.”

Speaking of young celeb couples, hear about Justin and Hailey Bieber’s marriage woes below:

Unfortunately, it’s not the first time the media has spoken for Gigi Hadid and her pregnancy. 

At the end of April, Hadid confirmed that she and partner Zayn Malik were expecting their first child together. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Hadid said, “obviously, you know, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support so…”

Gigi Hadid isn’t the only celebrity attempting to reclaim control over what is published about her private life. 

In April, Eva Mendes responded to a fan asking why she doesn’t post photos of her husband Ryan Gosling or their daughters.

“I’ll talk about them of course, with limits, but I won’t post pictures of our daily life. And since my children are still so little and don’t understand what posting their image really means, I don’t have their consent. And I won’t post their image until they’re old enough to give me consent.”

“As far as Ryan and I, it just works for us this way, to stay private,” she wrote. “Sending loads of love to you at this time.”

George and Amal Clooney took legal action against a French magazine that published images of their newborn twins without permission, Halle Berry told California legislators in 2013 “these are little innocent children who didn’t ask to be celebrities,” and when Emily Blunt and John Krasinski debuted their daughter Hazel to the world, the actor tweeted, “Pics of kids should only come direct from parents.”

It’s totally fair enough that Gigi Hadid wants to control the narrative around her pregnancy – it’s such a special, personal moment and she deserves respect and privacy during this time.
