Johnny Depp’s ongoing legal battle against his former wife Amber Heard has taken an interesting turn.
On the internet, TikTok users have come up with a new conspiracy theory that suggests Heard’s lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, may be a secret fan of Depp.
The theory was fueled by a video that went viral on TikTok, showing a woman who closely resembles Bredehoft at the premiere of Depp’s film “The Lone Ranger” in London in 2013.
The woman was reportedly seen taking photos of Depp from behind a red carpet barricade.
Depp’s fans on TikTok believe that the video is evidence of Bredehoft’s admiration for the star and that this could impact the ongoing case.
Depp is suing Heard for $50 million in damages and $350,000 in legal fees, accusing her of damaging his public reputation with an op-ed she wrote in the Washington Post that referred to domestic abuse allegations against him.
Despite the contentious relationship between Depp and Heard, which has been evident from the mountain of evidence already presented in court, some Depp fans are confident that he will emerge victorious in the case.
The hashtag #JusticeForJohnny has been widely used on TikTok, amassing 245.6 million views at the time of writing.
The TikTok user who started the conspiracy has gained more than 11 million views in less than a week, causing a stir in the comments section.
Some users have joked that even Heard’s legal team is secretly on Depp’s side, while others have speculated that Bredehoft might have become Heard’s lawyer just to see Depp in person.
The video has inspired heated debate among TikTok users, with some finding the theory amusing and others defending Bredehoft’s professional integrity.
“Even Amber’s team are on Johnny’s side,” one user quipped.
“What if she is purposely doing bad, so that Johnny can win and she actually likes him?” another asked.
“I’m convinced she became her lawyer to see him,” another commented.
One user wrote, “I cannot tell you how hard I laughed seeing this. I really hope Amber sees this.”
Meanwhile, another commented, “it doesn’t matter if she likes him or not. She was hired by Amber and it’s her job to defend her.”
The video of the woman who resembles Bredehoft has certainly added another layer of intrigue to the already complex and controversial case.
The trial is still ongoing, and it remains to be seen what impact, if any, the conspiracy theory will have on the proceedings.
Nevertheless, it serves as a reminder of the power of social media and its ability to spark and shape public opinion.
