Actress Amber Heard has recently been accused of staging a shopping spree at TJ Maxx, with evidence suggesting that she and her sister were responsible for creating the whole story.
The initial story seemed too good to be true, with many inconsistencies in the place she was spotted and the way in which the footage was taken, leading many to question its authenticity.
A new report from Radar Online, however, has provided more detailed evidence that suggests the whole thing was staged.
According to an expert who deals with paparazzi material, there is no way a photographer wouldn’t want credit for taking a picture that will make all the headlines around the world.
Further evidence also suggests that Amber Heard’s sister was the one who took both the pictures and the video.
In the footage, the actress appears to have a basket full of clothing from TJ Maxx and she leaves it unattended as soon as she realizes she is being filmed.
Initially, there was a lot of sympathy for Amber Heard when the first headlines started coming out, with reports stating that she was broke or going through financial issues.
However, the evidence now suggests that she only wants people to feel sorry for her with this latest stunt.
It’s not clear why she would do this, but some suggest that she may have wanted to get the public off her case after losing the trial or perhaps to offer an image of a broke person who can’t pay Johnny Depp his money.
Regardless of the intentions and the outcome, Amber Heard’s reputation has taken another hit.
Her inner circle was complaining about Youtubers and celebrity gossip accounts going after her last week, but this latest development is unlikely to help her case.
It seems as though she doesn’t have a PR team that can tell her these staged shenanigans are not in her best interest.
The images were first “sold” to TMZ, who seem to have a knack for getting scoops like this one.
It’s worth noting that no celebrity is ever spotted in the Hamptons just out on the streets, so paparazzi usually stay away from those areas.
Perhaps Amber Heard thought she could get away with it because of this.
In any case, the whole thing has backfired on her, and her damage control skills are poor.
She clearly needs a new PR firm to help her out with these things.
Let the professionals do their work so you don’t get caught red-handed.
Regardless of the intentions and the outcome, TJ Maxx loves all this publicity.
It’s not yet clear what the fallout from this will be, but it’s likely that Amber Heard’s reputation will take another hit.
Only time will tell if she can recover from this latest scandal.
