Amber Heard is reportedly so upset over the coverage she’s been getting in her court battle with Johnny Depp that she abruptly switched to a new PR team ahead of her testimony this week.
The “Aquaman” actress ditched crisis PR firm Precision Strategies Thursday after getting frustrated with the press she’s received since her bombshell defamation trial kicked off last month.
One source said, “She doesn’t like bad headlines,” while another said Heard is “frustrated with her story not being told effectively.”
Depp is suing Heard for $50 million, claiming his ex-wife defamed him in a 2018 op-ed in the Washington Post where she discussed being a victim of domestic violence.
Heard’s lawyer argue that Depp abused the actress physically and sexually.
The actress is expected to take the stand in Fairfax, Va., as soon as tomorrow (Tuesday). She now has consulting firm Shane Communications on retainer to help her get across her side better in the court of public opinion.
The sudden PR switch came after several brutal days of court testimony from Depp witnesses and a fiery social-media mob that turned against Heard.
Her new PR team, led by CEO David Shane, has worked against Depp before.
