One of Johnny Depp’s closest friends thinks Amber Heard is a “social show pony” bent on destroying the star.

Gina Deuters – wife of Depp’s longtime business partner and assistant Stephen Deuters – had a front row seat in the actor’s turbulent 15-month marriage with Heard, and claims he is the real victim among them. The legal battle is underway.

In her only interview since being forced to step down from the witness stand, Deuters told exclusively Page Six that she believes Heard thrives on drama.

“There was one thing Amber said at the wedding. He kind of leaned over to me and said, ‘Do you and Stephen fight before?” Kind of disturbing. [I thought]Deuters recalls, “Do you enjoy it?” , who has known Depp for nearly 20 years.

“I think there is a portion of amber [believes] Fighting is a passion. This means that there are sparks and fireworks [in the relationship]. [Amber] She is someone who is always used to getting what she wants. She is fully qualified and I think she made great demands in her divorce.”

Depp’s allegations were echoed at trial, Deuters claimed, “When [Amber] These demands were denied, I feel like, “I’m not going to get what I want so I’m going to destroy you.”

Deuters told us that her husband initially called Heard a “social show pony” after he inadvertently became the go-between for Depp and Heard’s marriage in his final difficult days.

“My husband called it a sociopathic show pony, and he definitely doesn’t regret it,” she explained. “Stephen, after all, was the moderator in the literal sense of the word…no one else wanted to do business with Amber, and Stephen would be the only person she could talk to.”

Depp, 58, is currently in court and is suing Heard, 36, 2018 Washington Post, editorial She wrote, describing herself in it as a victim of sexual violence. While the actress did not mention Depp by name in the piece, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star claimed it tarnished his reputation and career.

Deuters recently took a stand in Depp’s defense but did not have the opportunity to present her full evidence to a jury in Virginia as her testimony was removed from the record.

She was ordered to leave court on 14 April after Heard’s journalist friend Yves Barlow stepped in Deuters admitted to the judge that she watched clips from the trial online.

Speaking to Page Six, Deuters described Depp’s time with Heard as “less of a relationship and more of an amber conquest.”

“I immediately started taking her friends to his property,” she said. “It was so shocking how I finally isolated him from his family and friends…I definitely felt like we kind of lost him.”

Deuters told us she first found out that Heard was “cold” and was baffled by her behavior.

“When they first met, I would call her ‘Stepford’s wife.’ She baked cookies and took off his shoes after work. She remembers that everything was so weird.

Knowing that Amber was a self-confident feminist, it was strange that she was acting quite submissive, like the role of a cute little housewife. [But] This was all in the beginning – and it will change very quickly.”

In 2015, Deuters and her husband helped arrange the weddings between Depp and Heard. The two tied the knot at Depp’s late mother Betty Sue’s Los Angeles home, followed by a party on his private island in the Bahamas in 2015.

“[Amber was] Deuters claimed to be in complete control…everything was rushed into marriage. “It all happened so quickly, that Johnny’s family was honestly not notified and some of them weren’t able to get down there in time.”

Regarding the Bahamas event, Deuters said it “felt very much” like an acquisition.

“Amber Heard’s party was the opposite of their wedding. I remember her father giving a speech and was kind of hanging around the area [of the island], saying something like, “Look, honey, it’s all yours now,” she recalls. “My heart sank a little…were they more excited about all the wealth they’ve been married to, or was this about love?”

“When you see a friend or family member progressing toward a relationship that you don’t personally think is healthy for them, it’s tough because you can’t stop it completely,” Deuters continued.

“It was very heartbreaking over the years to see him deteriorate physically and emotionally. Then in the end he was very upset about the breakdown of his marriage. He suffered so much through it.”

Deuters insisted to Page Six that she had never witnessed Depp behave aggressively toward a woman, saying, “I was with him when he was drinking and doing drugs and smoking weed, and his behavior never turned disgusting. I never saw him lose his temper.”

Describing the actor as a “dear friend,” she continued, “By all means, their relationship has been choppy, but I just know Johnny wouldn’t hit a woman.

“I can sleep at night knowing I am supporting my boyfriend. I totally feel that he has been a victim of domestic violence and that he deserves justice.”

She added, “Now I see why he wanted the cameras; so the audience could hear him and others talk directly about their experiences. He finally felt his voice was heard and that meant a lot to him.”
