Bombshell Aquaman 2 report alleges Jason Momoa dressed as Johnny Depp to taunt Amber Heard
Los Angeles, California - A bombshell report detailing the set of Aquaman 2 has exposed the dramatic behind-the-scenes events, including Jason Momoa's alleged attempts to have Amber Heard cut from the film and reported taunting of her over her trials with ex-husband Johnny Depp.
According to recently released notes from the 37-year-old's therapist, Dr. Dawn Hughes, Heard shared that she believed Momoa, who she also claimed arrived to set drunk, wanted her to be booted from the movie and taunted her in an attempt to get her out.
Heard said that the 44-year-old actor intentionally dressed like her ex-husband, Johnny Depp,
Heard and Depp went to court in 2022 after the 60-year-old Edward Scissorhands star sued his ex-wife for defamation after she accused him of domestic violence. Though Depp lost a libel suit in the UK over such allegations, he won the widely-publicized US trial in 2022, with Heard winning one of her three defamation counterclaims.
According to Variety, Heard also told her therapist that director James Wan would "raise his voice" at her and seemingly blame her for the media circus surrounding the trial.
Elon Musk reportedly saved Amber Heard's role in Aquaman 2
The outlet revealed that the 52-year-old Tesla CEO penned a letter to the studio "threatening to burn the house down" if Heard was fired.
Variety further clarified that Warner Bros. had been considering dropping her ahead of the sequel before the defamation suit was brought forth by Depp, instead blaming a supposed "lack of chemistry" with Momoa.
Production insiders also told the outlet that Heard's role was "significantly" reduced in the sequel, with at least two scenes ending up on the cutting room floor.
Tensions are still high within the DC movie's cast, with Variety reporting Momoa may have blocked Heard on social media after unfollowing her over the summer.
With the SAG-AFTRA strike still ongoing, the actors are not currently able to promote the film, but should a resolution be reached soon, Momoa and Heard may have to helm a press tour together ahead of its release.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to be released in theaters on December 20.
