Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's ongoing battle is far from over, and now it looks like James Franco is getting pulled into it, too.
Johnny's lawyers are reportedly wanting to question James as a witness after finding video of him and Amber in an elevator the day after Johnny allegedly attacked her (in what they're calling the "marriage-ending fight").
“We are interested in James Franco and Elon Musk as fact witnesses because we have evidence they are men who saw Amber Heard’s face in the days and nights between when she claimed Mr. Depp smashed her in the face on May 21 [in 2016] and when she went to court with painted on ‘bruises’ to obtain a temporary restraining order on May 27,” said Johnny's attorney Adam Waldman.
Johnny is claiming that Amber used makeup to create bruises when she went to the police to file her initial report, and his lawyers want to ask James and Elon Musk what she looked like at the time in order to prove it.
The elevator footage allegedly shows Amber boarding the elevator, getting off on another floor and walking back in trailed by James.
At the end of the clip, James can be seen putting his forehead on Amber’s shoulder and she leans her head on his.
Amber's attorney Eric George told Fox News that his client and James once lived in the same apartment complex and were simply taking the elevator at the same time.
“This bogus story is just another lame attempt by Johnny Depp and his team to spread deliberately misleading information through the tabloid media so that he can continue to attack and abuse his ex-wife,” he said.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were married for just over a year before they separated in May 2016.
