The manager said Amber Heard dragged him to commit perjury. It was about Heard being charged with bringing her two dogs to Australia illegally.

Murphy confessed he was scared of losing his job if he didn’t commit perjury. Murphy said:

“She wanted me to say essentially that it was my fault in one way or another that the paperwork wasn’t completed so that I could take the blame for her.”

The Australian government arrested Amber Heard for bringing two Yorkshire terriers to the country illegally in July 2015. Kevin Murphy delivered a written statement to the court during Johnny Depp’s libel case.

He admitted that Heard told him to say that she didn’t know about Australian rules. And about bringing dogs into the country. Murphy told that Heard threatened him in case he didn’t follow her words. Murphy quoted Heard:

“I want your help on this. I wouldn’t want you to have a problem with your job.”

Murphy was charged cause of lying by making a misleading declaration to the Australian court. However, the estate manager was worried about losing his job. Sasha Wass during Depp’s deposition in London said:

“Why on Earth did you not go to Mr. Depp to ask him to intervene rather than just lying on oath?”

Murphy responded:

“Because Amber wielded a lot of power and would have made my life miserable.”

Murphy shared evidence of the case at the High Court Wednesday in London via video link from Chicago. He was charged with lying by The Sun’s lawyer, Sasha Wass. Pointed out that he had knowingly made a misleading declaration in the Australian court case. Murphy said he did so at Heard’s lead because he was scared of losing his job.

Heard is yet to give evidence in the case later this week. Depp is suing News Group Newspapers, publisher of The Sun, and the paper’s executive editor, Dan Wootton. It’s over an April 2018 article that called him a “wife-beater.” He strongly denies abusing Heard. Jhonny Depp and Amber Heard gave wildly differing statements about their volatile relationship. It began after they met on the set of the 2011 comedy The Rum Diary and married in Los Angeles in February 2015.
