Wife ‘Pulled An Amber’ In Unsealed Documents

According to newly-unsealed court documents, Marilyn Manson texted Johnny Depp in 2016 to say that his girlfriend “pulled an Amber.”

The shock rocker—whose real name is Brian Warner—allegedly messaged Depp, “I got an amber 2.0.” in relation to his then-girlfriend, now wife, Lindsay Usich.

Thousands of pages of documents filed in the Depp v. Heard defamation case were unsealed over the weekend and published online.

The documents, which were seen by Newsweek, include text messages between the Pirates of the Caribbean actor and his friend Manson, who is also embroiled in a legal dispute with an ex-partner.

Evan Rachel Wood was sued for defamation by her ex-fiance after publicly alleging that she was subjected to domestic abuse at the hands of the musician during their relationship.

During the blockbuster trial of Depp and Heard earlier this year, Depp testified that he had taken recreational drugs with Manson and that they were friends.

Now, text messages between the pair discussing Heard and Manson’s own partner Usich have been made public.

The unsealed documents include texts allegedly from Manson to Depp that said Usich filed a restraining order against him, alleging he “beat her up” and had drugs in his home.

“Lindsay just pulled an amber on me…please delete,” another alleged text found the in court documents read.

In response, Depp allegedly advised Manson “don’t take no s**t” and said it was important “not to give her what she wants.”

Depp added, per the documents: “Sociopathic behavior… it is f***ing real, my brother!! My ex-c**t is god**** TEXTBOOK!!”

Manson also apparently referenced a 2016 incident when police were called to Depp and Heard’s Los Angeles home and texted Depp, per the filing: “I got a serious police amber type scenarios with L’s family. I’m f***ing stressing. I don’t know if you are back but I need asylum somewhere because I think the cops might be headed my way.”

Newsweek has reached out to representatives for Depp and Manson for comment.

The newly-unsealed documents said that Depp’s legal team sought to ensure the texts with Manson were not used in court because they argued it would “smear Mr. Depp under a guilty by association theory.”

“Ms. Heard’s attempt to inset Marilyn Manson into this case lacks foundation and is wholly speculative and constitutes improper character evidence,” the filing read.

Following a televised trial in Virginia that concluded in late May, the jury ruled largely in Depp’s favor on June 1, awarding him $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages while, Heard, who had countersued for $100 million for nuisance, was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages by the jury. The punitive damages against Heard were later reduced from $5 million to $350,000 under a Virginia law that caps such damages.

Meanwhile, Westwold star Wood first publicly named Manson as her alleged abuser in a post on Instagram on February 1, 2021, in which she claimed Manson had “horrifically abused [her] for years” and said she was “brainwashed and manipulated” by him.

On the same day that Wood named Manson publicly, four other women also came forward and accused the musician of sexual and physical violence, as well as mental, physical and emotional abuse.

At least 16 women have now come forward to make allegations against Manson, according to Rolling Stone.

Manson has vehemently denied all allegations made against him and has launched a defamation lawsuit against Wood over her Phoenix Rising documentary about her claims.

On March 3, Manson’s legal team announced that a defamation lawsuit had been filed against Wood and “her on-again, off-again romantic partner” Ashley ‘Illma’ Gore in Los Angeles Superior Court.

“This detailed complaint has been filed to stop a campaign of malicious and unjustified attacks on Brian Warner,” Howard King, Manson’s attorney, told Newsweek at the time. “Years after the end of Evan Rachel Wood’s long-term relationship with Warner, she and her girlfriend Illma Gore recruited numerous women and convinced them to make false allegations against him—claims that Wood and Gore scripted for them.”

The unsealed documents also show that Depp’s team attempted to raise Heard’s “brief stint as an exotic dancer” in court, as well as “Amber Heard’s sister Whitney’s reality show video” and “Whitney and Amber’s past romantic relationships.”
