Amber Heard Accused Jason Momoa Of Concerning On-Set Behaviour


Amber Heard, known for her role in “Aquaman,” reportedly claimed in therapy notes that her co-star Jason Momoa showed up intoxicated on the set of the upcoming sequel and dressed like her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, while demanding her firing.

According to a Variety report that delves into behind-the-scenes drama surrounding “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” therapist Dr. Dawn Hughes documented Heard’s allegations, though these notes were not admissible in a defamation trial between Depp and Heard.

The notes indicate: “Jason said he wanted me fired. Jason drunk — late on set. Dressing like Johnny. He has all the rings too.”

Heard lost her 2019 defamation case against Depp, who sued her after she referred to herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse” in a 2018 op-ed. She expressed a desire to have her therapy notes, which spanned years dating back to 2011, admitted as evidence after losing the case. Fans of Depp later funded court fees to obtain her therapy notes and released them.

This latest report emerges just ahead of the highly anticipated release of the $215 million “Aquaman” sequel. HuffPost reached out to both Momoa and Heard for comment, and representatives for both actors declined to comment when approached by Variety.

The report was met with a response from a spokesperson for DC Films, which produces the “Aquaman” films. The DC Films spokesperson stated: “Jason Momoa conducted himself in a professional manner at all times on the set of ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.’”

Additionally, an anonymous source countered the claims, asserting that Momoa, known for his professional demeanor, did not arrive on set intoxicated and has always embraced a bohemian style of dress.

The therapy notes also contained remarks about James Wan, the director of the “Aquaman” franchise, whom Heard accused of bullying behavior. The documents recount Heard’s interactions with Wan, stating: “He raised his voice @ me — ‘I can’t even post about Aquaman’ — made it like it was my fault — I said ‘I’m sorry.’ Nobody could take selfies with me on set given blackout.”

In response to these accusations, the DC spokesperson assured Variety that Wan consistently treats his cast “with the utmost respect.”

The article also mentions that in 2018, Heard was nearly fired from the sequel. Executives stated in court that this decision was not related to her public dispute with Depp but was influenced by her lack of chemistry with Momoa. According to Variety, “Aquaman” executives had already informed Heard of their intention to replace her in the sequel before Depp’s lawsuit gained media attention.

Elon Musk, who was in a relationship with Heard from 2017 to 2018, reportedly played a role in preventing her recasting. An insider familiar with the behind-the-scenes turmoil revealed that Musk sent a letter to Warner Bros., where he threatened drastic measures if Heard was not reinstated for “Aquaman 2.”

The first “Aquaman” film garnered $1.15 billion at the global box office, surpassing expectations and becoming the highest-grossing DC movie at that time, surpassing stand-alone films featuring more iconic characters such as Batman and Superman. The upcoming sequel, “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” is set to release on Dec. 20, and it remains to be seen whether it can replicate the success of the original amidst reports of reshoots, low test scores during production, and the controversies involving Heard and Momoa.
