Johnny Depp’s former assistant Stephen Deuters claims the texts he allegedly exchanged with Amber Heard about Johnny Depp’s abuse were doctored, but now a forensics expert is weighing in and says the messages are legit!
Kevin Cohen, a computer forensic consultant, said in a signed court document that he authenticated the May 25, 2014 time stamp on the text exchange, which was obtained by Entertainment Tonight. “On Sunday, June 5, 2016, I was asked to examine iPhone backups of Amber Heard. It was her normal routine to sync her iPhone on the computer,” Cohen says in the signed doc, obtained by People. “I forensically imaged and examined the device containing Ms. Heard’s iPhone backups, and I conclude that the backups are authentic.”
The magazine got their hands on even more text messages that allegedly show Heard and Deuters discussing Depp meeting with doctors in Boston around the time he was in Massachusetts shooting Black Mass. One of the docs reportedly has the same last name as “a prominent Los Angeles addiction specialist.”
Deuters maintains that he was not aware of any incident in which Depp was allegedly abusive toward Heard, and would testify under oath he never had a conversation with Heard about the alleged abuse.
Who knows what to believe, but earlier this week it was also reported that Heard didn’t appear to have bruises on her face in the days after the alleged iPhone attack. Two concierges in the building where Heard and Depp once lived together claim they saw the actress around the building, wearing no makeup — and appearing to have a totally perfect complexion.
The daytime concierge saw Amber in the lobby, and she shared her observations with a lawyer who lives in the building, who then told TMZ. Depp’s legal team may call both of the concierges to testify later this month, during the trial for a restraining order.
