James Franco has found himself wrapped up in the ongoing legal battle between Johnny Depp and his estranged wife Amber Heard.
The actor has been issued a subpoena by Depp’s legal team after he was caught snuggling with Heard on surveillance video taken inside an elevator at Depp’s Los Angeles apartment building.
Depp and his lawyers now want to Franco testify about his visit to Heard on May 21, 2016 and state whether or not the actress had any visible injuries on her face or body.
It was just one day prior when Depp left Heard bloodied and bruised in an altercation that resulted in their decision to terminate their 15-month marriage, according to claims she made in multiple court documents.
Depp has denied this allegation, and wants Franco to be questioned under oath about what he saw that day when he met with Heard according to his attorney Adam Waldman.
‘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 and when she went to court with painted on ‘bruises’ to obtain a Temporary Restraining Order on May 27,’ Waldman told The Blast.
