Former celebrity couple Amber Heard and Johnny Depp have been in the spotlight, undergoing one of the most closely watched celebrity trials in recent memory. After Depp filed a $50 million libel action against her for a 2018 opinion article in the Washington Post, both Depp and Heard spoke in front of a global audience in a Virginia courtroom.
Now that the case has been closed, people have begun to resurrect the narrative of Heard’s Mustang, which was stolen four times. Instead of being stolen, it was taken as part of Depp’s hoax the fourth time.
Amber Heard’s father, David Heard, and ex-husband, Johnny Depp, conned her into believing her 1968 Mustang was stolen for the fourth time. In the scene, they used a real patrol cruiser, as well as a dummy cop and a host of other actors.
If you watch the video, you’ll notice that Amber becomes unhappy and requests that her car be returned. Thankfully, the charade came to a close before it got out of hand. What was the purpose of the fake in the first place? Everything was done with the sole purpose of making Heard’s Mustang a far greater automobile.
Heard bought the car in 2003 when still a rising celebrity in Los Angeles, characterizing it as “a gorgeous piece of garbage” in its original state. He was overheard on Overhaulin’ explaining,
“For the first eight years of my existence in Los Angeles, the car cost me every money I had and continues to cost me.” Heard’s silver Mustang caused her distress not only because of the high maintenance expenditures, but also because it was stolen three times during her 12-year ownership, the most recent time for six months.
“[Each time it was stolen], I’d enhance my security system only to be [foiled] again,” the actress said on Jimmy Kimmel’s talk program. “Every time, I found it — once it took six months, but they got it.” The last time they gutted it, and it crushed me fairly hard.”
“I park it on the street for a minute and someone takes it for a joyride, but they always get it back,” says the driver “In a separate interview with the Sunday Mail, Heard stated. Depp and her father, on the other hand, were the ones who committed the “theft” in 2014.
To Heard’s amazement, the men came together to “abduct” the car and have it restored to its former glory by Chip Foose, a well-known California-based automotive designer.
The restoration, which included altering the car’s color from silver to red and installing an all-white interior, was documented by Overhaulin’.
