Unsealed Depp v. Heard court docs reveal ‘Aquaman’ actress was 'exotic dancer'
Amber Heard had a "brief stint as an exotic dancer," and her ex-husband Johnny Depp did not want his friendship with disgraced rocker Marilyn Manson outed at trial.After Johnny Depp won his defamation case against Amber Heard with a jury awarding him $10.35 million, Judge Penney Azcarate ordered the release of the secret documents on July 13.The documents were published online over the weekend by legal commentator Andrea Burkhart, who crowd-sourced more than $3,300 to purchase the records.The court papers detail the behind-the-scenes wrangling on both sides to try to get evidence admitted and kept out of the Fairfax County Circuit trial in Virginia.A March 22 motion outlined Heard’s opposition to Depp’s team’s attempt to present damaging information about her past to the jury.Heard's lawyer Elaine Bredehoft argued that Depp was trying to introduce "irrelevant personal matters" – including "Amber’s brief stint as an exotic dancer years before she met Mr. Depp," nude pictures of her and "unfounded allegations" that she had worked as a sex worker. "Nude pictures of Amber Heard or comments about stripping or escort services would be highly distracting and unfairly prejudicial to the extent they portray Amber Heard as a sex symbol instead of a women's rights activist against domestic abuse," Bredehoft wrote.TOPSHOT - US actress Amber Heard waits before the jury announced a split verdict in favor of both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard on their claim and counter-claim in the Depp v.

India Following China Satellite Tracking Vessel’s Visit To Sri Lanka Port
COLOMBO (News 1st); India's defence and security establishment is closely following the planned visit of a Chinese space and satellite tracking research vessel to the Hambantota Port next week, sources familiar with the development said on Monday.There are apprehensions about the possibility of the vessel's tracking systems attempting to snoop on Indian installations while being on their way to the Sri Lankan port.People familiar with the development said though the Chinese vessel 'Yuan Wang 5' is not a military platform, the visit could also be a precursor to similar forays by Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) ships to the island nation."It is a development that could have implications for India's security interests and we are keenly monitoring the proposed visit," said one of the people cited above.The Chinese ship is reportedly visiting Hambantota Port from August 11 to 17, weeks after Sri Lanka witnessed a major political turmoil following massive mass protests over the country's worst economic crisis in decades.It is learned that the Indian Navy would closely follow the journey as well as the stay of the ship in Sri Lankan waters.The ties between India and Sri Lanka had come under strain after Colombo permitted a Chinese nuclear-powered submarine to dock in one of its ports in 2014. It is understood that India has already apprised Sri Lanka about its concerns over the proposed visit of the Chinese vessel to the Hambantota Port.
