Meet Stephen Deuters, Johnny Depp Friend/Personal Assistant
Stephen Deuters started working as Johnny Depp’s personal assistant ever since 2004. Although he might not be one of the most visible faces on Johnny’s team, Stephen has appeared alongside the star at festivals like the 68th San Sebastian International Film Festival and the 16th Zurich Film Festival in 2020.
No wonder, Stephen was also labeled Johnny’s “former right-hand man,” by Page Six.
So, when Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard started their legal feud, it was only natural that Stephen was asked to testify on their behalf.
In their legal battle in 2020 — where Johnny sued News Group Newspapers for labeling him a “wife-beater” — Stephen claimed that he’s never seen Johnny abuse Amber. On the other hand, he’s witnessed, Amber being abusive towards Johnny “on many occasions.”
Also, at the time, personal texts (from May 26, 2016) between Stephen and actor Paul Bettany surfaced where Stephen called Amber a “Sociopathic show pony. Machiavellian overlord. Talentless cunt. Good riddance to bad shit.” And for this, Stephen has already apologized and claimed that he would never use such language to describe a woman.
When examined by Johnny’s lawyer, Stephen simply said that Johnny and Amber “were two people that were in love with each other that shouldn’t have been together.”
Fast forward to April 2022, Johnny again started another legal battle suing Amber for defamation to the tune of $50 million. Yet again, Stephen was then asked to testify on his behalf.
According to official court documents, Amber allegedly defamed Johnny in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed. Meanwhile, Amber also filed a countersuit accusing her ex-husband of allegedly orchestrating a “smear campaign” against her.
The proceeding began on April 11, 2022, and was expected to last a total of six weeks.
