The exchange began on Sunday, July 24, when the music journalist tweeted: “Depp to lawyer Camille Vasquez: ‘Hey you know how you have that mate who can pretend to be a psychologist? If we have her over for dinner do you think she’ll agree to make up that my ex-wife has Borderline Personality Disorder?'”
In response, Lauri Loewenberg, a Certified Dream Analyst who has been on The Dr. Oz Show, Live With Kelly and Ryan, Today and more, said: “I worry for Eve. She’s giving #amberheard everything she’s got. But once Amber feels Eve is no longer worthy, she will turn on her physically, emotionally & psychologically. #AmberHeardIsNotAlone in being a female abuser. We need to support Eve when the inevitable happens.”
Barlow replied: “Tell you what, Lauri. I’ll blink twice if I urgently need your dream interpretation services, yeh?”
Judge Penney S. Azcarate told Page Six at the time: “She was tweeting live from my courtroom … and I know the deputies took her out because she was texting. That’s against the court order,” she said. “Ms. Barlow is not coming back into the courtroom during this trial.”
Depp, 59, sued his ex-wife for $50 million after she published an op-ed in The Washington Post in 2018 titled, “I spoke up against sexual violence—and faced our culture’s wrath.”
Though she did not mention the Pirates of the Caribbean star by name, she referred to herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” Depp and his lawyers argued that she implied he abused her throughout their marriage.
Heard later filed a countersuit for $100 million, but Depp won the case on June 1. He was awarded $15 million in damages by a jury. Heard would only have to pay him $10.35 million, though, due to a Virginia law capping punitive damages. She was awarded $2 million in damages from her countersuit after he was found to have defamed her.
On July 21, Heard’s lawyers filed a notice to appeal the verdict. A spokesperson for Depp responded to the motion, telling Newsweek: “We remain confident in our case and that this verdict will stand.”
That same day, Barlow shared a cryptic tweet, seemingly referring to the appeal. “Anyone, once again: Amber Heard is the most courageous woman in Hollywood. Goodnight y’all.”
Barlow, who is Scottish but now lives in Los Angeles, recently made headlines for her involvement in Shania Twain’s documentary, Not Just a Girl.
Fans of the singer revealed they would not be watching the Netflix original due to Barlow’s involvement.
“I love listening to your music, especially on the school run, but I won’t be watching this if Eve Barlow has anything to do with it,” one Twitter user said. “I’m really sorry. Good Luck.” Another said it was “very disappointing” and agreed they wanted “nothing to do with it” if Barlow was “a part of it.”
The messages came following a report that found Heard and her supporters were subjected to “one of the worst cases of cyberbullying and cyberstalking by a group of Twitter accounts.”
