Johnny Depp reportedly attempted to get his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard, fired from Aquaman amidst their contentious divorce.

Despite Warner Bros. ignoring the ongoing petition asking for Amber Heard to be replaced as Mera in the upcoming Aquaman sequel after the UK High Court found allegations of Depp being a “wife beater” to be “substantially true,” it’s now been revealed that Depp wanted her out on the first one.
