James Franco to be impeached following Amber Heard affair

0

The misfortunes of James Franco keep piling up.

After eliciting a backlash by admitting he slept with his students, Page Six exclusively learned that Franco was served in the long legal battle between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.

Franco, 43, will be questioned about whether he had an affair with Heard while she was still married to Depp.

Depp’s lawyers also want to ask the actor if he saw the alleged bruises on Heard’s face.

Franco will be sitting early next year for the filing in Depp’s $ 50 million libel lawsuit against Heard.

Depp is suing Heard in Virginia for a 2018 Washington Post op-ed she wrote in which she described being a victim of domestic violence. She didn’t mention her ex by name, but he says it’s clear she was referring to him as her abuser. Depp denies any abuse.

Depp sent the subpoena to Franco after a May 2016 surveillance video showed him entering an elevator with Heard 24 hours after a scuffle in which Heard claimed Depp gave him a butter eye noir.

Franco and Heard are seen exiting the elevator together on the penthouse floor, where Depp and Heard had shared an apartment.

Depp’s legal team wants to interview Franco as a “witness” to see if he and Heard discussed the fight or if Franco saw any injuries to Heard’s face.

In the lawsuit, Depp said: “I have vehemently denied Ms. Heard’s allegations since she first made them in May 2016… owning every day of the previous week. I will continue to deny them for the rest of my life. I never mistreated Ms. Heard or any other woman.

Depp said he took legal action “not only to clear my name and restore my reputation, but to try to bring clarity to the women and men whose lives have been damaged by abuse and to who Ms. Heard has repeatedly lied to claiming to be their spokesperson.

Heard’s legal team had claimed that Franco was living in the building at the time of the incident and had simply taken the elevator together. Depp’s lawyers said it was a “lie”.

The trial date is set for April 11, 2022 in Fairfax County, Va., And is expected to last 12 days.

Meanwhile, Franco just admitted in an extensive interview that he was “addicted to sex” and “could never be loyal to anyone”, until he met his current girlfriend Isabel Pakzad.
