Amber Heard has fired Precision Strategies, her crisis public relations agency, only days before her testimony in the continuing legal fight with her ex-husband, Johnny Depp. According to the New York Post, Heard dismissed Precision Strategies on Thursday, citing unfavorable coverage from the slander trial.
According to The Wrap, Heard’s new team will be overseen by PR veteran David Shane and his business Shane Communications. Shane Communications previously represented The Management Group in a $25 million fraud case filed by Depp in 2017. That legal issue was resolved in 2018.
According to the report, Heard’s decision to switch her PR team comes due to frustration over what sources say are “her story not being told effectively”. Depp has testified over the past two weeks as part of the defamation trial in Virginia, Aspects of his testimony as well as that of various psychologists and others have made headlines, particularly over explicit and salacious details of their former relationship. Heard is expected to take the stand int he case as early as Tuesday.
