Is this the real reason Johnny Depp divorced Amber Heard?

A lawsuit claims that Amber’s troubled film “London Fields” was implicated in her split from ex-husband Johnny.

In the latest round of legal wrangling over the unreleased film London Fields, producers say Amber failed to adequately promote the movie – and they say it was pressure from a “jealous” Johnny that was to blame.

“Heard’s misconduct … might have resulted, at least in part, from her tumultuous relationship with Mr. Depp, which was ongoing during the filming of London Fields,” the producers of the film allege in their lawsuit.

They go even further to say that Amber’s raunchy role in the movie – which called for several nude scenes – also contributed to her relationship woes.

“The provocative nature of Heard’s femme fatale role in the film was a factor leading to her divorce from Depp,” they claim.

Producers allege that Amber’s femme fatale role in the film drove a wedge between her and Johnny.

The New York Post’s Page Six column quotes the lawsuit as claiming that Amber had previously approved these controversial scenes, but then “reversed course, apparently under perceived or actual pressure from Depp (who, according to Heard, was extremely jealous).”

Previously , the London Fields producers alleged that Amber worked with director Matthew Cullen to change the final edit of the movie, getting rid of some of the scenes involving nudity and sex.

The producers said Amber failed to “render acting services in conformance with the shooting script” and made “unauthorised, material changes” to the script in collaboration with the director and have sued for a whopping $10 million.

In turn, Amber’s team have accused producers of using a body double to film “pornographic scenes”.

The couple settled their divorce case last year.

For her part, Amber’s legal team have accused producer Christopher Hanley and his wife Roberta of using a body double resembling the actress in order to film “pornographic scenes” which they say were “illegally added” into the movie.

“No respectable actor would promote this piece of garbage,” Amber’s lawyers contend.

London Fields was previously dragged into Johnny and Amber’s bitter divorce battle after it was rumoured that Johnny had flown into a jealous rage over his suspicions that Amber had entered into an affair with her co-star Billy Bob Thornton.

Billy Bob later told TMZ the allegation was “completely false”.
