Amber Heard chokes back tears during trial against Johnny Depp

Published

on

Amber Heard has taken to the stand in her trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp, choking back tears as she addressed the court

The Aquaman actor alleges Depp physically abused her starting with slaps and ending with a full cavity search.

It’s Heard’s first time taking to the stand in a case that is continuing to create news headlines right around the world.

Heard says the whole court process has been the most painful experience of her life to date.

Heard says she continued to stay with Depp because she wanted to believe his apologies and promises to never hit her again.

Heard says Depp’s alleged physical outburst against her was in response to comments she made about one of his tattoos. 

She testified that her ex-husband slapped her twice before saying “you think it’s funny bitch”.

58-year-old Johnny Depp is suing Amber Heard for $50 million saying Heard has defamed him by claiming she is a victim of domestic abuse.

Meanwhile, 36-year-old Heard is counter-suing for $100 million saying Depp smeared her by calling her a liar.

Depp maintains he never struck his then-wife and says Heard’s allegations have cost him “everything” including a new “Pirates” movie that was put on hold and a role in the “Fantastic Beasts” film franchise.

Adidas faces potential $320M Yeezy shoe write-off post-Kanye split

Published

on

Adidas is contemplating a significant financial blow as it considers writing off $320 million worth of Yeezy shoes following its separation from music and fashion icon Kanye West.

The sportswear giant’s decision to sever ties with West’s Yeezy brand has left a mountain of unsold merchandise, threatening to dent the company’s balance sheet.

The partnership between Adidas and Kanye West, which began in 2013, had been immensely successful, with Yeezy shoes becoming a highly sought-after fashion statement.

However, recent controversies and disagreements between West and Adidas prompted the sportswear company to distance itself from the celebrity designer.

The massive inventory of Yeezy shoes now presents a dilemma for Adidas, as it grapples with finding a solution to deal with the surplus stock. A $320 million write-off could significantly impact the company’s financial performance in the short term.

Adidas is currently exploring various options, including discounting, donating, or repurposing the unsold inventory to mitigate the financial hit.

Philanthropic YouTuber MrBeast, known for his outlandish and extravagant charity stunts, recently financed the construction of 100 wells in Africa, providing clean drinking water to thousands of people.

 

While the philanthropic gesture is commendable on the surface, it has ignited a wave of controversy and criticism from various quarters.

Critics argue that MrBeast’s approach, although well-intentioned, might not be the most sustainable solution to Africa’s water crisis.

In the end, whether MrBeast’s 100 wells in Africa are a game-changing philanthropic success or a mere spectacle remains a subject of intense social debate.
