Amber Heard's Friend Kicked Out Of Court Amid Johnny Depp Defamation Trial — See The Details
Order in the court!
Amber Heard's close friend, Eve Barlow, has been kicked out of the courtroom as Johnny Depp's defamation trial against the Aquaman actress rages on.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor filed a lawsuit against his ex-wife after she wrote an article for The Washington Post in 2019 calling herself a victim of domestic abuse — with the alleged implication that it was at Depp's hands. Heard is countersuing her former husband for $100 million on the grounds that she did not name Depp in the famed op-ed.

Now, Barlow, a British journalist who previously contributed to New York Magazine, found herself being tossed out the courtroom when she was caught texting and tweeting during the trial proceedings, according to sources per Page Six.
The former deputy editor has reportedly been joined at the hip with the All the Boys Love Mandy Lane star, and is rumored to have been constantly overstepping boundaries and conducting herself as if she was an actual member of Heard's team rather than simply a friend.
"Amber had her closest journalist friend sit front and center – with her legal team – at the trial, live-tweeting, texting and posting information," a source spilled to the outlet. "Eve Barlow seems to think she’s part of Amber’s legal team. Depp’s lawyers finally had enough..."

Barlow also allegedly attempted to intervene in the trial itself in the past by trying to get one of Depp's witnesses barred. She is said to have asked Heard's attorneys to tell Judge Penney S. Azcarate that Gina Deuters was "compromised." Deuters — who is married to one of the 21 Jump Street star's long term employees — was then dismissed as a witness.
Depp's legal team later requested Barlow be removed from the remainder of the trial for blatantly breaking court rules.
Judge Azcarte agreed to the request, noting texting and tweeting was "against the court order" and that "Ms. Barlow is not coming back into the courtroom during this trial."
