Johnny Depp’s former talent agent Tracey Jacobs, also a former dear friend, and his former business manager testified in the ongoing defamation case between actress Amber Heard and her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.

Tracey Jacobs in her testimony said that there was a strain on her relationship with the actor as his alleged substance misuse escalated after being his agent for 3 decades.

The former agent who testified via a taped testimony described Johnny Depp as the “biggest star in the world” at one point but was fired by Depp about the same time he separated from other business acquaintances.

Jacobs confirmed in her testimony about being honest to let him know how his behaviour with drugs and alcohol abuse, is affecting career. Her testimony also revealed that Depp was often fed his lines via wearing an earpiece while on set.
“His star had dimmed due to it getting harder to get him jobs given the reputation that he’d acquired due to his lateness and other things,” Jacobs testified.  She added that “People were talking and the question was out there about his behaviour.”

Depp has filed a $50 million lawsuit against Heard, alleging that an op-ed she published for the Washington Post in 2018 defamed him. Depp argues that the essay, which did not name him, wrongly depicted him as an abuser. Heard has countersued Depp for $100 million, claiming that his counsel made defamatory statements about her abuse claims being a “hoax.”
