She Testifies in Johnny Depp Defamation Case
During the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean 5, Ms. Jacobs was compelled to travel to Australia twice so that she can talk to Depp in response to crew complaints.
According to the Hollywood power broker, he was “consistently late” for “virtually every movie” he work on. She attributed this to his usage of alcohol and drugs and his “showing up late” on film sets.
“It hurt him when I told him to stop, and he did not listen, and he didn’t stop doing what he was doing, even after she told him to,” Ms. Jacobs said, adding that the crew always admired Depp for being so friendly with them. On the other hand, crews do not enjoy being to wait around for the star for a significant amount of time.
“Word spread like wildfire. People became hesitant to use him in the later stages as a result. According to Jacobs, she never saw Johnny Depp hitting a woman, despite allegedly having “fundamental issues with anger,” which worsened over time.
