Yesterday, news broke that Amber Heard had filed for divorce from Johnny Depp. Also yesterday, according to multiple sources including People and PopSugar, Heard went shopping at Tiffany's, in her first post-divorce-filing public appearance.
What was she wearing? A L'Agence dress. What else? Lies — lies by the press, designed to drum up clicks and rumors. As it turns out, that trip to the jewelry store happened last month. Not cool.
For the past 24 hours, countless theories have swirled regarding the hows and whys of this particular marriage's dissolution. Consider this one: Depp, the other half of this now-split couple, has a movie, Alice in Wonderland 2, dropping today. "The timing!" people cried. "It's too good!" It could leave so much room for speculation: Were the customs dogs, Pistol and Boo, in on the promotional contract? Was AUSTRALIA?
Johnny Depp has yet to step out, but when he does, he'll probably also be wearing lies.
