Depp v Heard: Amber’s bond with former AFL player Mitch Hallahan revealed

A former AFL player was revealed as a confidant of Amber Heard during her stay in Australia in 2017.

A former AFL player was revealed as a secret Australian confidant of actor Amber Heard during his stay in 2017.

Mitch Hallahan, who played for the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn, is said to have struck up a close friendship with the Aquaman star after a chance meeting at the Garden Bar of the Star Casino in Gold Coast five years ago, according to the sun herald.

Heard – who is currently embroiled in a US court battle against ex-husband Johnny Depp – lived on the Gold Coast for much of 2017 while filming the superhero flick alongside Jason Momoa.

Hallahan was with his teammates at a private function at the Star in April or May of that year, with the Aquaman cast and crew at a separate function in the same area.

the sun herald reports that the two groups ended up mixing and Hallahan was one of many players introduced to Heard.

They struck up a close friendship and are rumored to have dated briefly after the actor’s relationship with Elon Musk ended around August.

“It was purely organic and by chance over a glass of red wine,” a source said of the couple’s bond, adding that Heard was “smart, charismatic and caring.”

While rumors swirled at the time that Heard had a solid friendship with a Gold Coast-based footballer, Hallahan was never named.

The 36-year-old even attended a Suns game, happily sporting a team scarf alongside her teammates, including Dolph Lundgren, in July 2017.

“She was fascinated by the game but never really understood it,” a source told The Daily Mail. sun heraldthis match being the only one she attended.

Heard left Australia at the end of 2017, with Hallahan’s career with the Suns ending the same year after being severely hampered by injury.

The 29-year-old only played six senior games for Hawthorn between 2011 and 2014, before playing 20 games for the Queensland side between 2015 and 2017.

Now based in Melbourne, he plays with Sorrenton on the Mornington Peninsula.

Hallhan and Heard’s media representative, Shane Communications, declined to comment.

The report comes at the end of a planned week-long hiatus in his explosive clash with Depp, who is trying to prove Heard defamed him in a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post in which he was not named but where she identified as a survivor of domestic violence.

She then counterattacked Depp in response.

Heard was the last to speak at the trial, providing heartbreaking testimony about the brutal abuse she allegedly suffered at the hands of Depp during their relationship, including an incident where she accused him of the sexually assaulted with a bottle.

Depp has denied abusing his ex-wife and has himself claimed he was the victim of physical and emotional abuse.

The trial resumes on May 16.
