She had to be in Johnny’s destiny

I was re-reading days ago an old interview published on Vanity Fair when it was released The Rum Diary. It was 2011. The journalist an aficionado of Johnny Depp: Nick Toches.
I thought at that manuscript.

Johnny found out the manuscript somewhere in the house of Thompson.

A book Thompson didn’t like at all.

I realized that it was all written.

I presume, it’s in the destiny of each of us, in a way, create unconsciously the occasion for meeting someone crucial in our life in a remote, distant moment of our existence.

That person will mark later our life positively or negativity with intensity.

Johnny has created the conditions for meeting in his Destiny the so-called new wife when he spent weeks at the house of Thompson for preparing Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Terry Gilliam based on the same book written by Thompson.

Johnny has always described the moments spent with the Kentuckian writer and gonzo journalist as wonderfully great.

Searching searching, Johnny, discovered somewhere in the house of Hunter Thompson, 19-20 years ago the manuscript of The Rum Diary.

Thompson didn’t like at all that book. He tried to publish it without success and he had completely forgotten it, hided somewhere and without intention to publish it anymore.

Johnny, once discovered the manuscript, fell in love for the story and decided to help his friend to publish it.

The book released the year it was launched Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, directed by Terry Gilliam.

It was 1998.

The Rum Diary started to be written by Thompson when he was just 22 years old in 1959.

Johnny decided to create a  movie based on The Rum Diart, Once he did it. It was a flop.

We know all the rest.

Depp married after a suffering and controversial story the so-called “new wife” with the arrival of the new year.

Great joy and happiness, the ceremony celebrated in Los Angeles at the presence of
Johnny’s mom Betty Sue Palmer and later at the Bahamas, with 50 guests.

The wedding a wonderful and idyllic moment for the couple.

Johnny started to film Pirates soon.

At first the girl didn’t join Depp in Australia.

Johnny Depp in the while after few days from his arrival,some concerts he had attended at, injured himself off-set, while, it’s supposed, he was driving a kart in the private structure and circuit created at Coomora mansion during a pause from the shootings of Pirates.

He was constricted to return to Los Angeles for being operated and a pin inserted in his middle finger of the right hand. A problem still persisting.

It was shocking for the production. The main actor sick the worsest news. A nightmare. The crew lived moments of great sadness. More than 200 people unemployed for various weeks.

The Australian government tried to insist with the people of the production of Pirates for seeing Johnny Depp back as soon as possible. It happened after six weeks, and the news was saluted with great joy and happiness.

At the return, the arrival also of the new wife of Depp, Heard and other people of Johnny’s entourage.

We were all ready to repeat the old scheme of Boston where Johnny filmed Black Mass, the story of the mobster Whitey Bulger: Johnny visiting some famous book-stores, Johnny eating here and there. A sort of Australian: Asks Johnny, he knows the answer. Mmmm, I think I wrote it also in another piece, true? But it was what we were expecting for our blogs. No more, no less.

Well, at the beginning Johnny met Jade Baker, the 11 years old boy sick because of the horrible illness of Moyamoya. Touching and wonderful moment. The best moment to me of all these long and suffering months for a disgraceful production plenty of little and big incidents.

Johnny later found the time for adopting a poor little bat visiting the center where the bat is being cured. We were all thrilled.

In the while…

The new wife of Johnny, Heard felt the necessity of bringing with her the two yorkshire
terriers, Pistol and Boo.
One day they thought that it had to be a good thing a visit at the groomers.

The groomers asked if it was possible to posting the pictures taken with the dogs on their Facebook page.
Johnny’s entourage agreed at the idea.

A news like this one, for gossip, the two dogs of Johnny’s new wife at the groomer, reported immediately in the entire world and in Australia. It was cute, nice, attractive.

But someone jumped on the chair maybe when read this news: Barnaby Joyce, the minister of Agriculture.

These two little terriers passed the customs or not when the happy couple arrived at the airport of Brisbane?
No, it seemed.
So, what happened?

It became a national case.

It seems that the two dogs have been illegally imported in Australia, and Australia is extremely severe regarding the bio-security laws and the quarantine of all the possible animals not just dogs, but cats, little and big animals as well.

The embarrassment for what happened has been great and once discovered the story
someone contacted immediately Johnny’s wife. The girl reassured everyone that the dogs, reported various magazines online, were vaccinated.

After just few hours: the dogs had to return to the Usa as soon as possible. In 72-50 hours. In opposite case they would have been euthanized. It’s the procedure followed for every common mortals and it was applied at Johnny Depp and his wife as well. An exception couldn’t be possible because a breach like this one too dangerous for future episodes and privileged people must be treated like everyone else.

At the same time an investigation tried to understand the amount of people knew that the two little dogs were in the airplane and the various responsibilities.

The scenario this one: 10 years for the owner of the dogs or something to pay, 100.000 dollars in pecuniary terms, the risk of 2 years of jail for the pilot of the jet if recognized guilty of any responsibility.

Time passed by, the dogs were sent back home via private jet and Johnny Depp spent 400.000 dollars just for that.

A petition was created by some Johnny’s fans asking to save “Johnny’s dogs”. The dogs are the facto the dogs of Johnny’s wife Heard. Johnny became the co-owner of the dogs once he married her.

At the end Heard received the summons. Heard faces three charges under the Australian Quarantine Act, including two counts of illegal importation of animal, one for each dog, and one count because she produced false document. The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions thinks the model and actress falsified her passenger arrival card for keeping the two dogs like phantoms at the customs.

Not additional comments from the spokesman of the Minister of Agriculture Joyce: “As the matter is now before the courts, Mr Joyce will not be making any further comment”

The Department of Agriculture confirmed in a statement: “Ms Amber Heard was served with a summons issued by the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions on July 14. The CDPP’s action follows an incident where a bio-security officer attended a Gold Coast property in April and found two dogs alleged to be illegally imported.”

In a statement the Minister of Agriculture: “All animals entering Australia must have an import permit, and have undergone relevant testing and health checks signed off by a government veterinarian from the exporting country to ensure pests and diseases from overseas are not brought here”.

Heard can appear in person or through a lawyer.
