Oops they did it again! Troubled tides have put Johnny Depp and Amber Heard back in the Australian dog house. Remember back in April when Johnny and Amber landed themselves in trouble by smuggling their dear dogs Pistol and Boo into the country?
The dogs were almost forced to walk the plank when the Agriculture Minister of Australia threatened to put them down if they were not removed within a matter of days. Without having been quarantined the dogs were a risk to Australian biosecurity. Despite whisking their dogs away to kinder shores, the drama is still far from over and Amber is the one in trouble this time.
After Johnny escaped a prison sentence back in May, it has been revealed that Amber Heard now faces charges. First they went after Johnny and now they have turned to Amber, when will this nonsense end?! Unluckily for her, the pooches are registered to her name. The actress now faces two counts of illegal smuggling. After bringing these angelic faced terriers into the country on their private jet. I have to admit I am sure the actors knew they were doing something wrong as they produced false documentation when asked.
"I have a feeling we’re going to avoid the land Down Under from now on, just as much as we can, thanks to certain politicians there. I don’t know, I guess everyone tries to go for their 15 minutes, including some government officials."
Despite causing much controversy, Johnny and Amber have managed to keep Australia in the headlines, which will probably be fantastic for tourism! Johnny and Amber may be working on films down under, but the country has made them feel very unwelcome.
Doomsday for Amber may be on September 7th, when she has been summoned to court in Australia to face the charges. If she is convicted she may face up to 10 years in prison or have to pay over $100k in fines! I really doubt they will imprison either of the Depps and just give them hefty fines, which usually happens with celebrities. Australia has sent ripples of warnings loud and clear to any future people who may want to mess with their system.
It seems that in Australia it does not matter who you are, the law remains the same. Australia is totally milking this situation though, c'mon the couple sent the dogs out within the 72 hours specified and no harm came to the country. Maybe Johnny should offer them some of his copious amounts of rum from the Pirates set so they calm down a little.
Boo and Pistol are probably totally oblivious to the canine conundrum they have caused, but they have left their owners paying hard! Hopefully, it will be smooth sailing for the couple again soon and Johnny will somehow manage to save the day.
