Former producer and current industry expert and consultant Kathryn Arnold took the stand on Monday as a witness for Heard during her trial involving the ex of her marriage to Johnny Depp.

She claimed that the red-wigged Heard role was meant to represent Her “star has been born” moment, but that the actress was eliminated off from “Aquaman 2” due to problems concerning Johnny Depp, 58.

Arnold added that the sole reason Heard retained her job was because Momoa 42 and Director James Wan, 45, “committed to her” and were “adamant” that she was included in the film in The Daily Mail.

Heard that she was 36 and was trained for five hours every day for a period of several months, before receiving a letter by a costume designer her position was “dismissed.”

Arnold who was with Heard prior to the test in the testimony, stated that his character, Mera, was going to be the “strong romantic arc throughout the film, and some fantastic action scenes” prior to the time that her action scenes had to be “cut off” and her part was “radically diminished.”

On Thursday the actor’s Agent, Jessica Kovacevic, stated that she was informed that the role was close to being changed due to her “lack of the chemistry” with Momoa but she believed that it was due to her reputation for being a bad one.

Arnold added that “Game of Thrones” actor Momoa was able negotiate his pay for the sequel film from about three million up to fifteen million.

Heard received the exact $2 million amount was stated in her first interview, Arnold said, adding that the actress in question could have had the opportunity to negotiate a deal for as much as $6 million.

They like her work, but they aren’t able to collaborate with her since every when she’s mentioned, the negativity heats out again.” Arnold said of Heard’s “very negative” image.

Arnold stated that, over the course of five years, Heard could have made up to $4 million per film, although it may have exceeded the amount and reached $20 million.

Tina Turner survived an abusive relationship with Ike and death of two sons




Tina Turner escaped an abusive relationship to find true love with her second husband, Erwin Bach.

The singer, who passed away aged 83 on Wednesday following an unspecified illness, was in a relationship with the record executive for 38 years. The pair married in 2013.

Tina had publicly praised Erwin for helping her find happiness after fleeing from her first marriage to husband, Ike Turner, which was plagued with physical and emotional abuse.

Ike first met Tina when she was a vulnerable teenager named Annie Mae Bullock. He renamed her Tina, and went on to form the musical duo, Ike & Tina Turner. According to Tina, he micromanaged her career, withheld her finances and beat her while she was pregnant.

After filing for divorce in 1978, Tina was left in debt and had her children to support. She went on to establish a successful solo career.

The songstress met Erwin in 1985 when he was working as an executive with EMI. The pair had an instant connection the moment they met, when he arrived to collect her from Düsseldorf airport.

She said Erwin had taught her how “to love without giving up who I am”, and that he had never been intimidated by her fame or success. He even donated a kidney to her in April 2017, which saved her life.

Writing in her book, Happiness Becomes You: A Guide to Changing Your Life for Good, Tina said: “Falling in love with my husband, Erwin, was another exercise in leaving my comfort zone, of being open to the unexpected gifts that life has to offer.

“The day I first met Erwin, at an airport in Germany, I should have been too tired from my flight, too preoccupied with thoughts of my concert tour. But I did notice him, and I instantly felt an emotional connection.

“Even then, I could have ignored what I felt — I could have listened to the ghost voices in my head telling me that I didn’t look good that day, or that I shouldn’t be thinking about romance because it never ends well. Instead, I listened to my heart.”

Tina’s spokesman confirmed she died “peacefully” at home and added: “With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model. With her music and her inexhaustible vitality, Tina Turner thrilled millions of fans and inspired many artists of subsequent generations.”

Tina Turner: legendary rock’n’roll singer dies aged 83




Tina Turner, the pioneering rock’n’roll star who became a pop behemoth in the 1980s, has died aged age of 83 after a long illness, her publicist has told the PA news agency.
Turner affirmed and amplified Black women’s formative stake in rock’n’roll, defining that era of music to the extent that Mick Jagger admitted to taking inspiration from her high-kicking, energetic live performances for his stage persona. After two decades of working with her abusive husband, Ike Turner, she struck out alone and – after a few false starts – became one of the defining pop icons of the 1980s with the album Private Dancer. Her life was chronicled in three memoirs, a biopic, a jukebox musical, and in 2021, the acclaimed documentary film, Tina.

“Turner’s musical character has always been a charged combination of mystery as well as light, melancholy mixed with a ferocious vitality that often flirted with danger,” scholar Daphne A Brooks wrote for the Guardian in 2018.
Turner was born Anna Mae Bullock on 26 November 1939 and raised in Nutbush, Tennessee, where she recalled picking cotton with her family as a child. She sang in the tiny town’s church choir, and as a teenager talked – or rather, sang – her way into Ike’s band in St Louis: he had declined her request to join until he heard her seize the microphone during a Kings of Rhythm performance for a rendition of BB King’s You Know I Love You.
She had suffered ill health in recent years, being diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2016 and having a kidney transplant in 2017.
