Amber Heard Interviewer Savannah Guthrie Reveals Her Husband Worked With Johnny Depp's Legal Team

Amber Heard sat down with NBC's Savannah Guthrie for her first interview since the end of Johnny Depp's defamation lawsuit against her.

The actress was grilled by Guthrie on statements she made in court and evidence heard in the trial that may contradict the actress's allegations that she never abused her ex-husband.

However, Guthrie's personal connection to the case is being called into question by Heard's supporters online.

Guthrie's husband has ties to the legal team that fought against Heard during the six-week trial in Virginia.

Savannah Guthrie's husband, Michael Feldman, acted as a PR consultant for Johnny Depp's legal team.

Before an interview with Depp's lawyers Vasquez and Chew, Guthrie gave a quick disclosure about how her husband did "consulting work for the Depp legal team" but had no connection with the interview she gave.

Notably, Guthrie did not make this same disclosure in her previous interview with Heard's lawyer.

Feldman, 53 is a public relations consultant and a former Democratic political advisor who was part of Bill Clinton's 1992 election campaign team.

He was formerly senior adviser and traveling chief of staff for former Vice President Al Gore who he also worked alongside during his 2000 presidential campaign.

Alongside all his work, Feldman is also a founding partner and managing director of the Glover Park Group, a communication, consulting, and advocacy firm.

Prior to joining the Clinton-Gore campaign in 1992, Feldman worked for Senate Democratic Leadership as a legislative analyst in the Democratic Policy Committee and as a member of the Democratic floor staff for the Senate Majority Leader.

Amber Heard's team has defended her decision to speak out.

While reactions towards the actress are still highly critical, her team have claimed that Depp's team dominated the media after the trial. 

"Johnny Depp's legal team blanketed the media for days after the verdict with numerous statements and interviews on television, and Depp himself did the same on social media," the representative told Newsweek in a statement on Monday.

"Ms. Heard simply intended to respond to what they aggressively did last week; she did so by expressing her thoughts and feelings, much of which she was not allowed to do on the witness stand."

Guthrie's exclusive interview will be broadcast Tuesday and Wednesday and then a special hour-long conversation on NBC dateline on Friday at 8 PM ET.
