Amber Heard was seen in Israel last week, dining at a Tel Aviv cafe with one of her biggest supporters, journalist Eve Barlow, who was barred from the highly controversial Johnny Depp defamation trial.
According to online reports, Heard was sitting at a table with Barlow on August 1.
Barlow was kicked out of the Fairfax, Virginia, courtroom in April after Depp’s lawyers caught her using her phone during the trial
The Pirates of the Caribbean star’s lawyers filed a motion to get Barlow permanently barred from the proceeding because he violated a court order prohibiting phone use.
Lol, this article is not going well for Fartlow, they mention she was banned from the Courtroom 5 times and that she claims the negative comments against her were fueled by misogyny and anti-Semitism🤣 https://t.co/zkZv9EXgDX

Barlow tweeted messages of support for Heard outside the courtroom during the Fairfax County Circuit Court trial.
The former deputy editor of the music bible NME and a New York magazine contributor has blasted Depp fans. Depp supporters have attacked Barlow online.
Heard went to a bookstore in Tel Aviv, Israel on Aug. 2 with her baby daughter, Oonagh Paige Heard. They looked around for nearly an hour, according to the store owner, J.C. Halper.
The actress who starred in Aquaman bought a book written by Halper himself. He then posted a picture of her in the shop on Facebook.
“Now I will dip my big toe into the cesspool of Johnny vs. Amber squabble and lay out a couple of facts in Amber’s favor,” he wrote in a Facebook post. “She is a strong supporter of Israel, Jews and Israel’s cause…And expresses it by wearing a gold Jewish star around her neck.”
He praised Heard’s parenting and called her “modest, polite, friendly, inquisitive self-effacing customer with high literary tastes.”
Heard has been out of the news since her raving courtroom fight. On June 1, Depp was awarded a $10.35 million judgment against her following a six-week nationally broadcasted trial that exposed the most intimate aspects of their former lovers’ lives.
A jury made up of seven people found that Heard had defamed her ex-husband in a Washington Post op-ed she wrote in 2018.
The panel also found that Depp had defamed Heard by calling her allegations a “hoax.” They awarded her $2 million in damages.
Both sides have said that they are appealing the verdict.
