Speaking to Law and Crime Network, Paul revealed, “I collected all of these historic document on him (Johnny Depp). The home he used to live in, the places his father worked, just really great stuff. Amber hired me in the summer of July 2019. I searched on every rock, every stone, all over the world to find out bad things about Johnny and we all came empty handed.”

He added, “She fired us. It was not until April of 2020, when I decided to share my time as a private detective with Amber. Johnny's father was four years younger than his mother when they got married. He was a passive man and did not like confrontation. Johnny is just like his father, from what we have heard in court. However, the father let his mom call the shots rather than arguing.”

Johnny and Amber got married in a secret ceremony at their Los Angeles home in 2015, after dating for nearly 3 years. In May 2016, Amber filed for divorce from Johnny and secured a temporary restraining order against him. She said Johnny had physically abused her during their relationship, and that it happened most often, while he was high on drugs or alcohol.

On June 1, Johnny won his defamation trial against Amber and she was ordered to pay him an amount of $10.35 million.
