They also claimed the rumours about Heard being nibbed from the film were vitriol born from the post-trial case.

There were online claims circulating that alleged that Heard's role had been reduced to ten minutes in the whole film, while there were others who claimed that after the verdict and losing against her hubby, they axed her completely from the show.

"The rumor mill continues as it has from day one -- inaccurate, insensitive, and slightly insane," said her team members.

However, the studio producing the anticipated film, Warner Bros has not commented on the axing issue.

Although Heard has no say in how much she will be featured in the movie, or if she will be recast, she already shot all her scenes a year ago and was also paid about KSh 234.5 million as shared in court during her trial.
