Savannah Guthrie’s husband, who is he? The ‘PR consultant’ for Johnny Depp’s team was Michael Feldman!
Amber Heard had her first interview to NBC’s Savannah Guthrie after losing a slander case to Johnny Depp. Guthrie’s husband, Michael Feldman, was later revealed to have worked as a consultant for Depp’s legal team.
On June 1, a Virginia jury unanimously decided that Heard, 36, defamed Depp, 58, in a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post when she described herself as a victim of domestic abuse. Judge Penney Azcarate decreased the punitive damages to $350,000 according to Virginia state law. Heard was sentenced to pay $15 million in damages, including $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. The jury also agreed to Heard’s claim of defamation when Depp’s lawyer Waldman branded her abuse accusations a “hoax,” awarding her $2 million in compensatory damages.
On Monday, June 13, NBC announced that on Friday, June 17, it will telecast a primetime special interview with Amber Heard, which would include Today co-host Guthrie. Last Monday, the renowned anchor, who moderated one of Joe Biden’s and Donald Trump’s presidential debates in October 2020, spoke with Depp’s attorneys Camille Vasquez and Benjamin Chew. She then disclosed that her husband, public relations consultant Michael Feldman, had also served as an adviser to Depp throughout the much-discussed trial.

Guthrie began the interview by admitting her husband’s ties to Depp’s attorneys before immediately moving on to her questions regarding the trial. “A short disclaimer,” she stated, “my husband has done consultancy work for the Depp legal team, but not in connection with this interview.”
Savannah Guthrie’s husband, who is he?
Feldman, a 53-year-old public relations consultant and former Democratic political strategist, was a key figure in Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign and has worked on a number of high-profile initiatives. He also worked as a senior adviser and traveling chief of staff for former Vice President Al Gore, and he accompanied Gore during his presidential campaign in 2000. He is the managing director of The Glover Park Group, a communications, consulting, and advocacy organization that he founded. Guthrie, Depp’s wife, was a significant figure in the Depp-Heard trial coverage.

After the trial, Guthrie spoke with Elaine Bredehoft, one of Heard’s attorneys. A spokeswoman for Heard defended her choice to come out shortly after word of her upcoming primetime appearance with Guthrie broke. “For days after the verdict, Johnny Depp’s legal team saturated the media with countless comments and interviews on television, and Depp himself did the same on social media,” Heard’s rep said in a statement to Newsweek on Monday. “Ms. Heard simply wanted to respond to their hostile behavior last week, and she did so by expressing her thoughts and feelings, something she was not permitted to do much of on the witness stand.”
In a two-minute preview for the interview, Heard says she doesn’t blame the jury for the conviction reached after a seven-week judicial battle over Depp’s defamation claim. Nearly two years after losing a libel action against NGN, the proprietors of British tabloid The Sun, the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor was successful. Following Heard’s claims of domestic abuse, the newspaper dubbed him a “wife-beater,” and according to the judgement in the UK libel case, The Sun established that what they published was “essentially accurate.”
