The trial for defamation that Johnny Depp initiated against his ex-wife Amber Heard continues to give something to talk about. On this occasion, the video of the reaction of the actress from “Aquaman” went viral when she saw that she was also approached by the actor.
Virginia, in the United States, accused the interpreter of Captain Jack Sparrow of sexually assaulting her with a bottle, constantly jealous of her, and repeatedly hitting her.
The actress has even pointed out that she got used to living with the different “personalities” of the actor since her state of mind depending on the psychoactive substance or the liquor she consumed.
“My life changed depending on what he was taking,” she said.
At the end of one of his interventions in the trial, during a break, Amber Heard is seen coming down from the stand, while Johnny Depp gets up from his post. Apparently, the actor tries to leave through the door that is close to his ex-wife, who panics when he sees him and takes a step back.
Amber’s fearful reaction to seeing Johnny was such that one of the security agents in the room prevented Depp from walking to the door and accompanied Heard to the place where his team of lawyers is located.
For his part, Deep, who was walking calmly, stopped when the security personnel asked him to, when he stopped he looked at Heard, turned to his left, and shrugged his shoulders as a sign that he did not understand what was happening.
There isn’t much of a middle ground in the testimony thus far from Johnny Depp and Amber Heard in Depp’s lawsuit against his ex-wife for defamation. One of them lies.
Heard has not finished giving his version of events. His testimony will continue on May 16 once the trial — now four weeks old — resumes after a week’s recess. She will then face what can be presumed to be cross-examination in a case in which both sides have used no quarter tactics for years when the lawsuit was filed.
Depp is suing Heard in Virginia for defamation over a December 2018 op-ed in the Washington Post that described him as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”
The article does not mention Depp by name, but his lawyers say it defames him because it is a clear reference to Heard’s public accusations of abuse when she filed for divorce in 2016 and obtained a restraining order against him.
Depp said he never physically abused Heard, while Heard says she was assaulted on more than one occasion.
Heard says the first time Depp hit her was in 2013 when she laughed at one of his old tattoos. On the bench, Depp denied that it had happened. “It never happened. Why would I be offended when someone makes fun of a tattoo on my body?
Both sides say the worst violence occurred in March 2015, when Depp was working on the fifth “Pirates of the Caribbean” film.
Heard says Depp sexually assaulted her with a liquor bottle during an alcohol-fueled tantrum. Heard, who returned to Australia after working on her own film, says Depp accused her of sleeping with one of her co-stars.
Depp, in turn, says that he was the victim in the incident. She stated that Heard was furious at the efforts of Depp’s lawyers to get her to sign a postnuptial agreement and that Depp was not honoring her sobriety promises to Heard’s satisfaction.
He said Heard threw a bottle of vodka at him and then another, which smashed against his hand and cut the tip of his finger.
