The tense and controversial judicial process that confronts Johnny Depp and Amber Heard faces a one-week standby. The magistrate presiding over the trial has to attend to some personal matters, so the sessions are postponed until next Monday, May 16.
A break that, however, has not stopped the trickle of information (and some speculation) about what happens in the room between the two actors. Precisely one of the images taken these days during Amber Heard’s controversial statement has become viral, bringing to light the strict protocol that is followed regarding the entrances and exits of the ex-partner in court.
During Amber Heard’s statement, actor Johnny Depp kept his eyes down, fixed on a screen that he has in his place. It was said that this was a strategy to show no emotion at what her ex-wife said on the stand, harsh words in which he accused her ex-husband of sexual abuse and assault. However, in the last session, the inevitable happened: Amber left the stage without realizing that, on that same side, the actor was about to leave the room.

At that moment her eyes meet, and Amber backs up until she almost leans against the wall… an image full of tension between the two that immediately went viral. The face-to-face encounter lasted only an instant, but has been much talked about and even required the intervention of the marshal team., which cut off the actor. He turned around as his ex-wife walked past him, then continued on her way.
They make different routes
The organization is measured to the millimeter so that the artists do not coincide at the entrance or exit of the room. As detailed by TMZ, the security team of both collaborates with the court to avoid this uncomfortable moment. Even when there is a break in the trial at lunchtime they are taken to opposite ends of the building.
The terrible revelations that are coming to light in the process do not stop grabbing headlines and the attitude of the ex-husband is examined to the millimeter (much commented these days has been the behavior and gestures of Amber Heard during his testimony, in which he launched harsh accusations against the interpreter).
Amber’s tears on the stand and the terrible episodes she recounted about her life with the interpreter marked the last week of the process. The toxic relationship of the couple is being detailed through testimonies, images, and recordings that shock the public opinion that is following the process with great expectation.
The trial began after Johnny Depp filed a million-dollar lawsuit against his ex-wife for defamation, after the publication of an article signed by Amber Heard in The Washington Post newspaper where he confessed that he had been a victim of domestic violence (he did not refer directly to the actor). Although defamation is the object of the process, it is the relationship of a couple of actors which has become the protagonist of sessions that are increasingly intense.
