Amber Heard appeared clearly distressed as she recounted the first time she was allegedly hit by Johnny Depp during her and Johnny Depp’s defamation trial. The actress fought back tears as she testified on Wednesday that the star struck her three times after she laughed about one of his tattoos.”
It seemed so stupid and insignificant,” she said of the alleged incident in 2013. “It just looked like black marks,” she stated, but Depp claimed it said “Wino Forever,” after his ex-girlfriend Winona Ryder.”I assumed he was joking… it didn’t appear to say that at all.” “I then laughed, because it was that simple…and he slapped me in the face.”
I couldn’t think of anything else to do so I laughed.“This had to be a joke, right? I had no idea what was happening.”I just stared at him, half laughing, expecting him to join in….but he didn’t.” ‘You think it’s funny, b*tch?’ he said.
Do you think of yourself as a sassy b*tch?” He slapped me again after that. ” After accusing her of flirting with another woman when the two were on vacation in a trailer park in Joshua Tree in May 2013, Heard said in court that he did a ‘cavity search’ for drugs.”
He starts patting me down, he rips my dress,” she wailed as she narrated the search. He grabs my breasts, touches my thighs, takes my underwear off, and then does a cavity search on me. “I’m hunting for my cocaine, my coke,” he continued. [Depp] simply pushed his fingers into my flesh. I didn’t know what to do so I just stood there staring at the ridiculous light. He twisted his fingers in a circular motion. “I didn’t stay at a standstill or anything.”
Amber Heard vs Johnny Depp revealing too much about celebs’ life
Heard previously stated that her exlibel husband’s suit was “the most traumatic and terrible thing I’ve ever gone through.” I struggle to have the words… to find the words to convey how difficult this is,” she said to the Virginia court when asked how she felt about the trial. To sit here for weeks and relive everything… to hear people I knew – some well, some not – speak about our lives in the way they have.”The most terrible and difficult thing I’ve ever gone through,” she remarked.
She knew she should leave Johnny Depp the first time he hit her, but couldn’t bring herself to do so, according to Heard.”I knew I couldn’t just forgive him because it would mean it would happen again,” she says. Through tears, Heard told jurors, “I’ve seen the health class movies.” “I was devastated.”She couldn’t bring herself to break up with him in the end.
After being smacked, she walked away, but Depp returned a few days later with an apology, a few cases of her favourite wine, and a vow that he’d never do it again, according to Heard.” I chose to believe him because I wanted to,” she explained.
On Tuesday, the lawyers for Aquaman star Heard requested the judge to dismiss the lawsuit, alleging that Depp had failed to state his case as a matter of law and that no rational jury could find in his favour. However, the judge, Penney Azcarate, stated that the bar for dismissing the lawsuit was extremely high and that the case should proceed.
After alleging that Heard, 35, libelled Depp when she claimed she was a victim of domestic abuse, Depp’s attorneys decided to drop the case. The defence began by summoning to the stand a psychologist who said Heard suffered from posttraumatic stress disorder as a result of Depp’s physical and sexual assault.
Depp is suing Heard in Fairfax County Circuit Court for $50 million after the Aquaman star published an oped piece in The Washington Post in December 2018 in which she described herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”His ex-wife is suing for $100 million in retaliation for Depp’s assertions that she is lying. She also told jurors about how they met and fell in love while filming a movie.
Despite their 22year age gap, Amber Heard claims Depp struck up an instant connection with her when they met to discuss a role in his film “The Rum Diary.”I used to be a no-name actor.” I was 22 years old at the time. He was more than twice my age. Heard, now 36, said, “He’s this world-famous actor, and here we are talking about obscure novels and old blues” music.
While they were friends during filming, she believes they didn’t start dating until 2011, when they went on a press tour to promote the film’s release.
