Actress Amber Heard was cross-examined by Johnny Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez on Tuesday. In court, Heard admitted hitting Depp. However, this was only done in self-defense. However, she never attacked her ex-husband.
The process between the former Hollywood dream couple Johnny Depp (58) and Amber Heard (36) went into the next round on Tuesday. While Depp had already given his view of things, it was Heard’s fourth and final day on the witness stand.
After the actress detailed what happened between her ex-husband and her, Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez has now put her through her paces. It was all about their own violent abilities. Depp’s defense attorneys had previously accused her of inconsistencies in her statements about alleged violence in the relationship.
Heard was asked right at the beginning about the ex-couple’s stay in Australia in 2015. The “Aquaman” actress had claimed on a previous day of the trial that Depp threatened her with a bottle. The 58-year-old, on the other hand, had previously testified that she had thrown the bottle at him. Part of his middle finger was severed.
The lawyer showed photos of the apartment where the incident is said to have occurred and played audio recordings. “You weren’t scared that night, were you?” Vasquez asked. Heard replied: “Of course I was scared. I was scared to death.” The lawyer then showed a picture showing Heard and Depp together on a ship at sea. Both seem happy, snuggling up against each other. According to Vasquez, the picture was taken in Australia. Striking: In the picture you can see that Depp’s middle finger is connected.
“I’ve never attacked anyone I’ve been in a relationship with,” Heard said in a statement, according to Deadline. And emphasized again: “I did not attack Johnny in Australia. I never attacked Johnny.”
On Tuesday, Heard admitted under cross-examination, “I punched Johnny.” However, that was in self-defense as she was afraid Depp would push her sister down the stairs in an argument. “I did it to defend my sister,” Heard said in court. Vasquez asked Amber Heard if she threw a Red Bull can at Depp that day, to which Amber said no. Vasquez followed up: “You never threw anything at Mister Depp?” Heard then admitted: “Yes, I did throw things at him, but not that day.”
The lawyer showed another picture. Seen this time: The couple in fine evening wear, on a train in Southeast Asia, during their honeymoon trip. “In the photo you can see that Depp’s face has injuries, right?” the lawyer asked. Depp’s nose and cheek area are clearly swollen and red in the photo. Amber countered, “I’ve seen the photo before. His face shows no injuries. That’s Photoshop.” Vasquez’s wry response: “Thanks, I have my answer.”

“Was the picture taken right after the argument between you?” the lawyer asked. “Yes,” confirmed Heard. Vasquez showed diary entries and love letters written by the 36-year-old months after the incident. In it, she emphasized how much she loves Depp. Vasquez shared another post, now from April 2016. She read, “I’m sorry, I’m really freaking out. I’m sorry I hurt you. Like you, I can get angry when I get hurt. (…). I felt left out about the Lily Rose thing.” Lily-Rose, 22, is Depp’s daughter. In the process, the actor had already testified that his former wife did not get along well with her.
Heard, who appeared that day in a high-necked blouse and pinstripe blazer, contradicted what she had previously said. As on the previous day of the trial, Vasquez brought up an incident in which Depp allegedly slapped his ex-wife in the face so many times that she couldn’t even remember how many times. Vasquez told Heard that Depp was known to wear rings on each of his fingers, which would leave marks on a beaten-up face. Heard didn’t take a picture of her injuries from the alleged attack, but said, “I don’t know Johnny without his rings.” When asked about it again Tuesday, Heard suddenly said, “He wore rings sometimes… often.”
The evidence continued: Depp’s lawyer showed a picture of Heard. A close-up of the actress brushing her hair away from her face. Striking about it: Heard’s arms are decorated with red scratches. “You’ve hurt yourself in the past, right?” Vasquez asked. Heard replied, “I tried when I was a teenager. When I started taking the pill back then, I went crazy. I had suicidal thoughts. ”The injuries shown by Vasquez in the photo are injuries she suffered from Depp throwing a bottle.
