Over the past two days, Amber Heard has given her version of the facts before the jury of the court in Fairfax, Virginia, which must decide whether or not she defamed Johnny Depp by presenting herself as a victim of domestic violence.
The actress described several episodes, claiming that her ex-husband was jealous of his filming partners, which led, along with alcohol and drugs, to scenes of extreme violence, including a rape with a bottle in glass.
Faced with this testimony with sordid details, the interpreter of Jack Sparrow reacted through his spokesperson.
“As Mr. Depp's lawyer correctly predicted in his opening argument last month, Miss Heard evidently delivered 'the performance of a lifetime' during her direct examination.
While Miss Heard's stories have continued to change and adapt, Mr. Depp's memories have remained exactly the same throughout these painful six years since the first charges were laid.
His (Depp's) truth — the truth — is the same no matter where it was presented,” the actor's rep told
Word against word
The Amber Heard camp responded to this press release by assuring that Amber Heard's testimony made the accusation of Johnny Depp "collapse".
“They put forward that Mr. Depp's story has not changed.
Since he lost the domestic violence restraining order and the lawsuit he filed in the UK, maybe he should consider a new strategy instead of recycling this approach of attacking the victim and to refuse to take responsibility, "adds the representative of the actress, who also criticizes the actor for" not even having the courage to look at Miss Heard throughout the procedure ".
The trial will resume after a week-long hiatus with cross-examination of Amber Heard by Johnny Depp's legal team.
The actor's spokesperson promises that this next step "will bring to light the lies Ms Heard tried to pass off as fact throughout her convoluted testimony".
