Recently, when Amber Heard cried in the courtroom while talking about her ex-husband Johnny Depp sexually harassing her and threatening her life, Johnny’s representative called the testimony her ‘performance’. On the other hand, Amber’s spokesperson rebutted by alleging that Johnny’s case is escalating from his hand and thus, he and his team are attempting to ‘victim-blaming’.
Johnny has filed a case against his ex-wife Amber for defaming, arguing an article she wrote about ‘surviving domestic abuse’ affected his career and life. The trial is going on at a state court in Virginia’s Fairfax County where pirates of the Caribbean actor has sued Aquaman Actress for $50 million. Amber has a counter-suit of $100 million.
Amber testified in court stating Johnny has attacked her with a bottle. Speaking while weeping, the actor stated, “I was scared. I had just married him.” As per her statement, the incident happened in July 2015 when she visited Johnny in Australia when he was shooting for the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean series.
shortly after the testimony, Johnny’s representative released a statement on his behalf which reads, “As Mr. Depp’s counsel correctly predicted in their opening statements last month, Ms. Heard did indeed deliver ‘the performance of her life in her direct examination. While Ms. Heard’s stories have continued to grow new and convenient details, Mr. Depp’s recollections have remained exactly the same throughout the six painful years since her first allegations were made.”
In the comment released on Amber’s behalf, her team also criticized Johnny. It further reads, “If Mr. Depp was truly innocent, why has he repeatedly apologized to Ms. Heard and promised to put the ‘monster away for good. Small wonder Mr. Depp does not have the fortitude or courage to even look at Ms. Heard at all throughout the proceedings — as he could not in the UK trial. Mr. Depp’s behavior in this trial has been as pitiful as it was in their marriage. Apparently, they feel they must double-down on their demonstrably losing two-part strategy: distract the jury and demonize the victim.”
