Johnny Depp is suing Heard for defamation after she made an op-ed piece for The Washington Post that alluded to their alleged abusive relationship. During the former couple’s defamation trial, Howard Stern chastised Johnny Depp for “overacting” while Depp testified against Amber Heard.
Judge Penney Azcarate approved Heard’s defence team’s attempt to prevent cameras from livestreaming the trial. The decision was not publicly contested by Depp’s team. Stern talked about Depp while discussing the trial on his SiriusXM radio show.
The reason he wanted that on — he wanted it televised [because] that’s what narcissists do. 0They think they can talk their way out of anything. I think Johnny Depp is a huge narcissist and what I mean by that is — he figured, ‘I’ll put this on TV and because I’m so persuasive and because I’m so smart, I’m such a wonderful guy.’ I’ll play you some clips from the Johnny Depp trial. If he isn’t acting — I mean, he’s so overacting because he’s writing his own material as he goes along. You know, I gotta tell you, he’s wrong. He shouldn’t be putting this on TV in any shape.
The cross-examination of Depp ended on April 25. Heard hasn’t testified yet, but he will in the coming days. Stern and his co-host Robin Quivers agreed that Depp’s career will not be saved by the trial.
That’s what narcissists do, [they say], ‘I will charm the pants off of America at the trial.’ No you won’t! This will not go well. It’s not going well for you, it’s not going well for her. It’s not going well for anybody. You sound like two battling children. It’s just coming off really badly. Johnny Depp testified in court for two days last week. Two days. Think about that, lots of room to embarrass yourself. Two full, fucking days! First of all, his difficulty in speaking the English language is fantastic…And the accent. First of all, isn’t he from like the South of the Midwest? Johnny Depp was born in Kentucky. Does that sound like a guy from Kentucky?
Much of Rottenborn’s cross-examination has focused on presenting the jury with a deluge of texts, audio, and video in order to demonstrate Depp’s record of drug and alcohol misuse, as well as references to violence in relation to Heard. The ongoing legal battle between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is far from over. We will have to wait and see what other revelations will be revealed during the trial.
