Amber Heard continued her testimony in court today. Heard is being sued for defamation to the tune of $50 million by ex-husband Johnny Depp. Depp claims that a Washington Post op-ed Heard penned accusing him of abuse was false and cost him several high-profile acting roles. Amber has been on the stand discussing their wild relationship for the past two days.
Heard said today that at the 2014 Met Gala, Johnny Depp got physical with her. During the ball, Johnny accused Amber of flirting with a woman. After the couple got back to the hotel, she says, Depp beat her up.
The jury listened to Amber Heard as she testified that Johnny Depp shoved her and threw a bottle at her. Heard allegedly pushed back, and the fight spilled over into another room. Johnny then shoved her onto a couch and hit her in the face.
Amber Heard said the incident resulted in her having a broken nose. The shocking testimony followed Amber alleging that Johnny Depp also called her a ‘nagging bitch’ and a ‘c*nt.’ She also spoke of Depp’s apparent substance abuse issues.
The court battle between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has revealed a lot of crazy accusations. Depp is winning in the court of public opinion. Amber’s team came up with a new legal strategy and replaced her PR representatives after a negative public reaction to her side of the case.
It remains to be seen if the jury buys Amber Heard’s story. The entire relationship was a toxic mess, regardless of the outcome. Soon enough, the legal matter will be resolved, but America may be forever scarred for having witnessed the carnage.
