Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s lawsuit continues to make headlines. While Depp’s lawyer have rested their case, Heard was given a chance to take the stand and present her defense in the trial. The world has commented on each new shattering revelation of alleged sexual, physical, mental, and emotional abuse in their marriage.
Amid ongoing controversy regarding Amber Heard taking to the stand in the explosive lawsuit, her team has shared a new statement with HNHH. Heard’s team condemned Depp and insinuated that he was indeed harmful to Heard. This comes not long after Depp’s representatives claimed that Heard’s testimony was the “performance of her life.”
Heard’s representative stated to the outlet, “As evidenced by the statement just released, Mr. Depp’s defamation claim is falling apart so rapidly that his counsel are turning from prosecutor to persecutor.” The statement continued, “They boast that Mr. Depp’s story has not changed,”
“If so, since he lost the Domestic Violence Restraining Order and he resoundingly lost the libel case in the UK, perhaps he should consider a new strategy rather than the recycled approach of attacking the victim, and refusing to take responsibility for his own conduct.”
“If Mr. Depp was truly innocent, why has he repeatedly apologized to Ms. Heard and promised to put the ‘monster away for good.’ One of Ms. Heard’s disappointments is Mr. Depp’s inability to distinguish fact from fiction – a malady which appears to have spread to his legal team. That same team is so panicked they are fighting tooth and nail to prevent compelling evidence and photos from being introduced. 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 – and, instead he doodles and snickers.”
Heard’s spokesperson concluded the statement with, “Mr. Depp’s behavior in this trial has been as pitiful as it was in their marriage.” They added, “Apparently, they feel they must double-down on their demonstrably losing two-part strategy: distract the jury and demonize the victim,” However, Heard’s claims the whole world is behind Johnny.
Depp’s fans even launched a Change.org petition to have the actress removed from Aquaman 2, and it has already gained 3 million signatures. Following the widespread backlash against Heard, her screen-time on the Aquaman sequel was cut short to 10 mins. Stay tuned to Thirsty for future updates.
