Johnny Depp sued Amber Heard for libel over a 2018 Washington Post article she wrote. In response to Depp’s complaint, Heard filed a counterclaim for $100 million in compensatory damages. Amber may have just turned the case against her even more by submitting a photo that briefly shows a makeup kit used to produce fake bruises.
According to Radar Online, If new picture evidence demonstrates that Johnny Depp’s ex-wife created a so-called “bruise kit” to back her allegation that she was beaten by the Hollywood star, Amber Heard might face perjury charges. A candid snapshot presented to the Fairfax County, Virginia, the court that is evaluating the fate of Depp and Heard’s dueling defamation claims has been studied to reveal what seems to be a make-up palette usually available for purchase online.
The “bruise kit” is made up of several hues of foundation and make-up that are used to replicate the appearance of a beaten face. The dramatic discovery has the potential to upend the $100 million trial, which is being watched by people all around the world.
The kit was discovered in a photograph of Depp “passing out” with ice cream dripping down his legs. Depp denied “passing out,” claiming that he was sleeping when his ex-wife “planted” the ice cream. The graphic purports to show a four-color palette for “creating the most realistic bruises.” On Amazon, Radar discovered a comparable five-color “Color Bruise Wheel for Special Effects, Movies (and) Halloween” for $15.
The product, which matches the palette described in the court filing, advertises that it can “create an array of different colored bruises from impact to healing.” Ironically, Heard was the one who filed the exhibit that may derail the case. “If Depp’s legal team can establish that Heard used, purchased, or owned this make-up kit, or something similar, she could be found to have committed perjury,” one legal source said.
“Make no mistake, there will be efforts going on behind-the-scenes from Team Depp to establish Heard had this make-up kit. If Depp’s lawyers can prove this, there is a case for it to be introduced in evidence to impeach Heard’s testimony about incidents she said left her battered and bruised.”
Adding to the notion that Heard may have applied make-up to appear as the victim of a beating, she referred to a makeup palette as a “bruise kit” during testimony. Heard, on the other hand, insisted to the jurors that she used it to cover up bruises allegedly inflicted on her by Depp.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star has accused Heard of faking the humiliating photo, which was taken after he returned from a day of filming Black Mass in Boston in 2014. In the witness box, a dry-witted Depp answered Heard’s lawyer, Ben Rottenborn, who claimed the photo indicated he was passed out.
“Passed out is an interesting way of putting it, maybe asleep.”
“Miss Heard asked me to hold the ice cream when she noticed I was on the nod, that means falling asleep from the 17-hour day I worked and also the opioids I had ingested.”
“You will notice my right hand is in my pocket so I wasn’t participating in the festival of ice cream.”
“I was holding her ice cream and because she knew what would happen, I would fall asleep. That was a wonderful picture to take for her. I don’t know why she took it.”
With all of the attention focused on the two, one of them was certain to make a mistake, and Amber did. Let’s see what happens. To Get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
