Amber Heard has renewed her allegations of violence against her ex-husband Johnny Depp in a US court.
the essentials in brief
- Amber Heards (36) and Johnny Depp (58) continue to face each other in court.
- She is said to have been threatened by Depp with a broken bottle.
- Johnny Depp has sued Heard for $50 million for defamation.
Also on the second day of Amber Heard’s statements on the witness stand, Johnny Depp’s alleged drug dropouts and outbreaks of violence were the main topic. Heard once again chose drastic words to describe Depp’s condition after alleged drug use. When she thought Depp had hit his “absolute rock bottom,” he was “carried into the house like a baby” by a security guard.
As paradoxical as that may sound, it was precisely this moment that gave Amber Heard hope. Because she felt that this low point finally caused him to “really want to change”. However, it was a fatal misjudgment, as she found out a little later.
Was Amber Heard threatened with shattered bottle?
On the trip to Australia, she quickly found out that it hadn’t gotten better, but much worse. When he supposedly drank too much there one evening, a dispute between the two allegedly escalated.
So much so that he is said to have held a broken bottle to her neck. “He said he would slit my face open,” Heard testified. In a subsequent scuffle, her nightgown was torn, completely naked and in a panic she stood in front of Depp.
What frightened her the most was the fact that Depp stood there blank-eyed and out of the way. “He just wasn’t there,” Heard said through tears. A particularly terrible moment then happened. According to her statement, Depp took one of the bottles and forcibly introduced it “and over and over again into me”.
That’s what the process is about
Johnny Depp has sued Amber Heard for $50 million (€46 million) over a 2018 post she published in the Washington Post. In it, she claimed to be a victim of domestic violence.
Amber Heard did not mention her ex-husband by name. Depp claims the post nonetheless ruined his career, damaged his reputation and cost him a lot of money as a result. Heard is said to have filed a $100 million counterclaim against her ex, according to Variety.
