On May 16, the process between actors Johnny Depp (58) and Amber Heard (36) went into the next round. Among other things, it is about violence in her marriage, sexual Assaults, damage to reputation and mutual accusations of defamation. But since the trial began, Depp has avoided eye contact with his ex, to whom he was married from 2015 to 2017, while Heard often makes eye contact. Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez (37) is now waiting with an amazing explanation.
Johnny Depp’s lawyer questions Amber Heard
As “people.com” reports, Vasquez asked Amber Heard during the trial: “Mr. Depp didn’t even look at her during the whole trial, did he?” “Not that I noticed,” Heard replied, only to be confronted by Vasquez with the next question: “You, on the other hand, kept looking over there?” Heard could only say yes and also confirmed that she knew exactly why Depp avoided eye contact.
These are the reasons Johnny Depp avoids eye contact
Following this questioning, Vasquez played an audio recording from a recent meeting between the two actors, which featured Heard asking her ex to give her a goodbye hug. What’s odd about the date itself is that Heard apparently insisted on the meeting, even though she herself had obtained a restraining order against Depp.
The actor had told his lawyers that he only agreed to the date, which took place in a San Francisco hotel in 2016, because he hoped “she would take back her lies.”
Why is Johnny Depp doing this?
After listening to the audio recording, Vasquez returned to her opening question. “He kept his promise?” she asked, referring to Depp’s alleged statement that Heard would never see his eyes again. And the actress replied, “As far as I know, he can’t look at me.” Only to be immediately greeted by Depp’s lawyer with the phrase, “He’s not going to look at her, is he Ms. Heard?” to be corrected. But Heard contradicted again: “He can’t.”
So here is statement against statement. Is Depp avoiding eye contact because he “doesn’t have the guts” to “even look at Ms. Heard,” as a rep for the actress previously suggested? Or is Johnny Depp just keeping his promise to put an end to his connection with Heard?
