Amber Heard, 35, (Aquaman, The Rum Diary, Drive Angry Piper) took the stand Monday morning as her testimony continued. During yesterday’s testimony, Johnny Depp’s team began the cross-examination, to which Ms. Heard was caught lying under oath.
Amber Heard was caught in a lie regarding a concealer and color-correcting kit she claims she used hide and cover her bruises from her alleged physically abusive relationship with Mr. Depp.
Amber Heard‘s lawyer, Ben Rottenborn, presented his opening statements where he showed the jury a Milani Cosmetics‘ “All In One Correcting Kit” to the jury, and claimed Ms. Heard used the concealer and color correcting kit to hide and cover her bruises from her alleged physically abusive relationship with Mr. Depp.
However, the makeup brand exposed Ms. Heard, saying this cannot be true as their product wasn’t even available until after Heard and Depp got divorced.
Also more recently, TMZ obtained a photo of Amber Heard with a bloody lip, which she alleges was from a violent attack by her ex-husband, Johnny Depp. Heard’s attorneys tried to submit the photo into evidence, but there were two problems.
The first was the judge said the photo would have had to be submitted during the discovery phase. The second, the meta-data of this photo proves this photo was taken in 2012; however, Ms. Heard testified during the U.K. liable trial that the first incident of violence from Mr. Depp was 2013.
Ms. Heard is now testifying that she got her U.K. dates wrong and obtained a log showing appointments the Aquaman actress had with her therapist, which says she was talking about abuse in early 2012.
Now, Ms. Heard has been caught in another lie, this time while under oath.
In 2018, Ms. Heard appeared on a Dutch talk show called RTL Late Night where she said, “$7million in total was donated — I split it between the ACLU and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. I wanted nothing,” in reference to her divorce settlement with Mr. Depp.
On the stand yesterday, Monday, May 16, during Heard’s cross-examination, Ms. Heard finally admitted to failing to pay her pledged $3.5million donation to the ACLU after she previously claimed to have made the donation.
Ms. Heard then proceeded to blame Mr. Depp for not being able to donate that money because he sued her.
However, the issue is Ms. Heard has previously claimed multiple times that she had donated the entire divorce settlement to charity — including while under oath in Depp’s 2020 libel case in the United Kingdom.
The Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard defamation trial resumed yesterday after taking a week-long break as the judge had a previous engagement to attend to.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor is suing his ex-wife, Amber Heard, 35, (Aquaman (2018), The Rum Diary (2011), Drive Angry Piper (2011), and more) for defamation after she wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post, where she referred to herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.”
Ms. Heard is countersuing Mr. Depp, claiming that he “defamed her when his former lawyer released statements saying her allegations of abuse were a hoax.”
After losing to The Sun in a libel lawsuit case in November 2021, Depp has gone back to court for a defamation case, claiming that Heard isn’t telling the truth and has ruined his career.
Due to Heard’s allegations, Depp’s career has taken a few hits. Warner Bros.’ The Fantastic Beasts franchise dropped Depp and recast him with Mads Mikkelsen. Disney also fired Depp from his iconic role of Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Depp played Jack Sparrow in all five Pirates of the Caribbean films, including Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl (2003), Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006), Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World’s End (2007), Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011), and Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017).
The franchise also includes characters such as Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), Elizabeth Swan (Keira Knightley), Norrington (Jack Davenport), Governor Weatherby Swann (Jonathan Pryce), Pintel (Lee Arenberg), Ragetti (Mackenzie Crook) and others.
Pirates of the Caribbean franchise producer Jerry Bruckheimer also recently confirmed Depp’s official replacement in the franchise.
Johnny Depp’s legal team will continue the cross examination with Ms. Heard on the stand in the Fairfax courtroom today, Tuesday, May 17.
