Defamation Case: Amber Heard's Statements Are Also Complete
Actress Amber Heard has also completed her statements and cross-examination in the defamation case filed by her ex-husband Johnny Depp and now the statements of more witnesses will be recorded. Amber Heard began recording her statements in early May, after which she was interrogated by Johnny Depp's lawyers, and the series of statements and interrogations continued for about two weeks.
According to the Associated Press (AP), Amber Heard completed her statement on May 17, and on the last day, Johnny Depp's lawyers asked her tough questions and asked her if her husband had abused her. Why didn't he heal his wounds? During the statement, Amber Heard claimed that Johnny Depp tortured her so badly that some of her bones were broken and blood flowed from various parts of her body.
On such claims of the actress, Johnny Depp's lawyers also asked him for medical history and at the same time asked if there is no medical history then why he did not get his wounds treated. While completing her statements, Amber Heard, while answering questions, once again claimed that she never raised her hand against her ex-husband but was tortured.
She also claimed that Johnny Depp used to torture him when he was intoxicated, but overall he was nice to him. Earlier, in her affidavit on May 5, Amber Heard had alleged in court that Johnny Depp had tortured her before dinner in a room in Australia after drinking alcohol in 2015, forcing her to eat. No, he stripped them naked while sexually abusing them with a bottle of wine.
Earlier, Johnny Depp had also given answers to Amber Heard's lawyers during the interrogation, including recording his statement in court for several days. During the interrogation, Johnny Depp denied all allegations of violence against Amber Heard and claimed that his ex-wife had abused him. During the interrogation, Johnny Depp admitted that he had been using alcohol and other drugs, but that he had never harmed any of his relatives or friends.
In addition to Johnny Depp, some of his witnesses, including his older sister and a female psychiatrist employed by him, have also appeared in court. The case is being heard by a seven-member jury while four additional members are also part of the jury. The trial is set to begin on April 13 in the county of Fairfax County, Virginia. The trial is expected to continue for another six to eight weeks, with the case likely to be decided by the end of July or mid-August 2022.
The last hearing of the case was held at the end of 2020 before the formal trial began, after which its hearings were postponed due to Corona. After Johnny Depp filed a 50 million lawsuit against his ex-wife in 2019, Amber Heard also filed a 1000 million counterclaim against him. Johnny Depp filed the lawsuit against his ex-wife after Amber Heard revealed in an article in the Washington Post that she had been a victim of domestic violence in her married life.
She did not name her ex-husband in the article, but according to Johnny Depp, Amber Heard was referring to her, which caused her to suffer mental stigma, including stigma.
