The love of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, for whom he destroyed his 14-year-old home, first led to marriage, and then to Hollywood’s longest legal battle. The couple, who were married between 2015 and 2017, once again faced each other in the courtroom. The “first act” of this legal process took place in the UK last year.
Depp, whose career was damaged in this process, filed a defamation lawsuit against The Sun Newspaper, which used the term “a man who beat his wife” about himself. At the time of the trial, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp shared their trump cards in the courtroom in London. The person who lost that case was Depp, but the incident did not end there.
FIRST TRIAL WAS HELD YESTERDAY
The famous actress filed a defamation lawsuit of $ 50 million against her ex-wife. In response to this move, Heard filed a $100 million defamation lawsuit against Johnny Depp. The first hearing of that case was held yesterday at the Fairfax County Courthouse in Virginia, USA. The trial, in which the ex-couple faced each other, was marked by the accusations they brought against each other.
“HE IS LYING”
The couple’s lawyers also made interesting descriptions of the two celebrities. Depp’s lawyers accused Amber Heard of “lying”, claiming that she was preparing to give the performance of her life.
Amber Heard’s lawyers also referred to Depp, claiming that “this trial will reveal his true face hidden behind pirate costume and fame”.
“SALDIRGAN TARAF HEARD!”
The lawyers of Johnny Depp, who spoke first at the hearing, denied Heard’s repeated allegations of “emotional, physical, sexual violence and harassment”.
Benjamin Chew, one of Depp’s lawyers, claimed that Amber Heard was the aggressor in this relationship. As proof of this, Chew said that Johnny Depp’s previous relationship with Winona Ryder, Kate Moss, and Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has two children, never made any allegations of violence against the actor.
The lawyer claimed that the testimonies would also reveal that Amber Heard’s “Johnny Depp harassed me” accusations were false.
“VIOLENCE PROVEN BY MEDICAL REPORTS”
Depp’s other lawyer, Camille Vasquez, also stated that the only person who was harmed by the violence in the couple’s relationship was the actor. The lawyer stated that while they were in Australia, Amber Heard threw a bottle at Depp, resulting in the actor’s hand injury. She added that this is proven by medical reports.
‘POSTAGE’ AND ‘RAPE’ MYTH
During the trial, Amber Heard’s lawyers made striking allegations against Johnny Depp. Elaine Bredehoft, one of Heard’s lawyers, claimed that Depp took the actress hostage and raped her for three days while they were in Australia in 2015.
Bredeford’s claims were not limited to this. Again, in 2015, the lawyer claimed that Depp harassed Heard, this time in the Bahamas. It was stated that Heard will also talk about Depp’s verbal, emotional, physical and sexual abuses towards him during the hearings, which are expected to last six weeks.
HIS SISTER LISTENED
Depp’s older sister, Christi Dembrowski, was also heard as a witness. Dembrowski, emphasizing that his brother is far from violence, described Depp as a kind and loving father to his two children.
About 120 witnesses are expected to be heard during the trial.
