Amber Heard, 36, gave the ‘performance of her life’ as she testified in court, Johnny Depp’s legal team said after she provided testimony about their life as a couple.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star is suing his ex-wife for defamation over an article she wrote in The Washington Post, saying her claims have ruined his reputation and ended his career.
The Aquaman star filed a countersuit against Depp, saying his legal team falsely accused her of fabricating claims.
Heard told the court in Fairfax, Virginia, that her ex-husband repeatedly hit and verbally abused her, and also s*xually abused her.
After her testimony, a spokesperson for Depp said: “As (his) counsel predicted in their opening statements last month Ms Heard did indeed deliver ‘the performance of her life’ in her direct examination.
“While Ms Heard’s stories have continued to grow new and convenient details, Mr Depp’s recollections have remained exactly the same throughout the six painful years since her first allegations were made.”
“His truth – the truth – is the same no matter the environment in which it has been presented,” the spokesperson continued.
“The upcoming cross-examination from Mr Depp’s team will be most telling and will highlight the many fallacies Ms Heard has now attempted to pass off as fact throughout her convoluted testimony.”
A spokesperson for Heard responded and said: “As evidenced by the statement released, Mr Depp’s defamation claim is falling apart so rapidly that his counsel are turning from prosecutor to persecutor.”
“They boast that Mr Depp’s story has not changed. If so, since he lost the Domestic Violence Restraining Order and he resoundingly lost the libel case in the UK, perhaps he should consider a new strategy rather than the recycled approach of attacking the victim and refusing to take responsibility for his own conduct.
“Mr Depp’s behavior in this trial has been as pitiful as it was in their marriage.”
The trial is due to resume next week.
