The fight for defamation between the stars has been going on for years already. The fight had started a long time ago, however, it only came to light in 2016 itself. Things only got increasingly heated since then. For instance, Amber branding Johnny as a wife-beater in 2018.
The attorney for the star of the Pirates Of The Caribbean brings in new evidence. The bodycam footage from the Los Angeles police department (LAPD) officers who responded to the second of two 911 calls. The presence of the force proved the claims made by Aquaman star Amber Heard to be completely false.
To shed some light on the situation, four different LAPD officers visited Heard and Depp’s apartment that night, due to Heard’s friends calling 911 twice. The second duo that went in were equipped with bodycams and therefore, have proper footage about the scene that had gone down between the two that night. Now, ahead of Depp’s upcoming $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard, which will take place in Virginia in April 2022, Depp’s lawyers are revealing depositions from the first two officers and body camera footage.
According to Heard, she claims that Depp hit her face with a phone back in 2016. Apparently, the fight took place around the entirety of their home at the time. The home consists of an entire floor of five apartments converted into a single residence (complete with a private elevator). The actress and her friend, Rocky Pennington, both gave their depositions about the incident.
“They have a big kitchen island in the middle of the kitchen and on there, there’s candles and like fruit and, you know, glass, like jars and vases and things like that. And he just was hitting everything with the wine bottle, just smashing it all off. So there was fruit on the floor and baskets and, you know, glass bottles and flowers.”
Heard’s statement was also vaguely similar:
“We have huge heavy silver candlesticks, candelabra sticks. Those were on the floor broken. Baskets of fruit that we had on the kitchen island. There … fruit everywhere. Baskets on the ground. The containers holding the spoons and forks, kitchen utensils, those were spilled. He broke a lot of glass things that left glass on the floor … when he walked out into the hallway, you could see wine spilled all over the ground and wine on the walls and … and so I knew that at least he had gone through there and was like sloshing wine anywhere.”
However, the footage from the bodycam says otherwise according to Depp’s lawyer, Adam Waldman:
“Amber Heard and her friends described a chaotic, messy crime scene but the newly released LAPD bodycam videos unambiguously show that the penthouse was utterly undamaged and that their testimony was one more grandiose lie.”
