Amber Heard alleged that Depp at one point attacked her and left her with a bloody lip. Heard’s team tried to prove the same with the help of a photo, but the same was not admitted in court because it wasn’t submitted in time for trial. The photo is the one attached above. Depp’s team denies the veracity of the picture.

Amber Heard narrated the alleged attack on her in court, she said, “I was in one of these fights, I believe it’s this one, in his downtown ECB, we call it, loft, and we’re in the kitchen living room area and he backhands me.” Heard continued, “And, you know, it was, you know, he wears a lot of rings. I remember kind of just feeling like my lip went into my teeth, and it got a little blood on the wall. Just that simple, a little bit of blood on the wall.”

Depp’s team had previously stated that Heard’s allegations have evolved with “new and convenient details” over the years and that she had been “preparing to give the performance of her life in this trial.” To this, Heard’s team replied, “The panicked Depp’s team is fighting tooth and nail to prevent compelling evidence and photos such as this from being introduced. They continue their losing strategy: distract the jury and demonize the defendant.”

Heard wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post about abusive relationships in 2018, titled: “Amber Heard: I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change“. While the article did not expressly mention him by name, Depp argued that it greatly damaged his career and sued Heard for Defamation. The trial for the 50 million dollar suit began in April 2022 and is ongoing, as of the date of writing of this article.
