Amber Heard’s Alleged Bottle Incident involving Johnny Depp

During the cross-examination on Tuesday, Depp’s attorney, Camille Vasquez, brought up the alleged bottle incident that happened in March 2015 in Australia according to Amber Heard.

Vasquez asked Heard about her claim that Depp violated her with a bottle of Maker’s Mark bourbon during a fight in March 2015.

Vasquez read Heard’s testimony, “While smashing the phone, Johnny severely cut his finger off the top of it.” 

Heard affirmed her statement by saying, “That’s correct!”

Vasquez went on to ask, “After Mr Depp smashed the phone, he held you down on the countertop by the neck.” To which, Heard replied, “I’m not quite sure the exact sequence of things, but yes both of those things happened.” The whole scenario became contradictory as according to Vasquez, “He held you down on the countertop by the neck, and this when Mr Depp supposedly assaulted you with the bottle.”

According to Heard’s testimony, Vasquez phrased, “Either he has the bottle, before or after he is holding you by the neck on the countertop.”

With the series of questions, Heard pushed back, saying she can’t remember the exact sequence of events and has never claimed to do so. “As I’ve always said, I don’t remember exactly what happened first or the exact sequence of events, I just remember being aware that I was being assaulted by a bottle while I was on the countertop.”

She further asked Heard, why there were no medical records from the alleged assault, despite the latter claiming that she sustained cuts to her feet and was bleeding to which Heard replied, “I didn’t seek treatment.”

Johnny Depp has a different version of the Bottle Incident

Heard previously testified she feared the bottle inside her was broken. A photo taken after the alleged assault which was displayed in court Tuesday showed the bottle was still intact.

Johnny Depp on the other hand has a completely different story from Heard. He still stands to the same point that he was the victim who lost the tip of his middle finger when Heard hurled a vodka bottle at him. According to his lawyer, he tried to hide from Heard as she roamed around the house banging on doors, trying to find him.

“You’re the one who assaulted someone with a bottle in Australia, isn’t that right, Ms. Heard?” Vasquez asked. “You weren’t scared of him at all, were you?”

To which, Heard responded, “I didn’t assault Johnny in Australia. I didn’t assault Johnny ever.”
