Just after Heard’s attorneys were done with their questions, they asked her to speak about the emotional impact that affected her. Earlier, Depp’s former attorney accused Heard that she lied about being abused.

Amber Heard replied, “It’s torture. It’s torturous, No one should have to do that. I want to move on with my life.”

She went on to state that she wants to move on with everything and she hopes Depp to do the same. “I have a baby. I want to move on. … I want Johnny to move on, too. I want him to leave me alone.”

Heard told that she is forced to recall the “painful memories” because of the allegations she faces about abuse every day.

Embarrassing, intimate details that I never wanted to be known, never wanted to be public ever, and to have them used every single day to call me a liar,” Heard said. “I have to relive this every single day that I have to address those claims.”
