Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against Amber Heard is ongoing. The actor has sued the Aquaman star over an op-ed she wrote in the Washington Post for $50 million. The actress countersued her ex-husband for $100 million. In the first few weeks, Johnny Depp testified where he claimed that the accusations against him are false. Also, he accused Amber Heard was the one who hit him. Recently, Amber Heard took the stand and testified against the Pirates of the Caribbean star. Her direct examination ended mid-day on Monday, and that is when her cross-examination started.
Johnny Depp’s Lawyer asks Amber Heard why she smiled in her deposition
During her cross-examination, Amber Heard is seen to be a little off and also changed her testimony. The lawyer also questioned her regarding the intentions behind writing the op-ed. Camille Vasquez has been grilling Amber Heard and got her to confess about her failure to donate the promised sum. The lawyer has been constantly grilling the actress to explain each event in a sequence but the actress kept denying it.
Also, she asked the Aquaman star why she was smiling in the clip of her deposition. The actress kept denying the statement. The lawyer even asked what she found so amusing during the testimony that she couldn’t help but smile. Also, she called her out for rolling her eyes in the same clip. The actress said, “I wasn’t smiling because of the audio, I’m smiling because of what’s happening around me.”
Other points Johnny Depp’s lawyer has grilled Amber Heard for
Amber Heard, during the direct examination, had shared elaborate events of abuse, including the couple’s “big fight” in Australia. Camille Vasquez then played a recording of the conversation the couple had on the same. Johnny Depp is heard saying in the recordings that he went to “five bathrooms and two bedrooms to escape the fight.”
She started questioning the stress about it but she was in denial. She denied everything the lawyer asked her about her hitting Johnny Depp and injuring him. Thanks to the cross-questioning of Camille Vasquez, the case seems to be balanced. To watch the proceedings, you can check out the live streaming online.
The final judgment will be released on May 27.
