“We were worried”: Johnny Depp’s Lawyers Admit They Were Worried About Losing Trial Against Amber Heard After the Aquaman Star Convinced the Jury of Her “Lies”

Johnny Depp's Lawyers Admit They Were Worried About Losing Trial Against Amber Heard

In the brand-new, Johnny vs. Amber: The US Trial documentary on Discovery+, Johnny Depp’s attorney Benjamin Chow acknowledges that Amber Heard “came across as credible” in her deposition. A teaser from the two-part documentary series, which will premiere on Discovery+ next week, shows the actor’s team addressing the trial.

The documentary tells the inside story of the trial, which was streamed across the world and viewed by millions on social media. When the defamation lawsuit began, it was announced that the trial would be televised and converted into a documentary. The entire legal drama has been in the spotlight, with the duo making headlines every other day.

What does Johnny Depp’s lawyer have to say about the case?

Depp sued Heard for $50 million for purportedly hinting in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed that he assaulted her. Although she did not mention him, he stated that the article had an impact on his capacity to work. Heard had filed a countersuit accusing Depp of leading a “smear campaign” against her and characterized his case as “abuse and harassment.”

Now, Johnny Depp’s lawyer, Benjamin Chow, has commented about the case in the documentary, saying that they were concerned because Amber Heard’s deposition was coming across as trustworthy during the trial. “Halfway through the case, we were worried about Amber because, during the deposition, there were times, there were moments when she came across credible,” the lawyer stated.

Amber Heard had accused Johnny Depp of being a self-proclaimed “monster,” frequently assaulting her during furious drug-induced rages, shattering furniture, and sexually assaulting her at one time in what she characterized as a “cavity search” for cocaine he thought she had concealed from him.

“We felt that somebody needed to explain to the jury why someone as presentable as Amber Heard would make up these horrific stories of abuse,” Johnny Depp’s lawyer stated. The documentary will be available on Discovery+. When the trial concluded and Depp was declared the winner, Amber Heard stated that even the jury was captivated by their favorite performer.

Even though the Pirates of the Caribbean actor won the verdict, many people believe Heard is innocent, especially after the release of the unsealed documents including dirty Depp secrets. Many people, though, continue to oppose her.

The documentary will be available on Discovery+ on Tuesday, September 20th.
