The ongoing defamation trial of Amber Heard and her ex-husband Johnny Depp took a surprise turn due to an involvement of a third party who has previously been mentioned during the trial. The trial is about to conclude in a few days and now the witness stand holds a strong position than ever as the final testimonies will decide the fate of the involving parties.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s Trial began on April 11 and the weeks long trial is in its ending stage with the last testimonies deciding the outcome. Amber Heard, on Thursday, commented in her last minutes on the witness stand stating that she wasn’t surprised by last-minute testimonies from Kate Moss and a hotel manager in favour of Johnny Depp.
Amber Heard Blasts Kate Moss’s Testimony
With the last-minute testimony of Kate Moss, Amber Heard said that she wasn’t surprised since she has already witnessed how people will do anything to curry favor with her ex-husband Johnny Depp. Heard claims that this is the reason she wrote the 2018 op-ed in the Washington Post which led her to the ongoing trial.
“I know how many people will come out in support of him… I know how many people will come out and say whatever for him. That’s his power. That’s why I wrote the op-ed, I was speaking to that phenomenon, how many people will come out in support of him and fall to his power. He is a very powerful man and people love currying favour with powerful men. And I know that first-hand, I’ve lived it. I have seen people do this time and time again, that’s why I wrote the op-ed.”
Kate Moss Clarified The ‘Rumors’ About The Infamous Stairs Incident Connecting Johnny Depp
During the trial, Heard recalled Depp attempting to attack her sister at the top of a staircase thinking specifically about the alleged rumor that Johnny Depp had previously thrown Moss down the stairs.
“I had heard that rumor from multiple people. Of course, that’s what flashed through my head when my violent husband not only swung for me, but all of a sudden, swung for my sister. Of course, I thought of that. I didn’t expect her to show up or not to show up, it doesn’t matter.”
Though she briefly appeared in the trial and clarified that Johnny Depp, “never pushed me, or kicked me, or threw me down the stairs.” She described that incident where she had fallen and hurt her back, and that is when Depp saw her and carried her to the hotel room and immediately called for medical attention.
After both sides complete their closing arguments, the trial will be wrapped up on Friday.
