Amber Heard Breaks Down Saying People ‘Want to Put Her Baby in Microwave’
Amber told the jury that:
“I am harassed, humiliated, threatened, every single day. Even just walking into this courtroom. Sitting here in front of the world, having the worst parts of my life, things that I have lived through, used to humiliate me. People want to kill me and they tell me so every day. People want to put my baby in the microwave, and they tell me that.”
She also expressed:
“I live my life with these sets of rules I’ve to follow, my friends have to follow for me not to have a panic attack or a triggering event or I relive the trauma, even from training to do. In my movie, for instance, for training for Aquaman, a combat scene and a trigger happen. I have a meltdown and have to deal with that, the crew I work with has to deal with that, because of the damage I walk around with every single day. I am not sitting in this courtroom snickering. I’m not sitting in this courtroom laughing, smiling, or making snide jokes. I’m not. This is horrible.”
Johnny Depp is charging Amber $50 million in Virginia’s Fairfax County Circuit Court. This matter is over an op-ed published in December 2018. Heard wrote in The Washington Post describing herself as a victim of domestic abuse. Depp’s lawyers claimed that he was defamed by the article even though it never mentioned his name. Amber Heard also filed a $100 million charge against her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, after his lawyer stated her allegations were a hoax. Johnny said he never attacked Amber and that she composed the abuse allegations to gain a benefit in divorce proceedings. Not only this, but she also alleged Johnny about many more episodes of physical and sexual assault.
