Amber Heard continued to inform her facet as Johnny Depp‘s libel trial against The Sun continued.
In dispute is the UK tabloid’s use of the time period “wife-beater” to explain the Pirates of the Caribbean star in a 2018 op-ed. He has attested that could be a false and defamatory description — resulting in a trial to primarily show in courtroom whether or not he actually victimized his ex-wife.

Here are the large factors…
Joshua Drew lived rent-free in Johnny’s constructing together with his then-wife — and Amber’s shut buddy — Racquel “Rocky” Pennington.
Mr. Drew testified on Wednesday, corroborating Amber’s earlier claims that Johnny was usually overcome with jealous rage. He mentioned:
“I understood from our interactions that Johnny was jealous.”
Some of his information got here secondhand, from conversations between Amber and Rocky, together with Johnny’s fixation on James Franco:
“Rocky told me, based on her conversations with Amber, that Johnny had a particular issue with James Franco because he and Amber had some intimate scenes in a project they were filming, which Johnny did not want her doing.”
That undertaking was The Adderall Diaries, and it was reportedly an enormous level of rivalry between the couple.
“His name came up often and it would cause fights between them. They were arguing about it very regularly.”
As a former neighbor Drew did witness issues himself additionally. He recalled:
“For example, during a trip to France I heard Johnny shouting at Amber about a role she had done. Johnny was shouting about a nudity rider in the film that she claimed was fraudulent and he accused her of knowing about and going against his wishes to include it. I knew from what had been discussed with Rocky and Amber that Johnny had demanded that Amber stop doing nudity in her films and that she cut down on intimate scenes with co-stars.”
He didn’t need her to do nude scenes? That’s some fairly crimson flaggy controlling BF conduct if true — to not point out fairly hypocritical coming from an actor who’s achieved loads of movies with nudity.

But in accordance with the testimony, Johnny was overcome with jealousy, even in movies:
“Rocky told me about various fights they had had over the years and said that Johnny was jealous of Amber’s co-stars.”
This actually matches Amber’s testimony from earlier within the week when she advised the courtroom on Monday that Johnny was jealous of all her co-stars:
“He would insist every male actor was trying to sleep with me and/or that I had had an affair with them, that he’d spoken to people and knew all about it. He would try and catch me out by taking my phone or telling me someone had told him I was having an affair and act as if he had information proving it — when I really hadn’t. He accused me of having affairs with each of my co-stars, movie after movie: Eddie Redmayne, James Franco, Jim Sturgess, Kevin Costner, Liam Hemsworth, Billy-Bob Thornton, Channing Tatum; even women co-stars like Kelly Garner.”
Amber claimed Johnny even gave the boys he was jealous of petty nicknames:
“He also accused me of having affairs with stars I auditioned with, like Leonardo DiCaprio. He would taunt me about it — especially when he was drunk or high — and had derogatory nicknames for every one of my male co-stars he considered a sexual threat… For example, Leonardo DiCaprio was ‘pumpkin-head,’ Channing Tatum was ‘potato-head’ and ‘Jim Turd Sturgess.’”
This is all very particular. And whereas Johnny’s jealousy isn’t proof of violence, it’s additionally a extremely dangerous look.
There was extra severe discuss of the home abuse on Wednesday although, as Amber responded to being grilled about her accidents — after witnesses known as by Johnny’s crew swore they noticed her after the alleged incidents and noticed nothing. The Justice League actress asserted when requested about one incident, by which a nurse claimed to not have seen the extreme accidents she claimed:
“I had two black eyes, a broken nose, a broken rib… I had bruises all over my body… I had bruised ribs, bruises all over my body, bruises on my forearms from trying to defend the blows. I had two black eyes, I had a broken nose, I had a broken lip… the really bad ones were in my hairline, on my scalp. There was chunks of hair missing, there was pus in those wounds in my hair line, dark red bruises… purple-red on my temples and on my chin. The inside of my upper lip was cut.”
Nurse Erin Boerum‘s medical notes, submitted into evidence said the medical professional was “unable to visualise haematomas the client described” but did note that Heard was “actively bleeding on her lip.”
Depp’s lawyer Eleanor Laws recommended to Amber she was “actively” bleeding as a result of she had bitten her personal lip proper earlier than the examination simply “for her benefit.” Amber responded:
“Of course not.”
Later Amber’s buddy and make-up artist, Mélanie Inglessis, took the stand to debate one other incident by which Amber’s alleged accidents couldn’t be seen — solely this time it wasn’t by a nurse however by an viewers of a whole bunch of 1000’s.

Amber’s look on The Late, Late Show with James Corden from December 16, 2015 was proven to the courtroom, displaying how her accidents — from an incident she described by which Johnny allegedly beat her, dragged her across the condominium, and choked her lower than 24 hours earlier — couldn’t be seen in any respect.
Watch for your self (beneath):
Inglessies testified Amber known as her to the condominium, which she noticed was certainly wrecked. The make-up artist mentioned she did see minor accidents on Amber, which she was capable of cowl:
“There was a cut or scab on [Heard’s] lip. She had minimal discoloration on the corners of her eyes by her nose… I used concealer to try and conceal some of the bruises… Amber’s signature lip color was red, I said we had no other choice [than to use it] to cover up the injury on her lip.”
When requested how she lined the bruises so simply, she replied:
“To my recollection they were not that dark or inflamed yet. I don’t remember having trouble covering them.”
Johnny’s legal professionals pointed to the testimony final week from stylist Samantha McMillen, who mentioned she might “see clearly” Amber had “no visible” accidents AND no make-up on that very same day.
