Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial: jurors hear conflicting accounts of marriage
The Guardian says contradictory, explosive accounts of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s tumultuous three-year marriage have been presented to jurors on the opening day of Depp’s libel case against his ex-wife in a US court, with Depp’s lawyers accusing Heard of fabricating domestic violence claims against him to advance her own career.
Heard’s attorneys, meanwhile, argued that her allegations are true, she had a right to express her views, “and all Mr Depp has wanted to do is humiliate Amber, to haunt her, to wreck her career”.
Opposing profiles of the movie stars – with Heard’s counsel presenting Depp as “an obsessed ex-husband hellbent on revenge” and Heard described as a woman who would “resort to physical violence, throwing things, to prevent Mr Depp from leaving” – were heard during opening statements.
