Controversy alert in the air! The official trial process between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp began on Monday, 11, in Virginia, United States. according to The New York Times, the suit is expected to last six weeks in Fairfaz County Circuit Court. This time, in addition to the allegations of aggression and defamation, Amber also accuses the actor of sexual violence.
But what happened?
Well, if you don’t follow this story, the Celebrities and Celebrities tell you all the details. The two met behind the scenes of “The Diary of a Drunk Journalist” and, in early 2012, started dating. Three years later, they got married and, just over two years later, they ended up putting an end to their relationship.
It turns out that, in addition to requesting a divorce, the actress also asked for a protective measure against the actor after appearing with a bruised face. At the time, she claimed that Johnny “violently attacked her”, as well as having thrown a phone in her face with “extreme force”. The actor denied all the allegations.
With a few days to go before the trial, the former couple published a note claiming that the situation was resolved. “Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always based on love. Neither party made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intention of physical or emotional harm,” they declared.
In 2018, the subject once again gained prominence in the media when Amber published a note in the The Washington Post sharing an experience of domestic violence. Even without mentioning Johnny’s name, he said he realized how protected men accused of abuse are.
It didn’t take long for him to file a new lawsuit against his ex, this time for defamation. “The editorial’s clear implication that Depp is a domestic abuser is categorically and demonstrably false. His allegations are part of a hoax designed to generate positive publicity for Ms. Heard and further her career,” wrote the actor’s attorney.
This Tuesday, 12, shortly after the beginning of the trial, Amber added a new accusation to the process, alleging sexual assault. According to rolling stonethe actress’ lawyers claimed that in a drunken moment, Johnny would have abused and sexually assaulted her.
“He put her against the bar. He threw bottles and bottles at her. He dragged her across the floor over the broken bottles. He punched her. He kicked her. He told her he was going to kill her, and he hates her. He was hitting her. And then he penetrates her with a bottle of liquor,” said Elaine Bredehoft, Amber’s lawyer.
Depp’s lawyer rejects allegations
Camille Vasquez, who took over the case, countered the charge and said that: “That was never part of your abuse allegations in 2016. So what has changed? When she realized the gravity of what she claimed, she panicked and claimed sexual assault. In the 58 years of Mr. Depp, no woman has ever accused you of violence.”
In social networks, the matter is reverberating. Fans are tagging “Justice For Johnny Depp” in support of the actor. Meanwhile, Amber’s lawyer stated that people will get to know him for real, beyond red carpets, fame and money.
