Between Johnny Depp’s testimony and Amber Heard’s testimony, a lot of information was made public during the libel trial Depp brought against Heard. As Mamas Uncut previously reported, Depp sued his ex-wife following a 2018 op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post, in which said she was a victim of domestic abuse.
While Heard never mentioned Depp by name in the op-ed, Depp says he lost out on several jobs due to the accusation. Now, the former couple is battling out publicly in a Virginia courtroom.
Between both of the actors’ testimonies, it has been made very clear just how toxic their marriage was. And it has captivated America.
Eagled-Eyed Fans Are Calling Out an Inconsistency in Amber Heard’s Testimony After She Claimed She Wasn’t a Fan of Johnny Depp’s Work Before Their Relationship
Now, the internet is calling out a glaring inconsistency in Heard’s testimony. While a lot has been said by Depp and Heard, Heard was asked if she was a fan of Depp prior to their relationship.
Heard told the court that “I knew who he was,” Heard testified. “I wasn’t familiar, you know. I wasn’t a fan of his work. I wasn’t familiar with him.”
However, a TikTok user has managed to find an interview from 2011 in which Heard claims the exact opposite. “I mean who isn’t a fan of Johnny’s? That’s a given,” Heard to the interviewer at the time. “He’s been a cultural icon and a talented actor for since I can remember.”
The 2011 interview was part of the press tour for the movie that ultimately brought Heard and Depp together. The former couple met on the set of their movie, The Rum Diary.
As Mamas Uncut reported, following Heard’s explosive and shocking testimony, which occurred this past week, both Depp’s and Heard’s legal teams issued statements. “As Mr. Depp’s counsel correctly predicted in their opening statements last month, Ms. Heard did indeed deliver ‘the performance of her life’ in her direct examination.”
The statement that was issued to People continued, saying, “While Ms. Heard’s stories have continued to grow new and convenient details, Mr. Depp’s recollections have remained exactly the same throughout the six painful years since her first allegations were made,” Depp’s spokesperson continues. “His truth — the truth — is the same no matter the environment in which it has been presented.”
“The upcoming cross-examination from Mr. Depp’s team will be most telling, and will certainly highlight the many fallacies Ms. Heard has now attempted to pass off as fact throughout her convoluted testimony,” the spokesperson concluded.
Shortly after Depp’s team released their statement, Heard’s team followed suit. “As evidenced by the statement just released, Mr. Depp’s defamation claim is falling apart so rapidly that his counsel is turning from prosecutor to persecutor.”
Heard’s statement, also issued to People, continues to say, “They boast that Mr. Depp’s story has not changed. If so, since he lost the Domestic Violence Restraining Order and he resoundingly lost the libel case in the UK, perhaps he should consider a new strategy rather than the recycled approach of attacking the victim, and refusing to take responsibility for his own conduct. If Mr. Depp was truly innocent, why has he repeatedly apologized to Ms. Heard and promised to put the ‘monster away for good.’”
Heard’s spokesperson added that one of Heard’s “disappointments” is Depp’s “inability to distinguish fact from fiction — a malady which appears to have spread to his legal team. That same team is so panicked they are fighting tooth and nail to prevent compelling evidence and photos from being introduced. Small wonder Mr. Depp does not have the fortitude or courage to even look at Ms. Heard at all throughout the proceedings — as he could not in the UK trial — and, instead he doodles and snickers.”
“Mr. Depp’s behavior in this trial has been as pitiful as it was in their marriage,” the statement continues. “Apparently, they feel they must double-down on their demonstrably losing two-part strategy: distract the jury and demonize the victim.”
Depp remains steadfast that he never hit Heard or any other woman in his life.
