Johnny Depp video that could be key evidence in Amber Heard trial
The trial between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp could take a turn in favor of the actor after a video emerged showing Heard’s adultery.
In 2018, actress Amber Heard published an article in which she claimed to be a victim of domestic violence. Faced with this, Warner producers decided to leave aside actor Johnny Depp from their projects, however, Depp did not stay with his arms crossed and his legal team accused the actress of defamation, as well as damage to his image.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star’s legal team pointed out that everything published by Heard is false and launched a $50 million dollar lawsuit, a lawsuit that was answered by the actress with a $100 million dollar counterclaim. The litigation could still last for several more weeks, however, a video could be the weapon that helps Johnny Depp win the lawsuit.
The video that can change everything
In the images, Heard is seen meeting in the couple’s apartment with two men: tech mogul Elon Musk and actor James Franco. Both are called to testify on Depp’s behalf, to prove that they had a relationship with Heard while she was still married to the 58-year-old actor.
In the video Heard, wearing only a robe, is riding the elevator down to the parking garage of her building in Los Angeles (where she and Depp lived for several years), and then lets a man into the elevator who is allegedly fellow actor James Franco. They both go up again and head towards the actress’s apartment.
In case these images are verified, the encounter occurred a day after the alleged fight in which Johnny Depp left bruises on the actress, so the counterclaim of $100 million dollars that the actress launched against her ex-husband would not prosper, giving a favorable blow to the star of Pirates of the Caribbean.
A source close to Johnny Depp revealed that the actor, 58, is likely to take the stand Tuesday in the defamation trial against his former wife Amber Heard to testify under oath in Fairfax, Virginia, with his ex’s lawyers expected to cross-examine him the following day.
