Une week after the verdict, the bitterness is still strong on the side of the clan of Amber Heard. Her sister Whitney thus gave her her support via Instagram, at a time when messages in favor of the actress remain very much in the minority… “I remain by your side, my sister. Yesterday, today and tomorrow, I will always be proud of you for standing up for yourself, for testifying, she wrote in a very personal message, sharing the hashtag #IStandWithAmberHeard. And to be the voice for so many people who can’t talk about the things that happen behind closed doors. »
According to her, if Amber lost, it was because the battle was, from the start, skewed – an allusion to the massive mobilization of Johnny Depp fans on social networks, orchestrated by the defense of the actor. “We knew this was going to be a tough battle and the cards were against us, but you stood up and spoke regardless. I am so honored to have testified for you, and I will do it a million times over because I know what I saw and because the truth is forever on your side. I am so sorry that this was not reflected in the decision that this jury made. »
“I hate you f***es!” »
Whitney Henriquez had come to the bar to tell, in particular, how Johnny Depp had lost his temper one evening against her, pushing her in the back, provoking an immediate reaction from her sister Amber, who had slapped her husband, telling him to away from her… Johnny Depp would then have seen red, treated the sisters of all names and hit Amber Heard, while his bodyguard separated them. “I hear Johnny screaming: ‘I hate you dirty p***’, I hear the sound of objects being broken,” she confided at the trial, specifying that the star of Pirates of the Caribbean tried to hush up the affair by getting her to sign a confidentiality agreement, which she refused.
A version largely toned down by Johnny Depp’s bodyguard, as the magazine recalled at the time Peoplewhich specified that security guard McGivern had rather insisted on the insults and a blow struck by Amber Heard in the face of her husband that day… What to confuse the tracks and leave the jurors confused, as was the case during the whole trial, where many testimonies were contradicted by others.
For the time being, Amber Heard accuses the blow and plans to appeal, which supposes to finance a new legal war, which has already cost him more than 6 million dollars, a real fortune. Her lawyer has already clarified that the actress had “absolutely no” means to pay the 8.3 million to which the justice condemned her for having defamed Johnny Depp in her militant column published in 2018 in the WashingtonPost.
On the contrary, Johnny Depp shows off and suddenly seems to find a taste for life. the DailyMail reports that he spent nearly 60,000 euros to celebrate his victory this weekend in the company of British musician Jeff Beck and friends in an Indian restaurant in Birmingham, privatized for the occasion. At the same time, he decided to open an account on TikTok which, after two days of existence and a simple video posted, had already garnered 4.5 million subscribers, a sign of popularity still intact…
