Amber Heard ends testimony, details op-ed centered in Johnny Depp case

Amber Heard wrapped up her testimony Tuesday after four days on the witness stand in the libel suit filed against her by her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.

Depp’s attorney CamilleVasquez on Tuesday afternoon ended her cross-examination of Heard, which was followed by the redirect questioning of Heard, lasting only a few minutes, as Depp’s lawyers objected to nearly every question that Heard’s lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, tried to ask.

A portion of the cross-examination regarded a fight Heard had with Depp in Australia in March 2015. The actress previously testified that he sexually assaulted her with a liquor bottle during the fight, and he has testified that she severed the type of his finger. Both have denied the other’s allegations.

“I just remember being aware that I was being assaulted by a bottle on the countertop,” Heard alleged. “This was a multi-day assault that took place over three horrible days.”

When asked why there was no evidence of injury from her sexual assault, she confirmed she “didn’t seek treatment.”

Vasquez said Heard didn’t seem to be scared of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor despite the alleged assault.

“This is a man who tried to kill me,” Heard testified in response. “Of course it’s scary. He’s also my husband.”
