Although he was also seen smiling on several occasions during the closing arguments, when Camille Vasquez gave her arguments as to why her client was a victim of defamation and we also saw her very smiling at the end of the hearing, when she hugged her lawyer, Elaine Bredehoftfrom whom he said goodbye with this warm gesture that we have seen him have on several occasions with his representatives before the court throughout the entire trial. For the closing of the trial, Amber chose a gray suit that she combined with a striped shirt. Since the legal process began, the actress has chosen sober looks, the most recurrent being matching jackets and pants in dark colors such as black, brown, although we also saw her wear shades such as beige and white.
In her last testimony, Amber broke down in tears in front of the jury when talking about the harassment she has suffered since the trial began, she even denounced being the victim of death threats by netizens who have also written about her daughter: “People want to kill me and they tell me every day. People want to put my baby in the microwave and they tell me”, she commented yesterday when she was called back to the stand. During the interrogation, the actress denied having been the source that sent the video published, in 2015, by TMZbut fell into a contradiction by assuring that, if it had been her, she would have done it differently. It was at that moment that Camille VasquezDepp’s lawyer, reminded him that his first chance on the stand stated, under oath, that he did not know how to leak this type of information to the media. To close the trial, Depp’s lawyer was direct when defending her client: “During the relationship with Mr. Depp, she was violent, abusive and cruel”Vasquez said as Amber listened intently.
This week was not easy for Amber Heard, as there were several details that showed her in front of the court, such as the testimony of Kate Mossex-girlfriend of Johnny, who testified via zoom, last Wednesday. During her statement, the model denied the version that Amber gave to the jury about an alleged incident with the actor when they were dating. Kate assured that Johnny never pushed heras Heard recounted in his testimony on May 17, where he said that, in an argument with the actor (in 2015), he remembered how he had thrown his ex-girlfriend down the stairs, an incident that, according to Moss, did not happen : “No, he never pushed me, kicked me or threw me down the stairs”Said the top model. Although the final hearings of the trial uncovered some inconsistencies in Amber’s testimony, as a final argument, the defense of the actress spoke about the right of expression and invited the jury to take as a form of violence the texts and audios where Johnny insults her.
