Johnny Depp's Lawyer Slams Amber Heard, Accuses Her of Abuse

David Sherborne, Johnny Depp‘s lawyer, laid into his ex wife Amber Heard in court today in the closing arguments for Johnny‘s trial against a UK tabloid for calling him a wife beater. Johnny has repeatedly denied these claims.

First, David spoke of alleged abuse photos of Amber.

“They [pictures of Heard's injuries] are taken of an actress, someone who is familiar with the use of make-up, make-up to change your character, make-up to present a fictional scene, make-up to ensure the audience believes what they see before them,” he said. “But most importantly this, none of the so-called injuries which they are meant to prove have been examined or investigated by anyone remotely professional.”

“That is a striking feature of this case,” he added.

He continued that Amber “deliberately sought to hide or play down her misuse of drink and illegal drugs”.

He added that Amber always said the “medical notes were wrong. They were right when it suited her and wrong when it didn’t. How convenient. Doctors were lying, nurses were lying, police officers were lying. Only Ms Heard was correct, at all times no matter what.”

He then said that Amber had a “propensity to violence. She is the abuser – not Mr Depp. He is no wife beater.”

In court the day prior, a private email Amber wrote to Johnny was read out loud in court.
