Johnny Depp's Lawyer Accuses Amber Heard of Lying in Court After Describing Alleged Abuse

Amber Heard was accused of lying in court by one of Johnny Depp‘s lawyers, Eleanor Laws.

In court today, footage from Johnny and Amber‘s Thanksgiving celebration in November 2015 was played for the courtroom and showed guests apparently having a good time.

Amber had previously said that Johnny had been abusive with her that night, and Johnny‘s lawyer asked her to explain the footage shown to the court room as no violence could be seen.

Amber said, “Our fights never happened in front of the family. They typically happened after everyone had gone to bed.”

Laws then said, “You are making up this up as you go along.”

Then, Laws focused on a different night in December of 2015 where Amber previously said was “one of the worst and most violent nights of our relationship.” Laws read the witness statement which included Amber saying he had ripped out her hair and punched her. Laws said, “That’s just a complete set of lies, isn’t it?”

Amber replied, “No.”

“You didn’t have any bruises at all when you saw [nurse] Erin Boerum, did you?” Laws added, to which Amber responded, “I had two black eyes, a broken nose, a broken rib… I had bruises all over my body. I had bruised ribs, bruises all over my body, bruises on my forearms from trying to defend the blows. I had two black eyes, I had a broken nose, I had a broken lip… the really bad ones (bruises) were in my hairline, on my scalp. There was chunks of hair missing, there was pus in those wounds in my hair line, dark red bruises… purple-red on my temples and on my chin. The inside of my upper lip was cut.”

Laws added, “This is just nonsense, isn’t it? She (Ms Boerum) didn’t see any bruising… you had just bitten your lip because there was fresh blood on it. Had you just done that for her benefit?”

Amber then replied, “Of course not.”

Johnny is suing a UK tabloid for calling him a wife beater and he has repeatedly denied these allegations.

In court earlier this week, Amber‘s private conversations with two celebrities were also made public.
