Things are really heating up at the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial. But, when haven’t they been? Since the proceedings began over one month ago, jurors, courtroom attendees, and those of us sitting at home have been taking in every last bit of information surrounding the defamation lawsuit with all its brutal ups and downs. Most recently, Amber Heard sat down on the bench to give her testimony to the alleged abuse that she suffered at the hands of Johnny Depp and was cross-examined by one of the members of Depp’s legal team. 

You can see the full video of Amber Heard’s cross examination at the trial below.

For those looking for the highlights, we’ve got you covered. The lawyer dove right in. Letting no time pass, the lawyer quickly put Amber Heard in the hot seat and began grilling her in what would become one and a half hours of testimony. Photographs and public appearances took center stage during this part of the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial as Johnny Depp’s lawyer appear to attempt to uncover a “got ya” moment regarding Heard’s claims that Depp physically abused her on several occasions. One such alleged instance happened the night before Heard appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden all the way back in 2015. In her initial statement, Heard claimed that she had suffered a broken nose and that the floor was blood soaked with her lip busted open. 

This became a main talking point for Amber Heard during the trial. Depp’s lawyers showed the Aquaman actress’ appearance on James Corden’s late night talk show and viewers could immediately see where the attorney was heading with her latest point. In the clip, viewers see a fresh faced Heard cracking jokes with Corden with no obvious signs of bruising. When questioned, Heard testified that the bruises were covered up by her makeup team and that she had been very concerned about what could be spotted by those tuning into the broadcast. Makeup has played a big role in the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial as Heard has claimed time and time again that it was her main tool in hiding the alleged abuse from the public eye.

The cross examination comes quite some time into the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial, after Heard gave her initial statements, chronicling the alleged abuse that she suffered at the hands of her ex-husband. Along with presenting her accounts of abuse, Heard also brought forth the idea that Depp had run a smear campaign against her, turning the public against the actress and getting them on his side before and during the run of the very public trial. She also claimed during her testimony that certain pieces of her photographic evidence were not allowed to be presented during the proceedings, something that caused for quite a few hiccups during this bit of back and forth. 

While the latest Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial surrounds an op-ed Heard did with The Washington Post through which Depp claims that his name was defamed and dragged through the mud, the proceedings haven’t touched much on the piece itself. Rather, Heard’s lawyers have been taking the route of attempting to prove that she was assaulted while Depp’s lawyers have been striving to cast a shadow of doubt on Heard’s claims. No matter the case, Heard’s time on the stand facing cross examination was a long and grueling hour and a half of testimony that is a must see. You can watch the piece in its entirety above.
