The trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard continues in court in Fairfax, Virginia. On Wednesday April 27, new elements were made available to the court. There was in particular the pre-recorded deposition of Christian Carino which suggested that Amber Heard, 36, wanted to reconcile with Johnny Depp, 58, a year after their divorce. In the $100 million defamation lawsuit between the ex-spouses, a letter that Heard’s attorney sent to Depp’s legal team in May 2016 was made available to jurors. A letter sent just days after the Aquaman actress filed for divorce following a dispute at their home.
Amber Heard has notably issued a list of financial and heritage demands in return for “keeping this matter out of the spotlight”, reports the Daily Mail. Included in this list is the exclusive use and possession of the black Range Rover she was driving. However, it was the Pirates of the Caribbean actor who made the payments for the vehicle. She also wanted to live rent-free in the three Los Angeles penthouses she occupied with her friends. Real estate all owned by Johnny Depp. The list also included a request for payment of $125,000 to cover legal and accounting fees.
Amber Heard wanted a private and amicable resolution
Amber Heard’s lawyer at the time, Samantha Spector, had sent this letter titled: “In RE: Marriage of Depp” to Jacob Bloom, Johnny Depp’s lawyer on May 24, 2016. Three days before, the actress had claimed to have been hit with a mobile phone. An assertion that a police officer dispatched to the scene at that time contradicted in court.
“Although Amber is afraid of Johnny, she strongly urges us to do everything we can to keep this personal matter out of the media spotlight, which is why she hasn’t filed for a temporary restraining order yet and why we didn’t arrange for Johnny to be personally subpoenaed at the movie premiere last night,” Samantha Spector wrote in the letter, adding that her client wanted a private, amicable resolution.
