After meeting on the set of The Rum Diary in 2011, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard married in February 2015. In May 2016, the Aquaman actress filed for divorce and at the same time requested a restraining order for domestic violence against Johnny Depp, 58 years old. Currently, the couple are fighting in Fairfax Court for $100 million defamation. The trial continues and new evidence is presented in court every day.
It is the pre-recorded deposition of Christian Carino which was heard by the jury on Wednesday April 27. Christian Carino is a talent agent who represented Heard and Depp for Creative Artists Agency. His deposition notably updated details referring to a desire for reconciliation on the part of Amber Heard a year after their separation. Carino said he was a confidant and close friend of 36-year-old Amber Heard at the time. He was notably questioned about the messages exchanged with the actress in August 2017.
“I just want him to know that I love him and that I’m sorry”
It was Johnny Depp’s legal team who read aloud the texts exchanged between Heard and Carino. “I wrote so many notes. Can you give her one? I don’t know how or where to start. There’s no right way to start and all I have to say, but I I have so many. I am finally single, clear in my heart and in my mind. I just want him to know that I love him and that I am sorry”, wrote Amber Heard about Johnny Depp.
In his testimony, Christian Carino says he believed the actress wanted to reconcile with the Pirates of the Caribbean actor at the time. Note that the relationship between Amber Heard and Elon Musk had ended that same month, August 2017.
