This is undoubtedly the most commented on trial since the beginning of 2022. Tuesday, May 17, 2022, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp were once again confronted during the defamation trial led by the actor against his former companion. Amber Heard was on the stand and was questioned by Camille Vasquez, one of Johnny Depp’s lawyers. The questions centered on the actress’ May 22, 2016, request for a temporary domestic violence restraining order against the comedian so she could change the locks. Amber Heard then assured that she could no longer sleep because she felt insecure and was always afraid that her husband would arrive at her house.

It was then that the lawyer asked her if she “felt comfortable receiving James Franco on the evening of May 22, 2016”. According to People, the actress then replied, “I don’t know when James came.” The lawyer therefore released surveillance footage of an elevator with Amber Heard and James Franco with the timestamp of May 22, 2016, around 11 p.m. In the images, the two protagonists seem to be very close.

Amber Heard then confirmed that it was indeed James Franco on the video and that they were both heading to his penthouse. “That’s where I lived, yes,” she said, adding that she was not aware of Johnny Depp’s job at the same time. The lawyer recalled that her husband was out of town the same evening. The next day, the famous actress filed for divorce from Johnny Depp. As a reminder, the former lovebirds had met on the set of the 2011 film The Rum Diary, before getting married in 2015.
