This is undoubtedly the most publicized trial of the start of 2022. On Friday May 27, 2022, after six weeks of very heated debates, the representatives of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard gave their last speech. Regarding the comedian’s lawyer, Camille Vasquez, she did not hesitate to describe Amber Heard as an “aggressor” and a “deeply troubled person who desperately needs attention”. For his part, Ben Rottenborn, the actress’s lawyer, read texts written by the actor in which he said that he wanted to “burn” his ex-wife, reported the Mirror, the same day.
In detail, for Johnny Depp’s lawyer, her client suffered “persistent verbal, physical and emotional abuse” when they were in a relationship. The rep went on to assure that she had inflicted on him “the greatest and cruelest wound of all” by naming him “falsely” for being a violent man. She then released audios in which Amber Heard could be heard apologizing for hitting Johnny Depp. “I’m sorry I hit you…I just reacted in response to my foot.”
Amber Heard’s attorney says his client isn’t perfect
Amber Heard’s lawyer wanted to denounce the behavior of Johnny Depp’s defense. “If you don’t take pictures, it didn’t happen. If you took pictures, they’re fake. If you didn’t tell your friends, you’re lying. And if you did to your friends, they are part of the hoax. If you did not seek medical attention, you were not injured. If you sought medical attention, you are crazy”, he thus launched before to ensure that in the world of Johnny Depp we could not leave him. If he assured that his client was not perfect, he made it clear that no one was and that it was not a condition for winning the trial.
