As her defamation trial resumed on May 16th, Amber Heard continues to give evidence to prove her innocence in the courtroom in Fairfax, Virginia. The Aquaman star has yet again broken down in tears, insisting she doesn’t want anything from her ex-husband Johnny Depp and reiterates twice that he shouldn’t call her a LIAR.
The Aquaman star uttered the latter as she responded to an audio recording, played in the court, of an argument between her and Depp.
“I don’t want to call myself a victim. I don’t like to think of myself as a victim, and I don’t want him to think I’m attacking him or blaming him. I’m pointing out I didn’t cooperate with the police, that I didn’t want to get him in trouble. That I didn’t want to hurt him,” the 36-Year-Old said.
Depp is suing Heard for $50million, and she has issued a counterclaim for $100million.
The pair started dating after meeting on the set of the 2011 film The Rum Diary and tied the knot in 2015. Heard obtained a restraining order against Depp the following year, and they officially finalized their divorce in 2017. In 2020, Depp had lost a libel case against The Sun over an article in which he was labeled a wife beater. He has since then been denying every allegation of abuse.
However, Heard continued her statement in court, saying: “I just want anything from him – just don’t call me a liar. It’s all I said. Just don’t call me a liar. Just don’t say this isn’t real, because I’m the walking proof of it.”
When asked about her decision to file for divorce in May 2016, Heard told the court: “I knew if I didn’t l’d likely not literally survive. I was so scared that it was going to end badly for me and I really didn’t want to leave him, I loved him so much. I would have done anything but I couldn’t do that one thing, I couldn’t stay. The promise and the hope I had become less and less regular and more and more rare.”

She concluded: “The monster was now the thing that was normal and not the exception. The violence was now normal and not the exception. It was so hard, but I knew I had to do it. What if he had taken it too far, I wouldn’t be here.”
