mber Heard has said the libel suit brought by her ex-husband Johnny Depp is “the most painful and difficult thing I’ve ever gone through”. The actress has taken the stand on Wednesday at the beginning her testimony in the case being heard in Virginia.
Asked how she felt about the case, she told the court: “I struggle to have the words… to find the words to describe how painful this is.
“This is horrible for me. To sit here for weeks and relive everything… hear people that I knew – some well, some not – my ex-husband, speak about our lives in the way that they have.”
She said it was “the most painful and difficult thing I’ve ever gone through”.
Aquaman star Heard’s lawyers asked the judge to dismiss the case on Tuesday claiming that Depp, 56, had failed to make his case as a matter of law and that no reasonable jury could come to a decision in his favour.
The judge, Penney Azcarate, said the londonbusinessblog for dismissing the case, however, is exceedingly high and should proceed.
Depp’s attorneys rested their case after arguing that Heard, 35, libelled the Pirates of the Caribbean star when she claimed she was a victim of domestic abuse.
Heard’s side began their response by calling to the stand a psychologist who said the actress suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder due to physical and sexual abuse by Depp.
Depp is suing Heard, for $50 million at Fairfax County Circuit Court after the Aquman star wrote a December 2018 op-ed piece in The Washington Post describing herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”
His ex-wife is countersuing him for $100 million over Depp’s claims that she is lying.
The trial continues.
