Amber Heard’s sister Whitney Henriquez has testified in court. It describes a heated argument between Heard and Johnny Depp.
Whitney Henriquez testified in the trial between Johnny Depp (58) and her sister Amber Heard (36). She describes in court, among other things, an incident that is said to have occurred in 2015. Henriquez witnessed Depp allegedly become violent.
What is said to have happened between Depp, Heard and Henriquez
Depp and Heard insulted each other at the time. At one point the dispute escalated. Henriquez was at the top of a flight of stairs with her sister. The actor ran up the steps, hit her and caught her in the back.
Heard then yelled at Depp not to hit her sister – and in return hit the actor with a punch. Before a bodyguard could intervene, the 58-year-old allegedly grabbed Heard’s hair with one hand. With the other, he repeatedly hit the actress in the face, as Henriquez says.
Depp testified back in April, claiming that Heard instead tried to hit him in the incident. Henriquez allegedly intervened at the time and tried to stop her sister. However, Heard punched around her and hit the actor in the face.
The Depp v. Heard trial
Johnny Depp has sued Amber Heard for $50 million over an article she published in the Washington Post in 2018. In it, she claimed to be a victim of domestic violence. She did not mention her ex-husband by name. Depp claims the post nonetheless ruined his career, damaged his reputation and cost him a lot of money as a result. Heard has filed a $100 million counterclaim against her ex.
The couple got married in 2015. The two separated in 2016 and divorced in 2017. Both parties have repeatedly accused each other of domestic violence. The actor lost a defamation lawsuit against the newspaper “The Sun” in Great Britain in 2020. The newspaper had described Depp in an article as a “wife beater”. Depp has denied all allegations of domestic violence.
