WATCH – Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez grills Amber Heard for ‘lying on the stand’

Published

on

Testimonies in the Depp and Heard defamation trial have come to a dramatic end

Heard was called back to the witness stand on Thursday to testify as a rebuttal witness for her counterclaim against her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.

The cross-examination got heated as Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez questioned Heard for the second time.

The actress is visibly frustrated under cross-examination and turns to the jury to give each answer but stand her ground.

The Aquaman star also denies leaking footage of Depp smashing kitchen cabinets to TMZ.

Appearing vexed, Heard fires back at Depp’s attorney, telling her to look at the metadata on a photo when asked about the date of it.

Depp’s lawyer told Heard that “your lies have been exposed to the world”.

On the stand, Heard got emotional as she testified that Depp “promised” he would ruin the actress and says she receives hundreds of death threats daily.

She told the court not only does she get harassed daily, but is also very upset that she receives threats directed at her baby too.

Heard is firm that she wrote the Washington Post op-ed because Depp is a powerful man, saying that people would come out of the woodwork to support him.

This follows Depp’s rebuttal for his defamation claim on Wednesday.

The actor described the experience of listening to his ex-wife’s testimony in the trial as “insane”.

He flat out denies Heard’s allegations of abuse.

The actress reiterates that she did not fake her abuse allegations.

Heard’s witnesses on Thursday included a forensic expert, and a clinical psychologist who diagnosed Heard with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Both sides rest their cases ahead of closing arguments on Friday, followed by jury deliberations.

Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra won the Eurovision contest in May, capturing the hearts of the world

After taking out the win, that would mean Ukraine would host the competition next year.

But the European Broadcasting Union announced last week it could not be held in Ukraine following Russia’s invasion.

The body behind Eurovision now says it “understands the disappointment” over its decision not to hold next year’s song contest in Ukraine.

The EBU said it was in talks with the BBC to host the contest in the UK.

That’s because British entrant Sam Ryder came second in this year’s contest with his single Spaceman.

The announcement was met with disappointment by Ukrainians but the E-B-U doubled down on its position, saying in a statement that it “fully understands the disappointment that greeted the announcement”.
