Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's testimony in 'wife beater' libel trial

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's testimony in 'wife beater' libel trial”

On Thursday, Ms Henriquez denied Ms Heard had ever hit her, or that she was "frightened" of her sister.

She also said that her sister had punched Mr Depp on that occasion but only to defend her, because she believed Mr Depp was going to push her down the stairs.

Ms Sexton said that at one point, Ms Heard was on billboards as the face of a Guess campaign, alleging Ms Heard had told her Mr Depp had said she (Ms Heard) "shouldn't be doing stuff like that anymore because it made her look like a "cheap whore".

"The reliability of Ms Whitney is critical", he added.

The actor's barrister, David Sherborne, said his team received the video from "an anonymous source", after Ms Henriquez said in court that her sister had never attacked her.

In the witness box Ms Henriquez denied there had been any physical fight with her sister and said the people in the video were simply "trying to infer a narrative that wasn't there" in order to make a "poor" reality TV show more interesting.

The undated video showed Amber's sister Whitney chatting with a group of women by a sunny pool. Heard's sister detailed her story of Depp's abuse of Amber.

In her testimony on Thursday (local time), Ms Henriquez said Mr Depp hit Ms Heard "multiple times" during an alleged incident at the couple's Los Angeles apartment in March 2015. She has claimed that she often feared for her life during their tempestuous relationship.

The libel case, which is due to finish next week, centres on an article published on the Sun's website in April 2018 under the headline "Gone Potty: How can JK Rowling be "genuinely happy" casting wife beater Johnny Depp in the new Fantastic Beasts film?".

In four days of testimony this week, Ms Heard, 34, accused Mr Depp of an array of acts of violence, including throwing bottles at her "like grenades", headbutting her and even of stubbing out a cigarette on his cheek.

The Sun's lawyers told the court they would show the allegation in the article was true and that Depp had beaten ex-wife Amber Heard during violent rages brought on by alcohol or drugs.

Eleanor Laws QC said, "They were being taken for Ms Heard to negotiate a settlement with Mr Depp weren't they? I would ask her about it and she didn't have an excuse for it, which was a red flag for me, knowing other women who have been in domestic violence situations". "Please stop this. I know this isn't your heart".

Ms Heard said in written evidence that at various times during her and Mr Depp's relationship she endured "punching, slapping, kicking, head-butting and choking".

But she said she had witnessed the aftermath of a jealous rage in which he had allegedly attacked Ms Heard during a weekend stay at the Hicksville theme trailer park in California, in June 2013.

He also insisted that he only started dating Heard after she split from Depp, suggesting that the pair should "bury the hatchet and move on". Ms Pennington said: "There was damage when I arrived, I believe they would have seen damage".

"Johnny went outside to talk to security".
