After interventions by Jason Momoa and Kate Moss on trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard being held at the Fairfax County Circuit Court in Fairfax, Virginia, United States, the controversy continues. A few hours ago, the Texan took the stand again to testify about the problems that were triggered in her life as a result of an alleged smear campaign against him.
Amber Heard broke down in tears in front of the jury on the morning of this Thursday, May 26, declaring that both her personal life and her professional projects are being affected by the lawsuit that her ex-husband filed against her for defamation. When his legal representative approached him to ask how he has spent the last few days since Johnny Depp testified, he replied: “I am harassed, humiliated and threatened every day”.
The 36-year-old interpreter explained that she also receives this type of action from the people who are inside the room, since she considers that she is also singled out during her stay in court: “Sitting here in front of the world, seeing the worst parts of my life used to humiliate me. People want to kill me and they tell me every day”, he continued.
But that was not all, Amber Heard mentioned that the threats and criticism have already escalated to a point where her family is also at risk, especially Oonagh Paigeher little daughter who is only one year old: “People want to put my baby in the microwave, they tell me that”.
The actress took advantage of her space in front of the judge to recall the alleged threat she received from the protagonist of Pirates of the Caribbean when they parted:He promised me that if I ever left him, he would make me think of him every day of my life.” and showed his dissatisfaction with the attitude that his former partner has taken during the trial, because on occasions he has been seen smiling while trying to cover himself with his hands.
“I will not sit in this courtroom laughing and making sarcastic jokes. This is horrible, painful and humiliating for any human being. Maybe it’s easy to forget that, I’m a human being […] I do not deserve this. The attacks against me, the campaign that Johnny has caused millions of people to do in his name, torture me,” he added.
In general, he mentioned that the wave of criticism and threats he has received in recent weeks is causing him trauma and constant fear. She explained that she has suffered from panic attacks while she sleeps and, derived from this difficult situation, she has tried to find ways to help her fall asleep.
“My hands shake, I wake up screaming… my friends have to live with a set of unspoken rules about how not to scare me, how not to touch me, how not to surprise me. Intimate partners have rules about how they can touch me. I have rules about the medical professionals…gynecologists I see, so I don’t have a panic attack or trigger event,” she added.
The Texan interpreter even said that during the filming of Aquaman 2 She had trouble continuing because she collapsed when she remembered all the effects on her image and asked to definitively end any topic that related her to Jhonny Depp.
“People make fun of my testimony about being assaulted. Making fun of… it’s been agonizing, painful and humiliating that I’ve been through. I hope no one has to go through something like this. […] I wouldn’t wish this situation on my worst enemy.”, he expressed.
