Amber Heard spoke in court on Monday about how she used a cosmetics kit to conceal marks left on her body as a result of Johnny Depp‘s attacks.
“When I leave the home in LA, I usually get snapped by photographers,” Heard said. “No lady likes to show off a bruise on her cheek.”
She explained how she used various colors depending on the severity of the bruises, starting with green powder to conceal red markings and then moving on to red or orange tones as the bruises progressed to purple.
Heard said, “The objective is to counterbalance whatever color you’re working with on the bruise.” The usage of a makeup kit by Heard has sparked conspiracy ideas among Depp’s legal defenders, encouraged by the cosmetics business Milani.
Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft held up a makeup kit during opening arguments in April, telling jurors they’d hear about how Heard “had to mix the different colors for the different days of the bruises as they developed in the different coloring and how she would use to touch those up to be able to cover those.”
Heard was called to testify.
Milani cosmetics produced a TikTok video that quickly went viral, ostensibly refuting Bredehoft’s assertion. The Milani Conceal + Perfect All-in-One Correcting Kit she presented to the jury was released in 2017, a year after Heard filed for divorce from Depp.
On Monday, Heard testified on the hypothesis. Bredehoft, who gave her the cosmetics kit, pressed her on if it was “the precise one” she used during her connection with Depp.
Heard said, “This is what I’m talking about, a color-correcting kit.” “Obviously, this is not the same one I used to carry. However, I used to have it with me at all times.”
In 2019, Depp filed a lawsuit against Heard, saying that she defamed him in a Washington Post op-ed in which she characterized herself as a victim of domestic abuse. Heard, according to Depp, was the genuine villain in the relationship, attacking him verbally and physically on several occasions.
Depp assaults her physically.
Heard has rejected the claims and filed a counterclaim, detailing more than a dozen incidents of Depp physically assaulting her while under the influence of narcotics and alcohol in court records and evidence in Fairfax County, Virginia.
Heard developed a bruise-handling regimen as a result of Depp’s abuse, she added, starting with using ice to minimize swelling and concluding with utilizing her “bruise kit.”
“If you ice it, you can control it. Arnica cream is also a fantastic treatment “Heard remarked this in reference to a pain reliever. “Then, if you want to hide a bruise, you apply foundation first, then concealer. Then I apply a color correcting product on top of it.”
Employees of Depp testified previously in the trial that they had never seen Heard with injuries and that she wore very little makeup. Heard said that such individuals were just incorrect. “They just have no idea what they’re talking about,” she said. “I always put make-up on.”
An accusation of poop.
Heard also refuted Depp’s claim that she left human feces in the couple’s bed following a disagreement during her testimony on Monday. The couple’s miniature Yorkshire terrier fouled up the bed, according to Heard, and it had a history of gastrointestinal issues after accidentally ingesting Depp’s marijuana.
She answered, “Absolutely not,” in response to the purported feces joke. “That’s not humorous to me.” What a mature lady does, I don’t know. “I wasn’t in the mood to play tricks.”
Depp, on the other hand, got fascinated with the thought that someone had pooped in his bed, according to rumors. Even though Depp’s mother had recently died and the pair hadn’t talked in a month, she claims that was all he wanted to speak about during their last battle on May 21, 2016. The feces claim is one of numerous that Depp’s internet admirers have seized on in their criticism of Heard on social media.
Johnny Depp, she claims, is to blame.
Heard also discussed the op-ed article itself, claiming that the initial copy was written by workers from the American Civil Liberties Union, for whom she had just begun working as an ambassador. She said that she was delighted to contribute to the conversation on domestic abuse and that she was not referring to Depp.
She clarified, “It’s not about Johnny.” “Johnny was the only one who believed it was about him.” It was all about me and my post-Johnny existence.” Heard ended her statement by calling the everyday claims that she is lying about the assault from Depp fans “torture.” She said, “I want to go on with my life.” “I’d want Johnny to go on with his life.” “Leave me alone,” I say.
