“My Interest Is in Clearing My Name”: Amber Heard’s Cross-Examination Covers Abuse Allegations, ACLU Pledge, and Elon Musk

Camille Vasquez, one of Johnny DeppThe lawyer’s, has begun cross-examination Amber Heard in Monday. The attorney tried to discredit Heard on several points, notably Heard’s pledge to donate $7 million to charity and her various allegations of abusing Depp. At the time of this trial, Heard had only raised part of the settlement, she always maintained her intention to complete her donation but she could not because Depp sued her for $50 million.

Vasquez also guides Heard through cases of alleged violence for which Heard’s team provided photographic evidence of trauma. To counter those claims, Vasquez showed the judges a series of public photos as well as an appearance on a late-night show. In them, there is no obvious evidence of bruises or split skin (Heard previously said she could cover any wound with makeup). Vasquez questioned her for not seeking medical treatment after being accused of abuse, including after being sexually assaulted with a bottle.

On Monday, Vasquez began with a provocation, telling Heard, “Mr. Depp didn’t look at you once during this test, did he? ”

“Not that I noticed, no,” Heard replied.

“You’ve looked at him many times, haven’t you?” Vasquez said.

“Yes, I have,” Heard said.

“You know exactly why Mr. Depp won’t look back at you, don’t you?” Vasquez asked. “He promised you he would never see his eyes again, is that true?” She added, with the sequel, “He kept that promise, didn’t he?”

“As far as I know, he can’t look at me,” Heard said.

“He won’t look at you, will he, Miss Hear?” Vasquez said.

“He cannot,“Heard.

The passage between counsel and witness reflects Depp’s own confrontation in cross-examination, as he answers Ben Rottenbornquestion of. The But the pirate of the Caribbean The actors and Heard often go against their respective judges, trying to get more of the word “yes” or “no”, which is often asked of those in the stands.

At one point, the conversation turned to their $7 million divorce settlement. In 2016, Heard released a statement saying she plans to donate the settlement to two charities, the American Civil Liberties Union and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. But in a court hearing last month, Terence Dougherty, The ACLU’s CEO and general counsel explains that Heard has donated less than half of what she pledged—that is, $1.3 million out of a total of $3.5 million. Dougherty said the organization contacted her and learned that she was experiencing financial difficulties.

Heard and Vasquez volleyed in this series of events:

“You want Mr. Depp’s money,” Vasquez said.

“Don’t understand, don’t care about it,” Heard said. “I love Johnny, that’s why I’m with him.”

Vazquez shot back, “You want praise for raising money, don’t you?”

“That’s not accurate,” Heard said.

“You want good press,” Vasquez said.

“Generally speaking, everyone wants good journalism,” says Heard.

“You want to be openly selfless,” says Vasquez.

“That’s not my preference,” Heard said. “My concern was my name, delete my name and at the time I was called a liar and my motives were being questioned. I’ve found it important to clear that up. I want to make a statement to make sure that there is no doubt that I cannot be attributed to these things just because Johnny is a bigger star and more accessible to the public. ”

“You want to remind people of your statements about domestic violence against Mr. Depp,” Vazquez said.

“No, I want to get on with my life,” Heard said.

“You want to make those claims sound credible,” says Vasquez.

“They are trustworthy,” says Heard.

“You want to be seen as a noble victim of domestic violence,” says Vazquez

“I have never, never wanted to be seen as a victim,” Heard said forcefully. “I’ve never called myself anyone either.”

Heard reiterated that she still plans to donate the full amount, but cannot because she has been sued, when Elon MuskThe name of has appeared. Musk was her boyfriend shortly after her relationship with Depp ended. She acknowledged that he made payments on her behalf, totaling $500,000, but that donations from who would be Twitter owners “didn’t count toward my pledge.”

She explained that she met Musk at the 2016 Met Gala the week before filing for divorce. “I do not recognize [Musk] until we started talking [at the gala] and he reminded me we had met once before,” she said. Heard was at the gala without Depp after the end of the marriage fight at her 30th birthday dinner in April 2016.
