Amber Heard VS Johnny Depp: this highly anticipated witness who should not help the actor’s business

Amber Heard VS Johnny Depp: this highly anticipated witness who should not help the actor's business

After a week’s break, the trial of Amber Heard and Johnny Depp resumes this Monday, May 16. At the bar, two witnesses in favor of the actress are eagerly awaited.

The next few days are likely to be decisive for Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. Back in court for several weeks, the ex-spouses who accuse each other of defamation have already testified in court. The two actors were questioned at length about their past relationship and the accusations of domestic violence they made. Represented by Camille Vasquez, a formidable lawyer at the heart of romance rumors, Johnny Depp will soon face two key witnesses according to People. In a few days, in fact, two women will come to testify in favor of Amber Heard in this media trial: the actress Ellen Barkin and the sister of the actress, Whitney Henriquez. If the first will be present by videoconference, the second will be called to the bar to defend her sister.

And the testimony of Ellen Barkin and Whitney Henriquez could well thwart the plans of Johnny Depp’s lawyers. Indeed, the two women had already spoken during the defamation lawsuit he had brought against the Sun few months ago. The arrival of the sister of Amber Heard in particular risks being a highlight of this new legal confrontation. On May 5, the actress had also mentioned it by ensuring that she had been present during a fight about to degenerate. According to her, her sister was near a staircase “in the line of fire trying to get Johnny arrested”. “Whitney was with his back to the stairs, and Johnny jumped on himshe assured the court. I don’t hesitate, I don’t wait. And I kicked him. In my entire relationship thus far with Johnny, I hadn’t dealt a blow. And for the first time, I hit him.”

Johnny Depp: this ex-girlfriend who will testify against him

As for Ellen Barkin, she had a brief romance with Johnny Depp in the late 1990s during the filming of Las Vegas Paranoid. “Her hearing will be essential, as Amber Heard needs independent witnesses to corroborate her story”explains Neama Rahmani, a former federal prosecutor interviewed by the site Daily Beast. In England during a first trial, she had declared that he had already thrown a bottle of wine in front of her eyes. At the time, the star of Pirates of the Caribbean called this accusation “fake”. According to him, Ellen Barkin resented him. “I don’t have an anger management problem”, assured Johnny Depp. After a week’s hiatus, the trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard will resume on Monday, May 16 in Fairfax. Like these two new witnesses, the ex-spouses will be heard again by the jury.
