Amber Heard’s red face was shown in Johnny Depp’s libel trial today after she claimed he “hurled a phone” at her.
Heard alleges that on May 21, 2016, Depp, 57, threw the phone and smashed objects during a row at the penthouse, which he denies.
A picture of what Heard, 34, alleges is her injury from the attack was shown at the High Court as the second week of Depp’s trial against NGN Group concluded.
Depp is suing NGN over an article that appeared in The Sun in 2018 in which he was branded a “wife beater”, which he strenuously denies.
Depp’s lifelong friend Isaac Baruch called the photographs “phoney baloney”.
Baurch said there were no signs of any marks, scratches, swelling or bruises on Heard’s face after the alleged incident.
He said: “In all the years I’ve known Mr Depp, I have never once seen him commit an act of violence.”
Baurch said in his witness statement: “She told me that he hit her in the face and threw a phone at her.
“I then asked her where he had hit her and she stretched her neck and pushed out the right side of her head for me to look at her right eye.
“Her face looked to me just as natural and normal.”
Depp’s security guard Travis McGivern gave his testimony in court today and claimed he witnessed Heard throw a can of Red Bull at the star’s back, punch him and spit at him during a blazing row.
Lawyers for NGN are defending their case based on Heard’s 14 allegations of abuse, which include claims of bust-ups between 2013 and 2016.
The actor has argued his ex-wife was abusive towards him during the marriage, which she denies.
The case continues.
