Johnny Depp's Team Calls Amber Heard's Testimony at Defamation Trial 'Performance of Her Life'

Hitting back at the claims, the 'Aquaman' star's representative accuses Johnny's team of 'persecuting' her and slams his 'inability to distinguish fact from fiction.'

AceShowbiz - Johnny Depp's team has accused Amber Heard of delivering "the performance of her life." The "Pirates of the Caribbean" actor, who is suing the he "Aquaman" actress for defamation, claimed she tried to destroy his reputation with her 2018 op-ed about being a survivor of domestic abuse, and while she has filed a countersuit, his legal team have now accused her of presenting "fallacies... as fact."

"As Mr. Depp's counsel correctly predicted in their opening statements last month, Ms. Heard did indeed deliver 'the performance of her life' in her direct examination," a spokesperson for the 58-year-old actor said. "While Ms. Heard's stories have continued to grow new and convenient details, Mr. Depp's recollections have remained exactly the same throughout the six painful years since her first allegations were made."

"His truth, the truth, is the same no matter the environment in which it has been presented," the representative went on to add. "The upcoming cross examination from Mr. Depp's team will be most telling, and will certainly highlight the many fallacies Ms. Heard has now attempted to pass off as fact throughout her convoluted testimony."

A spokesperson for the 36-year-old actress, who returned to the witness stand at Fairfax County Circuit Court on Thursday, May 5 as part of the former couple's legal row and accused her ex-husband of being jealous and abusive, even alleging he sexually assaulted her with a bottle, immediately hit back. Her rep accused Johnny's team of "persecuting" her.

"As evidenced by the statement just released, Mr. Depp's defamation claim is falling apart so rapidly that his counsel are turning from prosecutor to persecutor," the representative said. "They boast that Mr. Depp's story has not changed."

"If so, since he lost the Domestic Violence Restraining Order and he resoundingly lost the libel case in the UK, perhaps he should consider a new strategy rather than the recycled approach of attacking the victim, and refusing to take responsibility for his own conduct," the rep continued. "If Mr. Depp was truly innocent, why has he repeatedly apologized to Ms. Heard and promised to put the 'monster away for good.' "

According to the representative, one of "The Danish Girl" actress' "disappointments" is her ex-husband's "inability to distinguish fact from fiction, a malady which appears to have spread to his legal team."

The spokesperson added, "That same team is so panicked they are fighting tooth and nail to prevent compelling evidence and photos from being introduced. Small wonder Mr. Depp does not have the fortitude or courage to even look at Ms. Heard at all throughout the proceedings, as he could not in the UK trial, and, instead he doodles and snickers."

"Mr. Depp's behavior in this trial has been as pitiful as it was in their marriage. Apparently, they feel they must double-down on their demonstrably losing two-part strategy: distract the jury and demonize the victim."
