A court granted Johnny Depp access to the phone records of his ex-wife, Amber Heard, who had earlier claimed she had two black eyes, a broken nose and a busted lip at Depp’s hands.
Johnny Depp gained access to Amber Heard’s phone records to prove assault was “fake”
Depp plans to use the records to prove that Heard faked the injuries he is alleged to have caused her.
Depp is suing Heard for defamation and claims she manipulated photos to make it look like the Edward Scissorhands actor assaulted her.
Depp’s attorney commented, “Ms. Heard’s attorney has used these fake photographs several times in the deposition.” He also claimed that the LAPD “disavowed the photographs” and “did not describe what they saw.”
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor is suing her over an article Heard wrote for the Washington Post in which she described being a victim of domestic violence, although she never mentioned Depp by name.
Heard has previously claimed that she had two black eyes, a broken nose and a busted lip at the hands of Depp.
The court ruled that Depp’s legal team can have an expert look at the phone to examine whether the photos were fabricated.
In response, Heard’s attorney stated, “Amber Heard remains willing and able to support the authenticity of her evidence, and her IT [information technology] forensic expert has cooperated in this effort. In stark contrast, Mr. Depp has been unable to produce even the audio tapes of which he leaked a partial portion out of context, much less any support for the authenticity of any of his evidence.”
Depp and Heard were married between 2015 and 2017.
