Amber Heard revealed a claimed attack by Johnny Depp that left her with a bleeding lip, which her lawyers sought to show with a photo, but the judge dismissed it since it wasn’t delivered in time for trial… However, TMZ has the photo… Depp’s press team said the photo doesn’t match the timing of her allegations.
In her testimony,
Heard alleged… “I was in one of these fights, I believe it’s this one, in his downtown ECB, we call it, loft, and we’re in the kitchen living room area and he backhands me,” Johnny said of the incident.
“And, you know, it was, you know, he wears a lot of rings,” she said. I recall feeling like my lip had gone into my teeth, and there was some blood on the wall. It’s as simple as that, a little blood on the wall.”
We have the photo Heard claims she took after the alleged assault, which shows what appears to be a cut on her lip and a note that reads, “I shall return xxx”... She claims Depp left her a note.
The photo is the identical one Heard’s legal team sought to present the jury, but Depp’s side opposed, claiming Amber’s lawyers never submitted it during the case’s discovery phase. The judge agreed with Depp’s lawyers, and the photo was never used in court.
Depp’s staff has now told TMZ…
TMZ has examined the metadata and can confirm that the photo was taken in 2012, but Amber’s witness statement in the UK defamation lawsuit stated that the first violent incident occurred in 2013, a year after the purported bloody lip shot was taken.
Amber messed up her dates in the UK case, according to a source close to her, and when she retrieved her therapist records, it revealed that the alleged abuse from Johnny began in early 2012... As a result, the photo’s timing makes sense.
Of course, the photo and alleged event are only one of several allegations of physical aggression brought against Heard and Depp throughout the trial.
Remember, Johnny’s team said that Amber’s claims had developed over time with “new and convenient elements” — and that she had been “preparing to produce the performance of her life in this trial.”
The case has been put on hold until May 16, when Amber is due to return to the witness stand.
