Jury sees photos of Amber Heard’s swollen face after last fight with Johnny Depp

Heard said in her Washington time testimony Monday that she did not work with officers responding to the couple’s penthouse, and said her personal interactions with officers were very limited.

She also discussed her makeup routine, using a color correction wheel she called her “bruise kit” to cover up blemishes on her face. She said over the years she learned to use green tones on the first day of a bruise to cover up redness, switching more to orange tones as the bruise turned blue and purple.

“I’m not going to walk around LA with bruises on my face,” she said.

During the cross-examination, Depp attorney Camille Vasquez questioned Heard about multiple photos of her that appeared to show no bruising, even though they were taken within days of alleged abuse incidents. Heard said she used makeup to cover bruises and ice to reduce swelling.

“You should see what it looked like under the makeup,” she said.

Vasquez also questioned Heard about her $7 million ($10 million) divorce settlement from Depp. Heard promised to donate the entire amount to charity, but has only donated part of it so far. She testified that she could not keep her promise yet because Depp sued her for $50 million. But during a cross-examination, she admitted that she had received the entire $7 million from Depp months before he filed the lawsuit.

In her direct testimony, Heard testified that she didn’t want to publicly expose Depp as an abuser in her court proceedings, but had to go to the courthouse to testify to obtain the restraining order, and she was surprised when she left the courthouse surrounded by paparazzi.

“I just wanted to change my locks,” she said of why she went to court to get the restraining order. “I just wanted to get a good night’s sleep.”

During Monday’s testimony, Heard also strongly denied an allegation by Depp that she left human feces in the couple’s bed after an argument. Heard said it was the couple’s teacup Yorkshire terrier that messed up the bed and that they had a history of gut problems since accidentally ingesting Depp’s marijuana.

“Absolutely not,” she said of the alleged poop joke. “I don’t think that’s funny. I don’t know what a grown woman does. I wasn’t in a joke mood.”

However, Heard said that Depp became obsessed with the idea that someone had pooped in his bed. She said this was all he wanted to talk about during that final fight on May 21, 2016, even though Depp’s mother had just passed away and the couple hadn’t spoken in a month.

The allegation of poo is one of several that Depp’s online fans in particular have picked up on in their social media critiques of Heard.

Heard also spoke about the op-ed itself, saying staffers from the American Civil Liberties Union — for whom she had gone to work as an ambassador — wrote the first draft. She said she was eager to lend her voice to the domestic violence debate, and that she had no intention of referencing Depp.

“It’s not about Johnny,” she said. “The only one who thought it was about Johnny was Johnny. It was about me and my life after Johnny.”

Heard concluded her testimony by saying that the accusations she receives daily from Depp supporters that she is lying about the abuse are “torture.”

“I want to move on with my life,” she said. “I want Johnny to move on. I want him to leave me alone.”
