Jurors in the trial looked at a handful of testimonies on Wednesday, including some that were recorded.

Depp is suing Heard for $50 million, alleging he was defamed after Heard wrote an op-ed in the newspaper. Washington Post in 2018 in which she described herself as a survivor of domestic violence.

Depp is not specifically mentioned in the article, but his lawyers say the accusation cost him movie roles, money and his reputation.

Wednesday’s witnesses included Raquel Pennington, a friend of Heard’s at the time of her relationship with Depp; Pennington’s former partner, Josh Drew; Whitney Henrique, Heard’s sister; Elizabeth Marz, a former Heard acquittal; Melanie Inglessis, Heard’s former makeup artist; and Kristina Sexton, Heard’s former acting coach.

Makeup artist Melanie Inglessis got emotional during her video testimonial when she was asked to remember the days leading up to Heard’s divorce.

‘Sadness, anger, anger’

Asked to explain Heard’s behavior around this time, Inglessis said, “Various emotions, sure, from sadness, to not wanting a divorce, to anger, to anger, to being really upset, very sad,” she said.

“So it was just a rollercoaster of emotions.

“We were all there for those few days to help her navigate and get through it.”

Later, Inglessis started to cry and buried her face in her T-shirt.

“You still feel very emotional about this?” she was asked.

“It’s very hard for you, isn’t it?”

“It’s not hard for me, no, not now,” replied Inglessis.

“But it just reminds me of how I was feeling at the time.”

Previously, Inglessis testified that: she had covered injuries on Heard’s face before an appearance in December 2015 on The late late show with James Corden.

She confirmed that she saw injuries to Heard’s face when working with her on December 16, 2015, consistent with photos of the time submitted as evidence.

In a 2021 video recording, Inglessis said she saw bruises around Heard’s nose and eyes that looked like someone had headbutted her, as well as a bloody lip.

“We covered the discoloration, the bruising, with a slightly heavier concealer,” Inglessis said.

She added that she used a concealer with a more peachy undertone because “peach lifts blue.”

“Although Amber always has a red lip…I clearly remember talking, we had no option that night but to use a really red lipstick to make sure we could cover up the injuries on the lip,” Inglessis said.

Heard had two waves of emotion on the night of the James Corden TV appearance, Inglessis described.

One was sad, angry and erratic, but then she was able to “turn it on” to do her performance on the show, Inglessis said.

When questioned by Depp’s lawyers, Inglessis confirmed that she had not witnessed Depp being violent towards Heard.

The trial is expected to last until next week, with closing arguments on May 27.
