Her trial is over, but the buzz surrounding Amber Heard and Johnny Depp isn't abating. US media are sharing more and more spicy evidence from the ex-couple, which were rejected at trial. Among other things, the 36-year-old apparently wanted to address Depp's alleged erectile dysfunction.
It can always be more intimate: US media are currently evaluating recently unsealed preliminary hearing documents for the legal dispute between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. Among other things, the journalists come across applications for evidence rejected by the court, some of which are difficult. Latest revelation, including from "Page Six": Heard's legal team wanted to address Johnny Depp's alleged erectile dysfunction in the courtroom.
A list of medications should have been presented as evidence of his suffering. The Heard team's chain of arguments: Depp's medical condition is relevant to the trial, as it could explain why he became violent towards Heard - including sexual violence. Because of his condition, he would have penetrated Heard with a bottle, among other things. In addition, erectile dysfunction is the cause of his profound aggression towards Heard.
According to the documents, the answer from the Depp team was not long in coming. Heard would want to put on a "circus" and deliberately drag out clearly lewd things in public. Heard also claimed in court that Depp raped her multiple times with a bottle in Australia in 2015. The accused, on the other hand, testified that he was not perfect, but that he had never committed sexual assault or physical abuse in his life. It was "outrageous" and "outrageous" stories that Heard would bring up against him.
Excerpts from the court documents had already been published in the past few days. The Daily Beast reported that Judge Penney Azcarate Heard's team had refused to provide a memo from the divorce proceedings against her ex-husband. According to the note, she ignored her lawyers' advice to seek the maximum amount she would have been entitled to after the divorce. The 36-year-old was said to be entitled to half of the $33 million that Depp is said to have received for his role in the fourth "Pirates of the Caribbean" part. However, Heard reportedly declined to make that claim, stating in an email to her attorneys that she "stands by [her] word that this isn't about the money."
According to "Daily Beast", Depp's team also received a damper. Accordingly, the 59-year-old had apparently tried to submit nude photos of Heard as evidence. Apparently, her brief work as an erotic dancer should also be addressed. However, neither was allowed.
In early June, Depp won the defamation lawsuit against Heard after around six weeks of the trial. He sued her for $50 million for a post she published in the Washington Post in 2018. In it, she claimed to be a victim of domestic violence. She did not mention her ex-husband by name. However, Depp explained that the post still ruined his career, damaged his reputation and cost him a lot of money. Heard then filed a $100 million counterclaim against her ex.
The 36-year-old was ordered to pay around $15 million in damages at the trial, but the amount was capped at $10.35 million due to local law. Johnny Depp has to pay her two million dollars. Both sides have appealed the verdict. Heard is said not to have the appropriate funds, but is trying to collect the money. As the celebrity portal "TMZ" reported, she has since sold her house in California's Yucca Valley for $ 1.05 million.
