Following Amber Heard’s dramatic sexual assault testimony in court, the actress’s legal representatives issued remarks.
While Depp’s lawyer called Heard’s declaration her “greatest performance,” Amber Heard’s spokesperson slammed Depp for not being able to look his ex-wife in the eyes during court proceedings in Virginia.

“It’s no surprise that Mr. Depp has the bravery or fortitude to even look at Ms. Heard throughout the proceedings — as he couldn’t in the UK trial — and instead doodles and snickers.”
The spokesperson says, “Mr. Depp’s behaviour in this trial has been as pathetic as it was in their marriage.” “They appear to believe they need to double down on their clearly losing two-part strategy: the distraction
