In the courthouse in Fairfaix, Virginia, Amber said that her ex-husband in 2015 has it “Almost killed”, during the honeymoon on the Orient Expressprecisely because she had learned that she had been offered a role in a film with Franco (the two shot the thriller together The Adderall Diaries): “He wrapped his hands around my neck against the wall of the carriage for a long time, I thought it could kill me “.

Johnny’s lawyers argue that the night before she filed for divorce, Amber invited Franco to her house. Just 24 hours after an altercation between her spouses which – according to her – had caused her a black eye. To prove this, Depp’s lawyers played a video recorded by a security camera in the courtroom on the evening of May 22, 2016. In the video Amber and James Franco are seen together in the elevator at the former Heard-Depp couple’s Los Angeles penthouse: at one point he rests his head on her shoulder, and she seems to do the same. Then they get out of the elevator together. Heard in front of the jury confirmed that the man in the video was James Franco. And she admitted that she invited him to her house. The next day, May 23, 2016, she filed for divorce from Depp.

Amber said in the courtroom that she and Franco, who lived in the same building at the time, were simply “friends»:« He lived in the apartment next to mine, and at that moment I really needed friendship ». But Depp, the actress continued, “He accused me of having a secret relationship with him. She hated, hated James Franco“. The video shown in the courtroom, however, according to Depp’s defense would serve to plead the $ 50 million libel suit to the detriment of the star of Aquaman. Depp is suing his ex-wife, asking 50 million dollars of damages, for an editorial on Washington Post in which she accused her, without ever quoting him directly, of domestic abuse. The trial, which began on April 12, is continuing. And however it turns out, for sure it will be remembered as one of the bloodiest in Hollywood.
