The name of the actress Amber Heard does not stop ringing in the midst of the scandal and controversy, since 2016, the problems triggered with her ex-partner Johnny Depp have not stopped, although, according to the evidence, background and testimonies, the torment of their relationship would have started long before the split.
Last Thursday, April 14, the lawyers presented a video testimonial statement from Lauren Anderson, who was Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s couples therapist, noting that they were both involved in “mutual abuse”, as both suffered child abuse. To this is added the testimony of a former employee of the actress, with serious accusations against her.

The former personal assistant to the ‘Aquaman’ actress said she never saw her suffer any physical abuse at the hands of her then-husband, the leading actor in the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ saga, but said Heard once spat on her face when he asked for a higher salary.
Heard would descend screaming in blind rage, send rambling text messages at 4 a.m. and was often drunk and high on illegal substances, Kate James testified in a video statement shown in court Thursday, April 14, during her trial for Depp’s libel lawsuit against Heard.
Depp, on the other hand, was very quiet, almost shy, “like a complete southern gentleman,” James said.
The ‘Fantastic Beasts’ actor accused Heard of indirectly defaming him in a 2018 op-ed he wrote for The Washington Post. Heard refers to herself in the article as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” The piece does not name Depp. But her lawyers argue that it clearly refers to a restraining order Heard filed for in May 2016, just after Depp told her she wanted a divorce.

Depp denies abusing Heard, but Heard’s lawyers say the evidence will show that he did. The actor’s denials, they argue, lack credibility because he frequently drank and used drugs to the point of passing out and not remembering anything he did.
Testimony points out that Amber Heard abused her family with “blind rage”
James’ video testimony offered a reverse view: Depp was the peaceful one, he said, while Heard was frequently intoxicated and verbally abusive, including with her own mother and sister.
His poor sister was treated like a dog you kicked, basically,” James said.
James, who worked for Heard from 2012 to 2015, said he was paid “very poorly.” She said she was hired at a starting wage of $25 an hour and that her duties ranged from picking up Heard’s dry cleaners to speaking with the actress’s Hollywood agents.
He added that he was tasked with collecting two copies of any magazines he presented to Heard and keeping them in the garage to prevent Depp from seeing them. The artist went into a “blind rage” when James didn’t put the magazines in the garage, James said.
The actress called her employee crying to complain
Regarding Heard and Depp’s time together, James said Heard was a “very dramatic person” who was deeply insecure in the relationship. She even pointed out that she often called James to cry and complain about Depp, she said.
“I remember one time she called me when I was alone in New York City, and I was crying and walking the streets,” James said. He noted that she told Heard to come in:
I was worried that the paparazzi might take a picture of her.”
Part of the statement focused on a text message Depp had sent to James after he and Heard broke up. Depp’s text message read: “Come for a purple stain and we’ll fix your saggy butt real good.”
A lawyer asked if “purple stain” meant wine and if “she” meant Heard. James said he didn’t want to speculate. “That’s how she writes,” James said of Depp. “It’s very random and you don’t question it. … he writes in a very abstract way.” With information from AP.
