Amber Heard gave a statement at the Royal Courts of Justice, the Strand on Tuesday (July 28) at the conclusion of her ex husband Johnny Depp‘s case against a UK tabloid for calling him a “wife beater” in London, England.
Throughout the trial, both Amber and Johnny have been at odds and both are denying abuse allegations against one another.
On the steps of the courthouse, Amber read the following statement, “I traveled to the UK to testify in these proceedings as a witness to assist the Court.”
“After obtaining a restraining order in 2016 and finalizing our divorce, I wanted to move on with my life. I did not file this lawsuit and, despite its significance, I would have preferred not to be in court,” she continued. “It has been incredibly painful to relive the break-up of my relationship, have my motives and my truth questioned, and the most traumatic details of my life with Johnny shared in court and broadcast around the world.”
“I stand by my testimony in court and I now place my faith in British justice. Although I did not bring this lawsuit, I am aware of the precious resources being consumed by his litigation and will be glad to see those resources re-directed back to more important legal matters already delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic,” she continued. “I appreciate the dedication, hard work and support of the defense legal team, as well as my UK and US lawyers.”
Amber added, “I also wish to extend my thanks to the very kind and diligent court staff and the police, who have been so sensitive in ensuring my protection so that that I could testify in safety. And finally, my heartfelt thanks for the tremendous outpouring of support and the many messages I have received from around the world. You have given me so much strength and I send it back to you.”
