Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial live updates: Heard’s cross-examination continues

Heard cross-examination continues with questions about Australia

Johnny Depp’s attorney, Camille Vasquez, continued her cross-examination of Amber Heard on Tuesday, beginning by bringing out a knife Heard gave Depp and questioning her testimony about the couple’s 2015 Australia fight.

Vasquez question Heard’s account of when her allegations of abuse by Depp began, noting that Heard initially said 2013 but then said she recalled some incidents in 2012.

“He was hitting me in 2012,” Heard said. “He just took a break in the middle.”

Then Heard was asked about a knife she gifted Depp in 2012, with Vasquez asking the court to bring out the knife to show the jury.

“That’s the knife you gave to the man who was hitting you, right?” Vasquez asked Heard.

Depp’s attorney then moved on to question Heard about the couple’s argument in 2015 while in Australia.

Depp testified that Heard instigated an argument that resulted in her throwing a vodka bottle at him, resulting in glass severing the tip of his fingers. Heard testified that Depp went into a rage while under the influence of drugs and alcohol, attacking furniture and believes his severed finger while smashing a wall-mounted phone.

Vasquez pushed Heard as to the sequence of events in her testimony, which includes Depp assaulting her with a bottle, but Heard insisted she has never testified to a sequence of events.

“Just to be clear, you’re putting in order…I have never claimed that I can remember the exact sequence,” Heard said. “This was a multi-day assault that took place over three horrible days.”
