The Johnny Depp – Amber Heard court battle is getting murkier by the day, and now a makeup brand has stepped in, calling out Amber Heard on a lie. The brand in question, Milani Cosmetics took to TikTok to tell all that a certain statement made by Amber Heard’s lawyer, is in fact, fake.
The continuing legal drama has seen both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard take a few hits and this is yet another dent in Heard’s case. Here’s how it went down…
A Marriage Made In Hell?
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s romance went south rather quickly and the legal drama going on shows just how a relationship can unravel and turn into a mud-slinging fest. After meeting in 2009 on the set of the movie “The Rum Diary”, Depp and Heard hooked up only after he broke up with long-time partner Vanessa Paradis. In 2014, the couple got engaged followed by a private wedding in 2015.
15 months later Amber Heard headed to divorce court and settled on a $7 million out-of-court settlement, the proceeds of which Heard allegedly donated to charity.
At the time, the couple released a joint statement, “Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.”
This changed soon after Heard wrote an op-ed piece where she spoke about the treatment of women in domestic abuse cases but did not mention Depp.
Depp sued Heard for $50 million, accusing her of ruining his career and reputation, and Heard in turn, is counter-suing for $100 million. The trial of Depp’s case against Heard began in 2022 and is currently the drama we see.
Meanwhile, in 2020, Depp sued the publisher of The Sun for libel in the UK over a 2018 article that claimed he was violent against Heard but failed in his legal battle.
