Amber Heard Breaks Her Silence On 'Wife-Beater' Trial -- I 'Place My Faith In British Justice'

By Mike Walters

Amber Heard has broken her silence about the ongoing defamation trial and issues surrounding the alleged violence in her marriage to Johnny Depp -- saying she now puts her faith in 'British justice.'

The 'Aquaman' star posted a lengthy statement on Instagram, after the conclusion of a three-week trial where she testified that the 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' star was a drug-fueled abuser during their relationship.

As for Depp, he claimed Amber is a 'compulsive liar' who concocted the 'hoax' as an insurance policy during the relationship and who is actually the abusive one in their marriage.

"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 began.
