Reportedly, a court in the United Kingdom amid Johnny Depp’s libel lawsuit against The Sun, heard that Amber Heard once got into a fight with her younger sister, Whitney Henriquez, which led to bruises on Whitney’s body, including her cheek and arms.
Page Six claims the video presented to the court purports to show the 31-year-old, Whitney Henriquez, speaking with another woman by a pool about her visible injuries. The woman asks in the video, “did you get in a fight or something?”
Whitney says in the video that she didn’t want to talk about it anymore. The woman goes on to say she couldn’t believe Amber beat her up. She argued that Whitney could easily take her down if she wanted too.
Reportedly, the video footage was taken from a reality TV series filmed between 2006 and 2007. While it’s unclear why the footage was shown, it’s possible it could’ve been to prove Amber’s history of violence, which Depp has been trying to prove in his court battle with The Sun.
As it was previously reported, Depp has sued the British newspaper for calling him a “wife-beater” in an article from 2018. During her second day of testimony, Henriquez returned to the stand to talk about the allegations against Depp.
The Evening Standard claims Henriquez suggested the footage was from a “really bad reality show.” Whitney went on to say she didn’t have any injuries, they were just trying to make a “very boring conversation more interesting.”
The idea behind the scene was to create a story, however, the narrative simply wasn’t there for a story to exist in the first place, Henriquez argued. David Sherborne, Johnny’s attorney, said to the London High Court on Friday that his team had received the footage from the night before.
Sherborne said they were told Amber had a history of abuse, including assaulting other people. The Aquaman actress has accused Johnny of nearly pushing her sister down the stairs, which Heard reacted to by punching him in the face.
Henriquez says, however, that Depp hit her back. The Sun’s lawyer, Sasha Wass, argued the video footage wasn’t “serious,” and it was merely a “light-hearted exchange.”
