Camille Vasquez asks Amber Heard: ‘Also two months after you punched Mr. Depp because you thought he was going to throw your sister down the stairs like he had thrown Kate Moss down the stairs.

Amber Heard answers: ‘He swung at Whitney, and I heard a vague rumor about that.’

Vasquez then reads the contents of the note: ‘True love isn’t just about the madness of passion or having the safety about peace. it’s about having both. That I have seen in you the true bones of friendship and respect. but that I perhaps more than ever want to rip you apart, devour you and savor the taste.’

Heard says: ‘It’s a love note.’

Vasquez asks: ‘You’re Slim, right?’

She then reads another note which includes the lines: ‘I’m sorry I can get crazy, I’m sorry I hurt you, like you I can get wicked when I get provoked.’

The note continued about how Heard felt ‘abandoned’ by Depp following a fight over his daughter Lilly Rose, as well as him not spending a final night with her during a trip.

Camille Vasquez then asks Amber Heard about self-harm.

Heard denies she ever cut herself, and says she only thought about it. Vasquez suggests Heard is lying.

Johnny Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez presented photos of the Aquaman’s actress honeymoon with Depp. 

The 2015 picture shows the Pirates of the Caribbean actor with a bruise under his eye, which Heard said was a fake and claimed she was the only victim of violence during the honeymoon. 

Heard said, ‘I’ve seen this picture before, and he’s not injured in it. This one is photoshopped.’ 

‘This is the only photo from your honeymoon that shows someone injured,’ Vasquez said.

Vasquez also presented love letters from 2015 that Heard sent to Depp pleading for a ‘normal relationship. Vasquez said the letters were Heard’s way of apologizing to Depp for her actions. 

Heard denied it and said the letters were nothing more than love letters. 

Johnny Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez asked why there were no medical records stemming from the alleged 2012 sexual assault, despite Aquaman actress Amber Heard saying she suffered injuries and was bleeding when he allegedly attacked her with a wine bottle.

‘I didn’t seek treatment,’ Heard told the court.

Heard also claims Carly Simon song You’re So Vain lyrics written on mirror in couple’s Australia home was written by Depp.

One message written in black read: ‘She loves naked photos of herself. So modern, so hot.’

Camille Vasquez asks Amber Heard of the 2015 amputation incident in Australia: ‘You weren’t scared of him at all were you?’

Amber Heard answers: ‘I had a mixed relationship with Johnny, sometimes I was scared, sometimes I loved him.’

Camille Vasquez then asks: ‘After that night in Australia, you weren’t scared at all were you?’

Amber Heard answers: ‘This is a man who tried to kill me. Of course it’s scary. He was also my husband.’

Heard claims she knew she was in a toxic relationship with Depp and that she was scared of him and wanted out. 

Vasquez asked: ‘You know the Carly Simon song You’re So Vain. It’s your testimony Mr. Depp was writing messages to himself in the mirror back and forth.

‘Its your testimony he was writing crazy messages to himself?’

Amber Heard answered: ‘That’s what it looked like.’

Johnny Depp’s Attorney, Camille Vasquez, grilled Amber Heard about her claims of sexual assault while he was allegedly high on MDMA. 

Heard claimed Depp had grabbed her and sexually assaulted her with a wine bottle in the middle of three-days of assault from Depp in 2012. 

It was the same year he gave her a knife with the inscription, ‘Hasta la muerte’, or ‘Until Death’ on it.  

Vasquez asked the master deputy of the court to show the knife to Heard and the jury, which he did.

Vasquez said: ‘During these cycles of violence you gave Mr Depp a knife as a gift?

Heard said: ‘I gave him a knife for a birthday present early in our relationship, around 2012’

Vasquez said: ‘That’s the knife you gave to the man who was hitting you’

Heard shot back: I wasn’t worried he was going to stab me with it’.

Vasquez said: ‘But you gave it to him?’

Heard admitted: ‘I gave it to him’.

Amber Heard claims Johnny Depp smashed a ‘phone to smithereens’ and grabbed her by the neck and assaulted her with a bottle. 

Said she never knew the sequence of events as it was a ‘three day assault.’

‘At some point he’s on top of me. No phone. Screaming on top of me’  

Amber Heard agreed with Johnny Depp’s lawyer that their first year of marriage in 2012 was ‘magic’ and that he was sober throughout. Asked by Johnny Depp’s lawyer why she claimed he’d been abusive to her throughout. Johnny Depp’s lawyer asked why Amber Heard bought Johnny Depp a knife for his birthday, and showed it to the court.

Amber Heard said Johnny Depp was hitting her in 2012 and smashing things beside her in a ‘cycle of violence.’ 

Johnny Depp’s lawyer asks Amber Heard: ‘That’s the knife you gave to the man that was hitting to you?’ Amber Heard replied: ‘I didn’t know he was going to stab me.’

Depp’s lawyer said: ‘But you gave it to the man who was hitting you.’
