Amber Heard is grilled over alleged attack where Johnny Depp sexually assaulted her with vodka bottle

Amber Heard was grilled in court over the alleged violent attack where she accused Johnny Depp of sexually assaulting her with a liquor bottle.

Intense cross-examination summarized in court on Tuesday morning, with Mr Depp’s attorney questioning Ms Heard about a violent incident that took place in Australia in early 2015.

The former spouses have both given vastly different accounts of the incident.

Ms Heard previously testified that her then-husband assaulted her with a glass liquor bottle and how she lay in fear that the glass may have been broken inside of her.

“The next thing I remember, I was bent over backwards on the bar, meaning my chest was up. I was staring at the blue light. My back of him is on the countertop and I thought he was punching me. I felt this pressure on my pubic bone. I thought he was punching me,” she said in early May.

“I could feel his arm moving and it looked like he was punching me. But I could just feel this pressure.”

Ms Heard said she remembered being still, not wanting to move, looking around the room, and seeing broken bottles and broken glass.

“I remember not wanting to move because I didn’t know of it was broken – I didn’t know if the bottle that he had inside me was broken,” she said.

“I couldn’t feel it. I didn’t feel pain. I didn’t feel pain. I didn’t feel anything. … I looked around and I saw so much broken glass… I just remember thinking ‘Please God, please. I hope it’s not broken.’”

Mr Depp’s attorney tried to pick apart Ms Heard’s version of events, grilling her about the timeline of the violent incident that night.

“I have never testified to a sequence,” Ms Heard responded.

“I did a lot of things that night.”

The court heard an audio clip of Mr Depp and Ms Heard speaking about the incident in Australia.

In the clip, Mr Depp is heard saying he went into five rooms in the house to try to get away from his spouse, likening it to a break in a boxing match.

“A boxer needs a break, and can’t go 12 rounds,” Mr Depp is heard saying.

“You weren’t scared of him at all were you?” questioned the attorney.

Ms Heard replied: “This was a man who tried to kill me. Of course I was scared but he was also my husband.”

The actress later told the court that despite the violent attack she didn’t feel she had “the power to leave” her husband.

“I very much wanted to leave the relation ship I was in but I didn’t think I had the power to leave,” she said.

“I knew I was in a very toxic relationship with Johnny.”

Mr Depp is suing his ex-wife for defamation over a 2018 op-ed she penned for Washington Post where she described herself as a “a public figure representing domestic abuse”.

the Pirates of the Caribbean actor is not named in the article, which is titled “I spoke up against sexual violence – and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change”.

However Mr Depp claims that it falsely implies that he is a domestic abuser – something that he strongly denies – and that it has left him struggling to land roles in Hollywood. He is suing for $50m.
