London: Amber Heard has declared she “did not choose this fight” and said she had placed her “faith in British justice” as Johnny Depp’s libel trial against The Sun drew to a close.
Speaking on the steps of the High Court after the final hearing, Heard said she would have preferred not to have been in court for the past three weeks as part of a legal dispute between Depp, her ex-husband, and the tabloid newspaper which described him as a “wife-beater”.
“It has been incredibly painful to relive the break-up of my relationship, have my motives and my truth questioned, and the most traumatic details of my life with Johnny shared in court and broadcast around the world,” Heard said. “I stand by my testimony in court and I now place my faith in British justice.”
Her statement came hours after Depp’s legal team described her in court as a “compulsive liar” who “gratuitously and totally invented” an incident in which she alleged the American actor threw Kate Moss down the stairs.
