Amber Heard denies striking Johnny Depp and doctoring photos

Actor Johnny Depp’s legal team has accused his former wife Amber Heard of using drugs, striking him, and manipulating photos she has used as evidence of his alleged abuse.

Ms Heard, 36, was being cross-examined about her allegations that Mr Depp could be violent while using alcohol and drugs.

The 58-year-old actor is suing his ex-wife for $50m (£40m) for a column she wrote in which she claimed to be a victim of domestic abuse.

He has denied ever assaulting her.

Mr Depp’s lawyers cross-examined Ms Heard on her version of events related to a lengthy 2015 argument between the former couple, which took place while in Australia.

That argument has been raised repeatedly over the course of the trial.

Mr Depp has claimed his ex-wife severed his fingertip by throwing a vodka bottle at him. Ms Heard has told jurors that Mr Depp sexually violated her with a bottle.

In court on Tuesday, Mr Depp’s lawyer questioned why Ms Heard did not seek medical attention despite claiming she suffered cuts and bruises during the chaotic fight.

“You’re the one who assaulted someone with a bottle in Australia, isn’t that right Ms Heard,” attorney Camille Vasquez said.

In response, Ms Heard said that she “didn’t assault Johnny, ever”.

But she did acknowledge that she struck Mr Depp on several instances, which she said happened after “years of not defending myself”. She made similar statements on Monday, saying she “reactively” hit him during physical altercations.
