Amber Heard returned to the witness stand Monday for her third day of testimony in a libel suit filed against her by her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.
Inside a packed and largely maskless courtroom, Heard at times broke down in tears as she recalled her relationship with the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor. She characterized their relationship as “violent and chaotic” at times.
The court played clips of a discussion between Heard and Depp, where she can be heard telling her ex-husband that even though she has evidence of his abuse towards her, she doesn’t want to go public with it because she didn’t want to “hurt” him.
“I was begging Johnny to not make me prove what I’ve had to sit on this stand in front of all of you and prove and talk about. … I didn’t want this. I don’t want to be here,” Heard said. “I was trying to point out how absurd it would be for him to keep making me prove this by calling me a liar.”
