Amber Heard was apparently caught in the act of lying after his lawyer Elaine Bredehoft claimed that the actress had used makeup product while Milani Cosmetics to cover her bruises Johnny Depp would have given him.
The only problem with the allegation is that Milani All-in-one concealer kit was only launched in 2017, as the brand itself explains. Milani Cosmetics released a ICT Tac video on Friday explaining that the makeup kit displayed by Heard’s attorney would not have been available until 2017, pointing out that the alleged abuse occurred anytime between 2012 and 2016.
Johnny Depp’s trial continues on Monday
Although Heard’s attorney didn’t specifically name Milani Cosmetics in court, she held up the makeup kit and said Heard wore it every day to hide her bruises. It could be that Bredehoft simply used the product as an example of the type of makeup Heard used, but it’s also possible that they were simply lying about the abuse.
The trial continues in Virginia on Monday as Depp attempts to prove that the 2018 Washington Post essay written by Heard – in which she accused him of domestic violence – was defamation. Depp has denied Heard’s allegations from the start and is asking for a minimum of $50 million in compensatory damages plus a punitive award of at least $350,000, as well as court costs and attorneys’ fees.
