Amber Heard details death threats as testimony ends in Johnny Depp defamation case

“Aquaman” actor Amber Heard delivered the final testimony in the multimillion-dollar defamation battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp on Thursday (May 26), telling jurors she faces daily harassment and death threats since she accused the Hollywood star of abuse.

Heard returned to the stand at the request of her attorneys ahead of closing arguments on Friday (May 27).

Speaking through tears, Heard said she has been “harassed, humiliated, threatened every single day” since accusing the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star of physical and sexual abuse.

“People want to kill me and they tell me so every day,” Heard said.

Depp, 58, sued Heard in Virginia for $50 million and argued that she defamed him when she called herself “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” Heard, 36, has countersued for $100 million, saying Depp smeared her when his lawyer said her accusations were a “hoax.”

“Johnny has taken enough of my voice,” Heard told the jury. “I have the right to tell my story.”

Depp has denied hitting Heard or any woman and said she was the one who turned violent in their relationship.

The case is expected to go the jury on Friday after each side presents closing arguments.
