When Johnny Depp had filed $50 million defamation suit against Amber Heard, many shocking things came out. Everyone was shocked when the Pirates of The Caribbean actor revealed that Amber physically attacked him. He claimed that she even severed his finger. When the Aquaman actress filed a divorce with Depp in 2016, she had accused him of alleged domestic violence. But these revelations by the actor changed everything.
At that time, even Amber Heard’s friend defended Johnny Depp. Laura Divenere, Heard’s friend, in her statement, said that she never witnessed any injuries on Heard. Divenere used to work as an interior decorator and was in regular touch with the Aquaman actress at that time.
As reported by The Blast, Laura Divenere talked about the alleged abuse Amber Heard said she suffered on May 21, 2016. Laura’s statement reads, “I was with Amber and interacted with her frequently on the several days immediately following her abuse allegation … including at least on May 23, 24, 25. On those days, I worked with Amber, retrieved packages for her, rode elevators with her, and saw her up close and in person. On none of those days immediately following the abuse claims did I observe any signs of physical abuse or injury, including redness, swelling, cuts, bruising, or damage of any kind.”
Laura further defended Johnny Depp and mentioned that she didn’t see any Amber Heard injured in any way. “I never saw Amber injured in any way, although I am now aware that she has had many different abuse claims. I knew and interacted with Amber’s close friends Rocky Pennington, iO Tillett Wright, and her sister Whitney Heard. None of them ever mentioned any accusation of violence or other abuse against Amber by Mr. Depp,” wrote Divenere in her statement.
Laura Divenere then added that it was Amber Heard who was verbally abusive towards her former assistant Kate. Laura mentioned, “I witnessed Amber being verbally abusive towards her former assistant Kate, screaming at her on the phone. Her then-assistant Kate called me several times in tears, very upset, regarding the treatment she received from Amber.”
