Amber HeardThe lawyer of Johnny Depp — but the brand itself says… not so fast.
One of the actress’ lawyers, Elaine Bredehoftsaid in opening statements last week that Amber often resorted to makeup during her time with Depp … to supposedly hide marks she claims were left by her boyfriend-turned-husband.
Bredehoft told the jury they would hear testimony and see evidence proving that Amber would use different makeup products to achieve this – and in fact held up one of the items Heard apparently used at the time, including a very specific Milani correction kit.
The problem… the kit wasn’t actually in circulation during the period described by Bredehoft – roughly between 2012 and 2016, before the divorce – according to Milani himself.
The company posted a TikTok video on its page refuting what Heard’s attorney was selling…writing, “You asked us…let the record show our patch kit launched in 2017!” added a hyper-cut video digging into the details at the launch of this kit – December 2017.
In short, there’s no way Amber is carrying this kit in her purse as her lawyer claimed. To be fair – Bredehoft didn’t specifically quote Milani during her demonstration to the jury, so it’s plausible that she’s just showing off her general makeup to make her point.
Still, if she was pointing specifically to the Milani kit, then yes… it doesn’t seem like her claim holds up based on what Milani himself says. It will be interesting to see if Depp hangs on to that point and presses it…or if it goes unnoticed.
Depp’s team presented witnesses claiming they had never seen marks on Amber, even when she was ‘not wearing makeup’ – but his team say they had no way of knowing whether she was made up or not, and that their testimony doesn’t prove it one way or another.
We’re heading into Week 3, and for now… Depp is still under cross-examination – much of which so far has focused on nasty texts he’s sent about Amber.
There was even a video released that shows JD loose the temper while being recorded in the kitchen – but he insisted he never laid a hand on her. Meanwhile, his team released a recording that appears to show Heard admit to hitting Depp and look for a fight.
She hasn’t spoken yet to explain her version of things, but will soon have her chance.
