TMZ showed the photo of Amber Heard with a split lip that was not admitted as proof of her in her favor, in the process of seeing her former husband Johnny Depp against her. Heard's lawyers had shown a photograph that they believe was a Johnny Depp attack on Amber Heard.
TMZ has received and posted this photo, which shows Heard with a bloody lip from a wound that allegedly was caused by one of Johnny Depp's rings. Below the pic by TMZ of Amber Heard with her breaked lip:
About the issue of the pic Johnny and Amber Heard were married in 2015 in a civil ceremony at the actor's home in West Hollywood, Los Angeles, while the festivities took place over the weekend, on the beach of Little Hall's Pond Cay, the Bahamian island owned by the actor.
In May 2016, however, after only 15 months of marriage, Heard filed for divorce from Depp, claiming she suffered physical violence when he was drunk. The story was immediately controversial and the couple concluded the divorce proceedings in January 2017.
A few days ago, Amber Heard's lawyers, who are defending the actress in the trial that sees her against her former martit Johnny Depp, presented to the court a photo as evidence of Johnny Depp's violence, in which Amber was shown with a lip split.
As mentioned, Heard presented her lip with bloodshot wounds and a note that reads the word "I'll be back" According to the lawyers this would be a threat from Depp to the former wife. However, according to Judge Penney Azcarate, the photo cannot be used in court.
Heard's lawyers were expected to present the photo along with other evidence before the trial began, during the time allotted to gather evidence, and not during the ongoing trial. A suspicion that especially the defenders of Depp and the dedractors of Heard, is that the photo was intentionally created at a later time, precisely to frame the protagonist of the Pirates of the Caribbean saga.
