Since both celebrities are flinging accusations at each other, the Amber Heard-Johnny Depp trial has gotten a lot of media attention. Camille Vasquez, one of Johnny Depp‘s attorneys, is currently in the spotlight.
Mr. Depp is suing his ex-wife Amber Heard over an op-ed piece she published for the Washington Post in 2018 in which she characterized herself as a domestic abuse victim.
‘The Pirates of the Caribbean‘ star filed a $50 million defamation action against Ms. Heard, despite the fact that she never referenced Depp by name in the article.
Camille Vasquez has been in the news this week as a result of her cross-examination of Amber Heard. Ms. Heard testified earlier in the trial about how Johnny Depp became a “monster” under the influence of drugs and alcohol and became violent with her.
“Who was the actual monster in this relationship, Ms. Heard?” Ms. Vasquez asked throughout the trial.
“It’s half of Johnny,” Ms. Heard said. “It’s not the whole of Johnny… The man I loved is the other half of him, who is great and gorgeous.”
“You’re the one who assaulted someone with a bottle in Australia, isn’t that correct, Ms. Heard?” the lawyer asked in another heated argument with Ms. Heard.
“I didn’t assault Johnny in Australia,” the actress responded. “I never assaulted Johnny.”
Many Johnny Depp fans have created campaigns in support of the actor following the public hearing.
“I am still a Johnny Depp fan, but I am ALSO now a die-hard Camille Vasquez lover #IStandWithJohnyDepp,” one user said on Twitter.
