Actress Amber Heard took the stand in the ongoing defamation trial launched by her ex-husband Johnny Depp, today.
“I struggled to have the words, I struggled to find the words to describe how painful this is. This is horrible for me to sit here for weeks and relive everything,” she said.
Heard said that she felt terrible listening to her ex-husband and people some of whom she knew well and some not, talk about the couple’s lives.
She claimed that it was one of the most painful and difficult things that she has ever gone through.
Depp is suing Heard for $50 million in defamation over an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post in 2018. Though there was no mention of her ex-husband in the article, Depp claimed that he had to suffer in his acting career because of it.
Depp testified over a course of many days and his attorneys rested the case on Tuesday.
Heard married Depp in 2015. Both of them accuse each other of domestic violence during the time they stayed together. Heard and Depp denied each other’s charges.
