Johnny Depps friend blasts Amber Heard for ‘malicious lie in emotional statement, brings tears to court: Video

Johnny Depp’s close friend Isaac Baruch lambasted Amber Heard during the latest hearing in defamation lawsuit on Wednesday (April 13), saying she’s affecting everyone with her ‘malicious lie’.

He broke down in tears while testifying in the court, saying: “It’s not fair, it’s not right what she did, and what happened.”

He said: “I want this all to end – her to go heal, him to go heal.

“So many people have been affected by this malicious lie that she started and she created.

“It’s not fair, it’s not right what she did, and what happened.

“For so many people to get affected from this, it’s insane, how this happened.”

Caroline Patrickis, 7News DC reporter, said Depp could be seen ‘smiling quite a bit’ as Baruch testified – at one point saying Heard claimed Depp had hit her but that she had no bruises or marks on her face.

Johnny Depp is suing his 35-year-old ex-wife Amber in a $50 million (£38.2 million) defamation lawsuit over domestic abuse claims she made in an article in The Washington Post.

Isaac Baruch, who is the actor’s childhood friend, has been one of several people testifying at the Fairfax County courthouse in Virginia – at one point becoming visibly emotional behind the stand.

Depp’s sister Christi Dembrowski, 61, has also testified at the trial, having taken to the stand yesterday to describe how Depp had sworn never to perpetuate domestic violence after experiencing it from their ‘high strung, nervous’ and ‘angry’ mother, Betty Sue Palmer.

Responding to questions led by Depp’s lawyer Benjamin Chew, she continued: “Mom would scream, yell at him, she would hit him, call him names, that kind of thing.”

Depp appeared emotional as his sister recalled moments from their childhood and at times looked to the floor.
