“He never pushed me, kicked me, or threw me down any stairs. There had been a rainstorm, As I left the room, I slid down the stairs and I hurt my back. I screamed because I didn’t know what had happened to me and I was in pain. He came running back to help me and carried me to my room and got me medical attention.”

A Brief Note on Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s Trial
The defamation trial began on April 11 and concluded at the beginning of the previous month after weeks of trial with the jury awarding the actor awarded $10.35 million while the Aquaman actress is compensated with $2 million for her counter-claim. She wrote an op-ed in 2018 in which she referred to herself as the victim of domestic violence and sexual misconduct without mentioning her then-husband by his name though it greatly impacted the reputation of the celebrity.
