During their highly publicized defamation trial, actor Johnny Depp accused Amber Heard of killing her childhood best friend in a car accident. The unofficial unsealed documents from their trial revealed that Amber Heard got into an accident in Texas on a suspended driver’s license when she was a teenager. Johnny Depp accused Amber Heard of defaming him in an op-ed she wrote in 2018. The jury ruled in favor of Johnny Depp in June and the Drive Angry star was asked to pay roughly $10 million in compensatory damages. These unsealed documents were reportedly obtained by Johnny Depp’s fanbase for roughly $3000.
Amber Heard got into an accident when she was a teenager
The documents say that Whitney Henriquez (Amber Heard’s sister) was cross-examined during the trial and information about Amber Heard‘s car accident when she was a teenager came into the limelight. The document said,
“At deposition, Mr. Depp cross-examined Ms. Henriquez, Ms. Heard’s sister (but never questioned Ms. Heard) respecting Ms. Heard’s juvenile driving record, including driving on a suspended license in Texas when she was a teenager”
Heard reportedly got into a car accident in Texas when she was driving on a suspended driver’s license as a teenager. The document further said,
“These driving violations were when Ms. Heard was a minor, and even then, are neither felonies nor ‘misdemeanors involving moral turpitude,’ and even if the convictions could be elicited, which they cannot, in no event may ‘the details of prior convictions be elicited.'”
However, this was not used against the actress in court as her team of lawyers claimed that it has no connection to the matter that is being discussed.

Amber Heard’s friend, Logan, lost his life in the car accident
The allegations continued despite Amber Heard’s lawyers claiming that Amber Heard was not behind the wheel. Johnny Depp‘s team revealed that in the alleged car accident, the actress’ childhood friend, Logan, lost his life. The document said,
“Mr. Depp also cross-examined Ms. Henriquez, suggesting her sister was driving the vehicle at the time of the tragic death of Ms. Heard’s close friend Logan when they were both teenagers. This suggestion was made even though there is not a stitch of evidence to support this outrageous allegation – Ms. Heard was nowhere near the county in which the accident occurred at the time and was devastated when notified.”
Once again this matter was not discussed in court as Amber Heard’s team claimed that it has no relation to the domestic abuse allegations and it should be “excluded as irrelevant to the issues at trial.” There is still no proof of the actress driving the vehicle when the accident occurred.

Johnny Depp accused Amber Heard of defaming him
Johnny Depp accused Amber Heard of defaming him in an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post back in 2018. In the op-ed, the Aquaman star accused her ex-husband of sexual abuse.
