The cross-examination of Heard ended on Monday after an extreme exchange with Depp’s attorney over her failure to fulfill her pledge in her divorce settlement, to two charities.
Heard recently admitted that she has not yet donated the 7 million she received to the American Civil Liberties Union and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.
Depp’s attorney, Camille Vasquez, pushed Heard about the issue, accusing her of wanting to keep the money to himself. Vasquez said in cross-examination that the donations were an attempt to make Heard’s allegations “more believable” and to come across as a “noble victim”.
Heard denied that she wanted to be seen as a victim, She also denied rumors that she was with Depp for his wealth.”Didn’t get it, wasn’t interested in it,” Heard said of Depp’s money. “I loved Johnny. That’s why I was with him.” The trial is expected to end this week.
