On day two of Johnny Depp’s trial against Amber Heard, the actor’s childhood friend drops the actress’ accusations


Isaac Baruch has known Johnny Depp since the early 80s and lived in the same building as Amber Heard and the actor, who hosted him graciously, at the time of their marriage. He was therefore at the forefront of the relationship of the two stars who have been facing each other since Monday in court. The star of Pirates of the Caribbean accuses his ex-wife of defamation, following a column published in the washington post in 2018 in which she presented herself as a victim of domestic violence.

Unsurprisingly, the actor’s childhood friend took the side of the one who provided him with a roof and the possibility of exercising his art – painting – without worrying about the end of the month. However, Isaac Baruch’s testimony failed to be shaken by the defense of Amber Heard. He lived in an apartment in the Eastern Columbia Building in Los Angeles from 2013 to 2016. A penthouse on the same landing as that of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. The actor, who owned several apartments in this building, also hosted friends of his ex-wife and her sister at his own expense.


Isaac Baruch testified that he had the opportunity to see Amber Heard on different occasions, both with and without makeup, the important point for the defense and the prosecution. Indeed, Johnny Depp claims that the star ofAquaman staged the facial injuries that could be seen in photos that went viral at the time of their 2016 divorce. The actor’s childhood friend is adamant: on May 22, 2016, when she claimed to have been hit by Johnny Depp, he saw no trace of a blow. “I saw her with make-up, without, ready to go out… For three and a half years, I saw her in all her forms. (May 22, 2016) I inspect his face… I look everywhere and I see nothing… Not a cut, bruise, swelling, redness. It’s just his face, ”he said under oath, as relayed by Sky News.

Isaac Baruch also said he resented Amber Heard for “inventing” domestic abuse. “About those doctored photos that were taken and given to the tabloids and the fake story? And the way she tried to extort a man with a false claim of domestic violence? Yeah, it made me angry, confused, yeah. It’s been six years… Am I still mad? What I am is tired and I want it to end. (…) So many people were affected by this lie that she started… I’m not angry with anyone. I want the best for her, for her to take responsibility, heal and move on. For Johnny, his family has been completely unsettled by this whole thing and that’s not fair. What she did is not right or what happened to all the people it affected is crazy,” he added.

Johnny Depp’s line of attack in his libel suit against his ex-wife is to prove that her life has been destroyed by the domestic abuse allegations, both personally and professionally. The actor, who claims $ 50 million from Amber Heard, has already lost his lawsuit against the Sun who had called him a “woman hitter”, which the British justice had found to be “substantially true”.
