A shocking new video of Hollywood actor Amber Heard’s sister talking about how the Aquaman star assaulted her has been revealed. The London High Court, during Johnny Depp’s libel trial held on July 24, 2020, saw the video as a piece of evidence stating that the actor was, in fact, violent with her sister. It has been reported that the video was shown by Johnny Depp’s libel trial after her sister claimed that Amber Heard has never assaulted her physically.
Johnny Depp, 57, claims that Amber Heard was violent towards him in their marriage. However, Amber Heard stated that she only tried to defend her sister when she lost her cool with the actor.

When she was asked if her sibling was ever violent towards her, Henriquez stated that Amber Heard was never physically abusive towards her. However, on July 24, 2020, Johnny Depp’s lawyer David Sherborne presented an explosive video to the judge.
