In one of her interventions in the middle of the trial in which she faces her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, Amber Heard claimed to have been hit by him so hard that her lip was visibly lacerated and bloody.
To support this testimony, the defense of the actress presented a photograph that was rejected for not having been presented on time.
As he narrated, She was in the kitchen living room when he backhanded her -with the back of his hand- :”He wears a lot of rings. I remember it felt like my lip went into my teeth and I had a little blood on the wall. It’s that simple, a little blood on the wall“.

According to ‘TMZ’, the idea of Heard’s defense was to show this image to the jury, but Depp’s team opposed it, since Amber’s lawyers would never have sent the photo during the discovery stage of the case.
The judge agreed with this premise and dismissed the use of the image during the legal process.
The aforementioned medium had access to the group of litigants who are in charge of defending the protagonist of “Pirates of the Caribbean”, who assured that the image is from 2012.
Amber would have said, during the defamation case that took place in the United Kingdom, that the first violent incident was in 2013, so the dates would not coincide.
