Amber Heard pushed and assaulted a former friend
A former acquaintance of Amber Heard testified Tuesday in the defamation lawsuit in which actor Johnny Depp is suing for $50 million, stating that the actress pushed or hit her in the face at some point.
“very close.” is how Raquel Pennington describes her relationship with Heard, whom she first met in 2003. The eyewitness said that they had been friends for a long time and remained close even after Heard’s marriage to Johnny Depp ended in divorce.
During the 30-minute interview with Amber’s best friend, who spoke about her connection with Heard, she also talked about how she and Heard had shared a condominium with Johnny Depp and Amber.
She also mentioned that Pennington and Heard had a disagreement about Thanksgiving meal.
In preparation for Thanksgiving, Pennington stated, “We were getting ready for Thanksgiving and we were looking for maybe some glasses or china and couldn’t find them anywhere,”
“She finally found them in a place that I thought she had been looking for and we started arguing about it. She thought I wasn’t looking hard enough and I told her I thought I had looked there,” she added
she said, the actress “either pushed me or hit me back,” before noting that “it was on my cheek.”
Additionally, she claimed to know of “no other” instances of her hitting someone other than Aquaman star Amber Heard during the altercation.
Due to her “prioritisation of other relationships,” Pennington stated she ended her connection with Heard.
