“Until the day I die, I will keep every word of my testimony,” she affirmed in an interview excerpt aired by the NBC channel on Tuesday. This great interview, his first since the trial ended on June 1st, will be fully available on Friday.

However, she wasn’t shying away from her mistakes and admitted to “having said and done horrible things during our relationship.”

“It was very, very toxic, we were horrible to each other,” she said, claiming, “I’ve made a lot of mistakes, but I’ve always told the truth.”

She appeared twice at the top and opened up about the amount of violence she suffered during her relationship with Johnny Depp between 2011 and 2016. The two actors married in 2015 and eventually divorced in 2017.

Johnny Depp sued his ex-wife for defamation, who in a 2018 column published by The Washington Post described herself as “a public figure who represents domestic violence” without naming her ex-husband.

He is seeking $50 million in damages, saying the platform destroyed his career and reputation. Amber Heard countered and asked for the double.

After a six-week trial, the jury in the Fairfax, Washington, court concluded that the ex-spouses had defamed each other. But they’ve awarded the Pirates of the Caribbean star more than $10 million, versus just $2 million for Aquaman’s.

The high-profile trial, broadcast live on television, triggered a flood of insulting messages to the 36-year-old actress on social media.

She also mentioned the admirers of Johnny Depp who gathered around the courtyard every day.

“Every day I would walk by people lined up three, four, sometimes six blocks with ‘witch at the stake,’ ‘death amber,’ signs,” she said. “It’s the most humiliating and terrifying thing I’ve ever experienced.”

When the two ex-spouses accused each other of being responsible for the violence within their couple, Amber Heard affirmed that she “never started it”.

“I answered them,” she said. “When you live in violence and it becomes normal, as I have witnessed, you have to adapt.”
