Amber Heard vs Johnny Depp closing arguments: Depp's lawyer calls Heard a 'deeply troubled person'

The closing arguments in the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard defamation trial were delivered on Friday.

The trial of the much-talked-about Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard defamation case has finally ended with both teams delivering their closing arguments on Friday. The jury is now contemplating a verdict in the high-profile case.

Depp's attorney closed their final arguments, asking the jurors to give the actor his life back by telling the world that he is 'not the abuser.' They also urged them to hold Heard accountable for her lies.

'The evidence presented at this trial has shown that Miss Heard is in fact the abuser and Mr Depp the abused,' attorney Camille Vasquez said.

She also described Ms. Heard as a 'deeply troubled person, violently afraid of abandonment, desperate for attention and approval.'

Ben Chew, attorney for the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor, said Depp was canceled by Hollywood because Ms. Heard falsely accused him of domestic and sexual violence in her 2018 Washington Post op-ed. He added that this case is not about monetary compensation but about the actor's reputation.

The attorney further stressed that Depp is 'no saint' and he has struggled with drugs and alcohol, but he is not an abuser as Heard claims.

'He owns his flaws. He admits to them. He told you all about them. But he is not a violent abuser,' he said.

Heard's legal team during the closing arguments, recapped the case using text messages, videos, and pictures and told the jurors that Depp's attorneys are trying to 'trick' them by claiming that Heard should have taken more pictures of the physical abuse.

'Remember what I said at the beginning, if you take pictures, they're fake. If you didn't take pictures, it didn't happen. Here's one where she did take a picture. But Miss Vasquez says, 'But she doesn't have injuries on her face.' Look at the date that this picture was taken. Ladies and gentlemen, March 23rd, 2013, 15 days after this incident. So even when there are pictures, they're trying to deceive you into thinking, 'Oh, there should have been more.' This is a two week old bruise,' said Heard's lawyer.
