The libel trial between actor Johnny Depp and actress Amber Heard recently concluded its first week and there have been a lot of shocking revelations already. Testimonies from the couple's therapist and also Depp's sister have been heard.
Another major happening at the trial as per reports is also that Heard's friend had been thrown out of the courtroom and has been banned from there. As reported by Page Six, Amber Heard’s close friend, British music journalist Eve Barlow, was thrown out of the Johnny Depp trial. The court's decision to ban Barlow came after she was reportedly caught texting and tweeting from the front row of the courtroom by the judge.
Page Six further reported that Eve Barlow also tried to intervene in the trial over Depp-friendly witness Gina Deuters. A source informed Page Six about how Barlow's ban came about and said, "Eve Barlow seems to think she’s part of Amber’s legal team. Depp’s lawyers finally had enough and had her barred from the courtroom."
The report also stated that the court transcript mentioned the judge mentioning Barlow tweeting and texting from the courtroom adding that it's against the court order and hence she won't be allowed to enter the courtroom henceforth for the rest of the trial.
For the unversed, the ongoing trial began with Depp suing Heard over a 2018 op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post about surviving domestic violence. The actor claims that Heard fabricated abuse allegations in an attempt to gain a huge divorce settlement, which has damaged his career. Heard, on the other hand, has maintained that she told the truth and has countersued Depp for USD 100 million.
