Just when we thought we were done hearing about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s messy divorce and defamation case, here we are again. Despite losing her court battle with Depp, Amber Heard has since given a lengthy, three-part interview on the Today Show about it. She says that she will “stand by every word of her testimony until the day she dies”. This is what the internet has to say about it.
Amber Heard’s Post-Court Today Show Interview
Amber Heard has evidently decided that she is not done talking about her relationship and marriage with Johnny Depp, despite the fact that everyone is pretty done hearing about it. Recently she gave an interview with the Today show about her lost defamation case. Today released the interview in three parts. (1)
In her court case against Depp, the jury found Heard guilty of defaming her ex-husband of abuse during their relationship. Heard, however, says that she stands by what she said. She claimed in the interview that she is prepared to stand by her testimony until the day she dies. Evidently, she doesn’t care about what the public says or thinks.
Lies and Claims of Lies
In the interview with Today host Savannah Guthrie, Heard continued to reiterate that her ex-husband Depp lied on the stand. She says that he was physically abusive toward her, despite him saying that he wasn’t. When Guthrie asked if him saying he never hit her was a lie, Heard responded:
“Yes it is… To my dying day, I will stand by every word of my testimony.” (2)
Other claims she made during the interview included ones against Depp’s lawyers. She says that they distracted the jury from the “real issues” during the trial. Those same lawyers, she claims, called to question her first amendment right to free speech, as well. She says she spoke up and ultimately paid the price for it.

Guthrie did not hold back in the interview, either. She questioned Heard about audio clips played during the trial. In these clips, you can hear Heard admitting to having been physically violent herself towards Depp. Heard claims that she never instigated violence, only responded to it. Her responses, she says, are something that she regrets.
“I never had to instigate it, I responded to it,” she claimed. “When you’re living in violence and it becomes normal – as I testified to – you have to adapt.”
She also claimed that the audio clips were edited and didn’t accurately reflect the entire situation.
