The night before she filed for divorce from Johnny Depp, Amber Heard invited James Franco to her house.
During cross-examination on Tuesday, Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez questioned Heard, 36, about her evidence in which she addressed getting a temporary domestic violence restraining order on May 27, 2016, so she could replace the locks.
Heard stated on Monday that she was “falling apart” and had difficulties sleeping due to panic episodes caused by Depp’s entry into the apartment where she was living. She testified that building employees would let him enter even if she told them not to.
Vasquez then asked why Heard “felt comfortable having James Franco over the evening of May 22, 2016, Ms. Heard?” Heard responded, “I do not know when James came over,” to which the attorney said, “Okay, let’s remind you.” She then played elevator surveillance footage of Heard and Franco with the timestamp of May 22, 2016, at about 11 p.m. on their way up to her penthouse.
In the footage, Franco, 44, wears a hat and backpack. At one point he rests his head on Heard’s shoulder, as she appears to place her head on his. They then exit the elevator together.
Heard confirmed that it was Franco in the video and that they were going to her penthouse. “That’s where I lived, yes,” she said, adding that she is unsure what she knew of Depp’s schedule at the time, when asked if she was aware her husband would be out of town.
