Despite the multimillion-dollar lawsuits the former spouses have filed against one other, Amber Heard claims she has “always maintained a love” for her ex-husband, Johnny Depp. The Aquaman star issued a statement on Instagram on April 11, the day before the defamation trial is slated to begin in Virginia.
As previously reported, Depp is suing Heard for defamation of character over an op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post. Heard described incidents Depp is saying imply that he threatened, intimidated and was violent towards his ex-wife.
She specifically referenced warnings that she would be blacklisted in the film industry, that she was dropped from a film and as a brand ambassador for a fashion label. She also said that speaking out about her experiences of sexual violence nearly cost her the part of Mera in Justice League and Aquaman.
