Anyone who has been following Johnny and Amber’s defamation case has previously heard Johnny talk about his turbulent past marriage with Amber. According to CBS News, Johnny added that Amber’s charges against him are “not founded on any kind of fact.”
He emphasized that he had never considered hitting Amber –– or any woman –– in his life. He even admitted that when they initially started dating, his connection with Amber felt “too good to be true.”
“She seemed attentive,” he characterized her. She was tender. She was astute. She was thoughtful. She was amusing. She was considerate… We have a lot in common…” Unfortunately, things in their relationship did not last long.
She began acting differently, according to him, within the first year and a half of their relationship.
Johnny also apologized on the stand for some of the filthy text conversations he sent to a buddy in which he discussed his intention to exact revenge on Amber.
He continued making it clear that he never acted upon those impulses of anger to physically harm her. He also explained that the accusations of addiction Amber’s been painting about him aren’t truthful either.
He said, “The characterization of my ‘substance abuse’ that’s been delivered by Ms. Heard is grossly embellished. And I’m sorry to say, but a lot of it is just plainly false. I think that it was an easy target for her to hit.”
He went on to say, “Once you’ve trusted somebody for a certain amount of years, and you’ve told them all the secrets of your life, that information can of course be used against you.”
CBS News further stated that Amber is scheduled to testify later on in the trial. The exact date that she’ll take the stand has yet to be disclosed.
