“She also has extensive experience handling parallel reputation management and crisis communications issues arising from these engagements.”
Is Camille Vasquez on Instagram?
Vasquez, aged 37, has gained a lot of interest from social media users throughout the Depp vs. Heard lawsuit so far thanks to the tough nature of her questioning.
There are even fan Instagram accounts which have been created to praise her, but she does not appear to have an official Instagram account.
What is the defamation case about?
Depp launched the defamation case against Heard in 2019, after she wrote an opinion piece published in the Washington Post in December of 2018 in which she described herself as a victim of domestic abuse and thereby implicating him as an abuser.
Depp’s lawyers claim that the article falsely implies that Heard was physically and sexually abused whilst she was married to him.
The article doesn’t mention Depp by name, but he claims it has cost him acting roles and is suing Heard for $50m (£40m).
She has counter-sued him for $100m (£80m), claiming Depp defamed her when his legal team referred to her claims as “fake” and a “sexual violence hoax”.
The former couple have both accused each other of being physically violent during their relationship, and they each deny the other’s claims.
Depp and Heard met while they were filming the 2011 film The Rum Diary, in which they played lovers, and the two married in LA in February 2015.
In May 2016 Heard obtained a restraining order against Depp after accusing him of abuse, which he denied. Their divorce was finalised in 2017.
What did Amber Heard say during her testimony?
Amber Heard took to the stand this week, during the sixth and final week of the trial, to give evidence.
On Monday 16 May, jurors saw photos of Heard with red marks and swelling on her face after the couple’s alleged final fight before their divorce, and heard her testimony about her expertise in covering up bruises with make-up.
Heard said the marks came when Depp threw a phone at her face, and it was that confrontation that caused her to file for divorce in 2016.
Heard also strongly denied an accusation from Depp that she left excrement in the couple’s bed after a fight for a prank.
Heard said it was the couple’s teacup Yorkshire terrier had left a mess in the bed, and that it had a history of bowel problems because it accidentally ate some of Depp’s marijuana.
She said: “Absolutely not. I don’t think that’s funny. I don’t know what grown woman does. I was not in a pranking mood.”
She finished her evidence by saying that she receives daily accusations from Depp’s supporters that she’s lying about the abuse, and that hearing them is “torture” for her.
She said: “I want to move on with my life. I want Johnny to move on. I want him to leave me alone.”
What did Camille Vasquez ask Amber Heard during cross-examination?
Vasquez asked Heard about various times she claims Depp hit her, including the occasions on which he allegedly broke her nose, split her lip and punched her repeatedly in the head.
She then presented multiple photos of Heard, taken days after the alleged incidents, with no visible signs of injury to the court.
