Ellen Barkin to Testify in Johnny Depp and Amber Heard Trial (LATEST NEWS)

When Amber Heard’s defamation trial with her ex-husband Johnny Depp starts next week, actress Ellen Barkin and Whitney Henriquez, Amber Heard’s sister, will both testify on her behalf.

While Heard will testify in person and Barkin through videotape, PEOPLE has confirmed that the two witnesses will be summoned to the stand. It is expected that Depp, 58, will also be questioned by Heard’s legal team when he returns to testify.

His testimony on behalf of Heard in Depp’s high-profile libel claim against the British newspaper The Sun was heard by both Henriquez and Barkin.

Despite the fact that she didn’t mention him by name, Depp accuses Heard in her 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post of damaging his reputation and sabotaging his career prospects because of her experiences with domestic abuse. He said that he lost “nothing short of everything” following Heard’s accusations against him.

He married Heard in 2015, but they divorced in May of 2016 after she filed for a restraining order against him for allegedly abusing her. Depp disputed the accusations, and the former couple resolved their divorce in August 2016 without going to court.

Johnny Depp’s ex-girlfriend Kate Moss and Johnny Depp’s sister Henriquez have both been addressed in Heard’s evidence thus far, with Heard claiming on May 5 that Henriquez was once “in the line of fire… trying to get Johnny to stop” during a fight.

“[Whitney’s] back was to the staircase, and Johnny swings at her,” the Aquaman 2 actress testified. The first thing that pops into my brain when I hear the word stairs is Kate Moss.

“And I swung at him,” Heard said, referring to the alleged March 2015 confrontation between herself, Henriquez, and Johnny Depp. “In all of my relationships to date with Johnny, I hadn’t landed a blow. And I, for the first time, hit him — like, actually hit him. Square in the face.”

 While they were filming Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas together in the late ’90s, Barkin admitted to Reuters that he had tossed a wine bottle across a hotel room.

When asked whether Barkin carried a grudge against him, actor Will Smith told Reuters the assertion was “untrue” and added, “I do not have an anger-management problem.”

The trial, which began on April 11, was put on hold this week and will continue at 9 a.m. ET on Monday. It has been ordered by Judge Penney Azcarate that the jurors in the Fairfax County, Virginia, case not conduct online research while they are on break. Stay tuned with us on leedaily.com
