Makeup Brand Disputes Amber Heard’s Claims She Used Their Concealer To Cover Up Domestic Violence Bruises

Makeup Brand Disputes Amber Heard’s Claims She Used Their Concealer To Cover Up Domestic Violence Bruises

Her claims have been debunked by the cosmetic company in a social media video that rivals Elle Woods' iconic perm gotcha in Legally Blonde.

A make-up brand has dived head-first into the drama of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's ongoing legal dispute.

Milani Cosmetics dropped a video on social media to refute claims the Aquaman actress used their cosmetics to cover up bruises allegedly given to her by her ex-husband.

The makeup brand, which is based in Los Angeles, uploaded the clip to TikTok to prove they started selling their All In One Correcting Kit after Heard had filed for divorce from the Pirates of the Caribbean actor.

The video reveals the brand dropped the make up kit in 2017, which doesn't fit with the timeline offered up by Heard's defence lawyers.

Heard's lawyer, J. Ben Rottenborn, appeared before the court brandishing a Milani Cosmetics All In One Correcting Kit in his opening statements, according to Yahoo News.

Rottenborn said the actress used the multi-colour concealer to camouflage her bruises allegedly given to her by Depp during their tumultuous relationship.

"This was what she used," Rottenborn said in court, holding the circular gold compact to show to the court.

"She became very adept at it.

"You’re going to hear the testimony from Amber about how she had to mix the different colours for the different days of the bruises as they developed in the different colouring and how she would use to touch those up to be able to cover those."

Milani's correcting kit supposedly used by Heard.

Heard filed for divorce from Depp in 2016, with a bitter legal dispute now unfurling before the court.

Taking to the stand last week, Depp was made to watch video footage of himself smashing up his kitchen after allegedly drinking a lot of red wine.

In the footage, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor could be heard shouting ‘mother f**ker’ repeatedly and punching a wall.

When asked by Heard, who is behind the camera, what had happened, items were heard seemingly being smashed and thrown.

Upon the video being shown, Rottenborn asked Depp: “This is at your house in West Hollywood.

“That's you on the video. You were violent?”

Depp responded: “Clearly I was having a bad time. I don't know what with regard to, but being illegally recorded by your chosen other is quite fitting with the rest of the photographs and tape recordings.”

He added: “I did assault a couple of cabinets, but I did not touch Miss Heard.”

The film star is suing his ex-wife for $AUD 67 million (£38.2m) for defamation over an op-ed she wrote in 2018 for The Washington Post.

In the article, which did not name Depp specifically, Heard claimed she had suffered abuse in the past.

Heard has made a counterclaim against her ex-husband for $AUD 136million (£76.6m) in a case that is currently being held in Virginia.
