Viewers Point Out Detail In Amber Heard's Clothing During Johnny Depp Trial
| Last updated
Viewers have pointed out an interesting detail in the clothes worn by Amber Heard and Johnny Depp during their defamation trial.
Depp, 58, is suing his 35-year-old ex-wife Heard in a $50 million (£38.2 million) defamation lawsuit over domestic abuse claims she made in an article in The Washington Post in 2018.
Members of the public have been watching on from home as the former couple meet in court once again, and some eagle-eyed viewers spotted an intriguing similarity in their attire.
On the first day of the trial, Depp wore a tie with a symbol of a bee on it, and Heard subsequently wore the same - or a very similar - bee tie.

These minor - though albeit interesting - details were overlooked by most viewers, who were more interested in headline-grabbing moments such as the testimony of Depp's childhood friend, Isaac Baruch.
Asked if he was angry at Heard, he became emotional, saying: "I want this all to end – her to go heal, him to go heal.
"So many people have been affected by this malicious lie that she started and she created.
"It's not fair, it’s not right what she did, and what happened.
"For so many people to get affected from this, it's insane how this happened."

Earlier in the day, Baruch was asked about what he thought of Heard.
He said: "I fell in love with her just like Johnny did. She's totally respectful, gracious, she's got great teeth. She treated me with complete respect. Humour-wise, total locker room humour, demented humour.
"Every time I walked into that place, 'Isaac you want something to eat? You want something to drink?'"
Meanwhile, Heard's lawyers have labelled Depp an 'obsessed ex-husband hell-bent on revenge'.
Benjamin Rottenborn, representing Heard, said the actress had also suffered 'sexual violence at the hands of Depp'.
"You are being asked to decide a very simple question: were the words used by Amber in the 2018 opinion piece that was published in The Washington Post protected free speech under the first amendment or not?" he said in his opening remarks.
"The question is whether the words were protected by the first amendment, and the answer is very clearly yes."
He continued: "The evidence for Mr Depp isn't pretty… you're going to see who the real Johnny Depp is behind the fame, behind the pirate costumes.
"We're going to focus on those words… whether you look at them individually or in the context of the piece doesn't really matter, because they're true.
"Tragically it's true. Amber did suffer sexual violence at the hands of Depp."
