Surveillance footage shows Amber Heard getting cuddly with James Franco in a private elevator when she was still married to Johnny Depp. The elevator was en route to Depp’s Los Angeles penthouse, a home he shared with Heard at the time.
The security footage, dated May 22, 2016, was shown before a London court in 2020, when Depp was suing The Sun for libel. The video was reposted days ago by Law & Crime, in light of Depp’s recent testimony in a Virginia court about his suspicions that Heard cheated on him with Franco.
“I don’t recall, but it’s highly likely,” Depp said this month, asked if he had a fight with Heard about Franco. The 58-year-old answered in the affirmative when he was asked if he suspected Heard cheating with the “Pineapple Express” actor.
The footage shows Franco and Heard getting cuddly and having what Heard called a “discreet” conversation in the private elevator.
“The video was filmed on May 22, 2016, the day after Heard alleges Johnny Depp threw her mobile phone at her, hitting her in the face, which Depp denies. It was just days before she filed for divorce,” NZ Herald reported in 2020.
“The footage shown in court from the CCTV system of Heard’s home in LA [Depp’s penthouse] shows her entering a lift on May 22, 2016, at 22.56pm wearing a long robe and going down to collect James Franco from reception,” the report outlined. “He enters the lift wearing a baseball cap and is carrying a backpack. Once inside the pair huddle in a corner with their faces away from the camera.”
Heard met Franco down in reception at 11 p.m. and brought him up to the penthouse. Referring to the time of night she was with Franco, the actress said she wasn’t sleeping much those days.
On the stand, Heard was asked if she was trying not to be “seen by the camera.” The actress said her conversation with Franco was “discreet”.
“We were talking and he was saying to me ‘Oh my god what happened to you?'” Heard claimed, suggesting she had marks on her face from Depp’s abuse. “‘What the f***?’ is what he said to me.'”
Depp has accused Heard of cheating on him with Franco and Tesla CEO Elon Musk. The actress has denied the alleged affairs.
Both Franco and Musk have declined to testify in Depp’s $50 million defamation case against Heard.
"Under VA law there is no way Musk or Franco can be forced to attend proceedings. Neither side can compel them to appear although first listed on Heard's witness list.
They likely won't show up."
It's ok, we got you on tape and seen by witnesses who will testify. We keep going. pic.twitter.com/kGrLV7Txsq
