Amber heard may not get much of a shoulder to cry on from the public during her trial with Johnny Depp — but her legal team is definitely…specifically, Elaine Bredehoft†
It’s been a tense week for Team Heard… at least that seems to be the general consensus online, with many noting what seems obvious – namely that Ms Bredehoft struggled during the diversion after Camilla VasquezI‘s laser-directed cross-examination of AH.
If you saw that on Tuesday (Amber’s last day in the stands), you certainly saw the frustration when Vasquez constantly objected to the questions that Bredehoft asked… word out.
In fact, Bredehoft seemed to recognize the difficulty of the moment… apparently looking up in her mind / devising a way to ask for something without objection. She literally said “I’m trying, I’m trying”… and in the end she didn’t have a too successful diversion.
After Bredehoft wrapped up the diversion, Amber hurriedly left the courtroom… this after the judge told her she could resign and rejoin her lawyers. Frankly, Amber seemed angry.
There have also been rumors — unconfirmed, mind you — that AH and her team got into fights and screams in the courtroom while the camera wasn’t rolling. No way to tell if that’s true, but most people seem to believe that AH and co. come out with a lawyer during this process… and that it may catch on internally.
Which leads us to the sympathy that Elaine seems to have garnered from some… people on TikTok and elsewhere say that she and the other Heard lawyers often look down and out — and a handful of apparent Depp supporters even say that them for EB, suggesting she has an uphill battle, as well as a not-so-defensible client — at least that’s their reading.
Of course, we’re sure Elaine herself would vehemently disagree with that characterization — and, more importantly… it’s up to the judges to decide who’s ahead and who will win.
While a large number of people might think Amber’s testimony was so-so to bolster her defense, others say the witnesses her team set up afterward were much more effective in supporting her claim that Johnny was allegedly abusive/controlling in their actions. relation.
ex of JD, Ellen Barkin, testified that he once threw a wine bottle at her and was jealous. Additionally, other AH witnesses have testified to seeing firsthand alleged injuries and/or actual beatings to Amber by Johnny…and if the jury thinks he hit her even once, he loses.
In other words, it’s a game for everyone right now… despite Tuesday’s outcome.
