Johnny Depp’s neighbor and childhood friend Isaac Baruch says that he never saw any bruises on Aquaman star Amber Heard after their alleged fights.
Johnny Depp’s lawsuit against Rupert Murdoch’s News Group Newspapers and journalist Dan Wootton for an article in The Sun recently went to trial. Witnesses have been called in to testify revealing a marriage that could be described as toxic. Many have already taken Johnny Depp’s side in the ongoing trial, with Johnny Depp’s neighbor and childhood friend, Isaac Brunch, being the latest to take the Fantastic Beasts star’s side.
While speaking at the trial, Isaac Baruch had nothing but good things to say about Johnny Depp, calling him a generous man:
“He’s an ubermensch, he’s generous to everybody. He’s a true, honest man; he’s a good guy. He does the right thing, he knows how to do the right thing. He’s someone you wanna care about because he does the right thing.”
Later on, he recounted a particular incident where Amber Heard changed the locks on the apartment that she and Johnny Depp shared. She revealed to Isaac Baruch that Johnny Depp had hit her in the face and threw a phone at her. When he inspected her face, however, he could not see any marks or bruising on her, causing him to doubt the Aquaman star’s story:
“She told me that he hit her in the face and threw a phone at her. I then asked her where he had hit her, and she stretched her neck and pushed out the right side of her head for me to look at her right eye.
We both were standing in front of the open doorway of Penthouse 1. With lights from the hallway and the sunlight that came in through the windows from Penthouse 1, which filled the room and spread into the hallway, it was very easy for me to get an excellent view of Ms. Heard’s face.
I literally was around 12 inches from her, inspecting her face and I did not see a single mark or evidence of any marks, bruising or swelling of any kind anywhere on her face.”
What do you all make of Isaac Baruch’s story? Could it be that the Aquaman star was making the assault story up? Could Brauch simply be covering up for Johnny Depp? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
