Lawyers have been questioning Amber Heard about an important post-Met Gala 2014 image after her shocking accusations against Johnny Depp.
Amber Heard has come under pressure over her claims that Johnny Depp may have broken her nose after the 2014 Met Gala, with the actor’s lawyers citing photos showing her uninjured in court.

“I’d love to,” Hurd replied. “It’s not my job.”
Vasquez then entered the photographs as evidence.
