LONDON (AP) — Amber Heard dismissed accusations Tuesday that she fabricated allegations of domestic violence against her ex-husband Johnny Depp, testifying during his libel case against a British tabloid. She also recounted the first time she says she struck him after years of abuse and that she only did so to defend her sister from being thrown down the stairs. Taking to the witness box for a second day at the High Court in London, the actress faced a barrage of questions over alleged incidents that are central to The Sun’s labeling of Depp in an April 2018 article as a “wife beater.” Depp denies abusing Heard, and claimed in court that she had been violent to him.
