Amber Heard’s cuts and bruises to her face she obtained during the end of her relationship with Johnny Depp appeared when she had been “interacting with” Elon Musk and not while she was with the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, building staff at Heard and Depp’s LA penthouse have claimed in court.
The allegations were made in a sworn video statement made by Trinity Esparza who worked in the exclusive building, which housed Depp and Heard’s penthouse.
She said under oath that she saw no injuries to Heard’s face after Depp allegedly “threw a mobile phone at her like a baseball player” in a row that is claimed to have taken place on May 21.
Esparza, who owned the company responsible for the concierge service at the property, told London’s High Court that she saw Heard throughout the following week of the alleged incident but saw no bruises or cuts on the actress.
She adds that Heard was often not wearing makeup.
Esparza said: “She never wore makeup… Very rarely.
“She had a beautiful complexion.”
Six days after the alleged fight, she says Heard sported “a red cut underneath her right eye and red marks by her eye” on May 27, 2016.
Esparza went on to allege that two weeks after Depp left the Penthouse on June 4, she saw Heard with more injuries.
She claims Heard had a bruise on either side of her neck “in the shape of fingers and a bruise on her left cheek”.
Probed by Depp’s legal team as to the location of the defendant during this time, Esparza replied: “Out of the country.”
Asked as to whom Heard had been “interacting with” during this time, she simply added: “Elon Musk.”
Asked if there was anybody else, she replied: “No.”
Two months later (July 2016), Esparza said she saw Elon Musk go to the building to visit Ms Heard.
While Musk was there she said she noticed marks on Heard’s body – the “left side”.
She may also have seen a “band aid”.
The Sun’s QC Wass probed: “You want to suggest that Elon Musk must have injured her?”
Esparza added: “I didn’t suggest that. I don’t know what happened.”
Adam Waldman, Depp’s lawyer, said: “Johnny Depp left the country after Ms Heard’s most notorious abuse hoax where she claimed he threw a phone into her right eye. Yet two weeks later, the head concierge at the building testified she saw Ms Heard with a bruise under her other eye, finger shaped bruises on her throat and a bandaged arm.
“It was Elon Musk who had been coming up to Mr Depp’s penthouse during his two-week absence.”
