Isaac Baruch says he didn’t see Amber Heard with bruises

Isaac Brunch and Amber Heard

Johnny Depp’s friend Isaac Baruch testified that he never saw Amber Heard with bruises, swelling or makeup at the time she claimed to have been physically abused.

A friend of Johnny Deppnamed second witness At his defamation trial on Wednesday, he told a jury that he had never seen Depp’s ex-wife belongs to amber with bruises, swelling or noticeable makeup around the time Heard accused Depp of domestic violence.

“As I walk back, I say to Amber as I walk towards her, ‘He hit you?'” he shared Isaac Baruch, who said he’s known Depp since they were teenagers living in Florida. “And she’s like, ‘Yeah, he threw the phone at me and hit me.’ And I look, because I just saw her two feet away, and I go, ‘Where to?’ And she sticks her head out. She makes that face so I can look at the right side of her face.

Depp sued Heard over a 2018 Washington Post Editorial in which Heard described himself as a survivor of domestic violence. The comment didn’t mention Depp by name, but the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s attorney argues that readers could read between the lines of Heard’s public allegations years ago.

“That sounds crazy”

Depp’s childhood friend spoke at length about what he described as his sighting of Heard on May 22, 2016, which Baruch cited as his birthday and the month Heard filed for divorce.

Baruch said that he and Heard were standing near a door under the lights of the house and the sunlight outside.

“I look at one cheek, I look at her chin, I look at the other side of the face. I look at the whole thing. And I see nothing. I don’t see anything either. I don’t see a cut or bruise, swelling, redness. It’s just Amber’s face.”

After the inspection, Baruch said he made a joke: “Well, I don’t see anything, but maybe all the beauty from one side of your face to the other side of your face overshadows everything.”

“She laughed and she, you know, smiled,” he added. “And I just looked at everyone and said, ‘Hey, that sounds crazy.’ And I left and I said I have to go. And I hugged her and kissed that side of her face, kissed that side of her face and then I left, said goodbye.”

When asked during cross-examination whether he had kissed her on the cheek several times, Baruch reacted angrily: “No, I’m not European. I’m from Brooklyn.”

Visibly animated, Baruch choked back tears during his cross-examination by Heard’s attorney Elaine Charlson Bredehöft.

“Is it fair to say that you’re still mad at her?” Bredehoft asked him.

Baruch initially denied the premise of the question and began a tirade about the “false images” he felt Heard was spreading in the public of “blackmailing and blackmailing a man.”

“Yeah, that got me pretty frustrated, confused, angry and upset,” Baruch replied.

Baruch later reversed himself and said that he was “tired” from all these emotions.

“What I want is for her to go to the healing, he to the healing,” Baruch added, making it clear that for him that would mean Heard would retract any allegations of domestic violence against his childhood friend.

There is little sign of this happening on day two of the Depp and Heard trial, which will see dueling defamation claims and counterclaims being pursued and defended.

The trial began Tuesday, when Depp’s attorney told jurors that witnesses would tell them they saw Heard’s sister throw a “false punch” at Heard on surveillance footage. Baruch was the first eyewitness to make this claim, and he said that the Aquaman star and her sister Whitney heard both of them started laughing during the pantomime.

“Treat each other like gold”

Baruch mimed the pantomime on the witness stand, stood up, threw the snail and said “pow” under his breath.

As Baruch’s testimony began, he was reminiscing about happier times for the couple. Depp and Heard met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2009, they began dating years later, and married in 2015. They had all lived in penthouses in the Eastern Columbia building in downtown Los Angeles. Baruch made large-scale paintings there, for which Depp gave him $100,000.

Inside the building, Baruch said he remembered Heard as the woman with the “big teeth.” She and Depp appeared to have a “loving” relationship and “treated each other like gold.” He said he saw them two to three times a week, had never seen them physically violent, and observed them arguing “probably twice.”

Because of this, Baruch said he was stunned to learn “from the internet” that Heard was filing for divorce.

When asked by Depp’s lawyer if he was surprised by the news, Baruch replied: “Surprised is not the right word. It’s like, ‘What the hell is that? What the hell is going on?'”

The animosity between the pair no longer seems to phase Baruch, who seemed unconcerned when asked if Depp ever called Heard a “cunt”.

“In her face?” Baruch answered questioningly.

Baruch acknowledged that Depp Heard had mentioned this in a text, adding that Depp also used that word for himself.

“Do you remember Mr. Depp ever telling you that he hoped Amber’s rotting body would rot in the trunk of a Honda Civic?” asked Bredehöft.

After some distraction, Baruch confirmed that Depp wrote this.

Bredehoft also urged the witness to Depp’s generosity to him over the years, giving him $100,000 and letting him live in penthouses rent-free for years.

“He was a nice friend,” Baruch replied simply.

Around six years later, the scandal is still preoccupying Baruch, who said he couldn’t paint.
