Whitney Henriquez denies sister Amber Heard assaulted her despite video

Footage purporting to show physical injuries caused by Amber Heard’s alleged attack on her sister was played Friday at Johnny Depp’s explosive London libel trial.

The video shows Whitney Henriquez, 31, by a pool with her friends. In the clip, a woman can be seen inspecting Henriquez’s cheek and arm.

The woman asks, “Did you get in a fight or something?”

Henriquez replies, “Won’t talk about it anymore.”

“I can’t believe Amber beat your a–. I know you could beat her a–,” the woman goads. “Whitney, truth or dare? Did you really start the fight with your sister? Or did she start it? For real for real for real.”

Henriquez continues to demur: “We’re not going talk about that.”

“She really did whoop your butt,” the unidentified woman continues in the footage, which was filmed as part of a previously unseen reality TV show from 2006 or 2007.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star is suing The Sun newspaper over a 2018 article that branded him a “wife-beater” based on Heard’s allegations, which he has vehemently denied. Heard, he has said, was the violent party in their marriage.

Henriquez was questioned about the video after she returned to the stand Friday for her second day of testimony, according to the Evening Standard.

“First of all that was a really bad reality show,” Henriquez said. “We were referring to a verbal argument my sister and I got into.”

Henriquez denied that she had any injuries, and said the woman speaking in the video “was trying to make a very, very boring conversation more interesting.”

She said the other woman was just trying to “create a story and a narrative that wasn’t there.”

Depp’s lawyer David Sherborne told London’s High Court on Friday morning that his team had received the video from a confidential informant the previous night.

“We were contacted to explain that Ms. Amber Heard had a history of violence and attacking people,” Sherborne said. “Ms. Whitney was filmed with people commenting on the bruises on her face and body.”

He argued that the video contradicted Henriquez’s testimony Thursday that Heard, 34, had never been violent and that she was not afraid of her.

The sister told the court that she had witnessed Heard become violent only once. The “Aquaman” actress thought Depp, 57, was about to shove Henriquez down the stairs in 2015 and slugged him, the sister testified.

The “Edward Scissorhands” star then allegedly grabbed Heard by the hair and pummeled her, Henriquez had told the court.

The Sun’s lawyer, Sasha Wass, argued that the “undated” clip shouldn’t be admitted. It appears to be “some sort of reality TV program, which is flippant, certainly not serious,” she said. “This is a light-hearted exchange, there is no evidence of any injuries.”
