Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation lawsuit has been made public via social media and it has instigated careful analysis about the entire proceedings by their fans. Now, in a rather shocking turn of events, Rihanna was also dragged into discussion.
Riri who had been a victim of Chris Brown's attack on her throughout their relationship suffered several bruises and injuries on her. Now, the singer’s latest photo is being compared to Amber Heard’s photo from her talk show appearance right after the day she claimed to have been abused by Depp.
The Aquaman actress said that she concealed her wounds caused by Depp, and it was compared to the Umbrella singer's attack photo, by Johnny Depp supporters claiming, "This is what real abuse looks like."
During Depp and Heard's defamation trial, social media has been split into two teams: their supporters believe their side of the story and are showering them with love and support.
"For those saying #IStandWithAmberHeard this is what real abuse looks like," a Twitter user who happens to be a part of the Johnny Depp team captioned a photo of Rihanna and Amber Heard. "Being 'beaten within an inch of your life' and only having a Botox/filler bruise on your eye is NOT how you would look. #AmberHeardlsALiar"
Heard’s now-viral photo is from her appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, right after Johnny Depp's beating on her face the day before. She supposedly concealed her wounds with 'heavy makeup' following the controversial incident.
"I got worried that I wouldn’t be able to hide the bruising and swelling. I iced it all night and the next day checked in the mirror to see if I could get away with it, meaning hiding it, so I could make an appearance. I gambled and thought maybe I could pull it off, I had my hair and makeup team come. They worked around it, meaning worked around the lesions on my head with the hair spray because that stings. They worked around the bruising by covering it with heavy makeup, heavier makeup than normal bruise covering makeup," the Aquaman star stated during the trial.
"I remember my lip was still bleeding and swollen, so we did this really thick super heavy matte red lipstick," Heard said, "and I remember very well at the time that we had no choice in color, and that was one of my favorite colors to wear."
After all of the discussion about which injuries are real and which are not, one individual wrote on Twitter criticizing Heard's statements, "Amber tries to explain the red lipstick was to hide the damage... but you cannot hide swelling from a brutal attack, nor cuts from a man pounding on you with huge metal rings on his fingers... or cuts all over from slipping in broken glass. Chance of Amber lying: 99.9%."
