A makeup brand, “The One” is disputing a claim by Amber Heard’s lawyer that Heard used its concealers to cover bruises during her marriage to the actor, Johnny Depp.
Depp is suing Heard, accusing her of ruining his career and reputation by insinuating in an op-ed article that she had been a victim of domestic violence at his hands. The defamation lawsuit asks for $50 million in damages.
Heard responded to Depp’s lawsuit with a $100 million counterclaim alleging he assaulted her before and during their marriage. Heard’s lawyer had said Heard used the Milani product during the couple’s marriage to cover what the lawyer said were bruises caused by Depp.
During his opening statement earlier in the week, Heard’s lawyer J. Ben Rottenborn had presented the makeup kit in court, “This was what she used,” he said, holding the compact in his hand. “She became very adept at it. You’re going to hear the testimony from Amber about how she had to mix the different colors for the different days of the bruises as they developed in the different coloring and how she would use to touch those up to be able to cover those.”
In a viral TikTok video posted Thursday, the drugstore makeup brand Milani said the product in question — the Milani Conceal + Perfect All-in-One Correcting Kit — was released in 2017, a year after Heard filed for divorce from Depp. The brand explained that the makeup kit displayed by Heard’s lawyer would not have been available before 2017, stressing that the alleged abuse would have occurred any time from 2012 to 2016.
“You asked us… let the record show that our Correcting Kit launched in 2017!” “Take note: Alleged abuse was around 2014-2016, got divorced 2016, makeup palette release date: December 2017”, the brand captioned the video, which is played to a remixed version of the “Backyardigans” song “International Super Spy.” The video has since been viewed 4.6 million times.
Depp and Heard were married in 2015 with only 20 to 25 people in attendance, People magazine reported. They divorced a year later after Heard appeared in court with a bruised face and requested a restraining order against Depp.
