Amid the controversial libel lawsuit between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, the actress was cross-examined by Depp’s legal team about a late-night visit by James Franco.

For those left in the dark, Heard filed for divorce from Depp just days after Franco visited the star on his rooftop in May 2016.

Here is everything you need to know.

James Franco visited Amber Heard late at night while Johnny Depp was out of town.

In her final statement, on May 17, Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez questioned Amber Heard about her relationship with actor James Franco.

Vasquez’s questions seem to imply that Heard and Franco are romantically involved.

Heard and Franco previously co-starred in the 2008 comedy film Pineapple Express and later in the 2015 crime drama The Adderall Diaries.

Vasquez offered footage of the time Franco entered the elevator of Depp’s attic. In the clip, we can see Franco resting his head on Heard’s shoulder in a supposedly loving gesture.

The video in question was timestamped after 23:00 on 22 May 2016.

Amber Heard talks about her relationship with James Franco

During cross-examination, Amber Heard insisted that she and James Franco were just friends and neighbors.

He was then asked about the reason for Franco’s visit at 11:00 pm.

Heard responded by saying he was tired of his usual network of support friends. He added that he was excited to welcome as many fellowships as possible at the time.

Heard was soon asked why they were ‘relaxing’ as they went up to the loft, as seen in the CCTV clip.

“When he saw my face, he put his head on my shoulder,” he said. He touched the side of my face and responded to what he saw.’

In his earlier testimony, Depp had already stated that he suspected Heard of having an affair with James Franco.

On the contrary, Heard claimed in his deposition last week that Depp ‘hates’ Franco.

“Since we did Pineapple Express together, he’s been accusing me of sneaking things out with him in the past,” she said.

Heard reportedly dated Franco and Elon Musk briefly in 2017. Both have their names on Heard’s witness list, but neither is scheduled to take a stand and testify.

But Heard’s sister and actress Ellen Barkin is scheduled to testify in Heard’s favor this week.
