- Makeup brand Milani is contesting the fact that Amber Heard used one of its products to cover up her domestic violence bruises.
- Heard’s attorney claimed she used the company’s products to cover her bruises during her marriage to actor Johnny Depp.
- Milani said on TikTok that her all-in-one correction kit was released a year after the couple divorced.
A make-up brand disputes a claim by actress lawyer Amber Heard, who said she used one of the company’s products to cover up her bruises from domestic violence during her marriage to actor Johnny Depp.
In a viral TikTok video posted on Thursday, drugstore makeup brand Milani said the product in question — the Milani Conceal + Perfect All-In-One Correction Kit — wasn’t released until 2017, a year after Heard filed for divorce from Depp. The video has since been viewed 4.6 million times.
“You asked us…that the record shows that our patch kit was launched in 2017!” the brand captioned the video, which plays to a remixed version of the Backyardigans’ song “International Super Spy.”
The video comes after Heard’s lawyer claimed she used it to cover her bruises following Depp’s alleged physical abuse during their marriage.
During his opening statement earlier in the week, Heard’s attorney, J. Ben Rottenborn, presented the makeup kit to the court, according to Yahoo! News.
“That’s what she used,” he said, holding the compact in his hand. “She’s gotten really good at it. You’re going to hear Amber’s testimony of how she had to mix the different colors for the different days of the bruises as they developed into the different colors and how she touched them up so she could cover them up.”
Depp and Heard tied the knot in 2015 with just 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.
Depp is currently suing Heard, claiming she ruined his career and reputation by insinuating that she had been the victim of domestic violence at his hands. The defamation lawsuit seeks $50 million in damages.
Heard responded to Depp’s lawsuit with a $100 million counterclaim alleging he repeatedly assaulted her before and during their marriage.
