Why Milani Cosmetics Was Named in the Amber Heard vs. Johnny Depp Trial
Milani Cosmetics has suddenly found itself at the centre of the Amber Heard vs. Johnny Depp trial. Depp is currently suing Heard for $50 million in a defamation lawsuit over a 2018 op-ed piece she wrote for The Washington Post. As a result, private details surrounding their marriage and divorce have now become public, including the makeup Heard allegedly used to cover bruises she claims were inflicted by Depp.
During his opening statement, Heard’s lawyer J. Ben Rottenborn showed the court Milani Cosmetics’ All In One Correcting Kit, which he claimed the actor used to cover her bruises until she filed for divorce from Depp in 2016. “This was what she used,” Rottenborn said, as reported by Yahoo. “She became very adept at it. You’re going to hear the testimony from Amber about how she had to mix the different colours for the different days of the bruises as they developed in the different colouring and how she would use [this] to touch those up to be able to cover those.”
After the palette was shown in the courtroom, Milani Cosmetics weighed in on the claims in a now-viral TikTok. The video, which is set to a remixed version of The Backyardigans’ “International Super Spy,” details the timeline surrounding Depp and Heard’s relationship, noting that Heard’s lawyer is alleging she carried the correcting kit in her purse throughout her marriage until she filed for divorce in 2016. However, the company then goes on to note its All In One Correcting Kit wasn’t released until 2017. “You asked us . . . let the record show that our Correcting Kit launched in 2017!” the company captioned the video. In the comments section, Milani added, “We are here to provide the facts of the case.”
Heard and Depp’s case is ongoing, and additionally, Heard is countersuing Depp for $100 million.
