Johnny Depp reportedly has almost two dozen witnesses, including security staff, police officers, and his housekeeper, in support against the domestic violence allegations from estranged wife Amber Heard.

The 53-year-old Mortdecai actor is said to be prepared for the upcoming trial where the actress, who has accused him of leaving her bruised when he threw an iPhone at her face following a row in May, is seeking to have a permanent restraining order against him and has a number of people ready to testify that her claims are false, reported TMZ.

The two police officers, who responded to a 911 call following the alleged altercation will testify they saw no evidence of injury to the actress, or anything broken in their home.

Five concierges from their apartment building, who all saw Heard between May 21, the night the alleged attack happened, and May 27 and have all stated in depositions they saw no injuries to the actress’ face.

Two security guards who were in the unit on May 21 will go on record to testify Depp did not hit his spouse, while the former couple’s housekeeper Hilda Vargas will also give a mystery testimony.

The witness list states, “Ms Vargas will testify about a discovery in the home.”

In addition, Heard’s publicist, Jodi Gottleib is also on the list, with Depp’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, previously trying to take her deposition but she was unavailable.

The press officer’s testimony is said to be important because she was believed to be present during discussions between the actress and her legal representative.

Heard herself will also be called as a hostile witness.
