  • Amber Heard said James Franco visited her apartment after a fight she had with Johnny Depp.

  • Heard said Franco lived next door and she needed "as much friendship at that time as I could" get.

  • Depp accused Heard of cheating on him with Franco while the pair filmed "The Adderall Diaries."

Amber Heard testified that the actor James Franco visited her apartment late at night after a fight she had with Johnny Depp because she had "exhausted" her support network.

Lawyers for Depp asked Heard on Tuesday about the May 2016 late-night visit as part of Heard's cross-examination in the defamation trial for the lawsuit Depp filed against her.

"Because he was my friend and he lived next door, quite literally next door," she said of the reason he came to her apartment that night.

"And I quite literally exhausted my support network with my usual friends, and I was happy to welcome as much friendship at that time as I could possibly get," she added.

Heard was then asked what could have led to a video from that night in which Franco is seen laying his head on her shoulder.

"After seeing my face, he put his head on my shoulder," she said. "He touched the side of my face and responded to what he saw."

Heard previously testified that Depp kicked her to the floor of a private plane after he accused her of cheating on him with Franco earlier in 2016 while Franco and Heard were filming "The Adderall Diaries."

"He was mad at me for taking a job with James Franco," Heard said of Depp's reaction to the crime drama, Insider previously reported. "He hated, hated James Franco and was already accusing me of having a secret thing with him in my past because we had done 'Pineapple Express' together."

Heard said she told Depp of an intimate scene she'd filmed with Franco just before boarding a private flight with Depp. She said he was upset and "didn't sound coherent" and that she knew "something was wrong."

"Eventually it went from, 'Do you have something to tell me?' to, 'Do you want to tell me how much you liked it? Tell me did he slip a tongue,'" Heard said.

She testified that she then got up and walked to the front of the plane. She alleged Depp then began to throw things at her and walked up to her and slapped her in the face. She added that she moved once more before he kicked her.

"I felt this boot in my back. He just kicked me in the back. I fell to the floor," Heard said. "I caught myself on the floor and felt like I was looking at the floor of the plane for what felt like a long time."
