Amber Heard is a "compulsive liar" and a "wholly unreliable witness" who has changed her story and swapped key dates in a bid to manipulate the case, Johnny Depp's lawyers have argued at the High Court.In the final day of speeches and submissions, Depp's barrister David Sherborne told the court that Heard's "lack of" credibility was key to the case, drawing on several examples - including the unexpected introduction of Kate Moss into the case.
