Valentino and Amber: The Intimate Relationship Tale

The 36-year old American actress started dating the Mexican star Valentino Lanus in 2006. They both were introduced through a mutual acquaintance. After going out casually for some time, the two began dating when she was 20-years-old. The then- 31-year old Valentino was already a known celebrity in Mexican soap operas.

The couple decided to keep their relationship extremely private to avoid paparazzi and unwanted questions. Their relationship lasted for 10 months before the duo decided to split. The reason is not known but several reliable sources confirm their relationship ended because Lanus forwarded a marriage proposal to Amber who did not accept it as it was an obstacle to her advancing career.

The ongoing trial between the Aquaman star and the 58-year-old actor is intended to resolve a $50 million defamation lawsuit Depp filed against Head claiming that she devastated his career with a 2018 Washington Post op-ed.

Heard has identified herself as a domestic and sexual violence survivor. On the other hand, Depp’s legal team has portrayed Heard as a physically and verbally abusive liar. Heard portrayed Depp as a drug-fuelled abuser and also alleged that he sexually abused her with a glass bottle.

The trial will resume on Monday with testimonies from renowned actress Ellen Barkin will be testifying along with Heard’s sister Whitney Henriquez. It’s being said that Ellen’s testimony will strengthen Amber’s case.

Amber is diagnosed with Histrionic Personality Disorder per the crucial testimony from Dr Shannon Curry. Final arguments will be presented on May 27. What do you think about Amber and Valentino’s relationship?
