Camille then played a tape which had been recorded when the former couple met in San Francisco after Amber had filed for divorce. "I'm nothing to you, and I'll always be nothing to you," Johnnhy can be heard saying. "We'll never see each other again. You like looking at my *expletive* eyes? You will not see my eyes again."

She then turned to Amber's charitable donations. The actress admitted that she has yet to donate the full $7million divorce settlement she pledged to charity in 2016.

Under cross-examination, Amber testified that she has not been able to pay the charities - the ACLU and Children's Hospital Los Angeles - because Johnny had sued her.

However, Camille noted that Amber had the total sum of the settlement in her accounts for 13 months before Johnny announced he was taking her to trial.

Amber also testified that, because of tax benefits to her ex-husband, she didn't want him to donate the money to both charities directly but should send the money directly to her to do so.
