Worst Things Johnny Depp Said About Amber Heard At Her Defamation Trial

blank

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard both made damning claims about the other during the Virginia trial, with both making allegations of both verbal and physical abuse.

The defamation trial between Mr. Depp and Ms. Heard began on April 11 in Fairfax, Virginia, following Mr. Depp’s lawsuit against his ex-wife in March 2019. Mr. Depp argues that she defamed him in a comment published in December 2018 The Washington Post entitled “I spoke out against sexual violence – and faced the wrath of our culture. That needs to change.”

Over the course of three and a half days on the witness stand, Mr Depp testified at length about alleged physical and verbal abuse he suffered at Ms Heard’s hands, as well as her drug and alcohol use.

Here’s a rundown of some of the worst things Mr Depp has said about Ms Heard:

Audio of Heard admitting to punching Depp

Much of Mr Depp’s case hinges on his claim that Ms Heard was in fact the perpetrator in their relationship and he was the victim. During his testimony, his legal team attempted to prove that point by playing audio recordings of Ms Heard admitting to hitting Mr Depp.

Ms Heard and Mr Depp fell out over a physical altercation on tap, during which she said she punched Mr Depp but did not “adore” him. She also told Mr Depp to “grow up” and called him a “baby”. The recording was played in court on Wednesday.

“You told me to do it. They told me, ‘Do that,'” Ms. Heard said on the recording.

“You hit me in the damn thing,” Mr Depp said.

“You figured it all out,” Ms. Heard replied. “By the way, I didn’t hit you.”

“I’m sorry I didn’t give you a good slap in the face,” she added. “I hit you, I didn’t hit you. You are not defeated.”

“Don’t tell me how it feels to be hit,” Mr Depp said.

Ms Heard told Mr Depp: “You know you’ve been in a lot of fights and you’ve been at it for a long time”.

“You weren’t hit, you were hit,” she added.

“I’m sorry. I hit you like that, but I didn’t hit you. I didn’t fucking adorn you. I fucking hit you. I don’t know what the movement of my actual hand was. But you “You’re fine. I didn’t hurt you,” Ms. Heard said.

“What am I supposed to do? Do that? I’m not sitting here bitching about it, am I? You are – that’s the difference between me and you. You fuck baby,” she added.

As Mr Depp begins to reply, Ms Heard can be heard raising her voice and saying: “You’re such a baby, grow up Johnny”.

Mr Depp asked her if she had started a “physical fight”.

“I started a physical fight,” Ms Heard said.

“Yes you did, so I had to get out of there,” Mr Depp replied.

“You did the right thing. The big thing. You know what – you’re amazing,” Ms Heard said in a tone described by Mr Depp in court as sarcastic.

Finger injured in fight in Australia

Mr Depp detailed a fight with Ms Heard in which he claims she threw a vodka bottle at him and severed his finger.

“She then took this bottle and threw it at me,” Mr Depp said, demonstrating to the jury how he was sitting at the time. He said his fingers rested on the bar’s edge and the large vodka bottle “touched and shattered everywhere.”

“I didn’t feel any pain at first,” he said. “I felt heat and like something was dripping from my hand.”

“I was looking straight at my protruding bones,” he added. “Blood just flowed.”

Photo of feces on Depp’s bed

Mr Depp described seeing a photo of faeces on his bed days after an argument with Ms Heard.

Mr Depp went on to say that he did not see Ms Heard between April 22 and May 21, 2016 as he “received some messages that were so absurd, grotesque and cruel and then I was shown a picture of the problem “.

He said he was shown a photo of “our bed and there was human feces on my side of the bed so I understood why it wasn’t a good time to go there”.

Mr Depp said his “first reaction” was “laughter”.

“It was so out there, it was so bizarre and so grotesque that all I could do was laugh,” he added.

Heard’s alcohol and drug use

Mr Depp testified extensively about Ms Heard’s alcohol and drug use and once claimed she drank two bottles of wine a night.

His chief executive, Edward White, backed up that claim in his own testimony when he said that at the end of Ms Heard and Mr Depp’s marriage in 2016, they received a $160,000 wine bill from LA retailer Twenty Twenty Wine Merchants had.

The manager said Mr Depp’s score with the retailer has almost been paid off since the divorce, adding that Mr Depp still buys wine at Christmas to give as gifts.

“His wine bill is practically zero because he doesn’t drink much wine anymore,” said Mr. White.

The manager said Ms Heard liked a bottle of wine from Spanish winery Vega Sicilia, valued at around $500.

In preparation for Ms Heard’s 30th birthday party, a night when one of the arguments that led to the divorce took place, she ordered five bottles of the Spanish wine, along with eight bottles of a different variety.

Mr Depp said at his and Ms Heard’s wedding “several people were taking MDMA”.

He mentioned “Amber,” a “couple of friends of mine,” later adding, “her whole gang were all on MDMA.”

Comparison between Heard and Depp’s mother

Mr Depp compared his marriage to Ms Heard to his troubled relationship with his mother, saying it was an “endless parade of insults”.

He recalled how “degrading verbal abuse”, “insults” and “fooled” by Ms Heard often led to violent fights.

“When there is a dialogue between two people, both people must speak. But there was no way to insert a word. It was kind of rapid fire, an endless parade of insults,” he said from the stands, adding that he “didn’t get to be right and had a voice.”

“You start to realize that you’re sort of in a relationship with your mother. And I know that sounds perverted and stupid, but the fact of the matter is that some people look for weaknesses in people,” he added.

Heard urges Depp to tell the world

At the end of his testimony, Mr Depp was confronted with a recording in which Ms Heard urged him to “tell the world” that he was a victim of domestic violence.

In the recording, they can be heard saying: Ms Heard: “Tell them I, Johnny Depp, I’m a victim of domestic violence … and see how many people believe or side with you.”

One of Mr Depp’s lawyers asked him what his response was when asked if he was a victim of domestic violence.

“I said, ‘Yes, I am,'” Mr Depp replied.

In her 2018 comment, Ms Heard wrote: “Like many women, I was molested and sexually abused when I was college-age. But I was silent – I didn’t expect that filing complaints would bring justice. And I didn’t see myself as a victim.”

“Then two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic violence, and I felt the full brunt of our culture’s anger at women speaking out,” she added at the time.

While Mr Depp is not named in the piece, his legal team argues that it contains a “clear implication that Mr Depp is a domestic abuser”, which they say is “categorically and demonstrably false”. Mr Depp is seeking “not less than $50 million” in damages.

Ms Heard has filed a $100 million counterclaim against Mr Depp for harassment and immunity from his allegations.
