Johnny Depp once called Amber Heard a “ct” in Text: Court

FAIRFAX, Va. — Johnny Depp repeatedly called Amber Heard a “ct,” and once texted his girlfriend that he hoped her “rotting corpse would rot in the damn trunk of a Honda Civic,” according to text messages read in court Wednesday .

The allegations came on the second day of testimony in Depp’s bombshell defamation lawsuit against Heard, his ex-wife.

Heard’s attorney Elaine Bredehoft read a series of texts while she interrogated Isaac Baruch, Depp’s close friend of 42 years, who was summoned by the actor’s attorneys as a second witness in court.

“This ct ruined such a cool life we ​​had for a while,” Depp Baruch said in a 2016 text read by Bredehoft.

Baruch, who has lived rent-free in Depp’s multi-million dollar property for years, tried to brush off the lyrics when asked if Depp often referred to Heard using such strong language.

“He called me ‘ac-t’ in a text message,” he replied, making the negotiators in the courtroom gallery laugh.

Depp, 58, is seeking $50 million in damages from 35-year-old Heard, who he alleges defamed when she wrote in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed that she was a victim of “sexual violence.” While Depp wasn’t named in the comment, the actor claims it ruined his reputation and career after it was widely believed Heard wrote about their five-year relationship.

More than 50 Depp fans once again poured into the Fairfax, Va., courtroom and gave Heard an icy reception as she walked in wearing a black suit with gold trimmings.

One was barred from re-entering the courtroom after the hearing was suspended, a court official told The Post.

In the hallway, five young women rushed up to Baruch and said, “Tell Johnny we love him.”

In response to questions from Depp’s attorney Benjamin Chew, Baruch spoke at length about the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s generosity, saying that Depp had given him $100,000 over the years and that he lived in a penthouse on the top floor of the Eastern Columbia Building next door live to the couple .

Baruch said he once loved Heard, who was “totally respectful and gracious to me.”

“She has great teeth. She treated me with absolute respect,” he added.

Baruch testified he never saw Depp physically abuse Heard – but he said he saw Heard change the locks in her home after she claimed she had fought with Depp and that he had ‘become violent’ .

Baruch said he saw no bruises or blemishes on Heard’s face and told jurors she wasn’t wearing makeup.

Heard’s attorney worked to refute this claim, pointing out Baruch’s lack of knowledge of makeup and Heard’s specific routine.

“Do you know if Amber was wearing concealer, foundation, powder or tint that day,” attorney Elaine Bredehoft asked.

“I don’t know,” he replied.

Baruch broke down in tears during cross-examination, saying that his feelings towards Heard had changed, and fell into a screed when asked if he was angry with her.

Heard wrote in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed that she was a victim of “sexual violence.” Depp claims it ruined his reputation, although he hasn’t been named.

“About the fake photos that were taken and put in tabloids? And about the fake narrative? And about how she tries to blackmail and blackmail a man? Yeah, that kind of made me… frustrated, confused, angry,” he said.

Before Baruch testified, Depp’s sister, Christi Dembrowski, was called to the witness stand for cross-examination by defense attorney Ben Rottenborn.

During her testimony Wednesday, it was revealed that she once asked Heard about her brother’s pill addiction during her marriage to the actor – at one point declaring “he needs help.”

When asked why she reached out to Heard in 2014 and what she meant by “he needs help,” Dembrowski said she was only concerned about her brother’s addiction to a specific prescription pain reliever.

Rottenborn also asked about emails from 2014 between Dembrowski and Depp’s doctor, David Kipper, who helped the Black Mass actor with his addiction.

Depp “took no responsibility for his behavior,” the doctor wrote to his sister, who works as his manager and helps run Depp’s film production company Infinitum Nihil.

“Her brother was unwell and pessimistic that he would ever be able to stop using drugs,” Kipper wrote.

His sister claimed she was never as concerned about her brother’s drug abuse as Heard was.
