The Trial continues for actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard as they reach day 13. Depp is suing his ex wife for $50 million against claims that she made in 2018 of physical abuse. Depp gave a four day testimony against Heard claiming that he was the victim of physical abuse.
On the fourth day of the trial Depp played a voice recording of Heard saying, "The last time it got really heated between us, I really did think I was going to lose my life," referring to her reputation. Depp then replied, "I had a f--king can of mineral spirits thrown at my nose," then Heard saying that it was a fair fight. Depp claimed to have a severed finger after a fight broke out between the two and she allegedly threw a glass vodka bottle at him. "I didn't want to disclose that it had been Ms. Heard that had thrown a vodka bottle at me and then took my finger off," said Depp. "I didn't want to get her in trouble. I tried to just keep things as copacetic and easy as possible for everyone. I didn't want to put her into that mix."
After the recording was played, Depp said that he was a victim of physical abuse and then stepped down from the witness stand.
Depp is claiming that Heard is not a victim of physical abuse and that the allegations she made against him destroyed his career. Depp is famously known for his main role in Pirates of the Caribbean and claims that these allegations forced him out of the movie franchise. There has been plenty of evidence for the jurors to make their decision since Heard and Depp recorded a lot of videos and voice recordings of their arguments. In another voice recording, Heard admitted to hitting Depp which proves that he is a victim of abuse, but there was no evidence of an absence of retaliation from Depp, which he will have to disapprove in order to win the trial.
There were also harsh texts revealed in court, some where Depp said “Let’s burn Amber… Let’s drown her before we burn her!!!” and other texts of Depp calling her a “filthy whore.” Although this still does not prove that Depp laid a hand on Heard, they are still aggressive text messages. Depp also said in a text that he “f— up and went too far in our fight” Depp then stated that this was not referring to any physical abuse.
All whilst rebuttling any claims of physical abuse towards his ex-wife, Depp stated, "Never did I myself reach the point of striking Ms. Heard in any way nor have I ever struck any woman in my life." The two went to marriage counseling back in 2016 and their counselor Lauren Anderson also took the witness stand claiming that the couple "engaged in what I saw as mutual abuse."
The trial is set to last about six weeks and Heard will testify on the witness stand next.
