The divorce of actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard continues to shock viewers and followers of their work. The trial, in which the protagonist of Pirates of the Caribbean demands 50 million dollars from his ex-wife for having defamed him, it seems quite close after each one presented convincing evidence of the facts.
However, an unexpected twist came to the trial after it was shown that Depp had been a victim of violence in the relationship. The actor took the opportunity to ensure that he had never hit a woman.
“There were arguments and things like that, but I never got to the point of hitting Heard in any way,” Depp told the jury during the trial in Fairfax County Circuit Court in Virginia, near Washington. “I have not hit any woman in my life,” he asserted.
Last Thursday the actor revealed some of the attacks he suffered: Heard left him fecal waste on his bed, when he returned home for some belongings after agreeing to the separation.
It also showed that he had been attacked with a bottle, which cut off part of one of his fingers. In another episode he pointed out that the actress put out a cigarette in the actor’s face.
This testimony undoubtedly fell in favor of Depp, however, there are still many issues to discuss, as some controversial messages were also known between Depp and nurse Debbie Lloyd, who worked for a time with the ex-partner.
Lloyd had already been questioned in 2018 in the trial for the lawsuit that Depp imposed against the newspaper The Sun for having stated that he had mistreated his ex-partner and that he was a perpetrator of domestic violence.
However, reading the text messages between the celebrity and her medical staff shocked viewers because they seemed “risque” and “unprofessional.”
In one of them, Depp canceled the date they had and in it he apologizes to her. “Hi, honey, I’m so sorry about today. I thought you were Stephen, who I don’t particularly want to see because of his loss of loyalty and his loss of memory,” the message reads.
In addition, he claims that Stephen has done everything to affect him. “He also breaks into my fucking house like it’s fucking Grand Central Station. I’m really sorry if I bothered you. If you like you can give me some morphine to see if my tongue and my penis touch. With all my love, J”, concludes the message.
Upon reading this message, the actor smiled, which was focused on by the camera.
The nurse claimed that the messages date back to 2015, when Depp lost part of his finger on his visit to Australia with his ex-partner, in what the actor claims was an attack by Heard with vodka bottles.
As for other incidents or messages with Depp, the nurse only said that she keeps medical notes and conversations in which the actor told her personal and emotional issues of his youth traumas.
Saying goodbye to her, the nurse stated that Depp was very loving and their last chat was very gentle. “Take good care of yourself, dear. I will never be able to thank you for what you did for me. From the drug addict side and from the broken heart you have been my savior, literally. We’ll be seeing each other, darling. I love you so much little Debbie and so do all my crew.”
The trial is due to the lawsuit Depp filed against Heard for defamation after the actress wrote a column for Washington Post in December 2018 in which he described himself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.”
The actress never named Depp, whom she met in 2009 on the set of the film The Rum Diarybut he sued her for insinuating that he was an aggressor and asks for 50 million dollars in damages.
