Amber Heard tells the bar of the “drinking” and scenes of violence with Johnny Depp

Amber Heard continued Thursday to detail the multiple episodes of violence that she attributes to her ex-husband Johnny Depp, who is suing her for defamation, during a hearing disturbed by the constant objections of the American actor’s lawyers.

The 36-year-old actress began Wednesday in court in Fairfax, United States, to recount with emotion her meeting in 2009 with the star of “Pirates of the Caribbean”, then their idyll which had quickly turned into repeated arguments, fueled according to her by the consumption of drugs and alcohol.

She continued Thursday, despite multiple objections and interruptions from Johnny Depp’s team of lawyers, who were more aggressive after showing restraint the day before, which angered Judge Penney Azcarate.

Imperturbable, Amber Heard continued to recount her relationship deemed toxic with her ex-husband, which according to her alternated marks of love and fits of jealousy culminating in blows.

“I felt like the luckiest woman in the world,” she said of the time her father revealed to her that Johnny Depp had asked his permission to marry him, in September 2013, and she agreed. “cried” with joy when he asked for her hand.

– Negotiations –

But she also emotionally detailed Johnny Depp’s frequent all-day ‘drinking’ which disrupted his acting work, or his ‘hatred’ for actor James Franco, whom he suspected of having had an affair with Amber Heard on the set of a movie in May 2014.

She also assured that she was struck at this time “for the first time in front of someone else” by Johnny Depp, under the influence of cannabis and alcohol on a private plane between Boston and Los Angeles.

“He hit me in the back, nobody said anything, nobody did anything,” she said, referring to the star’s bodyguards and companions on board the aircraft.

After this episode, Johnny Depp apologized and started a detox program and then a cure on his private island in the Bahamas, she said.

“He said the monster would never come back, I thought things would change.”

But the cure ultimately doesn’t work.

She also testified to having negotiated with Johnny Depp — to avoid conflicts — the conditions for filming the film “Magic Mike”, which tells the story of a group of strippers: “I was not going to play a erotic character, little or no makeup, no sexy clothes, no kiss scene, no sex scene…”

– “Typical excuses” –

Amber Heard commented on several text messages exchanges with Johnny Depp dating back to late 2014. In one of them, he regrets being a “savage” and that “the devil (is) all around” him.

“It was his typical apology when he went overboard, physically,” she explained.

In December 2014, “we were saying horrible things to each other and, unfortunately, when Johnny started hitting me, he had the advantage,” she said.

Johnny Depp, 58, sometimes reacted Thursday by shaking his head “no” or whispering with his lawyer. As since the start of the trial, he avoided Amber Heard’s gaze as much as possible.

He is claiming $50 million in damages from his ex-wife, whom he accuses of having ruined his reputation and career by writing a column in the Washington Post in December 2018. She claimed to have been the victim of domestic violence in 2016, without however citing her former husband.

The actor, who testified for four days at the end of April, denies having ever raised his hand on Amber Heard and assures that it was she who was violent. He admitted to heavy drug and alcohol use, which he claims to have been under control most of the time.

The actress, notably on the poster for “Justice League” and “Aquaman”, counter-attacked and claimed 100 million dollars.

She claims to have suffered “physical abuse and assault” before and during their tumultuous marriage which lasted only two years, from 2015 to 2017.

In May 2016, Amber Heard sued her husband for domestic violence before dropping these charges during divorce proceedings.
