Johnny Depp has denied hitting Amber Heard in court

Hollywood star Johnny Depp (58) testified for the first time in the defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard (35) and denied ever hitting his former partner.

He says: “There were fights and things like that, but it never got to the point where I would have hit Ms. Heard in any way.” On Tuesday he was heard before the court in Fairfax near the US capital Washington. “I’ve never hit a woman in my life.”
