Amber Heard decided to divorce Johnny Depp in May 2016 because violence had become “normal” for him and made him fear for his life, he said Monday during the defamation process initiated by his ex-husband and that was resumed after a week of pause .
The 36-year-old actress evoked several violent episodes before the court of Fairfax, in Virginia, between them a crisis of jealousy during a stay in France. According to Heard, Depp couldn’t stand that he had shot a sex scene in a movie and didn’t believe him when he told him a stunt double had been used for the scene.
After one last discussion violence in May 2016, during which the actor allegedly threw a phone in his face, finally decided to file for divorce after a year of marriage, he said.

But “the monster was that thing that was now normal and not the exception. violence was normal now,” she explained, evoking the two faces of her ex-husband, who became aggressive under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
His lawyers showed photos in which he appeared to have the right part of his face numb from the blow of the phone.
On May 27, 2016, she sued her then-husband for domestic violence and requested a restraining order against him to “change the locks” on their apartment so she “can sleep well.”
“I was losing my hair, I was losing weight, I was very sick, I had herpes, I couldn’t sleep, I woke up at night in the middle of panic attacks,” she said.
Depp’s defense, which promise to be ruthlesscould start Monday afternoon.
The star of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise accuses his ex-wife of ruining his reputation and career by claiming in a 2018 Washington Post article that he had suffered domestic violence two years earlier, without citing Depp, however.
The actor claims 50 million dollars in reparation. She countered by asking for double.
The trial between these two celebrities is broadcast live on television and daily, and supporters of the two actors gather in court in the small town near Washington.
“It’s like a soap opera,” Nancy Mowery, who comes from Pennsylvania, told AFP, while for Alethea Gnanakan, a student in Virginia, “both (ex-husbands) have suffered.”
The legal battle has also reached social networks. The first four weeks of the trial drew a “toxic” relationship, with very crude details delivered by the ex-partner.
Their fights reached their climax during a trip to Australia, in March 2015, when Amber Heard claims to have been beaten and sexually assaulted by her husband.
The 58-year-old actor, who gave his testimony in late April, denies hitting Heard and claims she was the violent one.
Very quiet and sometimes charming, he admitted to frequently using drugs and alcohol, but claims to have controlled his consumption most of the time.
According to financial experts presented by his lawyers, the article would have caused him to lose about 22.5 million dollars of expected income for the sixth film of “Pirates of the Caribbean”, from which he was removed.
The debates should continue until May 27. Then seven jurors will retire to deliberate.
