The 36-year-old actress, sued for defamation by her ex-husband in a US court, explained that she joined the actor in early March 2015, who was shooting the fifth part of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” saga.
But shortly after his arrival, a debate suddenly erupts. “As we turned on the light, he started screaming,” she said. He allegedly threw bottles and cans at her, grabbed her by the neck and threatened to disfigure her with a broken bottle, slammed her against a wall and then removed her nightgown.
“I am behind the wall and he is shouting at me that he hates me, that I have ruined his life,” she told the public, unable to hold back tears. “He told me ‘heck, I’ll kill you'” before inserting a bottle of alcohol into her vagina, according to her.
“All I felt was this pain,” she continued, claiming she had remained motionless because she did not know “whether the bottle with which he (she) penetrated it had been broken.”
It was during this scene, she said, that the 58-year-old actor cut off his finger. He claims it was his ex-wife who cut him off by throwing him a bottle, which Amber Heard denies.
“I loved this man so much, but he was so toxic that I could not stop him from hitting me,” she said, when asked by her lawyer why she had not left her husband after those three days of hell.
“He hated James Frankon”
The couple then decided to start therapy as a couple, but the brutally enamored debates continued until she made a denunciation of domestic violence in May 2016. She had dropped these charges during the divorce proceedings, which ended in early 2017.
The actress also claimed that Johnny Depp, under the influence of cannabis and alcohol, kicked her on a private jet between Boston and Los Angeles, accusing her of having an affair with actor James Franco, with whom she was shooting a movie in May 2014. “He hated, hated James Francon and already accused me of having something to do with him” in a previous film, she said.
“He hit me in the back, nobody said anything, nobody did anything,” she said, referring to the star’s bodyguards and companions aboard the plane.
A “toxic” relationship with Johnny Depp
On the second day of her trial in Fairfax, near Washington, she went on to show how her relationship had become “toxic” to her ex-husband, despite numerous objections and interruptions from Johnny Depp’s lawyers, who had the ability to anger Judge Penney. Azcarate.
Idyll, born in 2009, according to her, had quickly given way to the actor’s jealousy attacks, which culminated in beatings and incitement by the consumption of various drugs and alcohol.

Despite “a million promises to heal and be sober,” Johnny Depp regularly returned to his addictions, she explained.
The 58-year-old actor listened intently to his estranged wife, sometimes reacting with slight denials or whispering to his lawyer.
Avoiding the look of Amber Heard
Since the beginning of the trial, he has avoided as much as possible the look of Amber Heard, who must continue her testimony when the trial resumes on May 16.
Johnny Depp is seeking $ 50 million in damages from his ex-wife. He accuses her of ruining her reputation and career after claiming in December 2018 on a platform in the Washington Post that she had suffered domestic violence in 2016, without however quoting her ex-husband.
The actor, who testified for four days in late April, denies ever raising his hand against Amber Heard and assures it was what was violent. He admitted heavy use of drugs and alcohol, which he claims has been under control most of the time.
The actress, especially on the “Justice League” and “Aquaman” posters, counterattacked and claimed $ 100 million.
