Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s court case in London on July 9, 2020, saw the actor reveal what he described as one of the cruelest things his ex-wife did to him.
Depp is suing News Group Newspapers and Dan Wootton for calling him a “wife-beater” as he denies ever been violent towards Amber Heard.
In the trial which took place yesterday, one of the things that came up was Depp and Heard’s trip to an island in the Bahamas in August 2014.
It has been alleged that the 57-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star attacked her during the trip while he was withdrawing from the prescription painkiller Roxicodone, something he denies.
In his witness statement, Depp said that Heard “often intervened and withheld medicine from me” while they were on the island. He called it “one of the cruelest things she has ever done”, according to the Daily Mail.
He told the court that he was left “sobbing like a child” on the floor after Heard denied him the medicine.
Text messages between Heard and Depp’s doctor and nurse were shown, in which she allegedly asked for help, claiming that he had pushed her.
Depp stated in court:
I can only say from my point of view I was in no physical condition to push anyone. I’m denying I pushed her. I’m going to suggest that the testimony is fabricated… I believe it’s part of the dossier that was an insurance policy for her.”
A lawyer who was questioning Depp during the trial said that Heard was “withholding drugs you were not supposed to have”, and the actor replied: “Why would she have drugs that I was supposed to have?”
During the court proceeding, Heard was spotted holding hands with her friend, Bianca Butti.
