This is the second day in which Johnny Depp testifies against his ex-wife Amber Heard during his defamation trial in Fairfax, Virginia. Johnny Depp testifies during his defamation trial in the Fairfax County Circuit Courthouse in Fairfax, Virginia on Tuesday. Amber Heard stands by as the jury disperses at the Fairfax County Circuit Court on Monday, as a lunch break is about to begin.
After taking the witness stand in a Virginia courtroom on Tuesday, actor Johnny Depp returned to the witness stand on Wednesday. He had previously testified against his ex-wife Amber Heard, whom Depp has sued for defamation and damages of $50 million after she accused him of domestic abuse.
Under questioning from his attorney, Depp described to the jury how he and Heard would get into long verbal fights, in which she would repeatedly criticize him for being a bad father and use a “rapid-fire, sort of endless parade of insults” against him. Depp was found not guilty of all charges against him.
“I realized I was completely incorrect – about everything,” Depp admitted. He later went on to say, “Ms. Heard couldn’t have been more wrong. It simply did not take place.”
Following a disagreement over what was said, he claims that both of them began videotaping their arguments. The recordings, he claimed, were made with the intent of “perform[ing] for the tape” and that Heard had attempted to secretly record him, claiming that “there was something slightly rotten about the state of Denmark, to put it mildly.”
Depp has denied abusing Heard yet again, and he has spoken about drugs.
Depp reaffirmed that he never physically abused Tried, which is a crucial aspect in the case, which is currently being heard in a Fairfax County courthouse, according to court documents.
“Violence was unnecessary,” he stated emphatically. “Why would you hit someone in order to persuade them to your point of view? I don’t believe it is effective.”
In court, Johnny Depp asserted that he has never struck a woman in his entire life.
In his testimony on Tuesday, Depp maintained that he “never myself to the point of striking Ms. Heard in any way, nor have I ever struck any woman in my life,” a statement that he reiterated on Wednesday.
On both days, Depp testified about the beginnings of his relationship with Heard, his drug usage, and his upbringing in Los Angeles, California. Depp also revealed on Wednesday that Heard drank heavily and occasionally took drugs such as ecstasy (MDMA) and mushrooms.
Depp spoke about his attempts to enter rehab and to rid himself of his addiction to booze and drugs. However, he claims that when he urged Heard to stop drinking, she refused to comply.
According to Depp, a fight over a post-nuptial agreement resulted in a bloody injury.
When the pair tied the knot in early 2015, they did not have a prenuptial agreement in place, according to Depp. It was his attempt to arrange a post-nuptial agreement with Heard that disturbed her, according to Depp, who claimed that it caused a run of arguments in Australia, where Depp was filming the newest installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. According to Depp, Heard arrived in Australia in March 2015.
His wife’s constant refrain of “I’m not even in your will” astonished him. “What truly surprised me was that she kept saying,” “I thought it was a strange thing to say at the time.”
Depp said that he locked himself in a bathroom in order to get away from Heard, a circumstance that he detailed numerous times during his trial.
The actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are currently engaged in a slander lawsuit.
Depp then walked to the bar in the property where he was staying and poured himself a couple of shots of vodka to drink. He claims that when Heard discovered him, she tossed the bottle at him. According to Depp, the bullet “simply flew straight passed my head and crashed through the wall behind me.”
Then he went and got himself another, bigger bottle of vodka and poured himself still another drink. His chair was moved, then Heard snatched the bottle and tossed it at him as well, causing it to strike his hand, he claimed.
Depp admitted that it took him a few moments to discover that his finger had been gravely injured while he was positioned in court to rehearse a scene in which his hand was sitting on the edge of the bar.
In Depp’s words, the bottle “came into contact” with his finger and shattered. He then noticed that the tip of his finger had been severed, and he could see his bones sticking out straight in front of him.
He claimed that blood began to come out. He described it as “the closest he has ever gone to having a mental breakdown.” “Nothing made sense,” Depp remarked.
“I began to write on the walls with my blood – my own blood — in order to express myself. He described them as “little reminders from our history” that symbolized “falsehoods that I had caught her in.””
A hand injury to Depp made headlines in 2015 when it forced a lengthy delay in the filming of The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which was attributed to a “off-set incident,” according to the film’s producers.
During his visit to the local emergency room, Depp admitted that he lied to doctors “because I didn’t want to disclose” what had transpired.
The case was prompted by Heard’s essay on domestic violence.
In December of 2018, Heard published an op-ed in The Washington Post in which she expressed her support for the Violence Against Women Act. She drew on her own personal experiences as a survivor of sexual assault and domestic abuse to write the piece.

“The op-ed plainly was about Ms. Heard’s purported victimization after she publicly accused her former husband, Johnny Depp, of domestic abuse in 2016, when she appeared in court with an apparently battered face and obtained a temporary restraining order against Mr. Depp,” according to a court complaint filed by Depp in 2019.
Depp is suing Heard for defamation on three counts, citing an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post that was published on the website and in the print edition of the newspaper, as well as Heard’s tweeting a link to the article on her Twitter account.
Depp is seeking at least $50 million in compensation damages as well as a punitive award of at least $350,000, as well as attorneys’ fees and court costs on behalf of the plaintiffs.
