A video showing Johnny Depp going off on Amber Heard and smashing up their kitchen has been played in court.
Depp launched a defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard in 2019, after the Aquaman star described herself as a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 article she penned in The Washington Post. The trial began Monday 11 April in Fairfax, Virginia.
The 58-year-old took to the stand to attempt to clear his name against Heard’s accusations that he was a domestic abuser.
On the third day of the actor’s testimony, disturbing video footage secretly recorded by Heard in their kitchen was show to the courtroom.
You can clearly hear Depp swearing as he kicks and slams kitchen cabinets and drawers. Heard appears to say:
“nothing HAPPENED this morning, you know that”
To which Depp replies:
“so nothing happened to you this morning?”
“yeah. you’re right, i just woke up and you were so sweet and nice. we’re not even fighting this morning. All i did was say sorry.”
Depp irritably responded:
“did something happen to you this morning. i don’t think so.”
“you want to see crazy, i’ll give you…crazy ”
“that’s crazy. Oh, you’re crazy”
The 58-year-old can then be seen filling a glass of what appears to be red wine to the top. Heard points at the almost empty bottle and asks:
“have you drunk this whole thing this morning?”
At this point, Depp notices the hidden phone/camera – grabs it and says:
“oh you got this going?
Depp then appears to throw the recording device down – but the couple can still be heard arguing.
