Johnny Depp told the story of the time he allegedly saw human fecal matter on the bed that he shared with ex-wife Amber Heard.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor 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 started Monday 11 April in Fairfax, Virginia.
On Wednesday afternoon, Depp took to the stand to attempt to clear his name against Heard’s accusations that he was a domestic abuser.
The actor started talking about an incident in April 2016 where Heard was “throwing multiple shots” at him. He told the court that she hit him twice in the face on this particular occasion and he left their home.
Depp then mentioned that Heard went away for a few days to attend Coachella with her friends. Depp told his security guard that he was going to go back to their shared home while she was gone, to collect some personal items and things of importance to him.
His security guard, Sean Bett, told Depp that right now “wasn’t a great time” for him to return to his home and proceeded to show the actor a photograph of his own bed with what appeared to be human fecal matter on it.
“it was a photograph of the bed, our bed…on my side of the bed…was human fecal matter…so i understood why it wasn’t a good time to go down there.”
“my INITIAL response to that was…i laughed…it was so BIZARRE and so grotesque.”
