Johnny Depp has recalled the time his “possessed” ex-wife lashed out at him and severed his finger during an argument.
Taking the stand at his blockbuster defamation trial against Amber Heard, the Pirates of the Caribbean star recalled the 2015 moment he and Amber got into a huge fight over a prenup during their trip to Australia where the actor was filming.
While Heard insisted that she was held captive by her ex-husband for three days and that he severed the tip of his finger during the “hostage situation,” Depp has now testified that it was Amber who severed his finger during a heated argument.
“All I could do was try to calm her down and say I was not out to screw her over or put her in a position that was uncomfortable. It did not work, it escalated and turned into madness, chaos, violence,” Depp said of the time he tried to calm Heard after she allegedly got furious following a meeting about their post-nuptial agreement with his lawyers.
“She was irate, she was possessed. When I tried to remove myself as I normally would, as she’s hammering me with brutal words. Pardon my language but I remember that it wasn’t nice.
“Sort of being called an a** kisser to lawyers or a pu**y that didn’t fight for her or stand up for her. I tried to remove myself from the situation but to no avail.
“The house they’d rented for me in Australia was quite a large place. I think I ended up locking myself in at least nine bedrooms, bathrooms that day as she was banging on the doors and screaming obscenities and wanting to have a physical altercation.”
The actor went on to recall the incident that got him rushed to the ER: “I went behind the bar, I grabbed a bottle of vodka, and a shot glass and sat at the bar and I poured myself two or three stiff shots of vodka, first taste of alcohol in a long time.
“When she came down to the bar and found me there started screaming ‘you’re drinking again,’ the monster and all that. She walked up to me and reached and grabbed the bottle of vodka and stood back and hurled it at me. It just went right past my head and smashed behind me.”
He added: “I stood up and walked behind the bar and there was a larger bottle of vodka, the kind with the handle. I grabbed that and sat in my seat, opened the bottle and poured myself a shot and drank it.
“Miss Heard was flinging insults left right and center. She grabbed that bottle and threw that at me. I was leaning like this in the chair. First bottle went, got the other bottle, shot. Takes second bottle. I’m in this position again. My hand is on the edge of the bar like that, leaning over.
“She threw the large bottle and it made contact and shattered everywhere and I honestly didn’t feel the pain at first at all, I felt no pain. What I felt was heat and I felt as if something were dripping down my hand and then I looked down and realized that the tip of my finger had been severed. I was looking directly at my bone sticking out.”
In his shocking testimony, Depp recalled blood pouring out of his severed finger as he said the altercation made him feel like he was having a nervous breakdown.
“Nothing made sense. I knew in my mind and in my heart this is not life. This is not life. No one should have to go through this,” he concluded.
“This feeling of being in the middle of some sort of nervous breakdown I started to write with my own blood on the walls, little reminders from our past that essentially represented lies she had told me, lies I had caught her in.”
After being rushed to the hospital, the actor allegedly lied about the incident and refused to admit that Amber did this to him because he didn’t want to get her in trouble.
When a picture of him on a stretcher appeared in court, Depp also insisted he had forgotten to mention the part where his ex stubbed his cigarette on his face so that it left a mark.
“I see a detail I’d forgotten. Miss Heard had taken my cigarette from the ashtray and stubbed it out on my face,” he claimed.
