Amber Heard Claims Johnny Depp Kicked Her Over James Franco
On Thursday, Amber Heard took the stand again in Virginia.
During her testimony, she shared her side of the story about what led to the infamous fight between herself and her ex-husband Johnny Depp on a private plane in 2014 as they were flying to Los Angeles from Boston.
At the time of the incident, Heard was shooting “The Adderall Diaries” with James Franco, who she said Depp “hated.”
She told the courtroom, “It was a nightmare. [Johnny] was mad at me for taking the job with James Franco. He hated, hated James Franco and was already accusing me of secretly having a thing with him in my past."
The two had allegedly been arguing about Franco the night before.
She said, “He gets on the plane and I just knew every cell of my body something was wrong. I already know that he's drunk, I already know he's using, he reeks of weed and alcohol. His breath smelled so bad. I could anticipate that there was a no-win situation here. There's no me talking myself out of this or talking him down."
Heard testified that Depp confronted her about Franco and their intimate scenes. She said, “[Johnny] was saying really disgusting things about my body, how I liked it. He called me a go-getter, he called me a slut… I struggle to be able to tell you how embarrassed I was because he was... asking me if I liked it... Did I ask James to do this and this to me."
According to Heard, things escalated in front of his friend. She said, “He starts throwing things at me. Ice cubes, utensils... talking about what an embarrassment I am. He sits down in front of me at one point... and he slaps my face."
Heard accused Depp of kicking her as she was getting up, saying, “I feel this boot in my back. He just kicked me in the back. I fell on the floor. No one did anything."
Heard testified that she was “just embarrassed that he would do that in front of people.”
Heard also explained why she tape-recorded Depp on the plane, saying, “In my experience, when Johnny was that inebriated, he would not remember what was done.”
Audio of Depp moaning on the plane is heard. According to Heard, Depp “started howling like an animal” in the plane bathroom.
Depp has denied the fight on the plane and her assertion that he was intoxicated.
Despite their tumultuous relationship, the two still got engaged and married.
Heard also shared her take on Depp’s engagement proposal in the summer of 2013. She said, “I looked into his eyes and saw my future and hope, like blind hope. I thought if we were married, this is real, it’s not chaotic, this will change.”
Of their engagement party, which was attended by their close circle of friends and family, Heard testified that Depp “disappeared upstairs almost the entire party” and was doing drugs with her dad. She told the court that her dad “was addicted to the same thing Johnny was.”
She added, “I tried to get Johnny to come downstairs and he just snapped at me, verbally told me to shut the f**k up. I remember talking to my mom about the irony of it.”
Heard used the word “taunting” multiple times to describe several interactions with Depp.
Heard claimed that Depp assaulted her with a liquor bottle in one alleged confrontation in Australia.
She testified that Depp told her, “I f**king hate you, you ruined my life.”
Heard got emotional while going into explicit detail about the alleged attack. She said, “Johnny had the bottle inside of me and was shoving it inside of me over and over again.”
She testified, “I didn’t know if the bottle he had inside me was broken. Couldn’t feel it. I couldn’t feel anything.
“I couldn’t feel his arm. It looked like he was punching me. I could feel this pressure… on my pubic bone,” Heard continued. “I don’t remember what he said. I just remember being really still, not wanting to move. I remember looking around the room. I remember looking at all the broken bottles… I remember there was some blood on the floor.”
After the incident, Heard claimed that she eventually took two sleeping pills and fell asleep.
According to Heard, she saw “dried blood” on the walls, lampshades, and pillows when she went downstairs at their rented home after waking up. She said, “Glass, blood, broken window, it just looked like a mess… He had his hand wrapped in a bandana rag.”
Along with the house being trashed, Heard testified that she then realized he had injured his hand. She said, “I figured out he was missing a finger.”
Heard claimed Depp wrote messages with his severed finger. She said, “It looked like he had run out of blood.”
Heard was also shown photos of the house where the fight allegedly took place, including a bar location and an area with a broken window.
Heard testified that Depp broke her phone, which she believes is how he severed his finger.
