Johnny Depp Accuses Amber Heard Of Severing Finger Tip

Johnny Depp has accused his ex-wife Amber Heard of severing the tip of his finger, as his libel claim against the Sun newspaper continues.

The actor told the High Court Ms Heard, 34, threw a vodka bottle at him which cut the top of his finger and “crushed the bones”.

She denies injuring his finger.

Mr Depp, 57, is suing for libel over a Sun article that called him a “wife beater” – but the newspaper maintains the story was accurate.

The April 2018 piece by journalist Dan Wootton was about the casting of Mr Depp in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film franchise.

Mr Depp’s lawyers say the article made “defamatory allegations of the utmost seriousness”, by accusing him of committing serious assaults on Ms Heard and “inflicting such serious injuries that she feared for her life”.

On the third day of proceedings at London’s High Court, Sasha Wass QC, representing Sun publisher News Group Newspapers, said Ms Heard had been subjected to a “three-day ordeal” during which Mr Depp had “completely destroyed” the house they were staying in during a drug-fuelled rage.

Ms Wass said Mr Depp had accused the actress of having affairs with her “leading man” while the couple were in Australia where he was filming one of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise in March 2015. He then threw Ms Heard against a ping-pong table and pushed her up against a fridge, Ms Wass said.

Mr Depp denied the accusation, adding: “After the incident where Ms Heard threw the vodka bottle, the second vodka bottle at me, which severed the top of my finger and crushed the bones, that’s when I began what I feel was probably some species of a breakdown, a nervous breakdown or something.”

Mr Depp said he then began to write on mirrors and walls using the injured finger, saying he “didn’t want to live at that time”.

 

Ms Wass said to Mr Depp: “At one stage when you were in the kitchen, screaming at Ms Heard, you picked up the wall-mounted telephone.”

She said Mr Depp had the phone in his right hand and was “repeatedly smashing it against the wall”.

Mr Depp replied: “That’s possible.”
