Johnny Depp Takes The Stand At US Trial Against Amber Heard, Says Never Hit A Woman In My Life

|

Johnny
Depp
testified
on
Tuesday
(April
19)
during
his
US
trial
against
ex-wife
and
actress
Amber
Heard.
During
the
stand,
Johnny
spoke
for
three
hours
and
claimed
that
he
never
struck
his
ex-wife
Amber
Heard.
He
challenged
her
accusations
in
a
$50
million
defamation
case
to
correct
public’s
perception.

In
a
Virginia
courtroom,
Depp
took
to
the
stand
and
said
that
it
was
a
“complete
shock”
about
six
years
ago
when
Heard
“made
some
quite
heinous
and
disturbing”
allegations
that
he
became
violent
during
their
relationship.
The
trial
which
is
in
its
second
week
is
being
overseen
by
state
court
judge
in
Fairfax
County,
Virginia.

The
Pirates
of
the
Caribbean
actor
told
the
court,
“Never
did
I
myself
reach
the
point
of
striking
Ms.
Heard
in
any
way,
nor
have
I
ever
struck
any
woman
in
my
life.
I
felt
it
my
responsibility
to
stand
up
not
only
for
myself
in
that
instance
but
stand
up
for
my
children.”

&
Amber
Heard
Participated
In
Mutual
Abuse,
Reveals
Their
Former
Marriage
Counsellor

Depp
has
two
children
from
a
previous
relationship,
who
were
in
high
school
at
the
time
the
allegations
first
came
up.
He
added,
“It’s
very
strange
when
one
day
you’re
Cinderella
so
to
speak,
and
then
in
0.6
seconds
you’re
Quasimodo.”

The
trial
is
expected
to
last
for
six
weeks
and
the
actor
will
stand
once
again
on
Wednesday
(April
20)
when
he
will
be
cross-questioned
by
Heard’s
legal
team.

Depp
in
the
case
filed
in
the
US
court,
has
alleged
that
ex-wife
Amber
Heard
defamed
him
when
she
penned
a
December
2018
opinionated
piece
in
the
Washington
Post
about
being
a
survivor
of
domestic
abuse.
He
filed
a
$50
million
lawsuit
against
Heard
in
2018.

In
the
US
case,
Depp
and
Heard
both
submitted
long
lists
of
potential
witnesses
they
may
call,
including
Heard’s
ex-boyfriend
and
Tesla
Chief
Executive
Elon
Musk
and
actor
James
Franco.

During

Defamation
Lawsuit
Trial:
Report

Meanwhile,
less
than
two
years
ago,
Depp
lost
a
libel
case
against
The
Sun,
a
British
tabloid
that
labelled
him
as
a
“wife-beater.”
The
London
High
Court
judge
ruled
he
had
repeatedly
assaulted
Heard
and
put
her
in
fear
for
her
life.

On
the
other
hand,
Heard
has
brought
her
own
libel
claim
against
Depp,
claiming
Depp
smeared
her
name
by
calling
her
a
liar.
In
a
counterclaim,
she
is
seeking
$100
million
in
damages,
which
will
be
decided
as
part
of
the
US
trial.
