Johnny Depp hit Amber Heard three times when she laughed at how he exchanged a tribute tattoo for Winona Ryder to read “Wino Forever,” a London court heard on Wednesday.
From the second day of his explosive testimony in his defamation against The Sun, Depp, 57, was immediately accused of assaulting his ex-wife when he was drunk after teasing him for the crime – which previously read: “Winona Forever . ”
The laugh “provoked disappointment” and “then anger” in the actor, said the London High Court of Sasha Wass, The Sun’s lawyer, who, according to Depp, is being sued according to DailyMail.com.
“You then slapped Ms. Heard in the face, Mr. Depp,”
“You hit her more than once because after you hit her the first time she didn’t respond, she just looked at you, she just stared at you, and that made you angrier and you hit her again” said Wass said.
Depp called it “obviously wrong” and insisted: “This is not right, it is wrong. It did not happen. “
After his attack, “Depp started crying and apologizing,” promising never to hit her again, and accusing him of a “sickness,” Wass said, according to the Evening Standard.
“You told her for the first time about the person you called the ‘monster’ – your alter ego – the person who took over when you were under the influence of alcohol and drugs,” added Ms. Wass.
The court was informed that he sent Heard a text in March 2013 saying, “I just thought you should know that there is a book called Disco Bloodbath. That’s all.”
“Is it just about last Friday night?” His wife asked according to the mail, and Depp asked her in reply how she could “make me smile about such a terrible moment”.
According to the report, the message ended with the title “I love you, you cannot”.
The star – who admitted on Tuesday to have taken “every drug known to man” – admitted that it was “possible” that he took cocaine in March 2013 when Heard claimed the tattoo tease attack had occurred.
Depp told the court that his ex-wife “never supported me in my attempt to be strong and avoid alcohol and drugs,” and instead encouraged him to “fall off the car,” the standard said.
He is said to have been “drunk and consuming a cocktail of cocaine and cannabis” before another fight, this time because of Heard’s refusal to remove a painting of her ex Tasya van Ree.
“I can be jealous,” Depp admitted to the court, according to Mail, saying that they had “multiple arguments about Ms. van Ree.”
However, he said his ex’s allegations that he had attempted to remove the painting by force and set it on fire was “not true,” the email said.
Depp is suing The Sun for an April 2018 article describing him as a “thug”, which he vehemently denies and accuses his ex-wife of violence in their marriage.
The Sun’s defense is based on Heard’s allegations that Depp committed 14 cases of violence between 2013 and 2016.
