Johnny Depp’s Amber Heard trial: Johnny Depp returns to the helm, Kate Moss testifies


Heard previously testified that it was Depp who hit her, and every time she used force it was in reaction to him. Depp said Wednesday that Heard’s accusations of physical and sexual abuse had “spinned out of control.”

“I have never in my life committed sexual assault, physical abuse. All these bizarre, outrageous stories of me doing these things and living with this for six years and waiting to get the truth out,” said Depp. “So it’s not easy for any of us. I know that. No matter what, I got here and told the truth. And I talked about what I’m wearing on my back reluctantly for six years.”

Depp is suing Heard for $50 million, claiming that a 2018 Washington Post op-ed she wrote in which she called herself “a public figure representing domestic violence” defamed the actor and caused him to lose his work in Hollywood. Heard has sued for $100 million for defamation over statements made by a lawyer for Depp who called his abuse allegations a “hoax.”

On Wednesday, Depp was shown a picture of himself with a black eye while he and Heard were on the Orient Express for their honeymoon and asked how he had injured himself.

“Ms. Heard hit me,” he testified.

When Heard spoke earlier this month, she shared her perspective on multiple alleged violent incidents with Depp. She testified that Depp had taken around 8 to 10 MDMA pills at the time of a March 2015 incident in Australia that left Depp with a badly injured finger.

Depp said consuming many pills would not be possible for him during his testimony on Wednesday.

“Because I would be dead. Pretty sure I would be dead,” Depp said. “I think someone would die. Probably pretty quickly.”

Heard testified that she was not aware that Depp injured his finger until several hours later. Depp testified that his fingertip was severed after Heard threw a glass vodka bottle at him. A text message from Depp to his doctor at the time read “I cut the top of my middle finger…What do I do!??” Depp testified that when he was later examined by the doctor at the house where he was staying, Depp told him what had happened.

“When you saw the damage in the house and the blood everywhere and there was obviously serious damage everywhere, there would be no point in lying to the man. He had already been through this with me and Mrs Heard “, Depp said. “I told her she threw a bottle of vodka and broke and cut off my finger. The tip of my finger. A good piece. I miss it.”

An orthopedic surgeon who specializes in hand surgery who was hired by Heard’s team as an expert witness testified on Monday that the injuries Depp suffered to his finger were inconsistent with his allegation that Heard allegedly slammed his hand with a glass vodka bottle, which Depp disputed. the podium on Wednesday.

“All of that was the first bottle that popped into my head,” Depp testified, pointing to a photo of the scene. “And the second bottle hit right where my hand was resting on the marble bar.”

Depp is expected to continue testifying in cross-examination after a lunch break.

Kate Moss testifies

Model Kate Moss came virtually from England to give evidence earlier on Wednesday as Depp’s witness, telling the jury he never pushed her down the stairs.

Moss, who testified for less than three minutes, said she had been romantically involved with Depp from 1994 to 1998. Depp’s team called her as a rebuttal witness in response to testimony from Heard, who testified. told the stand she thought a rumor Depp had pushed Moss when she and her sister Whitney Heard Henriquez were in an altercation with Depp near a staircase.

On Wednesday, Moss testified under oath that the rumor was false – that the then couple had traveled to Jamaica during their relationship and at some point during the trip there had been a rainstorm and Moss was fell down a flight of stairs and injured her back. .

“We were leaving the room and Johnny left the room before me and there had been a thunderstorm and on leaving the room I slipped down the stairs and hurt my back,” Moss said. “I screamed because I didn’t know what had happened to me and I was in pain and he came running back to help me and carried me to my room and got me treated.”
