Los Angeles, United States, Apr 20 (EFE).- Actor Johnny Depp said Wednesday that his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard, left “human fecal remains” on his bed days after their separation.
Depp said for the second consecutive day in the litigation that he is facing Heard, after a first day in which he said he had “never” “hit a woman” in his life.
The 10 people who make up the jury of the trial, which began Apr. 11 in Fairfax (Virginia, United States), listened for more than four hours to new details of the tortuous relationship the actors had for five years.
In the lawsuit, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” protagonist accused his ex-wife of defamation for an article she published in The Washington Post in 2018 after their divorce, in which she claimed to have suffered “domestic abuse.”
Depp said he went to the Los Angeles house the couple shared to collect his things after they separated and found “human fecal remains” on his side of the bed.
“It was so weird and so grotesque that I could only laugh,” the actor said, while a photo of the feces was projected.
Heard, also present in the room, listened in silence to the testimony of her ex-partner with a blank look that, at times, hinted at disapproval.
Her statement is expected in the coming weeks.
In front of her, Depp, more agitated than on the first day, described his version of several of the fights he had with Heard, whom he described as an “abusive” couple and with whom he said he spent so many years for fear of “failing” and even to a hypothetical suicide of the actress.
The actor offered details of the row the couple had in Australia in 2015, in which Depp allegedly lost a piece of his finger.
“I looked down and realized that she had cut off the tip of my finger. I was looking right at my bones, which were sticking out,” he said.
According to the account of the events, he went to the kitchen to pour himself a glass of vodka when the actress appeared and hit him with her bottle, cutting his finger with the glass. EFE
