Aquaman actress Amber heard has finally taken the stand in the $100 million defamation case between her and ex-husband Johnny Depp. The actress fought back her tears and broke down as she testified that ex-husband Johnny Depp physically abused her during their short marriage.
She went on to claim that it all started with slaps after she laughed at one of his tattoos and escalated to a "cavity search" of her body for cocaine. She continued to cry and speak calmly during her testimony and said she stayed with Johnny because she wanted to believe his apologies and promises to never hit her.
Amber stated that the former couple had had a "magical" relationship until it turned violent. The 36-year-old actress pointed out the 58-year-old’s first physical outburst after she asked what was written on one of his faded tattoos.
She said he replied "Wino," and she laughed, thinking it was a joke. "He slapped me across the face," she said. "I didn't know what was going on. I just stared at him." Amber said he slapped her twice more and said "you think it's funny, bit**?"
According to People, she said, “I just laughed because I thought he was joking.” She added that she will "never forget" the moment because "it changed my life." In his earlier testimony, he said the fight over the "Wino" tattoo, which was originally the name of former girlfriend Winona Ryder, "didn't happen."
Amber also said Johnny assaulted her "several times," usually when he was drinking or using drugs.
During a weekend away with friends in May 2013, Amber said, Johnny became angry and accused her of inviting what he perceived as suggestive advances from another woman. That evening, Amber said Johnny tore her dress, ripped off her underwear and stuck his fingers "inside" her. "He proceeds to do a cavity search," she said. "He's looking for his drugs, his cocaine."
Earlier, psychologist Dawn Hughes testified that Amber had told her that Johnny had put his fingers up her vagina to search for cocaine.
