It’s yet another day in the $50-million defamation case filed by Johnny Depp against ex-wife Amber Heard. Monday, marked the fourth day when Depp will be seen taking it to the stand and he has yet again made shocking revelations submitting his case against the nasty claims made by Heard.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor revealed that he would become 'physically ill' and would need to go away to 'vomit' whenever he engaged in a fight with his ex-wife Amber Heard. He also denied claims of him putting out cigarettes on Heard.
The notion of Depp putting out cigarettes came after Heard suggested it in a recording played in court.
As per the reports, the defamation trial between Depp and Heard began on April 11, Monday in Fairfax, Virginia, after the actor filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard in response to an op-ed she penned in the Washington Post in 2018 about her experiences with domestic abuse.
Heard has since filed a counterclaim for damages of $100 million, which the jury will also consider.
Although the op-ed titled, “I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change”, does not specifically mention Depp, his lawyers, and the legal team filed the defamation suit since his future projects were getting impacted.
On Monday, Depp was called to stand and questioned about a recording that was played in one of the earlier proceedings.
It was a clip where Heard claimed Depp vomited in his sleep quite often. Depp replied, "When someone brings up that you vomit in your sleep every night – first, I think you’d be aware of it. The first thing I would do is seek medical attention.”
He continued, "I’ve never vomited in my sleep every night. There were times when I would get physically ill from the endless shots that you take when you’re unable to take it anymore.” Further explaining himself, Depp added, "It does affect you physically after a while so I would have to leave and go and vomit when fights got into these surreal, absurd, and horrible places. It still confounds me as to why she would record that."
He also denied the claim which said he put out cigarettes on Heard. 'The Murder on the Orient Express' star's exact words were, "I can certainly say, without hesitation, there’s no way under the sun that I would flick a cigarette at her or burn her with a cigarette. If I flicked ashes, and ash got on her, but she’s certainly not screaming out in pain as if a cigarette is being put out on her. That’s ludicrous.”
