Johnny Depp Takes the Stand, Denies Amber Heard’s ‘Heinous’ Abuse Allegations

Depp returned to the stand, he called Heard’s accusations of sexual and physical abuse ‘insane’ on Wednesday.

‘Ridiculous, humiliating, ludicrous, painful, savage, unbelievably brutal, cruel, and all false,” Depp said when asked about his reaction to hearing Heard’s allegations when she testified earlier in the trial.

Depp was testifying Wednesday as a rebuttal witness.

‘I have never in my life committed sexual battery, physical abuse, all these outlandish, outrageous stories of me committing these things,’ he said. ‘And living with it for six years, and waiting to be able to bring the truth out.’

He said that ‘no matter what happens I did get here and I did tell the truth and I have spoken up for what I’ve been carrying on my back, reluctantly, for six years.’

Depp will be cross-examined Wednesday afternoon.

Witness Says Amber Heard’s Forensic Psychologist ‘Misrepresented’ Tests and Results Watch:

Johnny also testified that Heard hit him on their honeymoon while on the Orient Express in 2016.

A photo was shown in court of Depp and Heard posing with the staff on the Orient Express. Depp said he had a ‘shiner.’

‘I had a sort of shiner, but it all ended and everything got fine again. We’d go to dinner,’ he said.

He said at times, things were ‘agreeable’ and ‘nice’ but then there were times when ‘something had become dissatisfactory’ for Heard and she would ‘start the rant.’

When asked how he got the black eye, Heard’s team objected.

It was overruled and Depp said, ‘Miss Heard hit me, is that better?’
