Actor Johnny Depp used his sliced finger to daub graffiti on a mirror and walls in blood and paint during an alleged drug-fuelled “three-day ordeal” he put his ex-wife Amber Heard through in Australia, the High Court has been told.
In another day of explosive revelations during the Hollywood star’s high-profile libel action against The Sun, the court in London has heard more details about the volatile nature of the former couple’s relationship.
As well as the incident in Australia in 2015, while Depp was shooting a Pirates Of The Caribbean film, the court heard details of alleged violence later that year in LA, in which it is claimed Depp headbutted Heard.
He strenuously denies allegations of abuse and claims it was Heard who abused him, saying she was compiling a “dossier” of false allegations against him during their relationship.
Depp’s finger was injured during a prolonged argument at a rented house in Australia – he claims he sustained the wound when Heard threw a bottle at him.
But the 57-year-old has been accused of assaulting Heard, 34, and “completely destroying” the house in a drink and drug-fuelled rage.
The allegations were put to Depp during his third day on the witness stand.
Depp said he “vehemently denied” subjecting Heard to a “three-day ordeal of assaults” during the Australia trip, saying it was “pedestrian fiction”.
