Head­butt, sev­ered fin­ger — an­other day in court for Depp

Geelong Advertiser - - NEWS - STEPHEN DRILL

PI­RATES of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp “ac­ci­den­tally” head­but­ted ex-wife Am­ber Heard and painted “I love U” in blood with his sev­ered fin­ger on a mir­ror in a house he trashed in Aus­tralia.

The ac­tor’s bizarre li­bel case in Lon­don’s High Court has pro­duced more star­tling claims, in­clud­ing al­le­ga­tions he took 10 ec­stasy pills in two hours and drew a pe­nis on a pic­ture of a woman in a bikini.

Dam­age to the house in Aus­tralia dur­ing a “three-day or­deal of as­saults” on Heard in March 2015 was $150,000, the court heard.

Depp de­nied he told Heard “Look what you made me do” when she saw the dam­age.

Sasha Wass, QC, who is de­fend­ing The Sun news­pa­per over an ar­ti­cle that called

Depp a “wife beater”, put to the ac­tor that he had used his sev­ered fin­ger in­stead of a paint­brush to graf­fiti a mir­ror.

Depp, who claims his fin­ger was sev­ered by a bot­tle of vodka thrown at him by Heard, replied: “At first, I had used my blood.”

In an in­ci­dent in Los An­ge­les in 2015, Depp said he “ac­ci­den­tally” head­but­ted Heard.

Depp said he had only head­but­ted her in the “f-----fore­head”, which he said “didn’t break a nose”, ac­cord­ing to a record­ing of the ac­tor played in court.
