After three weeks of Johnny Depp’s testimony, including the actor’s memorable four days in the stands, it’s Amber Heard’s turn to tell her story. The Aquarius star, 36, sat before a jury Wednesday afternoon, accusing her ex-husband of physical assault and assault. During her three-hour testimony, Depp, 58, kept his head down and never looked at her on the witness stand.

“I’m here because my ex-husband is suing me for an op-ed I wrote,” Heard began. “I’m having a hard time finding the words to describe how painful this is. It’s horrible for me to sit here for weeks and relive everything… this is the most painful and difficult thought I’ve ever gone through.”

Heard is being sued for $50 million because Depp alleges she defamed him in a 2018 op-ed published in The Washington Post† The actor’s legal team presented his case that he had lost at least $40 million in revenue and that the article was “catastrophic” for his career. The pirates of the caribbean star testified that he “never” abused Heard or any woman and that she was the violent aggressor in their relationship.

According to Heard, that is not the case. She testified that Depp was volatile after they started dating. “It started with throwing things, destroying the property and yelling at me,” she claimed. In 2013, it got physical.

“It seems so stupid, so insignificant. I will never forget it. It changed my life,” Heard told the jury of the first time she was hit. “I sat on the couch and we were talking, we had like a normal conversation. There was no arguing, no arguing, nothing. He was drinking and I didn’t realize it then, but I think he was using cocaine. … I asked him about the tattoo he has on his arm.”

Depp’s tattoo read “Wino Forever,” which he changed from “Winona Forever.” (The actor was previously in a relationship with Winona Ryder.) When Depp told Heard what it said, she laughed.

“He punched me in the face – and I laughed. I laughed because I didn’t know what else to do. I thought this must be a joke. This must be a joke because I didn’t know what was going on. I I still stared at him with a little laugh, thinking he was going to laugh too… but he didn’t,” Heard explained.

Depp is said to have yelled at her, “Do you think you’re funny, bitch?”

“He hit me again. Obviously it wasn’t a joke anymore. I stopped laughing, but I didn’t know what else to do. … He hit me for no reason,” Heard continued, adding that Depp hit her ‘hard’ for the third time. She remembered how “dirty” the carpet was when she lay there face down.

Heard became emotional in the stands, claiming that Depp told her he “done it before” and “thought I put the sample away”. The actress left the house, but not the relationship. She said Depp later begged for forgiveness and told her, “I’ll never touch you again.”

When Depp testified two weeks ago, he claimed that this entire incident never happened. In fact, there’s practically nothing the actors agree on except that when they kissed during filming The Rum Diary in 2009 their chemistry was ‘remarkable’.

“It didn’t feel like a normal scene anymore, it felt more real,” Heard recalls.

That’s where the similarities end.

Heard told the judges that on movie sets, “you don’t use your tongue” to keep things professional.

“Those lines were blurry. He grabbed my face, pulled me to him and really kissed me. But we were filming a scene,” she said, confirming that Depp let her slip his tongue. Hinting at more unprofessional behavior, Heard claimed that once, when she was wearing a robe on set, he “picked up the back of my robe with its boot.”

“I didn’t know what to think at the time, I giggled a little and playfully knocked it away,” she explained.

Depp testified that he and Heard kissed off-camera in his trailer once, and that although she wanted to stay, he knew it was a bad idea, just like in any other relationship. Heard had a different story. She said Depp “playfully” pushed her on a bed in his trailer in a “flirty” way.

“I giggled, laughed it off and knocked him away,” she claimed.

Heard and Depp haven’t seen each other for nearly two years, although she says he sent her lavish gifts in the meantime. When they reunited for the film’s press tour in 2011, they were both single. Heard said Depp invited her to his hotel room under the guise of having a drink with the director, but when she arrived, the director wasn’t there. They drank wine and hung out on the couch for hours.

“When I left, he grabbed both sides of my face, just like he did.” [during filming]She said. “He kissed me and I kissed him back…then we fell in love.”

In March 2013, according to Heard, violence became routine in their relationship. She claimed in one instance that Depp hit her and “my lip went into my teeth and there was a little bit of blood on the wall.”

Heard said she was attacked on another occasion that month: “He grabbed me by the arm and he just held me to the ground yelling at me. I don’t know how many times he punched me in the face, but I remember I was on the floor of my apartment and I remember thinking, ‘How could this happen to me again?'”

Heard claims that not only was she physically assaulted, but she also experienced sexual assault. (Depp testified that he never sexually assaulted a woman.)

The alleged incident took place in May 2013 when they were using drugs with a group of friends in Joshua Tree, California (dubbed the “Hicksville” incident at trial.) In the trailer where they were staying, the actress testified that she had been digitally penetrated. by Depp when he was looking for cocaine.

“He ripped my dress…he grabs my chest, he touches my thighs, he rips off my underwear and then he goes on looking for holes,” Heard said emotionally. “He said he was looking for his drugs, his cocaine.”

Heard told the jury that she “was not taking cocaine and was against it”.

“Why should I hide his drugs from him?” she continued, claiming that Depp “pressed his fingers into me.”

Heard said she was “just staring at this stupid light.”

“I didn’t know what to do. I just stood there while he did that. He twirled his fingers around. I didn’t say stop or anything, I just said,” Heard added, getting emotional. “I froze.”

Heard still hasn’t left Depp after the alleged incident that called him the “love of my life” at the time. “I had so much hope,” she explained.

The relationship did not improve that summer when Heard testified about two more alleged abuse incidents. He gave her a nosebleed after a flight where they were believed to have both taken MDMA and given a pill to a flight attendant.

While in the Bahamas with his kids, Heard claimed that Depp “punched me around the neck and held me there for a second and told me he could kill me and I was a disgrace.”

Heard’s testimony is wrapped up for today. She will be back in the stands on Thursday.
