Amber Heard Claims Ex Johnny Depp Wrapped His Shirt Around Her Neck During ‘Terrible’ Fight
Johnny Depp’s High Court libel trial against the Sun publication over an article calling Depp a “wife-beater” continued on Tuesday.
The Sun claimed Depp had wrapped his shirt around his then-wife, Amber Heard’s neck, during a “terrible” flight between on their 2015 honeymoon in Southeast Asia.
Heard wrote in a diary entry, “A night that ended at 3:30 and was brutally interrupted by the train’s imminent arrival to the Singapore station too early this morning.
“After three hours of sleep, it had felt like an even more brutal heart hangover.
“Hurt last night was particularly bad. We finally fell asleep with one another smashed together in desperate childlike anger, fear and love.
“Our fight was terrible. J finally at one point found himself with his shirt wrapped around my neck.
“Amazing to think about precision/coordination that required considering the case circumstances. He hit me several times.
“I don’t even know how I wound up with this huge, rather annoying knot on the back of my head.
“F—k I hate that. I hate that I allow it by never using that as a line for which I stand my ground. Where are my lines? Do I have any left?”
Depp’s security guard, Malcolm Connolly, said he did not see or hear any assault on the train where the fight allegedly occurred. Connolly stated however that he “would never have known” about the fight because he was “three or four doors down” from the couple.
When questioned, Connolly did bring up Depp’s finger, which Heard severed with a vodka bottle in March 2015.
Connolly said Depp was “absolutely filthy,” “covered in blood and paint and dirt.” He also added that he had seen Heard throw a fork and a lighter at Depp in the past.
Depp’s estate manager at his Island in the Bahamas, Tara Roberts, said she had never seen Depp hit Heard. She did hear Heard call Depp “washed up and fat” saying he would “die a lonely man” in a fight between the two.
Depp and Heard met on the set of the 2011 comedy, The Rum Diary. They married in February 2015 and Heard filed for divorce a year later. Their divorce was finalized in 2017.
