Johnny Depp Trial Starts, Depp Releases Photo of Mangled Finger, Calls Amber Heard’s Claims ‘Sick’

Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against Amber Heard and the British tabloid The Sun, who called him an abuser, is underway and Depp is clearly going to leave it all on the field trying to restore his good name.

The Associated Press reported that Depp had quite a lot to say about his ex Amber Heard and her alleged abuse against him.

Depp claimed that on another occasion, Heard repeatedly punched him in the face on a private jet, forcing him to spend the flight locked in the plane’s bathroom.

“Rage-filled violent incidents on planes were common with Amber,” he said in the written statement.

In court, Depp described one incident in which Heard claims he hit her. He said the opposite was true.

“As things tended to do, (it) escalated and got physical, ending with a bit of assault. Ms. Heard struck me,” he said.

In a written statement, Depp alleged that Heard was “a calculating, diagnosed borderline personality; she is sociopathic; she is a narcissist; and she is completely emotionally dishonest.”

That seems like a harsh description, but keep in mind she dated Elon Musk, so it all rings true to me.

Depp also talked about how Heard targeted him to raise her profile and fame, via People.

“She was then extremely friendly to me and keen to tell me about the breakup with her former partner that she had recently gone through. If I had known then what I knew now, I would have seen the red flag warning signs, but I did not,” Depp alleged in court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

“She was beautiful, seemingly incredibly interested in me and my work, and I fell for it,” he continued. “She bombed me with what appeared to be love. It was not until much later that I understood that she had an agenda, namely to get married to me in order to progress her own career and/or to benefit financially, and she knew how to bring it about.”

He added: “She knew what she wanted, and I was an easy target.”

Depp claimed that Heard “had well and truly research me and my interests and she would try to pose as some expert or intellectual on these things to try to ingratiate herself with me.”

“She presented herself as a carbon copy of me, with precisely the same interests, thoughts, favorite writers, taste in music and art as me,” he said in court filings. “Rather than see this as calculated, sociopathic and emotionally dishonest, I convinced myself that it was endearing and sweet.”

Calling his ex-wife “calculating” and “completely emotionally dishonest,” Depp said he’s “convinced that she came into my life to take from me anything worth taking, and then destroy what remained of it.”

Remember when they were both at Comic-Con and people were saying how sorry they felt for her having to see her abuser? Bet you feel foolish for that one, don’t you?

Interestingly enough it was The Sun, the very paper Depp is suing in this case for calling him a wife-beater, who reported that Depp released photos of his finger which he claims Heard nearly sliced off.

Not as gross as Megan Fox’s toe thumbs, but still fairly disturbing.
