Actress Heard says ex-husband Depp threatened to kill her

American actress Amber Heard told London’s High Court on Monday (July 20) her ex-husband Johnny Depp had threatened to kill her “many times” and that she had thrown objects at the Hollywood star only to escape his violent attacks.

Depp is suing News Group Newspapers, publishers of Britain’s Sun newspaper, over a 2018 article which labelled him a “wife beater” and questioned his casting in the “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them” franchise.

The 57-year-old actor – who played Captain Jack Sparrow in the lucrative “Pirates of the Caribbean” series – told the court last week that all of Heard’s 14 allegations of physical and verbal abuse were untrue. He accuses her of domestic violence against him.

Heard, 34, said the actor would obsess about her appearance and would call her “a slut”, “fame-hungry” and “an attention whore” if she wore certain outfits. After his rages had abated, Depp would blame his actions on an alter ego he would call “the monster”.

Heard, who began dating Depp in 2011 and married him four years later, denied she had anger issues or got violent, rejecting accusations from the actor’s staff who have told the court that she had started their fights.

Heard’s evidence is due to last three days and the trial is set to conclude next week, although no ruling is expected immediately.
