During opening statements for the defamation trial between the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard today, the Aquaman star appeared to be holding back tears as her lawyer, Elaine Bredhoft, detailed an alleged sexual assault by Johnny Depp.
Amber’s lawyer described the alleged physical and sexual assault very graphically.
“As you go through those three days of Australia, some pretty horrendous things happened to her, ” Bredhoft said. “He rips off her nightgown. He has her jammed up against a bar. He has hurled bottles and bottles at her. He has dragged her across the floor on the broken bottles and the liquor. He has punched her. He has kicked her. He tells her he’s going to ‘fucking kill her.’ He ‘fucking hates her. He’s pounding at her, pounding her, and then, he penetrates her with a liquor bottle.”
In describing the alleged incident, Bredehoft revealed Johnny took 10 ecstasy tablets and became “very violent” on the trip, as Amber tried to calm him down so he could eat or sleep.
“He was at times delusional, paranoid,” she continued. “He would be mad at somebody else, then he’d be mad at her.”
The fight allegedly began over a lawyer Heard contacted at Depp’s request to set up a postnup for their marriage.
“He called the lawyer from Australia, called her a bitch, and fired her… that’s the type of Johnny Depp that was there… he didn’t want the postnup, he didn’t want the prenup, but now, they’re going to tell you it was her that was mad.”
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of an alleged sexual assault of Amber Heard by Johnny Depp, but it has never been told in such detail. At the conclusion of the the UK Court case, Judge Andrew Nicol accepted this incident into record but respected Ms. Heard’s wishes to keep it confidential and in a separate confidential judgment.
