Samantha McMillen said she spent "much of the afternoon and early evening" with Heard on December 16, 2015, as she was preparing to appear on James Corden's show – and "could see clearly" that Heard had no marks, cuts or had bruises.

Depp is said to have been violent against Heard in a dispute in her penthouse in Los Angeles the day before, which he denies. The Hollywood star is suing The Sun for an April 2018 article calling him the "thug."

The stylist, who has been with Depp since 2002 and was Stylist during the couple's relationship, said, "Ms. Heard had no black eyes and was visibly unharmed all day and at that moment."

Ms. McMillen, who also styled Brie Larson and Ryan Gosling, added: "I later learned that Ms. Heard had accused Mr. Depp of using legal records and the media to abuse her last night, December 15, 2015 to have."

When Ms. McMillen left Heard's company on December 16, she claimed she had overheard her statement to her friend Raquel Pennington, who came to the show with her, "Make sure you put these pictures on my computer."

But the stylist added that she "didn't know what photos she was referring to". Heard's legal team later issued photos with facial injuries at the time of the alleged attack, but they are not dated.

On another day of bombing evidence outside the Royal Courts of Justice in London, further claims were made today:

  • Depp claimed that Heard "bought him for fame" but "hammered" him because he was "a sad old man" in explosive lyrics;
  • Depp claimed that Heard stuck a cigarette in Australia's face a month after she married in 2015.
  • The actor was "in emotional distress and panic" after his finger was cut off, according to his bodyguard.
  • Heard took off her wedding ring and tossed it in another row with Depp in 2015, but it was found later.
  • Heard's stylist said she hadn't suffered any visible injuries the day after the actress claimed Depp was violent towards her.
  • Depp's chief of security Jerry Judge previously warned that the actor was "not good" and "we have to help him".

In a separate alleged incident in May 2016, Ms. McMillen also claimed that Heard had no facial injuries, despite the actress claiming that Depp had attacked her three days earlier.

Ms. McMillen said she saw a tearful hearing at Depp's house in West Hollywood on May 24, 2016, but could not see any "marks, bruises, cuts, or injuries" on any part of her body.

Three days later, Ms. McMillen read in the media that Heard had gone to court with "noticeable facial injuries" and claimed that Depp had inflicted it on her.

However, the stylist said Depp left Los Angeles on May 22, and therefore "could not cause the evidence that Ms. Heard appeared in court on May 27, 2016."

Ms. McMillen was asked to testify via video link in Depp's defamation lawsuit against The Sun newspaper about an April 2018 article from the United States calling him a "thug."

Sasha Wass, for The Sun Publishing News Group Newspapers (NGN), said Ms. McMillen was asked to testify on two dates – December 16, 2015 and May 24, 2016 – when she saw Ms. Heard.

The lawyer showed Ms. McMillen a series of photos from around December 16, 2015, to show Ms. Heard with spots and bruises on her face.

After Ms. McMillen showed a photo taken on December 15 that appears to have Heard's face suddenly on her face, she said, "I don't remember how she looked that day."

Ms. Wass asked: "Would you agree that this shows that there are bruises under both eyes?" Ms. McMillen replied, "It's not a clear picture, but it looks like it's dark around her eyes."

Johnny Depp's housekeeper was "disgusted" and found feces in bed that the actor shared with Amber Heard

Johnny Depp's housekeeper said she was "horrified and disgusted" when she found "a huge pile of feces" in bed that the actor shared with ex-wife Amber Heard.

In a testimony submitted to the High Court in the Hollywood actor's defamation lawsuit against The Sun newspaper, Hilda Vargas claimed that it was "clear" that the excrement was human, and said that she knew that it was not one of them two small dogs of the couple.

The court previously heard that the day after Ms. Heard's 30th birthday celebration in April 2016, feces were found in the couple's penthouse bed in Los Angeles in the Eastern Columbia building.

The 34-year-old Heard claims that one of the two little Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo is responsible.

The 57-year-old Depp told the court that it was "a mystery" that had settled in bed and added that he was "convinced" that Ms. Heard or one of her cohorts was involved in the so-called "bowel movement".

In her written statement, Ms. Vargas, who has worked for Mr. Depp for more than 30 years, said that she arrived at the apartment on April 22, 2016 at around 3 p.m. and was just finished washing up and vacuuming when she heard another cleaning lady call out and she joined her in the master bedroom.

"She pointed to the bed and told me she couldn't believe what she found," said Mrs. Vargas.

I pulled back the top sheet on the bed and saw a large pile of feces. I was horrified and disgusted. I knew that this was human feces. I knew that the droppings could not come from Mr. Depps or Mrs. Heards' two small dogs.

"I've cleaned up these dogs many times and their feces are much smaller. Also, I never knew that these dogs droppings in bed. & # 39;

Ms. Vargas said in her statement that she took pictures of the feces in bed before washing and changing the sheets.

She later told Mr. Depp's estate administrator Kevin Murphy what she found because she was "so angry".

Ms. Vargas said she was working at Depp's West Hollywood house on May 24, 2016 when Heard arrived with her friend Raquel Pennington.

The housekeeper claimed that Heard called her and told her that the photos she took of the feces in bed "destroyed her marriage."

Ms. Vargas said: "I was very nervous and apologized, even though I did not think that her marriage problems were my fault or that I had done something wrong.

I also told Ms. Heard that the feces were there and there was nothing I could do. Ms. Heard argued with me and said there was no fecal matter in bed.

I said again that the feces were there, that they were big and smelled horrible. Ms. Heard continued to disagree with me, but I wanted to end the conversation as soon as possible. & # 39;

In her statement, Ms. Vargas also said that she "often" heard Ms. Heard "yell at Mr. Depp and others".

She said: “I think she is in a bad mood and I didn't want her to scream at me.

"On the contrary, in the over 30 years that I have worked for Mr. Depp, I have never seen Mr. Depp in contact with someone or yell at him."

Ms. Wass said, "Your evidence is that you did not see any of these injuries in the afternoon or on the night of December 16, when you were with Ms. Heard." Ms. McMillen said, "That's right."

Ms. Wass continued: “Ms. Heard informed a number of people about these injuries on the 15th and 16th. How close would you be to Ms. Heard? Ms. McMillen replied, "We had a good working relationship."

When asked if Heard would trust her, Ms. McMillen said, "I wouldn't say no. I would not be on your speed dial. & # 39;

Ms. Wass referred to a Heard message in December 2015 that read, "Johnny did a number with me tonight." The lawyer asked, "Did Ms. Heard ever tell you that Johnny made a number for her?"

Ms. McMillen said, "She never told me anything about it."

Ms. Wass then asked, “Do you think your loyalty is more to Mr. Depp than to Mrs. Heard? You have a longstanding relationship with Mr. Depp … he's a big figure in Hollywood.

"If there were a conflict of loyalty between Mr. Depp, your loyalty to Mr. Depp on the one hand, and your loyalty to Ms. Heard … who would have priority?"

Ms. McMillen said, “I was closely connected to her at the time. I don't know what you assume, but I wouldn't get engaged to anyone. I'm obviously loyal because he's nice and loyal back, but for no other reason than this. & # 39;

Ms. Wass asked why Ms. Heard would allege domestic violence against Mr. Depp "unless it was true".

Ms. McMillen replied, "I don't know the answer to that."

Ms. McMillen told the court that Ms. Heard said to her after she started the James Corden show on December 16, 2015, "Can you believe I just did this show with two black eyes?"

The witness was asked: "As far as you could see, did Ms. Heard have two black eyes?"

Ms. McMillen replied, “I've never noticed anything like this when I saw her. I never noticed that she has two black eyes. & # 39;

Ms. Wass asked: "If you didn't see black eyes, didn't you ask what on earth she was talking about?"

Ms. McMillen said, "I didn't do it. We went at the end of the show and went our separate ways. We said goodbye.

"I was confused and I think I said something like" I don't know what to say ".

"I didn't see the black eyes, but I also don't want any kind of – I just wanted to go home."

Ms. McMillen was then asked for an email that Ms. Heard had sent to her publicist Jodi Gottlieb in the early morning hours of December 16 and said, "I am really hurt or I might have one or two blue eyes tomorrow." I may not be fit for tomorrow, but I won't know how bad the bruise is until the morning. & # 39;

Ms. Wass asked if there was "any reason" why Ms. Heard would send this email, "unless she actually had what she thought were two black eyes." Ms. McMillen replied, "I can't imagine why she would do that."

Ms. Wass asked, "After saying to you," Can you believe that I only did this show with two black eyes? "Didn't you think of offering her some support or making some kind of request instead of just going quickly?" Mrs. McMillen said, "I hugged her."

Ms. Wass suggested that Ms. Heard's make-up artist Melanie Inglessis said she would "give Ms. Heard a really bright red lipstick to try to cover the mark on her lip." Ms. McMillen said, "I don't remember that conversation."

Ms. Wass asked, "Do you remember Ms. Inglessi's Ms. Heard putting on extra make-up that night to cover the injuries?" Ms. McMillen replied, "I didn't notice that it was heavier than usual."

Ms. Wass asked Ms. McMillen if, after apparently seeing photos of Heard with markings, she still claims that there was nothing on her face on the 24th. Ms. McMillen replied, "When I saw her on May 24, 2016, I noticed nothing but her beautiful skin."

Ms. Wass suggested: "You are less open with the court … and you came to this court to help Johnny Depp, who is a person who is very important to your career." Ms. McMillen said, "I'm telling the truth."

Mr. Depp's lawyer, David Sherborne, referred Ms. McMillen to what she said in her testimony when she saw Ms. Heard on December 16, 2015, and asked, “If you had seen what Ms. Heard's face looked like in the photos that were shown to you, would you have given the evidence that you gave? & # 39; Ms. McMillen replied, "No, I would not."

Mr. Sherborne referred to a visit by her nurse Erin Boerum to Ms. Heard, who later remarked: “The client also states that her head is injured and that she has lost tufts of hair during the argument. The nurse (Ms. Boerum) looked briefly at Ms. Heard's scalp, but was unable to see the hematoma (bruising) described by the client. & # 39;

He asked Ms. McMillen, "Can you imagine a reason why Sister Boerum, who says she didn't see these bruises, would lie if she didn't see these bruises?" She replied, "I can't imagine why she would do that."

Mr. Sherborne then asked when Ms. McMillen saw Ms. Heard in Mr. Depp's house in LA on May 24, 2016. Ms. McMillen said that she "happened to meet her" and was at the house before Ms. Heard's arrival.

Mr. Sherborne said: “You are in Mr. Depp's house in West Hollywood and Ms. Heard shows up. She doesn't know you will be there … and you say when she showed up and didn't know you were going to be there, she wasn't wearing makeup. & # 39; Ms. McMillen said, "That's right."

Mr. Sherborne asked, "And without makeup, did you say that she had her usual beautiful skin?" Ms. McMillen said, "That's right."

Mr. Sherborne asked, "Did she (Mrs. Heard) tell you that Mr. Depp beat her up?" Ms. McMillen replied, "She said nothing of the sort."

Ms. McMillen was asked by Mr. Sherborne how Ms. Heard's face appears in a photo taken just before filming the James Corden show.

The stylist said Ms. Heard's skin looked "beautiful" and added, "This is how I remember how she looked when her makeup was done."

Mr. Sherborne said, “You were asked (by Ms. Wass) whether you had a conflict between your loyalty to Mr. Depp or your loyalty to Ms. Heard that would win. But can I ask you another question?

"Where was there a conflict between your loyalty to Mr. Depp and the need to lie to this court that would win?" Ms. McMillen replied, "I would not perjury for any reason, for anyone – friends or family, or anyone."

Also today, the court heard Depp say Heard was "as full as a Christmas goose" and beat up her "constant insults" after claiming that his wife smashed his hand with a vodka bottle and "cut my shit" fingers away & # 39 ;.

The Pirates of the Caribbean stars sent his doctor a series of texts in which he struck Heard after his finger was severed in Australia in March 2015, and accused her of marrying him for being "so desperate for success and." Fame ”.

He told Dr. David Kipper that Heard had said he was a "sad old man" and "was" and blew her up "terribly and deliberately hurtful tirades and her damn shocking treatment of the man she should love".

The actor's defamation process was also heard today by the property manager at his home in the Bahamas, who said Heard had told Depp in a row in December 2015 that his "career was over," he would die a lonely man, and "fat" him call.

Tara Roberts, Depp's estate manager on his island in the Bahamas, was also asked to testify against The Sun newspaper in the event of a defamation.

Sasha Wass QC suggested for the Sun owner's News Group Newspapers that Ms. Roberts was "totally dependent on Mr. Depp for a living," to which she replied, "No … I have other sources of income."

The lawyer asked for a passage in her testimony in which Ms. Roberts said, "I have never seen Johnny, an unusually friendly man, being violent or aggressive towards Amber or anyone else."

"You're fat and you're going to die a lonely man": Amber Heard yelled at Johnny Depp after confronting him in his Bahamas property manager's office – where she asked for help finding her wedding ring after she took it off and threw it had way

Amber Heard told Johnny Depp that his "career is over" and that he will "die a lonely man" in a blazing row, according to the property manager at Depp's home in the Bahamas.

Tara Roberts said she heard her hear "insult" the star, give it names like "fat" and say "nobody will hire you" and "you are washed up".

Ms. Roberts said the incident happened on December 29, 2015, when Depp drove into her office on her own, saying that he only had to "get away from Amber" before the actress showed up.

She said Heard asked Depp to return to their home, but he started his car and she yelled at him while standing in front of it.

Ms. Roberts said Heard "did not appear to have let him get away by blocking his way," and she called Depp's sister Christi Dembrowski because "she was unsure how far this would go."

Ms. Roberts wrote in her court statement: While I couldn't hear what caused the fight, Amber repeatedly insulted him with increasing ferocity.

“She insulted him, gave him his name, and in the midst of this rush I heard her say specifically,“ Your career is over. "" Nobody will hire you. "" You are washed up. "" Fat. "You will die as a lonely man" and also shout things that were incomprehensible.

Depp responded to the abuse by telling Heard to "go away" and "just leave me alone," but according to Ms. Roberts, "Heard's anger continued to escalate."

She continued, “I saw Amber attack Johnny, scratch him, pull him, and drag aggressively. He kept standing and shouting at her to stop and leave him alone.

& # 39; If he stepped back to leave, their attack would begin again. Throughout this incident, I have never seen Johnny hit or push Amber back, nor have he physically responded to the attacks.

She would calm down and hug and apologize. Then he would say he has to go and it would start all over again.

Finally I stepped between them. She continued to reach for him, but maybe my presence stopped it. & # 39;

Ms. Roberts added that Heard had "removed and thrown her wedding ring and asked for help finding it when they left that afternoon."

The ring was found and returned to her.

Depp paces up and down in a room, swears and kicks a closet

Ms. Wass then played a video of Depp, previously played in court, in which the actor paces up and down in a room, curses, and kicks a cabinet.

The lawyer asked Ms. Roberts, "Would you agree that it shows a different side of its character than the one you mentioned in your testimony?" Ms. Roberts replied: "No".

When asked by Ms. Wass about a detox trip to Depp's private island in the Bahamas in August 2014, Ms. Roberts confirmed that she and the actor's doctor, Dr. Dump truck, and the nurse Debbie Lloyd had spoken to.

She told the court that none of them had a discussion with her about the actor's medical affairs.

Ms. Wass then read part of the actor's medical records from September 2014, which said that Depp "was sitting in the kitchen with scratchy and bloody ankles" and had hit a whiteboard into the kitchen after a fight.

The lawyer said, "It appears that Dr. Kipper saw a different aspect of Mr. Depp than you did, would you agree?" Ms. Roberts replied, "Yes."

Ms. Wass then asked Ms. Roberts about the ex-couple's stay in the Bahamas for Christmas 2015, and the estate manager confirmed that she did not know that the relationship between Depp and Heard was very difficult at the time.

"Most violent" was heard in their relationship, says Depp's estate administrator

The lawyer said, "As for you, you suggested that Ms. Heard was the most violent, right?" Ms. Roberts replied, "Right."

She then described how she saw Depp with a cut on the bridge of her nose that she said was not bleeding, and confirmed that the actor had never suggested photographing him.

Ms. Wass then said to Ms. Roberts that Heard had the remains of a bruise or mark on her right cheek, to which Roberts replied, "It was not visible to me."

The estate manager confirmed that the fight between the couple had taken place on December 29, and she was then shown a photo of Heard's period with bruises on her face.

However, she said again that she had not seen these bruises when she saw the couple after the argument.

During an exchange with Depp's lawyer David Sherborne, Ms. Roberts confirmed that she had never seen the video clip before it was played in court and that she did not see that the actor in this clip was violent against Heard.

She also said that she had never seen Mr. Depp being violent or aggressive towards Ms. Heard on the island and that he had never beaten her.

Mr. Sherborne then said that Ms. Roberts stated in her testimony that Ms. Heard was not wearing makeup on the island, which the estate manager described as "correct".

The lawyer asked, "Have you ever seen that she had bruises on the island?" Ms. Roberts replied, "No."

Then he asked if Ms. Roberts had seen if Ms. Heard had bruises on her face at that time, to which she replied, "If she had, I would have seen it."

Mr. Sherborne said that Ms. Wass suggested that Ms. Roberts depend on Depp for a living, and told the court that her additional income came from a family business in the Bahamas that included a law firm and a dealership .

The lawyer said: "Ms. Wass suggests that you do not tell the truth because you are afraid of losing a job you love, living, you need your home on the island.

Depp's former bodyguard Malcolm Connolly (pictured today), who has worked for Depp and his family for about 16 years, said the actor was "in emotional distress and panic" after his finger was severed in Australia

& # 39; I'm done. No more! & # 39 ;: Texts by Johnny Depp to a private doctor

Texts that Johnny Depp sent to his private doctor Dr. David Kipper sent after claiming Amber Heard cut off part of his finger in Australia in March 2015:

& # 39;F *** ed, man … Had another … I just can't live like this … It's as full as a Christmas goose. I'm done. NO MORE…!!!

& # 39; The constant insults, the humiliating, degrading, heartbreaking spit that is only freed by a malicious, evil and vengeful C ** t !!!!! But, you know what… ?? Far more hurtful than their poisonous and humiliating, endless "educational" chatter … ???

Calls on Depp's accountant to provide more evidence about the actor's accounts when alleging that Heard is a "gold digger."

Just before lunch, the court heard legal disputes over whether Depp's accountant Edward White, who testified via video link from the US on Monday, could be asked to provide more information on Depp's accounts during his marriage to Heard.

Ms. Wass QC said that "one of the criticisms of Ms. Heard … is that she is a gold digger". Ms. Wass said it was suspected that this was the "motivation" for her "elaborate joke" to somehow outsmart Mr. Depp.

She added, "The position is that Ms. Heard reached an agreement of $ 7 million (£ 5.5 million) when the divorce occurred on August 15, 2016."

Ms. Wass continued if it was true that Heard "was entitled to half of the income that Mr. Depp had earned during her marriage … and the comparison was significantly less than what we are entitled to, what we say is the position, it significantly emasculates the applicant's case. "

She told the court that Depp's income between February 2015 and May 2016 was "quite substantial" and that the information NGN requested from Mr. White would result in "strikes in the heart of the applicant's case".

Depp's lawyer David Sherborne said that "Mr. Depp did not suggest that it had anything to do with being a gold digger."

However, Ms. Wass referred to Depp's testimony, in which he said that he eventually believed that Ms. Heard "had an agenda, namely to marry me to advance her own career and / or to benefit financially".

She also referred to a text that Depp had sent shortly after the couple separated, which Heard referred to as "trench, low (and) dozen" and added, "Trench is high on the list."

Ms. Wass said she had "asked Mr. White to confirm what he could do for the year in question, the year of marriage."

Mr. Justice Nicol said, "I am not inclined to ask Mr. White to provide us with more information about the income Mr. Depp has earned through marriage and their relationship."

However, the judge added, "Mr. White should be asked to provide any information that he can give about the agreement reached with Ms. Heard under the divorce agreement."

Depp was "in emotional distress" after his finger was severed in Australia and allegedly had a cigarette on his face

Earlier in the day, Depp's former bodyguard claimed in court that Depp said Heard cut my finger after he smashed his hand with a vodka bottle and stuck a cigarette in the face during a blazing row.

Malcolm Connolly, who has worked for Depp and his family for around 16 years, said the actor was "in emotional distress and panic" after his finger was severed in Australia.

The incident is one of 14 violent behavior allegations Heard has raised against her former husband that is at the heart of his defamation lawsuit against The Sun newspaper, which is being tried in the London High Court.

Mr. Connolly said in a testimony when he and another security guard arrived at the property, Depp said to him, "Look at my finger. She cut my finger off. She smashed my hand with a bottle of vodka. & # 39;

After the incident in Australia, Mr. Connolly said the actor also told him that Heard had lit a cigarette on his face and had seen a sign. It took place just a month after Heard and Depp's wedding in Las Vegas in February 2015.

The security official said Heard's account of the incident was "no match" to his memory, and when he got to the house, the actress "had no marks on her face or arms".

He said he arrived at the property around 1:30 p.m. after receiving an urgent call from Mr. Depp's now deceased chief of the security team, Jerry Judge, who said, "Malcolm, get in the car, pull the boss out of the Situation out. "

Mr. Connolly said, "I could hear the turmoil inside. I opened the unlocked door and saw Johnny in the foyer of the house. He and Amber screamed at each other.

“She was wearing some kind of green silk night thing, you could call it panties. I yelled at Johnny, "Come with me, you come with me."

Then I took his arm and tried to get it out, but it came loose. I said words again with the effect of "Johnny, come with me". It wasn't easy, but I took him outside.

"I had the car door open and when we were outside, Johnny said words to me with the effect" Look at my finger. She cut my finger off. She smashed my hand with a bottle of vodka. I saw his finger and it was a mess. & # 39;

Mr. Connolly's statement continued: "Amber appeared at the door and then came screaming and crying to the car and shouted words like" Will you just leave it like that, you fucking coward? "

Then she said: I love you, I love you. Are you going to end this way? & # 39 ;. It didn't make much sense – for a second she asked Johnny not to leave the house, and then she yelled at him for running away.

& # 39; She was absolutely hysterical. I was afraid that she might start throwing objects at Johnny or at myself as I had seen her before.

For example, I had seen her turn a fork in Johnny's general direction; another time I remember she threw a lighter on him, another time a can of Coke. I knew we had to get out of there as soon as possible. & # 39;

Depp's bodyguard claims that Heard "had no marks on the face or arms".

Mr. Connolly said he could see Heard's face "very clearly" and added: "She had no marks on her face or arms. She did not look in physical need.

& # 39; I was much more concerned about Johnny. He was obviously in emotional distress and panic. However, he was not so drunk or crazy about it and easily stood alone and had a conversation. & # 39;

The security guard said the team knew that the real cause of Depp's injury would create "extremely bad publicity," and that Mr. Richter suggested in the hospital that the actor hurt his finger while cutting onions.

Mr. Connolly said: "I found it fairly obvious that this is not true given the seriousness of the injury and suggested that he put it in a car door. However, we went with the onion cover story. The specialist didn't believe us for a second. & # 39;

He said Depp had not returned to the house in the next few days and had instead lived with him in Mr. Connolly's apartment.

In desperate reaction, Depp's security team said they urgently needed to go to his home.

Sasha Wass QC, representative of The Suns Publishing News Group Newspapers, asked Mr. Connolly about the incident in Australia.

She said Mr. Connolly had heard from Jerry Judge, Depp's security chief at the time, that "they urgently needed to go to Mr. Depp's house." Mr. Connolly said when he arrived at the house, "there was an argument".

Ms. Wass asked whether Mr Connolly "could understand what Mr Depp said in the course of this argument".

He replied, "No, because I was outside … I could hear a riot, but I couldn't understand the actual words." Ms. Wass asked: "Was there a time when you came into the house?" Mr. Connolly replied: "Yes."

Johnny Depp's security guard remembers the actor's "need" after his finger was severed

One of Johnny Depp's security teams told the High Court that the actor was "in emotional distress and panic" after his finger was cut in an incident in Australia.

The March 2015 episode is one of 14 allegations of violent behavior Amber Heard has made against her former husband that is at the heart of his defamation lawsuit against The Sun newspaper.

Malcolm Connolly, who has worked for Mr. Depp and his family for around 16 years, said in a testimony when he and another security guard arrived at the property, the Hollywood star said: "Look at my finger.

“She cut my finger off. She smashed my hand with a bottle of vodka. & # 39;

Mr. Connolly said the actor also told him Ms. Heard had put a cigarette in his face and he saw once.

The security guard said Ms. Heard's report of the incident was "no match" to his memory, and when he got to the house, the actress "had no marks on her face or arms".

He said he arrived at the property around 1:30 p.m. after receiving an urgent call from Mr. Depp's now deceased chief of the security team, Jerry Judge, who said, "Malcolm, get in the car, pull the boss out of the Situation out. "

Mr. Connolly said, "I could hear the turmoil inside. I opened the unlocked door and saw Johnny in the foyer of the house.

& # 39; He and Amber screamed at each other. She was wearing some kind of green silk night thing, you could call it panties.

"I screamed Johnny words with the effect" Come with me, you come with me ".

Then I took his arm and tried to get it out, but it came loose. I said words again with the effect of "Johnny, come with me". It wasn't easy, but I took him outside.

"I had the car door open and when we were outside, Johnny said words to me with the effect" Look at my finger. She cut my finger off. She smashed my hand with a bottle of vodka. I saw his finger and it was a mess. & # 39;

Mr. Connolly's statement continued: "Amber appeared at the door and then came screaming and crying to the car and shouted words like" Will you just leave it like that, you fucking coward? "

Then she said: I love you, I love you. Are you going to end this way? & # 39 ;.

"It didn't make much sense – for a second she asked Johnny not to leave the house, and then she yelled at him for running away.

& # 39; She was absolutely hysterical. I was afraid that she might start throwing objects at Johnny or at myself as I had seen her before.

For example, I had seen her turn a fork in Johnny's general direction; another time I remember she threw a lighter on him, another time a can of Coke.

"I knew we had to get out of there as soon as possible."

Mr. Connolly said he could see Ms. Heard's face "very clearly" and added: "She had no marks on her face or arms. She did not look in physical need.

& # 39; I was much more concerned about Johnny. He was obviously in emotional distress and panic. However, he was not so drunk or crazy about it and easily stood alone and had a conversation. & # 39;

The security guard said the team knew that the real cause of Mr. Depp's injury would be "extremely poor publicity," and that Mr. Richter suggested in the hospital that the actor hurt his finger while cutting onions.

Mr. Connolly said: "I found it fairly obvious that this is not true given the seriousness of the injury and suggested that he put it in a car door.

“However, we chose the onion cover story. The specialist didn't believe us for a second. & # 39;

He said that Mr. Depp had not returned to the house in the next few days and had instead lived with him in Mr. Connolly's apartment.

Mr. Connolly said: "It is difficult to say with Johnny because it takes a certain amount of alcohol." He added: "He didn't seem so drunk to me."

Mr. Connolly said that after he arrived at the house in Australia in March 2015, Depp "had a conversation with me, like a cube".

Ms. Wass asked if Depp seemed rational, and the personal security officer said, "I don't know anything about rational because he was in shock."

The lawyer then asked whether Depp appeared to have used drugs and whether Mr. Connolly was "familiar with his drug habit." Mr. Connolly said, "I was never privy to this kind of behavior … I never saw it."

The bodyguard denies claims that Depp was "covered and disheveled in blood, paint, and dirt."

Ms. Wass suggested: "He was absolutely dirty, wasn't he? Messy … full of blood, paint, and dirt and he was disheveled and didn't look like he had washed himself. Was he really dirty? & # 39; Mr. Connolly said that this was not the case.

Ms. Wass suggested to Mr. Connolly that his evidence in his testimony – that Mr. Depp told him: “She cut my finger off. She smashed my hand with a bottle of vodka & # 39; not true. Mr. Connolly replied: "I can only say that I was there, I saw it."

Ms. Wass said Depp had "found various possible explanations to give other people how his finger was damaged". Mr. Connolly said that these statements were "only for the protection of Amber".

He added that the story that Depp put his finger in the & # 39; accordion doors & # 39; trapped in the house, & # 39; my story & # 39; was.

Ms. Wass asked: "You made up this lie, right?" Mr. Connolly said, "Yes."

Ms. Wass then brought Mr. Connolly to a text that Depp sent to his private doctor David Kipper shortly after losing his fingertip, which read: "F *****, man. Had another. I just can't live like that. It is as full as a Christmas goose !!!

& # 39; I'm done. NO MORE!!! The constant insults, the humiliating, degrading, heartbreaking spit that is only freed from a malicious, evil and vengeful C *** !!!!! & # 39;

The message added: & # 39; I cut off the top of my middle finger … what should I do! ?? Except of course going to the hospital … & # 39;

Ms. Wass asked: "Would you agree that Mr. Depp apparently accepted that he cut off his fingertip in this text?"

Mr. Connolly said: "Yes, that's how it is worded."

Depp asked his assistant for "more white things".

Ms. Wass then read five minutes later a text that Depp had sent to his assistant Nathan Holmes, which read: “Need more white stuff as soon as possible, brother. And the e-business. & # 39;

Mr. Connolly said the reference to "white stuff" was "probably cocaine" and "e-business" was an indication of ecstasy.

Ms. Wass then suggested that the house was "completely destroyed", but Mr Connolly said: "I have never seen the house completely destroyed. I only got to the front foyer. & # 39;

The lawyer asked, "You couldn't see any paint that was graffiti all over the house? You couldn't see any damage? & # 39; Mr. Connolly said, "No."

He also said he hadn't seen broken windows on the property. Ms. Wass then said, "Ms. Heard was unharmed to you." Mr. Connolly replied: "That's right, yes."

Ms. Wass asked, "What was your opportunity to look at Ms. Heard to say that?" Mr. Connolly said when he "tried to get Johnny in the car, Amber came screaming and screaming to the front door".

Ms. Wass asked if he was "absolutely certain" that he hadn't seen any scratches on Heard's arms, which Mr. Connolly said he was.

She also asked if Mr. Connolly saw a "bruise on her (heard) face" to which he said he had not.

Ms. Wass asked Mr. Connolly for an audio recording, part of which was played in court and recorded during the March 2015 incident in Australia.

The court heard a male voice that Mr. Connolly recognized as Depp's voice and shouted incomprehensibly, and the security guard said the actor was "in shock" at the time.

Ms. Wass said the recording was made over five hours and included various conversations with Depp, his doctor, and Mr. Richter, all of which were heard in full tone.

14-time Johnny Depp is accused of attacking Amber Heard

1. Early 2013

Heard said Depp was completely sober until early 2013, when he was said to have hit her for the first time when they were in Los Angeles.

She claims that Depp later cried and apologized, telling her that sometimes he turns into "the monster" when he snaps.

Depp "explicitly denied" hitting Heard, saying that in early 2013, he "limited himself to drinking wine and consuming marijuana after being sober from about December 2011 to August 2012".

March 2, 8, 2013

Heard Claims Depp was furious that she had hung a painting of her ex-partner Tasya Van Ree on her bed in her LA home, then tried to set the painting on fire and hit her so hard that blood came from her lip on the wall & # 39 ;.

However, Depp says he only asked Heard to remove the painting "out of courtesy" from the bedroom, and she had an "extreme reaction."

He also says that a text he later sent that described the evening as a "disco carnage" should "appease Ms. Heard" and not an excuse for alleged violence.

June 3, 2013

Heard and Depp were in Hicksville, USA, with a group of people, including Heard's sister Whitney and Depp's assistant Nathan Holmes.

According to Heard, Depp who "took drugs" became "angry" and "jealous" when one of her friends touched her. Then he threw glasses on her, tore off her dress, and damaged the cabin in which they lived.

Depp says he drank and took magic mushrooms, as did Heard and her friends who also took MDMA.

He claims Heard's boyfriend touched Heard in an "extremely sexual way" and spoke to her to ask her to stop.

May 4, 24, 2014

The couple took a private plan from Boston to LA: According to Heard, Depp, who had been drinking a lot, threw objects on her during the flight, slid a chair on her, slapped her, and kicked her in the back before going to the bathroom.

Depp says Heard "started talking to him" when he sketched in a notebook and then tried to "pat her on the floor playfully," whereupon Heard took "great insult" and "continued to verbally abuse him" .

August 5, 17, 2014

The couple went to the Bahamas, Depp says, to "cure his addiction to pain relievers," although Heard claims he tried trying other medications.

According to Heard, Depp had "multiple manic episodes" and his private doctor had to be scanned to help. She claims he hit, kicked, and grabbed his hair during an attack.

Depp claims Heard prevented a nurse from treating him while he was withdrawing.

December 6, 17, 2014

According to Heard, Depp was "violent" against her in LA and later wrote that he was a "wild savage" and a "madman". Depp denies any allegation of violence and says NGN "has not provided information about the alleged violence".

January 7, 25, 2015

While the couple were in Tokyo, Japan, Heard claims Depp had pushed and hit and grabbed her hair before standing over her and screaming while she was lying on the floor – which Mr. Depp denies.

8. Around 3 to 5 March 2015

Depp is said to have repeatedly attacked Heard after a dispute over his alleged use of MDMA during a three-day trip to Australia. She says he stayed up all night, took pills and drank, and attacked her again the next morning.

The following night, Depp shoved her into a ping pong table, tore off her nightgown, and attacked her before hitting a phone against a wall and severing the top of his middle finger.

She also claims that he wrote messages from his finger all over the house in a mixture of color and blood, which Depp admits while "in shock" and "urinated all over the house to write messages". what he denies.

Depp says Heard was in "persistent and extreme anger" after a dispute over an agreement after the wedding. He says he "broke my sobriety" with a glass of vodka before Heard threw a bottle at him, parted his fingertip, and stuck a cigarette on his cheek.

March 9, 2015

According to Heard, Depp got "angry" when they were in LA with her sister and started destroying things in the house before he "hit her hard and repeatedly". She also claims that he tried to push her sister down the stairs before meeting Heard again.

However, Depp says Heard "scolded" him when he tried to walk, throwing a can of Red Bull at him and slapping him in the face before finally leaving.

August 10, 2015

While on the East and Oriental Express in Southeast Asia, Heard claims that Depp "quarreled" with her, hit her and pressed her neck against a wall, "which made her fear for her life" – which Depp denies.

November 11th, 26th, 2015

In LA, Depp Heard's shirt is said to have torn and "thrown across the room", also thrown a wine glass and a "heavy glass carafe" on her and pushed her over a chair, causing her head to hit a wall. Depp says they were in LA for Thanksgiving, but denies any allegations of abuse.

December 12, 15, 2015

Heard claims that Depp threw a carafe at her LA penthouse, then hit her and pulled her through the apartment by the hair, allegedly pulling "big tufts of hair" from Heard's scalp.

She says he then followed her upstairs and knocked her to the ground while he shouted "You think you're a damn tough guy" before he hit her head.

Heard says when she told Depp that she wanted to leave, he grabbed her and shouted, "I'll kill you – I'll kill you, can you hear me?"

However, Depp says, "Ms. Heard invented the alleged violence," and incorrectly claims that "blonde hair on the floor is her hair."

He also claims that "the only violence committed on that date was by Ms. Heard" that is said to have "violently attacked" him.

Apr 13l 21, 2016

According to Heard, Depp was late for their birthday party at their LA home, "drunk and drugged," and they had an argument after the guests left.

She claims that he threw a bottle of champagne on her and pushed her to the ground several times before leaving a note that said "Happy F ****** Birthday".

Depp says that after meeting his new manager and accountants, he was about two hours late for the party and did not take any drugs, but was "shocked by what he learned about his business affairs at the meeting."

He claims Heard "drank a lot" and attacked him while reading in bed and slapped him in the face four times before he grabbed her arms to stop her.

Depp says Heard or one of her friends "vomited in the bed of Mr. Depp and Ms. Heard the next day" and that Heard later told building manager Kevin Murphy that it was "just a harmless prank" – which he indicated that he "then decided" to divorce Ms. Heard & # 39 ;.

May 14, 21, 2016

Depp arrived at her LA apartment, supposedly "drunk and high" while Heard was there with friends.

According to Heard, Depp got "very angry" and threw her cell phone at her and slapped her face before "smashing everything he could" with a magnum of champagne.

He says he went into the apartment with two security guards to pick up his belongings after Heard and her sister "tried" repeatedly to contact him.

Depp claims that his two security guards entered the room when they heard Heard scream and saw her "yell repeatedly" stop beating me, Johnny, "while he was 20 feet away in the kitchen.

He also says that two police officers who visited the apartment after the incident "did not see any injuries or bruises or swellings".

She said, "And you're trying to be fair to both parties – isn't it just that you come here to support your boss?" Mr. Connolly replied: "Not at all, no."

The security team said Depp was not well and needed help

Ms. Wass said that during part of the recorded conversation, Mr. Richter could say: "He is not feeling well, we have to help him in every possible way."

Mr. Connolly confirmed that he agreed with Mr. Judge's remark that the actor was not well.

Ms. Wass said that Mr. Richter could also say: "He basically cut off the fingertip of a broken bottle completely, and we found the piece and had to put it on ice."

Mr. Connolly said he didn't remember and his memory was that Depp told him that Heard had cut off his finger with a broken bottle.

Ms. Wass then asked Mr. Connolly about a train trip to Southeast Asia, which was Depp and Heard's honeymoon in July 2015.

She read a Heard diary note that read, "We finally fell asleep together, smashed in desperate childish anger, fear, and love."

Heard told in a diary of a "terrible" fight

The note continued: “Our fight was terrible. Johnny … found himself with his shirt around my neck at some point. Amazing to think about the precision and coordination that was necessary considering the tight circumstances …

"I don't even know how I got that huge, pretty annoying knot on the back of my head. F ***, I hate that. & # 39; The note closed: "Where are my lines, do I still have any?"

Ms. Wass asked where Mr. Connolly was on the train and he said he was "about three or four doors away" from the couple.

The lawyer asked, "So if there was a fight at 3:30 in the morning, would you have known it?"

Mr. Connolly replied: "I never would have known."

David Sherborne, der Depp vertrat, fragte dann Herrn Connolly: "Haben Sie jemals Verletzungen von Frau Heard auf der Reise mit dem Südostasienzug gesehen?"

Der Wachmann sagte "Nein, niemals", bevor er bestätigte, dass Frau Heard ihm nicht mitgeteilt hatte, dass sie irgendwelche Verletzungen erlitten hatte, und dass Herr Depp sie geschlagen hatte.

Herr Sherborne fragte dann: "Wenn sie Verletzungen erlitten hätte, hätten Sie sie oder hätten Sie sie nicht gesehen?"

Herr Connolly antwortete: "Ich hätte sie gesehen."

Depp hatte nach dem Vorfall mit den Fingern „große Schmerzen, viel Bedrängnis und Schock“

Herr Sherborne erkundigte sich dann nach dem Vorfall in Australien im März 2015 und verwies auf die Aufnahme, die Herr Connolly gespielt hatte und die laut Anwalt von Heard aufgenommen wurde. Herr Connolly sagte, Depp habe "große Schmerzen, viel Bedrängnis und Schock".

Er sagte, das erste, was Depp zu ihm sagte, als er versuchte, ihn aus dem Haus zu entfernen, war "gib mir eine Minute". Herr Connolly sagte, der Schauspieler stehe dann in der Einfahrt und halte seine Hand. Er sagte: "Sie hat mir nur den Finger abgeschnitten."

Herr Sherborne sagte, Herr Connolly habe "mit einer schwierigen Situation zu tun" und fragte, welche Erfahrungen er mit ähnlichen Situationen habe. Herr Connolly sagte: "Ich bin ein ehemaliger Gefängnisbeamter von HMP Pentonville."

Er erklärte, dass er "in Extraktion geschult wurde, ich bin in Befriedung geschult … Blutergussmuster erkennen". Herr Connolly fügte hinzu, dass er "von der Einrichtung, vom Innenministerium" geschult wurde.

Herr Sherborne verwies auf die "anderen Erklärungen" dafür, wie Depp die Spitze seines Fingers verlor, und fragte Herrn Connolly, warum sie erfunden wurden.

Herr Connolly sagte, sie sollten "die Produktion schützen", an der Depp zu dieser Zeit beteiligt war, ebenso wie Heard.

Er fügte hinzu, dass er "im Gefängnis gesehen" habe, dass "das übliche Opfermuster darin besteht, den Täter aus irgendeinem Grund zu schützen, Sie kennen das psychologische Mobbing … sie erfüllen die gleichen Kriterien, sie geben niemals die Informationen weiter".

Herr Sherborne fragte nach dem "Zigarettenbrand" auf Depps Wange nach dem Vorfall, den Herr Connolly auf dem Gesicht des Schauspielers gesehen habe.

Der Anwalt wandte sich dann dem Protokoll der Aufnahme zu, die Heard anscheinend gemacht hatte und auf der Mr. Judge zu hören ist: "Sie hat ihn geschlagen, sie hat ihn gestern geschlagen."

Herr Sherborne fragte: "Frau hörte, wie sie Herrn Depp schlug oder schlug, haben Sie das schon einmal gehört?" Herr Connolly antwortete: "Ich habe es schon einmal gehört, ja."

Herr Sherborne fragte, ob es ein "einmaliges" Ereignis sei, zu dem Herr Connolly sagte, es sei "in Australien und in Los Angeles" geschehen.

Er fragte Herrn Connolly auch nach einer SMS, die an einem unbekannten Datum von Herrn Depp an ihn gesendet wurde und lautete: „Bitte bringen Sie mich jetzt aus diesem Raum, sie hat mich ungefähr zehnmal geschlagen. Kann nicht mehr ertragen. & # 39;

Herr Sherborne fragte: "Nach Ihrer Erfahrung, Herr Connolly, über mehrere Jahre hinweg mit Frau Heard und Herrn Depp zu tun zu haben, war dies eine einmalige Art von Text oder ein Gespräch mit Herrn Depp?" Herr Connolly sagte: "Nein."

Herr Sherborne fragte Herrn Connolly: "Haben Sie jemals gesehen, wie Herr Depp Frau Heard zu irgendeinem Zeitpunkt körperlich angegriffen oder geschlagen hat?"

Herr Connolly sagte: „Nein – und ich würde es nicht tolerieren, wenn ein Mann eine Frau schlägt. Egal wer er war, das würde ich einfach nicht tolerieren. & # 39; Herr Sherborne fragte: "Nicht einmal, wenn es Ihr Chef war?"

Herr Connolly antwortete: „Nicht einmal, wenn er mein Chef ist. Es ist mir egal, ob er der Papst ist. & # 39; Herr Sherborne fragte dann: "Nicht einmal, wenn Ihr Lebensunterhalt davon abhängt?"

Herr Connolly sagte: „Ich arbeite für Johnny … erst vor drei Tagen wurde mir ein Job in Peru angeboten. Ich bin für mein Einkommen nicht auf Johnny angewiesen. & # 39;

Herr Sherborne fragte ihn nach dem Vorschlag, "Sie seien unter Druck gesetzt worden, zu lügen und auf Johnnys Seite zu treten", und ob dies wahr sei. Herr Connolly sagte: "Absolut falsch."

Die Beweise von Herrn Connolly kamen am sechsten Tag des Prozesses gegen die Verleumdungsklage des Schauspielers gegen die Zeitung The Sun in einem Artikel vom April 2018, in dem er als "Schlägerin" bezeichnet wurde.

Die heutigen Beweise kommen einen Tag, nachdem Depp endlich mit der Aussage fertig war und behauptete, dass die von Heard, 34, erhobenen Vorwürfe häuslicher Gewalt ihren Missbrauch gegenüber ihm "widerspiegelten".

Am letzten Tag seiner Beweisaufnahme vor den Royal Courts of Justice in London gestern während seines Verleumdungsverfahrens gegen The Sun sagte Depp: "Es schien, als wäre alles, was sie mir vorwerfen würde, etwas, das sie mir angetan hatte."

Der Schauspieler beschuldigte Heard außerdem, nach ihrer 30. Geburtstagsfeier in einer Reihe einen Schlag auf ihn geworfen zu haben, nur wenige Stunden nachdem er während eines "schlechten" Geschäftstreffens erfahren hatte, dass er 650 Millionen Dollar (514 Millionen Pfund) verloren hatte.

Gestern hat der High Court auch gehört, dass Depp eine "bemerkenswerte" Fähigkeit hat, sich trotz "viel Alkohols" nicht zu betrinken, und dass Kokain ihn einfach "auf ein normales Niveau gebracht hat, auf dem normale Menschen operieren könnten".

Depp verklagt den Herausgeber der Sun News News Newspapers (NGN) und seinen Chefredakteur Dan Wootton wegen eines Artikels im April 2018, in dem er als "Schlägerin" bezeichnet wurde.

Sein Anwalt David Sherborne verwies gestern auf eine "geheime Aufnahme" des ehemaligen Ehepaares in San Francisco im Juli 2016, nachdem sie sich getrennt hatten und Heard eine einstweilige Verfügung gegen den Schauspieler erhalten hatte.

In der Aufnahme ist zu hören, dass Heard sagte, es sei "unglaublich vorstellbar", dass sie entweder "in einem geheimen Kampfclub" gewesen sei oder "geplant habe, dies drei Jahre lang zu tun … nur um es zum richtigen Zeitpunkt aufzubewahren". Als sie nicht um Geld bat, fügte sie hinzu: "Niemand wird das glauben."

Depp beschrieb Heards Worte als 'ein umgekehrtes Geständnis' und fügte hinzu: 'Es schien, als wäre alles, was sie mir vorwerfen würde, etwas, das sie mir angetan hatte, also begann ich, diese Art von Muster zu sehen, eine Spiegelung, und als sie das sagte Ich war auf jeden Fall wirklich überrascht. & # 39;

Herr Sherborne sagte, dass Depp in der Aufnahme auch sagen kann, dass Sie mich verarscht haben, Mann. Dies soll sich auf einen Vorfall nach Heards 30. Geburtstagsfeier im Penthouse des Paares in LA am 21. April 2016 beziehen .

Der Schauspieler wird beschuldigt, eine Flasche Champagner auf Heard geworfen, sie an den Haaren gepackt und während einer Reihe geschubst zu haben, nachdem er spät zur Party nach Hause gekommen war. Depp bestreitet die Vorwürfe.

Der Schauspieler sagte, dass er sich bei einem Geschäftstreffen am Tag von Heards Party "in einem frühen Stadium" befand, als er von einem neuen Geschäftsleiter herausfand, dass "die ehemaligen Geschäftsleiter ziemlich viel von meinem Geld genommen hatten".

Johnny Depp v The Sun: Key issues in libel trial

Hollywood star Johnny Depp's libel claim against The Sun enters its second week on Monday. These are the key issues the trial judge, Mr Justice Nicol, has to determine.

– Whether the April 2018 article by the tabloid's executive editor Dan Wootton was defamatory of Depp. Under the Defamation Act 2013, a statement is not defamatory unless its publication causes 'serious harm to the reputation of the claimant'.

– The Sun's publisher, News Group Newspapers (NGN), is defending the claim and relying on a defence of truth. It is for the publisher to prove that the allegations made in the article are 'substantially true'.

– The meaning of the article, which is defined as what it would mean to the 'reasonable reader', will have to be determined by the judge. But NGN's lawyers say the differences between the rival meanings contended by each side are 'not significant' and the outcome of the case will therefore not turn on meaning.

– Depp's case is that the article bore the meaning that he was 'guilty, on overwhelming evidence, of serious domestic violence against his then wife, causing significant injury and leading to her fearing for her life, for which he was constrained to pay no less than £5 million to compensate her, and which resulted in him being subjected to a continuing court restraining order; and for that reason is not fit to work in the film industry'. He strenuously denies the allegations and claims he 'has never hit or committed any acts of physical violence against Ms Heard'.

– The meaning which NGN will seek to prove is true is that the Claimant beat his wife Amber Heard, causing her to suffer significant injury and on occasion leading her to fearing for her life. They rely on 14 separate allegations of violence and allege more generally that Depp was 'controlling and verbally and physically abusive' towards Ms Heard, particularly when he was under the influence of alcohol and or drugs, throughout their relationship. NGN's lawyers say an important issue for the judge to decide will be what substances Depp was using during the relationship. They contend that he frequently lost control of himself, partly because of his heavy drug and alcohol use, and also that his memory has been impaired by his heavy use of drugs.

– If Depp wins his case, the judge will have to decide what level of compensation he should receive for the harm to his reputation and for the 'distress, hurt and humiliation caused'. There is an upper limit on general damages for libel of £300,000 to £325,000. However, if he succeeds, Depp may also be entitled to aggravated damages. The actor is also asking for a final injunction against NGN, who his legal team say 'have retained the article on their website and maintained their allegation to the bitter end'.

'Since Pirates (Of The Caribbean) 2 and 3, I had – and this is ludicrous to have to state, it's quite embarrassing – apparently I had made $650million and when I sacked them, for the right reasons, I had not only lost $650million, but I was $100million (£79 million) in the hole because they (the previous business managers) had not paid the government my taxes for 17 years.'

Depp was also shown a photograph, apparently taken by his ex-wife, which showed him in August 2014 with 'ice cream spilled all over my leg' shortly before he was due to go to the Bahamas for a detox.

The actor said the picture was taken at a time when he had been working 17-hour days and was 'very tired, falling asleep'.

The court also heard evidence from Depp's former personal assistant, Stephen Deuters, who alleged Heard 'was the abuser in the relationship'.

Mr Deuters, who is now European president of Depp's production company, Infinitum Nihil, said that during the period in which Depp is alleged to have been abusive towards Heard, he saw her 'on many occasions' and 'at no point' did she 'ever mention any physical abuse'.

He told that court that he was 'extremely surprised and outraged' when it became public that Heard had filed for a restraining order.

Mr Deuters described the couple's tempestuous relationship as 'not great', saying: 'I think they were two people that were in love with each other that shouldn't have been together.'

The front desk supervisor at Depp's LA penthouse building also gave evidence that she saw 'no visible injuries whatsoever to Heard's face' three days after Mr Depp allegedly hit his ex-wife in the face with her own mobile phone on May 21 2016.

Trinity Esparza said the first time she saw any marks on Heard's face that week was on May 27, the day the Aquaman actress appeared in court to obtain a restraining order against Depp, which 'disturbed' Ms Esparza.

Ms Esparza, who owns the company that provided concierge services at the Eastern Columbia building where Depp previously owned five apartments, said in her witness statement that she 'saw and interacted with Heard on May 23, May 24 and May 25 with a clear and unmarked face'.

Sasha Wass QC, representing NGN, said to Ms Esparza: 'Isn't it more accurate to say you saw her earlier in the week and you didn't notice it?' Ms Esparza replied: 'That is not accurate, I saw her very clearly.'

Ms Esparza also told the court that she saw 'a number of marks on Ms Heard's body' – including bruises on her neck, plasters on her arm and a mark below her left eye – on a day in June or July 2016, shortly after Tesla founder Elon Musk left the building at around 9am looking 'like he had just woken up with messy hair'.

Depp is suing NGN and Mr Wootton over the publication of an article on April 27 2018 with the headline: 'Gone Potty: How can JK Rowling be 'genuinely happy' casting wife beater Johnny Depp in the new Fantastic Beasts film?'NGN is defending the article as true, and says Depp was 'controlling and verbally and physically abusive towards Heard, particularly when he was under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs'.
