A court has heard a recording of Johnny Depp crying "like an animal" after attacking Amber Heard in a plane in a cocaine and alcohol tirade for cheating on him with "rapist" James Franco.
On the second day of Mr. Depp's blockbuster defamation process in London, he was asked about the Boston plane incident in May 2014 in which he was said to have attacked Ms. Heard on a flight from Boston to LA after using cocaine, whiskey, and pills had champagne before fainting in the toilet of the plane.
He denied shouting about how Heard liked to be fucked on the set and made vulgar comments while grilling her about sleeping with Adderall Diaries co-star Franco in 2014.
Sun lawyer Sasha Wass QC said Mr. Depp had given "vulgar references to the genitals of (Ms. Heard)" and referred to her as a "doer" on a flight from Boston to LA in front of crew members.
He denied starting the attack and commented, "That's quite a bit of your imagination."
A recording of Mr. Depp, who apparently howled during the flight, was also played during the afternoon session.
Ms. Wass QC told Mr. Depp that it was him in the recording, but the actor replied, "I had been drinking alcohol before the flight, but my behavior was not supposed to be … I drew art sketches in my notebook."
Afterwards Ms. Wass also read out a text that Mr. Depp sent to his friend Paul Bettany on May 30, 2014 and read: “I will really stop the alcohol thing, darling.
“I drank all night before picking up Amber to fly to LA last Sunday. Ugly buddy. No food for days. Powder. Half a bottle of whiskey. A thousand Red Bull and vodkas, pills, 2 bottles of champagne on the plane and what do you get? & # 39;
Mr. Depp claimed he was concerned about Franco because Ms. Heard described him as "creepy and raped" when they appeared side by side in the Stoner comedy Pineapple Express.
He seemed to be claiming that Ms. Heard had told him that she had to flee Franco's progress while filming – allegations that Ms. Wass described as "invented on the spot."
Several women have accused Franco of sexual abuse and harassment, although the actor has denied the allegations.
In other developments in today's process:
- The Sun lawyer asked Depp about Heard's allegations that he and Marilyn Manson took his daughter to school and then did a 24-hour cocaine attack.
- Court heard Depp swap "joke texts" with British actor Paul Bettany about "fucking Heard's burned corpse afterwards to make sure she was dead" and drowned his "witches" ex-wife.
- He admitted that he had joked about putting Heard's dog in a microwave, but denied holding the tiny Yorkshire Terrier pistol out of a car window and making "howling noises";
- He was accused of beating Heard when he tried to set fire to a painting of her "lesbian ex-partner".
- Depp denied having beaten his ex-wife three times after laughing at his infamous "Wino Forever" tattoo.
- The actor reportedly got angry after a woman petted Heard in a trailer park during an MDMA trip.
- Heard wrote an unsent email to Depp saying she lived with him with life with & # 39; Jekyll and Hyde & # 39; compared.

Amber Heard and James Franco attend the Adderall Diaries premiere in 2015. Johnny Depp accused Ms. Heard of sleeping with her co-star while filming
A recording of Mr. Depp, who apparently howled in flight, was also played during the afternoon session at the High Court
In 2019, two former students from Franco's now closed film and drama school filed a lawsuit against him and his partners, claiming the program was little more than a plan to provide him and his male staff with a pool of young female actors Making available could take advantage of. & # 39;
Depp described his suspicions that Ms. Heard had an extramarital affair and said: “She told me many things that were very negative about Mr. Franco, that he had tried to kiss her (after the Pineapple Express filming) and sexual progress In this movie, she said he was a creep and a rap or whatever. & # 39;
& # 39; A rapist? You sure didn't use that word? & # 39; Ms. Wass asked.
"You just made an extremely important statement. You invented it right away, right? & # 39;
Depp replied: & # 39; No, it's just a word that came out to describe what she said to me. He leaned forward and said I'm going to kiss you now and she had to run away from his progress at some point and he was somehow not quitting and she felt that he was creepy and Rapey was the word.
"When I said the word rapist, it was because Rapey was the word she used."
He added: "I suspected Ms. Heard had an affair with Mr. Franco and has since been confirmed to be."
The court heard that Ms. Heard had made efforts to prevent Depp from seeing intimate scenes in her films because he would "lose" them.
"Your concern about romantic scenes was pretty big, wasn't it?" Ms. Wass asked.
"Yes, I have concerns," said Depp.
“She was worried that you would lose it. Can you imagine why she thought you might lose it? & # 39; asked the lawyer.
"She doesn't want me to lose it, which means I don't get jealous," came the answer.
"You screamed profanity on the plane," said Ms. Wass.
"I yelled at Ms. Heard with my security, two pilots, with profanity … A stewardess? I don't agree with what you're saying, 'said Depp.
"You said she'd like to be fucked on the set and you vulgarly referred to her genitals," said Ms. Wass.
"It's quite a part of their imagination," came the answer.
The Hollywood star is said to have kicked a chair so violently that he turned and hit Ms. Heard before storming into the bathroom and passed out on the floor drunk.
“I suggest Ms. Heard has moved the seats more than once to get away from you. They first threw ice cubes on them and kicked one of the chairs so hard that it turned and hit them, ”said Ms. Wass.
“They were furious and wanted to know how much she liked getting out with James Franco. You were so angry that she would not engage in this discussion that you hit her.
& # 39; You have her & # 39; Go-getter called Sl ** and a Wh ***. Do you agree? & # 39; asked the lawyer.
"No, Ma & # 39; am, I wouldn't," said Depp.
& # 39; Not under these circumstances I would not. There are ways where something like that could come out of my mouth, depending on what came out of your mouth before, but I didn't get angry on the flight in front of all these people. & # 39;
"Meanwhile, you asked the flight attendant for more alcohol and oxygen," said the QC.
"I only asked for an oxygen tank for a lark," Depp said.
"What's so funny about an oxygen tank?" Ms. Wass asked.
“If you put the oxygen tank on and turn the nozzle, you will be hit with pure oxygen.
"I didn't abuse any drug, I inhaled oxygen and I showed them to them, I flew with the crew and the pilot beforehand and I had done it before," replied the actor.

Amber Heard (left, arriving at the High Court; right, leaving the High Court) took the photo at her LA home in 2013 before the couple argued again about his drug and alcohol use
Ms. Wass asked: “You finally went to the toilet, into the plane's bathroom, and passed out.
“Did your assistant Nathan Holmes ever wake you when you passed out in the bathroom?
"I've never passed out on the toilet, not to relieve myself, but to lean on the toilet or sleep on the floor," came the answer.
Photos of Johnny Depps' lifestyle full of drinks and drugs were shown to the high court today, including an image of Amber Heard showing half a liter of whiskey, four lines of cocaine, and his skull pill box, ready to be consumed at 1:37 p.m.
34-year-old Heard took the photo at her LA home in 2013 before the couple argued again about his drug and alcohol use – the afternoon he was supposed to make a documentary about Rolling Stone Keith Richards.
The court was also shown a picture of Depp passing out next to his bed when the 57-year-old actor was peppered with questions about his extensive alcohol and drug use by lawyers who worked for The Sun.
Depp commented for a second day today when he sued The Sun. for defamation after he was referred to as a "thug" in a three-week trial involving prominent witnesses such as Vanessa Paradis and Paul Bettany.
A photo shows a glass table strewn with piles of alcohol and drugs, on which four lines of cocaine are cut in addition to his driver's license and a tube.
A crossbones skull pill box labeled "Property of JD" on the top, which Depp said was "likely" to contain drugs at the time the photo was taken, is on one side.
There are also two glasses of whiskey – half drunk, the other pint-sized – a pack of tobacco next to a rolled-up brown cigarette and a Keith Richards CD on hand.
The High Court was shown pictures of Johnny Depps' lifestyle filled with drinks and drugs, including a picture of Amber Heard showing half a liter of whiskey, four lines of cocaine, and his skull pill box, ready to be consumed at 1:37 p.m.
The court was also shown a picture of Depp passing out next to his bed when the 57-year-old Hollywood legend was peppered with questions by lawyers who worked for The Sun about his extensive alcohol and drug use
Another picture shows Depp, who passed out on the floor next to his bed.
The pictures were taken in 2013, the day Depp was supposed to make a documentary about Keith Richards – just before he and Heard rowed about his drug and alcohol use.
Depp was interrogated today by The Sun's lawyer, who asked Depp if he was wearing cocaine in the "pill box." The actor replied, "I would say I was probably."
Barrister Sasha Wass QC, who represented The Sun, said the photo shows four lines from Cocaine next to a credit card with a straw over the credit card ".
Ms. Wass said when Heard's sister Whitney Henriquez arrived at the house, "she was confronted with the sight of Heard, who had obviously been crying."
She then suggested that Heard and Ms. Henriquez stay with you for about four hours to convince them to go to the film set for Keith Richards' documentary.
Depp said, "It was a day when Keith Richards and Tom Waits performed together in the studio."
But he added, "For me it was more important to try to fix things, fix things with Ms. Heard."
The court also heard the actor's curse about the Caribbean telling the screenwriter Stephen Deuters that he thought his "Peruvian time" had angered his former spouse.
He reportedly wrote to Mr. Deuters: "Amber is extremely upset and we are dying … Do you want to talk to her while we are there and give her a perspective on me and what I am and what is not? She believes that my Peruvian time made me a monster and that I am ruining the relationship. & # 39;
"So the Peruvian period is an indication of cocaine?" Ms. Wass asked what Depp replied: "Yes."
Ms. Wass also suggested that when he arrived, Depp's assistant Nathan Holmes "refused to leave" and "you are sniffing more and more cocaine".
Depp said he "definitely participated in cocaine" and claimed "Whitney also participated in cocaine".
He also claimed that Heard would "normally" cut cocaine into lines for him. This was refuted by Ms. Wass, who said it never happened because Heard "extremely disapproved" of cocaine.
The actor said in court, "Well, she poured me the whiskey and cocaine was visible in front of her, and I have seen many times with Ms. Heard that she would actually chop the cocaine for me so I could do the line and then press she put her finger in and took it orally.
"I do not suggest that she did this in this case (on a special occasion that Ms Wass gave him), but I suggest that it was a normal duty that she felt obliged to do."
Depp & # 39; made a 24-hour cocaine bender with Marilyn Manson in 2014 & # 39;
The court also heard that Depp allegedly made a 24-hour cocaine bender with Marilyn Manson while Heard sent worried messages about his whereabouts to his sister.
She wrote Christi Dembrowski in February 2014: "JD is on a bend with Manson" when he stormed after another collapse.
Hollywood legend said today that he took cocaine "three times" with Manson, but denied that his visit in 2014 involved drugs.
Instead, he said that he and the famous rocker had brought his daughter Lily-Rose to school and that it was a "mystery" how Ms. Heard thought he was using substances.
The pirates of the Caribbean star claimed that his former spouse was "jealous" and suspected that he had cheated on her when he disappeared after a row.
Ms. Wass said the marriage was characterized by a dysfunctional "pattern" in which Depp would bend and leave Ms. Heard after drug-related disputes.
The lawyer said, "And if this syndrome occurred, that is, arguments about drug use followed by a seizure, when the whole thing was over, when the whole explosion was over, you would just go away and get away from it. & # 39;
Depp replied, “There was a time when I said I would be staying in a hotel room.
"And she was extremely worried because she didn't know where you were and was in a state of intoxication or drug use, and she became quite hectic with concern," said the lawyer.
"She would indeed become quite hectic with worry and she would indeed become jealous that I cheated on her," came the answer.
"You just went back to 2014 and said you used drugs with Marilyn Manson twice, but years before you were with Ms. Heard," said Ms. Wass.
"Maybe twice or three times," Depp said. "With Manson, I thought there was a lot of cocaine to drink before Ms. Heard and I were fully involved, let's say."
The court heard Depp attack Amber Heard in a private plane while accusing her of having sex with James Franco on the set of the adderall diaries in 2014
Actor Johnny Depp leaves London's High Court after a hearing in his blockbuster libel case against The Sun.
Depp said, “She speculates that I've been with Manson for more than 24 hours.
"Manson and I actually took my daughter to school."
However, Ms. Wass read from a text that Ms. Heard allegedly sent to Depp's sister Christi Dembrowski in February 2014, saying, “JD is on a bend with Manson. Once again, he believes it's about me and us.
"Again, I don't know what to do. He'll hurt himself and take us as a couple.
“I think he's with Marilyn and is now continuing the rage and alcohol frenzy. Can you help? * We have no reason to fight. He only directs all his anger on me when he is on it. I do not know what to do. & # 39;
"Do you think you were in a crisis (with Manson)?" asked the quality control.
"I would say Ms. Heard believed that. It's a mystery to me how she had precise information about what I did with Manson, ”said Depp.
Heard's alleged lyrics continued: “He dropped Lily-Rose this morning and hasn't been back since. I called the guards to make sure at least one of them was there, and Sean did.
“I'm not sure who dropped them off, but I think it was JD and Manson for sure.
When asked whether his sister had expressed concern about his drug use at that time, Depp replied, "My sister Christ has had many, many years since my youth that my use has grown, and yes, she has spoken to me many times throughout my life. We talked about it.
"She and Ms. Heard's ability to speak to each other didn't stop long afterwards."
Heard's sister Whitney is said to have contacted him later and asked him to make amends with her sibling.
Depp reportedly replied: "I'm fine, I just can't handle it anymore, she crossed the border again. Always too much.
“A person has to think before they become squirrel-like. So damn sad. I have never done anything other than love her. & # 39;
But even his own daughter Lily-Rose asked him not to give up his relationship with Heard because she had a "good influence" on his parents, the court heard.
The teenager at the time allegedly praised the "positive effect" of marriage on drinking and said he was "a better father since she was there."
"Your daughter realized that I heard that she had a good influence on you?" Ms. Wass asked.
"Yes, she believed that back then," came the answer.
& # 39; your daughter says to you: & # 39; You have been a better father for Jack and me since she was there and she helps with the alcohol.
& # 39; & # 39; I only see the positive effect it had on you. Please do not write them off now. It could surprise you. & # 39; & # 39;
They say to her: I'm not going back to drink alcohol. We'll see what happens to her. & # 39; & # 39;
Depp joked with Paul Bettany about lighting Amber Heard and fucking her burned body to make sure she's dead, or drowning to make sure she's not a witch
The court heard that Depp exchanged & # 39; joke texts & # 39; with British actor Paul Bettany to set Amber Heard on fire and then fuck her burned body to make sure she's dead & # 39; or his & # 39; Witches & # 39; Ex wife drown.
The 57-year-old actor was asked by The Sun lawyer about the series of text messages with Bettany and whether he thought she was a "respectful" way of talking about his girlfriend.
He admitted it wasn't that he was peppered with questions about his extensive alcohol and cocaine abuse in court and alleged complaints about Heard trying to keep him from drinking and using cocaine.
"She didn't like me drinking alcohol and drugs because she had a delusional idea that they made me … that monster," he said to Ms. Wass, The Sun's attorney.
Depp said his "sense of humor was slightly distorted" when texts emerged in which he joked with actor Bettany about "shaving Amber Heards Beaver" – a reference to a pet beaver that they are considering buying.
Johnny Depp exchanged joke texts with British actor Paul Bettany (pictured) about setting fire to Amber Heard and then fucking her burned body to make sure she was dead, or his ex-witch, the court, drowned today heard
In an explosive series of messages, the couple seem to be joking about setting Heard on fire before Depp said, "I'll fuck her burned body afterwards to make sure she's dead."
The court heard Depp ask Bettany to buy Heard a beaver and record himself shaving the animal so that they could release the clip entitled "Johnny Depp shaves Amber Heards Beaver online".
Ms. Wass read the shocking news exchanged between Depp and Bettany and said, “(Depp says) First we buy Amber a pet beaver and then we take pictures of you shaving the pet beaver.
"All of this is to create a domain name" Johnny Depp shaves Amber Heards Beaver ".
“Of course there are many spin-offs. You could nudge, joke, hit.
"Do you think that's a respectful kind of someone, Paul Bettany here, talking about your girlfriend?" The lawyer asked what Depp replied, "It's not a respectful way to talk about Ms. Heard."
Later in June, Depp reportedly received a text that said, “I'm not sure we should burn Amber. It is a delightful company and pleasing to the eye. We could of course do the English procedure and do a drowning test. Thoughts? You have a swimming pool. & # 39;
He is said to have answered and said: & # 39; Let's drown them before we burn them !!! I'll fuck her burned body afterwards to make sure she's dead. & # 39;
Ms. Wass said, Bettany replied: “All of my thoughts. Let's be sure before we pronounce her as a witch. & # 39;
The actor described his ex-wife as a "witch" just because he tried to recover from his addiction, the lawyer said. But he claimed she reacted "aggressively" to his alleged drug abuse and rejected her claims that he had become violent while intoxicated as a "delusion."
Quality control added, "This reference to being a witch was an indication that she was trying to stop you from using drinks and drugs, and you were annoyed that she did, and ( she) was the moral police, something like that. "
Depp replied: & # 39; (Bettany) knew about our arguments and struggles. He knew details.
I was annoyed by the fact that Ms. Heard was very aggressive and quite insulting to my alcohol consumption, or when cocaine came into play, she didn't like Mr. Bettany and I'm afraid she didn't really like me and she was constantly working on things that didn't exist. & # 39;
"She didn't like you when you used drugs and alcohol all the time, did she?" Ms. Wass said.
"She didn't like me drinking alcohol and drugs because she had a delusional idea that they made me … that monster," came the answer.
In a draft email written by Heard and sent to Depp but never sent, she allegedly complained about the failed relationship and said, “I just don't think I can do that anymore. I love half of you crazy. The other half scares me.
"The problem is that I never really know which one I'm dealing with until it's too late. Das Trinken versichert mir, dass ich es mit dem missbrauchten, verängstigten, unsicheren, gewalttätigen kleinen Jungen zu tun habe …
„Ich kann einfach nicht sagen, wo die Linie beginnt. Auch Drogen scheinen zu garantieren, dass ich mich wieder mit dem Monster befassen muss. Manchmal ist der Kater am nächsten Morgen genauso schlimm wie das Blutbad in der Disco, das ich erwartet habe. & # 39;
Der texanische Schauspieler sagte angeblich in der nicht gesendeten Nachricht, dass Depps Freunde "verlegen" seien, "einen erwachsenen Mann von seinem eigenen P *** abzuholen und sich zu übergeben".
Depp 'hielt Heards winzigen Yorkshire-Terrier in einem Anfall von Wut aus dem Autofenster'
Der Anwalt von Sun, Sasha Wass QC, verwies auf Textnachrichten zwischen Depp und seinem Freund Paul Bettany über "die Tatsache, dass Frau Heard versucht hat, Sie vom Drogenkonsum abzubringen".
Depp sagte: "Sie war ziemlich fest davon überzeugt, dass ich nicht mehr trinke, und sie war ziemlich fest davon überzeugt, dass ich den Konsum von Kokain und Freizeitdrogen einstellen sollte."
Frau Wass fragte: "Wie passt diese letzte Aussage zu Ihrem Vorschlag, dass sie Ihre Nüchternheit nicht unterstützt?"
Depp antwortete, wenn jemand "einem Alkoholiker oder jemandem, von dem angenommen wird, dass er drogenabhängig ist … helfen würde, würde er selbst aufhören, vor dieser Person zu trinken, und aufhören, Drogen um diese Person herum zu nehmen".
Er fügte hinzu: "Ich würde sagen, das ist volle Unterstützung."
Frau Wass sagte, Frau Heard würde zwei oder drei Gläser Wein trinken, was Depp dazu veranlasste, zu sagen: "Zwei oder drei Flaschen."
Der Anwalt antwortete "das ist völliger Unsinn" und bezog sich auf einen Vorfall, bei dem Depp mit Heard, ihrer Schwester Whitney, ihrem Yorkshire-Terrier, Pistol, einem Fahrer und dem Assistenten des Schauspielers Nathan Holmes in einem Auto unterwegs war.
Sie sagte: "Als du im Auto warst, hast du geraucht und das Fenster geöffnet und du warst wütend und du warst aggressiv, ähnlich wie du in dem Clip warst, den wir gestern gesehen haben – die Monsterseite deines Charakters."
Depp antwortete: "Nein, Ma'am, ich war überhaupt nicht in diesem Modus."
Frau Wass sagte: "Und Sie haben Pistol ergriffen und sie aus dem Fenster gehalten und angefangen, heulende Geräusche zu machen." Der Schauspieler antwortete: "Ich kann sagen, es ist ein sehr liebenswertes Bild, aber es ist absolut falsch, es ist betrügerisch."
Der Anwalt schlug dann vor, dass Depp dies für lustig hielt, worauf er antwortete: "Nein, gnädige Frau, ich glaube nicht, dass es Spaß macht, ein Tier aufzuhängen, einen kleinen wehrlosen Hund, der drei Pfund aus einem Fenster wiegt."
Frau Wass fragte dann, ob Depp über einen Vorschlag gelacht habe, den Hund in eine Mikrowelle zu stellen, worauf er antwortete, dass dies ein „Laufwitz“ zwischen ihm, Heard und anderen sei.
Die Hollywood-Legende fügte hinzu: "Ich würde nicht sagen, dass ich der Erfinder dieses speziellen Witzes war, und ich war auch nicht der einzige, der so etwas aufbrachte."
Frau Wass fragte Depp auch nach einem Vorfall, bei dem der Hund "etwas Haschisch, etwas Cannabis – ziemlich viel gegessen" habe.
Der Anwalt schlug vor, es handele sich um eine Unze Haschisch, aber Depp sagte: "Ich würde nicht sagen, dass es eine Unze war." Er fügte hinzu: "Der Welpe hat einen kleinen Haschischball in die Hand genommen und ihn einfach aufgeschöpft, bevor ich ihn erreichen konnte."

Depp 'wurde wütend, nachdem eine Frau Heard während der MDMA-Reise gestreichelt hatte'
Depp wurde wütend und verwüstete seinen Wohnwagen mit Heard im Inneren, nachdem eine Frau sie sexuell berührt hatte, hörte das Gericht.
Der Schauspieler bedrohte eine Frau namens Kelly-Sue, nachdem er vermutete, dass sie 2013 auf einer Party in Hicksville sexuelle Fortschritte gegenüber Heard machte.
Er sagte, er habe ihren Arm genommen und sie gebeten aufzuhören, bevor er ihr sagte: "Nehmen Sie kein MDMA, wenn Sie damit nicht umgehen können", bestritt jedoch, körperlich aggressiv zu sein.
Frau Wass sagte: "Sie sagten schließlich zu ihr:" Wissen Sie, wie viel Druck nötig wäre, um sich das Handgelenk zu brechen? "
"No," came the answer. »Es war Nacht – Als sich die Mädchen versammelten, begann Kelly-Sue, Frau Heard auf eine Weise zu berühren, die über das hinausging, was man als normale Zuneigung akzeptieren würde.
'Sie waren ziemlich sexuell und sie waren ziemlich aggressiv und sie war eindeutig sehr hoch. Ich erinnere mich, dass (Heard) sie nur lächelnd ansah. Ich dachte, es sei eine unangenehme Situation.
Ich nahm Kelly-Sues Hand von Frau Heards Körper und sagte ihr, sie solle das nicht tun. Erstens ist das mein Mädchen, zweitens ist es unhöflich und invasiv. She was quite glassy-eyed and she seemed pretty unsure of her surroundings… She seemed very stable on her feet.
'I remember saying to her if you're going to take this drug MDMA you should know if you're able to handle it or not. Don't take it if you can't handle it.'
Heard allegedly blasted Depp over the altercation when they arrived back at his trailer and made him feel like a 'bummer,' he said today.
Giving evidence, Depp said: 'The argument did start because of this incident with Kelly-Sue because when we arrived back to our trailer.
'Ms Heard began to yell and scream at me that I had ruined everyone's weekend and that once again I was the bummer and I had ruined everyone's good time. So I was demeaned for being concerned.
'I did get very, I was very upset at being treated yet again as the, pardon the expression, turd in the punch bowl.
'That was undeserved. I didn't feel I deserved to be screamed at and treated like garbage for doing something I felt was right and correct so during the height of the argument I punched the glass art deco light above the bathroom mirror.'
The court heard the wrecked trailer had been booked by a wedding party the following day and staff told Depp he 'couldn't just pay.'
Ms Wass said: 'Do you remember a wedding party was due to arrive in a couple of hours and the owners were saying you can't just pay for it, we have people coming in two hours?'
'They never said that to me but I spoke to the manager and brought him to the trailer and he saw the damage. He said okay. He replaced it, I apologized and he said 'no problem,'' came the reply.
Ms Wass said that when Depp and Heard returned to their trailer that night they had 'a big argument', which Mr Depp said was correct.
The barrister said the row was prompted by two things: 'The fact that you had consumed a lot of alcohol and drugs that night… and secondly that you were jealous'.
Depp said: 'When we arrived back at the trailer, Ms Heard began to yell and scream at me that I had ruined everyone's weekend and that, you know, once again I was the bummer and that I ruined everyone's good time, so I was demeaned for being concerned.'
Ms Wass suggested that the owners of the trailer park were 'very upset' the following morning because a wedding party was due to arrive in a few hours.
But Mr Depp said: 'I spoke to the manager, brought him to the trailer, showed him the damage and then he went to his office and returned with a replacement bulb.'
Ms Wass referred to Depp referring to Heard as a 'lesbian camp counsellor', which the actor said he had not said. But the barrister took Depp to text messages between him and Heard in which he used the phrase.
The actor replied: 'Yes, I used those words … in a text. I used that in a text, but the words were never uttered.'
Ms Wass asked if he agreed that it was a 'highly offensive reference to her'.
Mr Depp replied: 'Yes, it is.' He added: 'That was a very ugly thing to do.'
Depp 'slapped Heard while trying to torch painting by her "lesbian lover"'
Depp was also accused of slapping Heard while trying to torch a painting by her ex-partner Tasya van Ree.
Heard claims that the 57-year-old actor hit her several times after an argument about the artwork, which was hanging in her bedroom, and tried to set it on fire.
The fight is said by The Sun to be the first instance of domestic abuse inflicted by Depp during their relationship.
Ms Wass asked if he remembered arriving at Heard's home in Los Angeles 'drunk and having consumed a cocktail of cocaine and cannabis'. Depp replied: 'Not off hand, no.'
Barrister Sasha Wass QC asked Depp about a tattoo he had done on his arm during his relationship with actress Winona Ryder, which read 'Winona Forever' and which he had changed to 'Wino Forever' after they split
The barrister asked: 'Would you describe yourself as jealous?', to which Depp replied: 'I am, yes. I can be jealous.'
She said: 'You were very jealous and accusatory of Ms Heard, suggesting that she was having, or continuing, her affair with Tasya van Ree – it became an obsession of yours that night.'
Depp said: 'I remember we had several arguments about Ms van Ree, I won't elaborate, I will let you…'
The Sun's lawyer then read out part of Depp's witness statement in which he said he had asked Heard to remove the painting 'as a courtesy' to him.
Ms Wass asked: 'When you asked her to remove the painting, according to your recollection, what did she say?'
'Ultimately, no', the actor replied. He then denied allegations put to him by Ms Wass that he tried to remove the painting and to set fire to it, saying each time they were 'not true'.
Depp 'attacked Heard after she laughed at his infamous "Wino Forever" tattoo'
The 57-year-old actor was cross examined on the stand by Ms Wass who alleged that he slapped Heard in 2013 after she laughed at the tattoo during a period where he was drinking heavily.
Depp originally got the tattoo reading 'Winona Forever' in tribute to his then girlfriend Winona Ryder, and changed it after they broke up in 1993.
Today, Depp was asked by Ms Wass QC if he had taken cocaine at the time of the alleged slapping in March 2013. Depp said it was 'difficult to recollect' but it was 'possible'.
Ms Wass put it to Depp that the actor first hit Heard in early 2013 – one of 14 separate allegations of domestic violence, all denied by Depp, relied on by The Sun in their defence.
The barrister asked Depp about a tattoo he had done on his arm during his relationship with actress Winona Ryder, which read 'Winona Forever' and which he had changed to 'Wino Forever' after they split.
Ms Wass asked if he thought it was a joke at the time, to which he replied: 'Yes, it seemed fitting.'
She then probed the actor further about the alleged incident in March 2013, which Depp agreed was at a time when he had 'fallen off the wagon' following about 160 days of sobriety.
Depp, who is suing The Sun after it labelled him a 'wife beater', originally got the tattoo reading 'Winona Forever' in tribute to his then girlfriend Winona Ryder (pictured together), and changed it after they broke up in 1993
The barrister put it to Depp that he had slapped Heard three times after she laughed at the 'Wino Forever' tattoo during a period where he was drinking heavily.
Ms Wass said: 'You have had a tattoo on one of your arms when you were having a relationship with Winona Ryder and after you separated from Winona Ryder and after you separated from Ms Ryder you took the last syllable of her name and it read 'Wino Forever'. That presumably was a joke at the time.'
She asked: 'You don't really like to have your nose rubbed in it that you've failed do you?'
Depp said: 'I suppose the image of having my nose rubbed in something is I would say not a very nice way of dealing with someone who, especially if you think someone has a drink problem, rubbing their nose in it is in my opinion the wrong way to go. That's what people have done to dogs for years.'
Ms Wass continued: 'It was when Ms Heard laughed at the tattoo that read Wino Forever because at that stage you were in fact acting like a Wino, like an alcoholic, and you were acting very sensitive about it. Do you agree?'
'I would say I was initially very disappointed in myself that after 160 days having broken my sobriety,' Depp replied.
She said: 'Do you accept that Ms Heard was making a joke out of your tattoo, 'Wino Forever'?'
Depp replied: 'I don't recall any conversation.'
Ms Wass continued: 'I suggest that that provoked disappointment, firstly, in you, and then anger in you, but you don't remember.' Depp replied: 'I don't recall any argument about any of my tattoos.'
Ms Wass said: 'You then, Mr Depp, slapped Ms Heard across the face.'
The actor responded: 'That is not correct, it's untrue. It didn't happen.'
Ms Wass said: 'You slapped her more than once, because after you slapped her the first time, she didn't react, she just eyeballed you, she just stared at you, and that made you more angry and you slapped her again.'
Depp answered: 'That is patently untrue.'
Ms Wass then put it to the actor that he slapped his former wife three times in total during the incident, to which he replied: 'I'm sorry but that is not true, you are mistaken.'
The barrister said Depp told Heard 'for the first time about the person you have been calling 'the monster', your alter ego, the person who took over when you were under the influence of drink and drugs'.
Depp replied: 'No, ma'am.'
Ms Wass also told the court that Heard had told Depp 'that she knew all about addiction because her father and, indeed, also her mother had also been drug users'.
Depp said that was true and that he became 'very close' with Heard's father and mother. But the actor denied that Heard had said 'she could help him' with his drug use.
The actor was read extracts from an exchange of text messages between him and Heard on March 12, 2013, in which he wrote: 'Just thought you should know, there exists a book entitled Disco Bloodbath. That is all.'
The court heard Heard replied: 'We need that book… is it about last Friday night by any chance?' Depp then said: 'How can you make me smile about such a hideous moment?'
The message ended: 'I f****** love you, you c***.'
In a written statement about the incident, Depp said: 'I understand from my solicitors that the defendants also allege that on 8 March 2013, Ms Heard and I were in her home in Los Angeles.
'They state that I was getting drunk and high on drugs and was angry that Ms Heard had hung up a painting given to her by someone she had formerly dated.
'Allegedly my team and Ms Heard asked her sister to come over to try to intervene with me, which she did.
'After Ms Heard's sister left, they state that I hit Ms Heard so hard that blood from her lip ended on the wall.
'They state that I subsequently sent Ms Heard a text message referring to that evening as a 'disco bloodbath' and a 'hideous moment' and that the morning after this incident I tried to set fire to the painting.
'I cannot remember if I was with Ms Heard at her home on March 8, 2013.
'I know that at some point around this time I did ask Ms Heard to remove a painting that she had received from her former wife from the bedroom, as a courtesy to me.
'I do not recall the exact date I asked Ms Heard to do this. I do not remember Ms Heard's sister being asked to come over either by Ms Heard or by any member of my team when this happened.
'I certainly did not hit Ms Heard at all, then or ever, and her accusation that I hit her so hard that blood from her lip ended up on the wall is precisely the kind of picturesque but absurd lie she often tells.
'Insofar as I exchanged texts with Ms Heard on March 12th, 2013 (and I do not remember whether I did or not), my intention in apologising would have been, as always, to placate Ms Heard.
'The words 'disco blood bath' and a 'hideous moment' would not have referred to any physical abuse. I also did not try to set fire to the painting in question at any point in time.'
Heard wrote Depp an unsent email where she compared living with him to living with 'Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde'
Ms Wass also read aloud an email written by Heard to Depp, which was never sent to him, in which she said the actor lived 'in a world full of enablers'.
The email began: 'I just don't know if I can do this anymore. It is like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Half of you I love madly, and the other half scares me. I can't take him. I wish I could, but I can't. The problem is, I never really know/understand which one I'm dealing with until it's too late.
'The drinking assures me that I am dealing with the monster. The abused, scared, insecure, violent little boy. I just can't tell where the line starts.'
The barrister said: 'Your answer to Ms Heard's allegation that you were a serial domestic abuser was that this is a hoax.'
Depp replied: 'Hoax is probably the best word one could use because the allegations, all of the allegations, are patently untrue.'
He added: 'From hearing you read out this (email), that was not sent to me, and from some of the information I have garnered from my experience yesterday and having studied the case, I will suggest, ma'am, that it appears to me that Ms Heard was building a dossier very early on that appears to be an insurance policy for later.'
