Day 5 of Johnny Depp’s trail has left the public in a state of shock. With new testimonies from his former personal assistant Stephen Deuters and a concierge from the LA building where the former couple lived, Trinity Esparza, one can only wonder what truly happened.
He has spent over 23 hours on the witness stand since the day the trial began. And now, on Day 5 of Johnny Depp’s libel trial, the actor has finally finished his testimonies and left the witness box.
“I’m gonna miss you.’’ He told a court worker with a smile as he took his leave. Over the course of the Day 5 of Depp’s Libel trail against ‘The Sun’, Depp was questioned over a picture presented to the court, where the ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ actor, was sleeping while ice cream melted and spilt all over his leg.
“I was obviously on the nod and very tired, falling asleep, and the ice cream then spilt all over my leg.’’ said the actor, referring a 17-hour working schedule every day.
The Hollywood legend then claimed that Amber Heard was abusive and “Haymakered” ( A type of roundhouse punch) him after her 30th birthday party in 2016. Depp said he was upset over a financial problem and had gone to bed.
“I had not only lost $650 million, but I was $100 million in the hole because they had not paid the government my taxes for 17 years,” He told the court. It was the same night in which Depp was accused of being violent towards Heard. However, in a secret recording by Heard without Depp’s knowledge, he could be heard accusing her of punching him.
Depp insisted that he did not hurt her as he had a cast around his hand for his severed finger due to complications and “painful disease” MRSA
After he left the witness box, Day 5 of Johnny Depp’s libel trial had another witness, Trinity Esparza defend him in the stand. Amber Heard alleged her former spouse had hit her in the arm with an iPhone causing a bruise, but the witness said otherwise.
She did not see any bruise on the actress following the alleged incident on 21st May 2016 and noticed a single bruise on May 27. She testified to seeing more bruises on her neck, arm and face in June/July and spotted Tesla Founder Elon Musk leaving the building. Heard allegedly had an affair with him
Second witness, Stephen Deuters, too backed Depp on Day 5 of the trial saying Heard “was the abuser in the relationship”. In a text, he referred to Heard as a “sociopathic show pony’’ and “Machiavellian overlord’’.
Heard is expected to take the stand later this week and Depp’s exes Winona Ryder and Vanessa Paradis are also expected to testify on Depp’s behalf during the course of this trial.
