Johnny Depp’s ‘mean’ Amber Heard taunts aired in court

A former friend of Amber Heard told the court of the “incredibly mean and vicious” things he heard Johnny Depp say about her.

Amber Heard’s former friend iO Tillett Wright was the first witness the defence called after the actress left the stand during ex-husband Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against her.

In a prerecorded deposition, Wright testified that he met Heard in Los Angeles in late 2011 and they struck up a friendship. Wright said he later also became close with Depp – a relationship that ended in December 2015.

He also said he hadn’t spoken to Heard in over a year, suggesting the two were no longer on good terms.

“Johnny when sober was lovely and magical and very funny,” Wright said. “I felt a kindred connection with him and a shared perspective on the world that I’ve shared with very few people in my life.” He described Depp as extremely generous.

But added that Depp could also be “incredibly mean and vicious especially when drunk or high”.

Witness recalls Depp’s bender with Marilyn Manson

Wright said in the prerecorded deposition that he recalled a time when Amber Heard was out of town and Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson drank heavily and “partook in a lot of cocaine”.

He said actor Paul Bettany was also present.

“He really resented having to be sober. He didn’t want to be,” Wright said of Depp.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean star allegedly showed him a marijuana closet with “tens and tens of pounds of weed”.

Wright also said when Depp was high, he could be extremely cruel.

After Depp and Heard had a fight, Wright said he told him, “All she’s got is her looks and she has no talent and when her t*ts start to sag and her face gets wrinkly, nobody is going to be interested in her for anything so she better figure out another way to survive.”

Jealousy and Depp’s drug addiction were recurring themes in prior relationships – including with Winona Ryder, the actor allegedly told Wright.

Wright also corroborated several of Amber Heard’s allegations of physical and emotional abuse at Depp’s hands.

He said he visited Heard’s apartment after Depp allegedly hit her on December 15, 2015, during a fight over the star’s alleged infidelity.

Wright said he observed the injuries Heard had allegedly sustained – including a bruise on her scalp and temple and a split lip.

Months earlier, Wright attended their wedding celebration in February 2015 and Depp allegedly made a disturbing remark, he said.

“He said, ‘We’re married now. I can punch her in the face and no one can do anything about it,’” Wright told the court.

Explosive fight over origin of faeces in marital bed

Wright received a phone call from Amber Heard on May 21, 2016, asking him to clear up the infamous defecation incident.

Johnny Depp had gone to the penthouse to pick up some items about a month after he found what he described as human excrement in their marital bed after a massive fight.

“She said, ‘Johnny thinks that you and I together defecated on his pillow,’” Wright told the court. “I think the words used were ‘sh*t on his pillow’ so I started laughing.” He and Heard laughed, which Wright said enraged Depp.

Wright tried to explain that he hadn’t been at the apartment on the morning in question, then he heard a loud noise. Wright mimicked the sound by smacking his closed fist into his hand.

“The phone dropped and he said to her, ‘You think I hit you? You think I f***ing hit you? what if I peel your f***ing hair back?” Wright testified in the deposition. “I remember her screaming and I hung up the phone,” he said, as his eyes swelled with tears.

He called her best friend, Raquel Pennington, who lived next door then called the police. Heard testified to the court that Depp smashed her cellphone into her face.
