Heard, who is counter suing Depp, said, “It changed my life. We were sitting on the couch. We were having a normal conversation… there was no fighting, no argument, no nothing. He was drinking. I didn’t realise at the time, but I think he was using cocaine. I ask him about the tattoo he has on his arm. He said, ‘It says Wino’. I didn’t see that. I thought he was joking. I laughed. And he slapped me across the face. And I laughed. I thought, this must be a joke. I didn’t know what was going on. I just stared at him, kinda, laughing still, thinking he was gonna start laughing too. He said ‘You think it’s so funny b****? (sic)’”
The actor, 36, said Depp hit her again, and she fell. “It was clear it wasn’t a joke anymore. I stopped laughing. He slapped me for no reason. Second slap, I know he’s not kidding. I just stared at him. I didn’t move or freak out or defend myself. I just stared at him because I didn’t know what to do. And he slaps me one more time. Hard. I lose my balance.”
Heard said she knew straight away she “had to leave” her husband, but he cried and promised not to hit her again.
Heard is being sued for defamation by her ex-husband Depp over a 2018 op-ed she wrote about being a victim of domestic abuse and she took the stand at Fairfax County Circuit Court for the first time in the trial.
