Johnny Depp has been all over the news headlines over the last few weeks after his court hearing in the United Kingdom began. Depp is currently suing the British newspaper, The Sun, and its owners, for writing a story about him in 2018 that referred to the Pirates of the Caribbean actor as a “wife-beater.”
Page Six reported on part of the trial today in which it was alleged that Depp had once written “I love you” on a mirror with the blood from his finger. The actor purportedly severed his finger during a fight with the Never Back Down actress, Amber Heard.
In a statement read out loud to the court, Heard argued that she was terrified for her safety over an incident in which Depp allegedly shoved her up against a ping-pong table and choked her against a fridge.
The Daily Mail reported on the lawyer’s statement in which it was alleged that Heard was left with multiple injuries, including cuts on her body, a swollen nose, as well as a broken lip.
The Sun’s attorney, Sasha Wass, has repeatedly claimed in her arguments that Depp had been drunk and high on drugs during multiple altercations. Sasha accused Depp of taking 10 ecstasy tablets in under two hours.

Two months before the world was subjected to the shocking live coverage of the merciless, bloodthirsty and public daylight murder of JFK in Nov. 1963, Bob Dylan sat down to write a song… He had a particular idea in mind, which he recorded mere weeks before Kennedy’s tragic Assassination. Dylan had already achieved stratospheric acclaim from his treasure-producing workmanship and poetic abilities. He had already jacked up the bar of songwriting to an untouchable level. He also became a reluctant prophet, which can be quite an occupational hazard…Yet he remained himself while dodging all manner of con artists, bloodsuckers, angles, arrows, ignorance, injustices, and scrutinization of his life. His intentions remained pure. So he sat down and wrote the gold standard of protest songs, the seminal and most significant, mind boggling and staggeringly poetic, prophetic protest song the world will ever know: “The Times They Are A-Changin’”. Dylan’s song applies to Covid-19, it also, very strongly applies to the life altering image of George Floyd, forever seared to our brains… For me, it applies to the moment we are in, it applies to the moment they were in in 1963, it applies to everything before and everything since and everything that will be. I chose to perform this song live, for my friend @drbarbarasturm Covid benefit several weeks ago… I didn’t really know how to play it, but I figured I’d give it a shot, as it seemed to apply so well. And it applies now, more than ever. It was performed a couple of weeks before our collective paralysis was rendered complete by the images of our fellow human George Floyd being cruelly and brutally tortured to death on live TV. Let us take a moment to remember the sacrificial hero George Floyd and look with hope towards the changes that his tragic death will cause. And let’s salute the reluctant prophet Bob Dylan and the dream of change he inspired then, now, and onwards… His impact is that of Shakespeare, Marlowe, Hunter Thompson, Marlon Brando, Woody Guthrie, William Blake, Picasso, Bach and Mozart. Dylan’s song is to be kept near you, AT ALL TIMES!!! All love and respect, JD
Earlier this week, Sasha also reiterated claims from Amber in which she accused Johnny of once hanging her teacup dog outside the car window as they drove down a busy street. Depp claimed the story was completely false, and he wouldn’t find dangling a dog outside of a window to be funny.
Currently, Depp is fighting against Heard in a court of law in the United States as well regarding her Washington Post op-ed. The op-ed, while it never directly named the Pirates of the Caribbean alum, referred to Amber as a “domestic abuse” survivor.
The op-ed was widely assumed to be about Johnny. According to Page Six, that case will be heard next year. Sources say it’s unclear how Johnny will win the case due to his name never being mentioned in the essay.
