Amber Heard denied ex-husband Johnny Depp’s feces-in-bed allegation, calling it “disgusting,” as she resumed her testimony in their defamation trial Monday.
The actress told the Fairfax County Circuit Courthouse that Depp accused her friend of leaving human feces in their bed after he and Heard got into a fight following her 30th birthday party in April 2016.
Heard said their dog, Boo, had bowel issues and was known to relieve himself in their house, and sometimes in their bed. She told the seven-person jury that she wasn’t in the mood to prank Depp after he left their Los Angeles apartment following the argument.
“I don’t think that’s funny,” Heard said. “I don’t know what grown woman does. I was not, also, in a pranking mood. My life was falling apart. ... I had just been attacked on my 30th birthday by my violent husband, with whom I was desperately in love and knew I needed to leave. It was not really a jovial time, and I don’t think that’s funny, period. That’s disgusting.”
Heard claimed she and Depp had a disagreement the night before after he showed up late to her birthday party. She said their altercation included multiple shoving matches, and claimed Depp threw a bottle of champagne at her that smashed through a painting, before he chest-bumped her to the floor.
“He grabbed me by the pubic bone, pubic area,” Heard claimed. “As best I can describe it is he kind of just pushed me down, held me down by it, and kind of pulled me into it. He was asking me, kind of taunting me, asking me if I thought I was so f--king tough. ‘You think you’re such a f--king tough guy, huh? ... Tough like a man now?’ That happened for a bit of time.”
Heard, 36, says she tried to call a truce and asked Depp not to leave her on her birthday.
“He responded cruelly,” Heard claimed. “He told me that’s what I f--king deserve, and that I’d wake up alone and that no one would ever love of me.”
Heard said her best friend came over the next morning so they could travel together to the Coachella music festival in Indio, California. She said she “didn’t notice anything” in the bed, but said she’d left Boo and their other dog, Pistol, on it while she packed.
“(Boo) had eaten Johnny’s weed when she was a puppy and had bowel control issues for her entire life, among some other issues,” Heard claimed. “We regularly had to take her to the vet.”
