Johnny Depp Testifies That Ex-Wife Amber Heard Punched Him After Learning He Lost $750 Million

Johnny Depp wears a black and white bandana while arriving back at the Royal Courts of Justice on Monday (July 13) in London, England.

The 57-year-old actor’s libel case against News Group Newspapers, publishers of The Sun, is still going on. The paper accused Johnny of being a “wife beater” in a 2018 article.

Today, according to The Guardian, Johnny opened up about how Amber Heard got violent towards him after finding out he was hundreds of millions of dollars in debt.

Johnny told the court on Monday that Heard once attacked him the same night the actor discovered he had serious financial woes. The alleged incident occurred in April 2016, when he said he was informed that he owed millions of dollars in unpaid taxes.

“I was in the early stages of learning from my recently acquired new business manager that the former business managers had taken quite a lot of my money. They stole my money,” he shared with the court.

Johnny continued, “It was put to me this way, because I had no idea about money or amounts of money: Since Pirates [of the Caribbean] 2> and 3, I had – and this is ludicrous to have to state, it’s quite embarrassing – apparently I had made $650 million, and when I sacked [the former business managers], for the right reasons, 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 adds that he made this discovery on the same night as Amber‘s 30th birthday party, to which he was late, and claimed she punched him.

“It’s just a type of wild swinging … kind of a roundhouse punch, as it were,” he said. “It’s a bit of a wild swing, but effective if it reaches the target.”

Previously, Amber said that he was the one who was violent with her – pulling her hair and throwing objects at her.

If you missed it, two of Johnny‘s exes will be testifying on his behalf during the case.
