Depp, 55, and Heard, 32, have been at war after their marriage ended in 2017. Heard once claimed that Depp cut off his own finger in 2016, dipped it in paint and smeared the words “Billy Bob Thornton” on the wall after finding out his ex-wife allegedly had an affair with Thornton.
Now, Depp has changed the narrative in explosive court docs where he dumps the blame on Heard.
“In one particularly gruesome episode that occurred only one month into their marriage, Ms. Heard shattered the bones in the tip of Mr. Depp’s right middle finger, almost completely cutting it off,” the papers claimed.
Depp claimed the injury was a result of Heard throwing a “glass vodka bottle at Mr. Depp – one of many projectiles that she launched at him in this and other instances,” the documents claimed.
“The bottle shattered as it came into contact with Mr. Depp’s hand, and the broken glass and impact severed and shattered Mr. Depp’s finger.”
As Radar readers know, Heard accused Depp of abuse as their marriage unraveled. However, in the new defamation lawsuit filed this month, he defined Heard’s claims as a “hoax.”
Depp had to get his finger surgically reattached, the documents confirmed. He then alleged that Heard “disseminated false accounts of this incident, casting Mr. Depp as the perpetrator of his own injury.”
Also in the documents, Depp accused Heard of cheating on him with Tesla founder Elon Musk.
A rep for Musk denied the romance, saying : “Elon and Amber didn’t start seeing each other until May 2016, and even then it was infrequent. They were not on the same continent for most of this time. Their relationship didn’t become romantic until much later.”
Depp is seeking $50 million in damages in the defamation suit. He has formerly claimed that Heard’s abuse claims against him have ruined is career and reputation.
