He accuses the actress of fabricating abuse allegations that cost him his career. She has stuck by her story and is countersuing for $100 million.
Today, Depp continued day two on the stand. He spoke about Heard’s alleged manipulative and controlling behavior.
The two first met in 2011 on the set of The Rum Diary. They moved in together the following year. Depp said the relationship was amazing for the first year and a half but then things turned.
Throughout his testimony, Depp has admitted to struggles with drugs, specifically prescription pills. However, he said he didn't like to party and said he used to numb himself.
His lawyer asked him about Head’s drinking and drug use. Depp said his ex would always drink around him.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star claims Heard could “easily” drink two bottles of wine at night. He said she did not join him when he was sober for 18 months.
At one point, he said he tried to convince Heard to get sober with him but she refused. He told the jury she believed he was the one with the problem, not her.
The actor also said Heard liked to use MDMA and mushrooms — along with a prescription he described as speed-like.
Heard watched her ex-husband tear her to shreds from only feet away.
