She went on, “To me, it looked like black marks, I didn’t know what it said. I said what does it say. He said it says Wino and I thought he was joking and I laughed. He slapped me across the face and I laughed. I laughed because I didn’t know what else to do. I thought this must be a joke. Because I didn’t know what was going on.”

She also added that Depp then abused her and slapped her once again. And then the third time, really hard. That is when she realized it wasn’t a joke. She went on to describe how she felt after being slapped.
