Johnny Depp’s defamation trial is about to come to a conclusion. Both sides have taken the stand and spoken their testimony. They’ve presented witnesses and proof to make their testimony stronger. They’ve presented every piece of information that could’ve proved they’re right and the other person is wrong. Now, the world waits for what the jury is going to finally decide after listening to both sides. Johnny Depp was called back up on the stand for cross-examination. The actor was confronted with various among which was a text he sent talking about Elon Musk.
Johnny Depp was confronted about an old text on the Musk-Heard relationship
Recently, Johnny Depp was called on the stand again for testifying and cross-examination. An old text sent by the actor resurfaced. He sent it to his then-agent, Christian Carrino, talking about Elon Musk and Amber Heard’s relationship. In the text, it seemed that he wanted more information about the relationship. Also, the actor seemed pretty mad at his ex-wife.
The text he wrote was quite vulgar and explicit. He wrote, “Let’s see if mollusk has a pair. Come see me face to face…I’ll show him things he’s never seen before… Like, the other side of his d— when I slice it off.” He sent this text on August 15, 2016.
He also referred to Amber Heard as a “gold-digging, low level, dime a dozen, mushy, pointless, dangling overused flappy fish market.” Also, he added in the same text, “I can only hope karma kicks in and takes the gift of breath away from her.” When the text was presented to the jury, he admitted that the text was horrific.
His team called him to the stands to refute claims by some witnesses
Amber Head’s team wanted to call Depp for cross-examination again but they decided not. But his own team called him back up to question some of the claims by witnesses that came after his testimony was over. This was done to refute those claims and it doubled down on the previous testimony he gave at the beginning of the trial.
He said that the claims of abuse by Amber Heard are “outlandish, insane, ludicrous, savage, cruel,” and “all false.” He also said that the claims she made about him being abusive to Kate Moss, his ex, were false as well and in her head. Also, the Pirates of the Caribbean star said that he did support her in getting the role in Aquaman.
The trial comes to a conclusion on May 27.
