During his testimony in the defamation lawsuit, Johnny Depp shared a set of bizarre rules he had to follow, as per his ex-wife, Amber Heard.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor launched a defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard in 2019. The lawsuit came after she wrote an op-ed piece for Washington Post where she called herself a domestic abuse victim.
The trial against the Aquaman star started on Monday, 11 April, in Fairfax, Virginia.
Depp Takes The Stand
On Tuesday and Wednesday, Depp talked about what was his relationship with Amber like. He mentioned rules Amber made him follow.
When he returned from work, Depp said that"she would sit me down on the couch and give me a glass of wine and…take my boots off."
"I've never experienced anything like that in my life. I never experienced that and it became a regular thing, kind of routine."
Now, the big twist came when Depp stated:
"One night I came home, and she was on the phone, I took my boots off, suddenly Miss Heard approached with this look on her face, she just said what did you just do? What did you do?"
Amber allegedly replied:
"You took your boots off."
Depp told her:
"Yes I did, he said he told her. You were busy."
And then the actress said:
"No, no, no, that's my job. You don't do that, I do that."
Depp then started to piece together a puzzle telling the jury:
"I did take pause, of course, the fact she was visibly shaken or upset that I had broken her rules of routine."
The actor continued explaining that "once you notice something like that, you start to notice other tidbits that come out."
"Then within a year a year and a half, she had become another person, almost."
Depp noticed other things Amber wanted to control, including going to bed at the same time as her.
The two met in 2011 while working on The Rum Diaries. They got married in February 2015, and after 18 months, Amber asked for a divorce.
The exes have been publically feuding for several years.
