The Sun's Lawyer Accuses Johnny Depp Of Attacking Amber Heard For Withholding His Medication During Caribbean Island Detox
As part of Johnny Depp's new court battle with the owners of the British newspaper, The Sun, arguments were read in a trial in which more claims against Depp were revealed.
Page Six says that Johnny has been accused of violently attacking Heard during his detox on a Caribbean island because she withheld his medication. Reportedly, Depp visited his private Caribbean island in the Bahamas in August 2014, with Heard acting as his private nurse.
The Daily Mail was the first to report that Heard went along on the trip to act as a personal assistant to Depp as he continued to fight off drug addiction and substance abuse. Heard reportedly texted one of his doctors that he was "flipping again."
The Sun's lawyer, Sasha Wass, says Depp slapped Amber and kicked her to the ground as he fought the comedown from Roxicodone. She wrote in her messages that he had just started "screaming" and he got so mad that he pushed her.
Depp defended himself by arguing that he never attacked Amber in any way. Due to his weakened state as a consequence of the detox, he was not in the condition to do so, the actor claimed. Reportedly, Amber will appear at the Royal Courts of Justice on the 9th of July.
In his defense, Depp claimed Amber's withholding of his medication was one of the worst things she had ever done to him. The actor described it was one of the worst moments in his life when he cried on the floor due to not receiving his medication.
Even though he had accused her of cruelty, Depp reportedly texted Amber's mother, thanking her daughter for taking care of him as a "poor old junkie."
In a separate incident, Depp was questioned about his behavior including violent outbursts in which he would punch a wall or break something in the home. Depp said to the court that he would rather take out his anger on an inanimate object than the person he loved.
Earlier this week, the actor was also accused of abusing Amber's dog.
