Amber Heard revealed in court Monday that Johnny Depp’s sister taught him how to snort cocaine with a tampon applicator. During cross-examination, I questioned Heard about a photo shown to jurors that showed four lines of cocaine next to a tampon applicator.
On Monday, May 16, the much-anticipated cross-examination of American actress Amber Heard in the ongoing defamation trial against her ex-husband and Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp began.
Amber testified that her sister (without naming Whitney Heard, her 34-year-old sibling) taught Johnny Depp how to snort cocaine with a tampon applicator.
“When you snort cocaine, it typically goes into your nose, and then it doesn’t stay on the table,” Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez asked the Heard. When your lips and hose touch the table, there’s residue from the cocaine, right?” “The tampon applicator next to the driver’s licence that you see is a device that I believe my sister taught him to use in order to put the cocaine in,” Heard explained.
This is just one example of the many disturbing allegations that have been brought to light in the civil case between the two formerly married actors.
Heard was also questioned about photos she took of Depp passing out on multiple occasions, which she later sent to a friend, referring to her ex as “opioid Johnny.”
One of the compromising photos shows Depp passed out with ice cream smeared on him, and she claims she was only trying to help him realise he was addicted.
Depp is suing Heard for $US50 million ($A67 million) for implying in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed that he abused her. Despite the fact that she did not name him, he claims her allegations are false and have cost him lucrative film roles.
Amber Heard has countersued, seeking $US100 million ($A134 million) and alleging “rampant physical violence and abuse” at his hands.
The case between the two actors, which is being heard at Fairfax County Court House in Virginia near Washington DC, resumed today after a week’s hiatus. It is scheduled to wrap up later this week.
