Johnny Depp Ended Marriage To Amber Heard After Allegedly Finding Faeces In His Bed
Hollywood actor Johnny Depp has claimed he decided to end his marriage to Amber Heard after he found what he claims to be human faeces in their bed after her birthday party. Heard insisted the poo had been left by one of their dogs.
The actor, 57, is suing News Group Newspapers over a story published in The Sun in 2018 which branded him a “wife-beater”, an allegation which he vehemently denies according to a report by The Mirror.
The libel trial kicked off at London’s High Court today with both Depp and Heard, 32, in attendance and the subject of the 2016 poo incident was brought up in court documents.
In opening arguments, Depp’s legal team told the court:
Depp who in the end was forced to finally call time on this relationship, largely after behaviour by her and her friends following her birthday party in their flat in April 2016. Including he says, one of them defecating on his bed, something which Heard blames on their tiny dog.
Depp witness statement was presented to the court, in which he addressed the incident in his own words, claiming Heard told their building manager the poo incident was a “harmless prank”. He said:
I understand that the following morning [after the party] Heard (or possibly one of her friends) defecated in our shared bed. On 12 May 2016, Heard confessed to our estate manager, Kevin Murphy, that leaving the faeces in the bed had been just a harmless prank thereby effectively acknowledging that she had been responsible, whereas she had previously sought to blame our dogs. They were both too tiny to jump onto the bed nor able to leave faeces like that which was deposited on the bed. I resolved to divorce Heard on that day.
However, In documents presented to the court, Heard claimed Depp arrived at the end of the party “drunk and high on drugs” and attacked her after her guests left. Allegations that Depp has denied.
