FALLS CHURCH, VA (AP) — Johnny Depp called his ex-wife’s accusations of sexual and physical abuse “insane” as he returned to the witness stand in his libel suit against Amber Heard.

Depp was back on the stand Wednesday as a rebuttal witness in the six-week trial. Both he and Heard had already each testified for four days earlier in the trial.

Depp described Heard’s testimony – in which she detailed more than a dozen separate issues of abuse – as ridiculous and false.

Depp is suing Heard for libel in Fairfax County Circuit Court over a December 2018 op-ed she wrote in The Washington Post describing herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”
