Johnny Depp testifies Heard attacked him, he never hit back
FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — Actor Johnny Depp scoffed at the notion during court testimony that his constant quarrels with ex-wife Amber Heard would ever prompt him to hit her.
He also insisted on cross-examination that her allegations devastated his career.
Heard has accused Depp of physically and sexually assaulting her on multiple occasions before and during their brief marriage.
Depp on Wednesday said those accusations were false and that he has never hit a woman.
He sued Heard after she wrote a 2018 op-ed piece in The Washington Post in which she referred to herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.”
Heard is expected to testify later in the Virginia trial.
