JOHNNY Depp and Amber Heard invited their Las Vegas wedding guests for a “dance party and drugs”, the High Court heard today.
The Hollywood couple tied the knot in 2015 with explosive details of the relationship between Depp, 57, and Heard, 34, emerging this afternoon.
The Aquaman star has claims she was the victim of 14 domestic violence incidents during the couple’s relationship, with allegations that Depp threw a magnum of champagne at her and slapped her in a string of attacks.
Depp denies the allegations, with the case now before the High Court as the actor sues the Sun for a 2018 article that called him a “wife-beater”.
The court today heard details of the couple’s Las Vegas wedding in 2015.
It was told the wedding schedule read: “Seven pm, rehearsal dinner, after dance party and drugs and music.”
The High Court heard today:
- Poo was found in the couple’s marital bed by their cleaner – with Johnny Depp saying it was definitely “not left by a three or four pound dog
- The faeces had been found the morning after the couple allegedly rowed over Depp being late to Heard’s 30th birthday party in April 2016
- Depp is claimed to have grabbed Heard’s hair and hurled a magnum of champagne at her after she confronted him
- He then allegedly left a note that read “happy f***ing birthday”
- Heard was pictured with a bruised face after Depp allegedly threw a phone at her in May 2016
- Depp texted astonishing claims that Heard was having an affair with Elon Musk
- The Pirates of the Caribbean star trashed a hotel room in a £8,000 rampage as lover Kate Moss slept in bed – but says he never hit supermodel
- Depp claimed he stood in front of Heard with a knife “asking her to cut me”
Giving evidence today, Depp acknowledged there were drugs throughout the celebrations but denied being aware of an explicit memo.
It was put to him that Heard had been organising drugs for her friends as part of the party for the wedding.
Depp said: “That seems to be the plan”.
And he admitted speaking to his lawyer David Sherborne that there had been drugs at the wedding and rehearsal dinner.
The High Court today heard allegations that Heard was left with a bruised face after one incident where Depp is claimed to have thrown a phone at her face during a row over poo found in their bed.
Depp today said the faeces were definitely “not left by a three or four pound dog”, referring to the couple’s Yorkshire Terriers Boo and Pistol.
The court heard that after being sent a picture of the poo from his assistant, Depp replied with a string of jokes including “Amber Turd” and “Amber’s in the dumps”.
In one message he wrote: “It’s hilarious. Not sure I’ve laughed this hard for years. At least the photographs are good.”
The star today told the court he thought Heard or one of her friends was the “the only ones crass enough to have committed such an act” with American author iO Tillett Wright named in court as a possible culprit.
But Depp said the incident later meant he “made the difficult decision not to see (Heard) anymore” – saying it was a “fitting end” to their relationship.
Then in May 2016, just a few weeks after the faeces were found in the bed, Depp went to the couple’s home to pick up some personal items.
Sasha Wass QC, for The Sun, alleged he was “spoiling for a fight” with Heard.
And she said the star then got angry after hearing Heard laugh with pal iO Tillett Wright about the incident involving the faeces. He allegedly flew into a rage – throwing a phone at her face and swinging a magnum of wine at her.
Heard apparently yelled “stop hitting me Johnny” and “you will never hurt me anymore” – but Depp insisted she was “20 feet away”.
Photographs of Heard with a bruised and red face were then shown in court, injuries allegedly caused by the phone.
The photos were used by Heard when she applied to the court for a domestic violence restraining order against Depp on May 27.
The court was told this morning that the poo had been found in the couple’s bed the morning after Depp had been two hours late to Heard’s 30th birthday party at the Eastern Columbia Building in Los Angeles in April 2016.
It was also heard an astonishing rant where Depp accused Heard of having an affair with Tesla billionaire Elon Musk.
He called her a “gold digger” and a “$50 stripper” before saying he wanted karma to “take the gift of breath from her”.
The actor’s case against NGN and executive editor Dan Wootton came after an article was published in 2018 with the headline “Gone Potty: How can JK Rowling be ‘genuinely happy’ casting wife beater Johnny Depp in the new Fantastic Beasts film?”.
NGN is defending the article as true and says Mr Depp was “controlling and verbally and physically abusive towards Heard, particularly when he was under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs” between early 2013 and May 2016, when the couple split.
The pair met in 2011 and began living together in 2012 before marrying in Los Angeles in February 2015.
