Actor Johnny Depp has strenuously denied ever assaulting his ex-wife Amber Heard, according to CNN Senior Entertainment Editor Sandra Gonzalez.
He took the stand in the defamation trial against Ms. Heard, claiming that her domestic abuse allegations cost him millions of dollars.
Gonzalez said Depp testified for three hours in an emotional defense that covered many topics, including his past and his relationship with Amber Heard.
“They’re really building a broad picture of the actor in an attempt to show who he is as a person rather than what we’ve all heard in the media and give him a chance to speak,” he told Sky. Australian News.
Depp indicated on the stand that this was the first opportunity to speak about his version of the abuse allegations, something he had been waiting to do for three years.
