Bloody photos showing Johnny Depp’s severed fingertip and the actor lying on a stretcher — allegedly after a brawl with then-wife Amber Heard — surfaced in British court Tuesday.
Depp’s lawyers introduced the snaps while claiming Heard was physically violent toward their client, not the other way around.
Depp — who is suing a British tabloid over a 2018 article that called him a “wife beater” based on Heard’s allegations — claims the actress tossed a vodka bottle at the “Edward Scissorhands” actor during a particularly vicious fight in Australia in March 2015, just a month after they were married, severing his right middle finger.
Her camp previously claimed to Page Six that Depp mutilated himself in a booze- and drug-fueled jealous rage when he smashed a telephone against wall and a piece of plastic from the phone severed his digit.
Depp then used his finger stump to scrawl accusations of infidelity by Heard in blood and blue paint on the walls and a mirror at their villa.
His handiwork included the words, “STARRING BILLY BOB EASY AMBER,” referring to actor Billy Bob Thornton. Heard has denied cheating on Depp with Thornton.
Depp didn’t seek medical attention for a day, so the tip couldn’t be saved, a source told TMZ at the time.
The photos show Depp’s bloody finger stump, as well as him lying on a hospital stretcher with sunglasses on and the digit wrapped covered with a small piece of cloth.
