Johnny Depp slapped Amber Heard three times when she laughed at how he changed a tribute tattoo to ex Winona Ryder to read “Wino Forever,” a London court heard Wednesday.
Starting the second day of his explosive testimony in his libel case against The Sun, Depp, 57, was immediately accused of attacking his ex-wife when he was drunk, after she teased him about the tat — that previously read, “Winona Forever.”
The laughter “provoked disappointment” and “then anger” in the actor, London’s High Court was told by Sasha Wass, the lawyer for The Sun, the newspaper Depp is suing, according to DailyMail.com.
“You then, Mr Depp, slapped Ms. Heard across the face,” Wass told him in court, the outlet reported.
“You slapped her more than once, because after you slapped her the first time, she didn’t react, she just eyeballed you, she just stared at you, and that made you more angry, and you slapped her again,” Wass reportedly said.
Depp called it “patently untrue,” insisting, ‘That is not correct, it’s untrue. It didn’t happen.”
The star — who on Tuesday admitted having taken “every drug known to man” — conceded that it was “possible” he was taking cocaine in March 2013, when Heard claims the tattoo-tease attack happened.
Depp is suing The Sun over an April 2018 article that said he was a “wife beater,” which he vehemently denies — accusing his ex-wife of all the violence in their marriage.
The Sun’s defense relies on Heard’s allegations of 14 incidents of violence by Depp between 2013 and 2016.
