Johnny Depp reacts when court hears audio of Amber Heard calling him ‘Junkie Johnny’

Johnny Depp appeared to scoff when audio of Amber Heard calling him “Junkie Johnny” was played in court during the former couple’s multi-million libel trial.

Heard testified on Monday for a third day of depositions, when the trial resumed after a one-week break.

She told the court how she would face “different versions” of Depp and that it was a “juggling game” about which version she would get.

In the audio played for the courtroom, Heard says, “So I get different versions of it. I get the insecure or scared version of him that attacks in a different medium each time.

“So if it’s Adderall or Junkie Johnny then he’s abusive and he’s a bully and he’s evil.”

At the mention of “Junkie Johnny”, Depp – who had his head down taking notes at the time – was seen smiling with his shoulders heaving in a laugh.

Heard went on to state in the audio that this version of her ex-spouse would lead to “violence or anger”.

“If I argue with him, I’m abusive… if I don’t say anything, I’m dismissive… if I get involved with him, I’m part of the problem,” she says.

She adds, “No matter what I do, I’m fucked.”

Heard told the court the recording showed her trying to explain to Depp the “futility” of trying to “negotiate with him and the substances he was using at the time”.

“No matter what I did, no matter what I did to let go and leave… nothing I did made a difference, nothing I did changed his anger against me, nothing I did changed his violence against me, nothing I did calmed him down. down,” she said.

“And I was constantly juggling what kind of versions of Johnny I was dealing with.”

Depp is suing his ex-wife for defamation in a 2018 editorial she wrote for. The Washington Post where she described herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse”.

The Pirates of the Caribbean The actor is not named in the article, titled “I spoke out against sexual violence – and faced the wrath of our culture. That has to change”.

However, Depp claims this falsely implies that he is a domestic abuser – something he vehemently denies – and that has left him struggling to get roles in Hollywood. He is suing for $50 million.

Heard is suing for $100 million, accusing Depp of orchestrating a “smear campaign” against her and describing his lawsuit as a continuation of “abuse and harassment.”

The trial began April 11 in Fairfax, Virginia, with explosive depositions taking place inside the courtroom.
