Amber Heard’s friend testified today that he heard Johnny Depp threatened to “peel” the actress’s “hair back” in an argument that ultimately ended their marriage, and one where police were called to the scene.
According to reports, iO Tillett Wright made an appearance in court via video link, in the ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ star’s ongoing trial against a UK Tabloid who he alleges defamed him by calling him a wife-beater.
In the hearing, Wright testified he was on the phone with Amber Heard on the night of May 21, 2016, when the ‘Aquaman’ star alleges Depp hurled a phone at her face and assaulting her before storming out of the couple’s Los Angeles apartment.
Tillett Wright told the court he called 911 after hearing “what sounded like a cry or yelp” over the phone while talking to Heard.
Amber’s friend claims he could hear the argument between the two stars over the phone, which included Johnny yelling at Amber to “get out of the house.”
At that point, he testified to hearing what sounded like the phone dropping on the ground and Amber saying something like, “you just threw the phone at my house.”
As we reported, Amber claims Depp threw the phone at her face like a baseball causing it to swell and leaving marks. Pictures of the alleged damage were submitted as part of her domestic violence restraining order against her ex-husband.
At that point, Tillett Wright, who was in New York at the time, said the next thing he heard was Depp saying: “Oh, you think I hit you, you think I hit you. What If I peel your hair back?”
Amber Heard submitted evidence of a different alleged fight where she claims Depp ripped part of her hair out, which she photographed.
Amber’s friend alleges he then heard the actress scream “Call 911” — so he decided to hang up and call the police, who were then dispatched to the couple’s home.
LAPD arrived on the scene and questioned Amber Heard about the situation, but claims she was unwilling to give a statement. Also, one of the officers testified earlier in the trial, that Amber did not have any marks on her face that would lead her to believe she was a victim of an assault.
Tillett Wright, who was the last witness to give testimony in the three-week trial, told the court Johnny Depp suffered from ‘paranoid delusions’ and was ‘in a froth’ after finding poop in the couple’s marital bed.
As we reported, the final Amber and Johnny argument started over the housekeepers finding a piece of poop in Depp’s bed following a nasty fight a month earlier.
Johnny testified Amber, or one of her friends, was responsible for leaving the human feces on the bed and it was the ‘final straw’ in their marriage. The actress denied leaving the feces and blamed it on their dogs.
The ‘Pirates’ star has denied being abused towards his ex-wife and claims it is a ‘hoax’ which was collected over time as a dossier to be used as an insurance policy.
