Washington [US]April 20 (ANI): In a defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard’s ex-wife, actor Johnny Depp appeared in a court in Fairfax, Virginia, saying he had never “beaten a single woman” in his life.
“The truth is the only thing that interests me. Lies will not lead anywhere, but lies are based on lies and are based on lies. I am obsessed with the truth,” Depp said in court on Tuesday.
During the testimony, the Pirates of the Caribbean star admitted that he and Hurd had an argument during their relationship, but he never reached “Ms. Hurd’s point of impact in any way, and I have never hit any woman in my life.” CNN. .
Depp and Hurd were married in February 2015 and confirmed their divorce in May 2016.
After filing for divorce later that month, Hurd filed a lawsuit against Depp and provided photographic evidence of the alleged ill-treatment, according to an American magazine.
Depp originally filed a $ 50 million lawsuit in March 2019, but it was adjourned due to the pandemic. Back in November 2020, Depp lost a British defamation lawsuit against the British tabloid The Sun for calling him a “wife beater”.
“She was considerate. She was loving. She was smart. She was kind. She was cheerful. She understood,” he said.
He added that they share a common interest in blues music and that Hurd often took off his boots when he returned home. But for a year and a half, he said, “it’s as if she’s almost become a different person.” Depp’s testimony will continue on Wednesday. The trial is due to continue until the end of May, and Hurd will also be able to testify in his defense. (ANI)
