Johnny Depp called the accusations of sexual abuse and physical abuse made by his ex-wife "insane" Wednesday, as he returned to his witness stand for his libel case against Amber Heard.
When Depp was asked his reaction to Heard's claims, Depp replied, "Ridiculous and humiliating, ludicrous. Painful, savage. Unbelievably cruel, cruel. And all false."
Depp testified Wednesday as a witness in rebuttal -- Heard and he both testified extensively earlier during the trial.
He provided specific responses to certain allegations made by Heard, as well as Whitney Henriquez, her sister who provided some of Heard’s strongest corroborating evidence.
His testimony was concluded by a denial of all allegations.
He stated, "I have never, in my entire life, committed sexual battery or physical abuse." "And I have lived with it for six year, and am now waiting to find the truth."
He stated that no matter what happens, he did get there and he did tell the truth. I have spoken out for what I've been carrying around on my back for six years, reluctantly.
Wednesday afternoon, Depp will be cross-examined.
Fairfax County Circuit Court is currently suing Heard over an op-ed that she published in December 2018. It described herself as "a public figure representative domestic abuse." Depp's lawyers claim that he was defamed in the article, which never mentioned his name.
Depp denies ever having struck Heard, and claims that she was the abuser. Heard testified to more than a dozen instances of physical abuse that she claims she suffered at Depp’s hands.
Depp also denied a claim by Heard that Depp was not responsible for getting her a part in the blockbuster superhero movie "Aquaman." Heard testified that she was offended by Depp's question about how Depp got her the role.
Depp said, however, that Heard auditioned to play the role and that he spoke on her behalf to the studio. Heard's lawyers blocked him from disclosing the details of their conversations, but he said that Heard did ultimately get the job.
Also Wednesday, Kate Moss, a supermodel and ex-girlfriend of Depp, denied ever being pushed or attacked by him during their relationship.
Moss also served as a witness in rebuttal. Heard made reference to Moss in her testimony. There was also a rumor that Depp had forced Moss down a set stairs during their relationship.
Moss testified via video link that Depp had never assaulted or threatened her. After a rainstorm at a Jamaican resort she fell down one flight of stairs, and Depp helped her.
She gave evidence for less than five minutes and was not cross-examined.
Depp also addressed this accusation in his testimony. He said it was the same as Moss claimed. He claimed that he had told the story about Moss years ago to Heard and that "Ms. Heard took the story, and made it into an extremely ugly incident in her own mind.
Both sides will present their last witnesses Thursday. Closing arguments are expected Friday.
