Amber Heard SOBS as Johnny Depp's texts wishing for her death are read aloud in court
'I can only hope that karma kicks in and takes the gift of breath from her,' read Johnny Depp's text message about Amber Heard
Amber Heard sobbed in court in a visible emotional display in court when old text messages written by Johnny Depp were read aloud. She responded most strongly to one message where he wished for her death and called her a gold-digger. According to his team's request, Depp, 58, returned to the witness stand on Wednesday, May 25 to clarify several claims made by his ex-wife Heard, 36, during her time on the evidence. He flatly denied all of her charges of abuse and assault, calling them "unimaginably brutal" and "all false."
When it came time for Heard's team to cross-examine Depp, they used some of his old text messages as evidence, including one from February 2017 to a buddy regarding sex with a lady that read: "I NEED. I WANT. I TAKE." Depp said that he "did not write that" and that it was either doctored or altered in some way by someone else using his phone. He told Heard's attorney Ben Rottenborn, "Sometimes you give your phone to people and they text from it."

Was her team trying to make Johnny Depp admit to sending a text message that was marked as "incoming" instead of "outgoing" on his phone?? This is preposterous 🧐🕵️#JusticeForJohnnyDeep @ellisgreg #deppvsheardtrial @CourtTV #IBelieveJohnnyDepp #Mentoo pic.twitter.com/dmxmqaa1Ng
Another text exchange on August 15, 2016, occurred after Heard had filed for divorce and obtained a domestic violence restraining order against Depp in May. In the text, Depp says Heard was "begging for total global humiliation" and "she's gonna get it." The message read, "I have no mercy, no fear and not an ounce of emotion, or what I once thought was love for this gold digging, low level, dime a dozen, mushy, pointless dangling overused flappy fish market... I'm so f***ing happy she wants to fight this out!!! She will hit the wall hard!!! And I cannot wait to have this waste of a c** guzzler out of my life!!!"
The text message went on to refer to Heard as a "50 cent stripper" and said, "I wouldn't touch her with a goddam glove. I can only hope that karma kicks in and takes the gift of breath from her." Heard became clearly emotional when the section about Depp wishing for her death was read aloud, shaking her head and wiping her eyes.
Depp seems to refer to Elon Musk, who began dating Heard following their split, as "Mollusk" in the message, saying he "will stop at nothing." The message was as follows: "Let's see if mollusk has a pair... Come see me face to face.... I'll show him things he's never seen before... Like, the other side of his dick when I slice it off..." When some of Depp's graphic texts were first brought up in court, he had told the courtroom that he was "not proud" of the language he used in them. He described himself as having a "dark" sense of humor.
