Johnny Depp claims Amber Heard would threaten SUICIDE after heated clashes
Johnny Depp accused Amber Heard of threatening to commit suicide "many times" after they had a heated argument. The actor appeared in court on Wednesday, April 20, for his defamation trial against his ex-wife, saying, "Ms Heard had spoken of suicide on a couple of occasions, so that also becomes a factor. That’s always something that lives in the back of your brain and that you fear."
Depp, 58, also claimed that whenever he tried to leave, Heard, 35, would stop him and tell him that she would "die" in need of him. "Many times when I would try to leave, she would stop me at the elevator with the security guards, crying, screaming, you know, 'I can’t live without you. I'm gonna die.' But you had to get out," Depp stated.

Depp stated that if he was able to "escape," Heard would track him down to his house, even late at night. "Five minutes later...," Depp claimed. "She would arrive in her nightgown, screaming in the parking lot in front of my house. Screaming, heavens, it’d be 4 in the morning, 3 in the morning,” he alleged. “It was ludicrous, it was out of control, it was uncontrollable."
On Wednesday, Heard maintained a grim expression as Depp continued his testimony. She has yet to react in court to the most recent claims. Depp is suing Heard for $50 million in defamation in Fairfax, Virginia, for a 2018 op-ed she penned for the Washington Post on surviving domestic violence. Depp, who was married to Heard from 2015 to 2017, claims that his ex-wife made up abuse allegations in order to get a large divorce payment, which has harmed his career.
The actor filed a lawsuit against his ex-wife Heard in March 2019, claiming he never hit her and suing to "clear my name." "My goal is the truth. One day you're Cinderella and then in zero point six seconds you're Quasimodo. I didn't deserve that and neither did my children," Depp said. "Never did I myself reach the point of striking Ms. Heard in any way, nor have I ever struck any woman in my life."
Several images of Depp and Heard, supposedly taken during their marriage and given to the court for review, show the two with various scars. Heard, who filed for divorce from Depp in May 2016 after less than two years of marriage, has claimed that the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star physically abused her and endangered her life. These charges have been categorically rejected by Depp. The six-week trial, which began on Monday, April 11, is still in its early stages. Elon Musk, Paul Bettany, and James Franco are all slated to testify.
