It was revealed in London's court of appeals on Thursday, March 18, that actor Johnny Depp sent an expletive-ridden text message to his nurse in 2016 after his former spouse Amber Heard said she planned to donate her $7 million divorce settlement to a charity, calling her a “f***ing whore” who he wouldn’t touch “with a Hazmat suit on,” claiming she lied about donating their divorce settlement to charity.

“No Way she’ll give a dime to anyone!!! Thank f**k she’s gone!!! Makes me sick to think of how hard I tried to make it work... Now... Honestly, I wouldn’t touch that f***ing whore with a Hazmat suit on!!! What scum. I f***ing hate her!!!” Depp allegedly wrote in the message, according to the report. The text message was shown to the court as the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star 57, launched an appeal over last year’s High Court ruling that he repeatedly attacked his then-wife Heard, which caused him to lose a libel case against British newspaper The Sun for calling him a “wife-beater.”

Justice Andrew Nichol ruled that Depp, 57, had assaulted Heard, 34, on numerous occasions and put her in "fear for her life," three times. The ruling, which came after a three-week trial in July last year, found that an April 2018 column that saw the newspaper describe Depp as a “wife-beater” was “substantially true”. However, Depp has claimed he “did not receive a fair trial” and will seek permission to appeal against the ruling at the Royal Courts of Justice.

Amber Heard's charity claim was a 'manipulative lie'

Andrew Caldecott, Depp's lawyer, has applied for permission to rely on “fresh evidence” that Heard did not donate her divorce settlement to charity. It's worth noting that the Aquaman star had said following her 2016 divorce from her husband that she would split the seven million dollar settlement amount between the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

Caldecott, however, revealed that the hospital had told Depp’s business adviser in 2019 that Heard had not made “any payments" to them. The barrister said in written submissions that Heard's pledges of charity had strengthened her credit "in an exceptional way," and had now been found to be a “calculated and manipulative lie, designed to achieve a potent favorable impression from the outset" and to boost her image and tip “the scales against Mr. Depp from the very beginning."

Depp's lawyer has alleged that Heard only gave $100,000 to the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, $450,000 to the American Civil Liberties Union and $500,000 to another charity anonymously. Justice Nicol had rejected Depp's argument in November that Heard was a "gold-digger," noting in his ruling how "her donation of the seven million US dollars to charity is hardly the act one would expect of a gold-digger." But Caldecott argued that if “the truth about the charity claim emerged at the trial, it would have materially affected Mr. Justice Nicol’s consideration of Ms. Heard’s evidence as a whole."

He explained that the evidence was presented as a "wholly exceptional act of philanthropy, which would have deeply impressed any reasonable person," adding that, “Her public statements expressly stated that the ACLU donation had victims of domestic violence specifically in mind. The subliminal message of the charity claim was, in any event, clear -- Ms. Heard would not wish to keep any of Mr. Depp’s money, because he had subjected her to serious violence. The evidence presented, and was obviously intended to present, her in the strongest terms as both virtuous and a victim.”

Adam Wolanski, an attorney for The Sun, argued that Depp was obsessed with the idea that his ex was a “scumbag gold-digger” and that he had only brought the appeal to “promote his position” in his libel case against Heard over her 2018 opinion piece in the Washington Post about domestic abuse, which is yet to start. As for Heard not having made the promised payments to charity yet, Wolanski said she was paying in installments, and rejected the notion that the texts were “fresh evidence." He also added that it was “fanciful” and “absurd” to suggest that Heard’s charity donations could have influenced the judge’s finding last year in any way. The Court of Appeal will announce its decision on whether to give Depp leave to appeal at a later date.
