Johnny Depp may FINALLY reveal the true story behind Amber Heard POOPING on his bed
Depp has noted how the sick stunt was a 'fitting end to their relationship'
Embroiled star Johnny Depp is expected to talk about the infamous pooping incident when he takes the stand on Tuesday, April 19, as part of his defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard. Depp has accused Heard or a friend of hers defecating on his side of the bed as part of a revenge stunt.
Depp, 58, is suing his ex-wife Heard, 35, after he claimed an op-ed she penned in 2018 painted him as an abuser. While the 'Aquaman' star did not name her former husband in the Washington Post opinion piece, his legal team has argued that it hampered his career and cost him several gigs in Hollywood. Depp is suing Heard for $50 million in damages, while the latter has filed a counterclaim of defamation for $100 million.
It's worth noting that a key date in the trial is April 22, 2016, when Heard hosted her 30th birthday party at their downtown Los Angeles penthouse. Depp reportedly arrived late and decided he wouldn't attend the soiree, something that he says enraged his ex-wife. Heard has accused Depp of throwing a magnum wine bottle at her before leaving the residence, something he has denied. However, a housekeeper for Depp called him the next morning to inform him that someone had defecated on his side of the bed and then put the covers over it.
Depp is confident that Heard or one of her friends is responsible for the disgusting incident. Heard has claimed one of their Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo, had an episode of incontinence, but Depp says the poop was too large for a 3- or 4- pound dog to excrete. He later said the pooping incident was the "final straw" in their marriage. “It was not left by a 3- or 4-pound dog. I was convinced that it was either Ms. Heard herself or one of her cohorts involved in leaving human feces on the bed,” he said.
The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star even confronted his ex-wife's pal, photographer iO Tillett Wright, about his alleged involvement in the incident. Wright said in court that after Depp asked him whether the poop belonged to him, he heard the star and his then-wife arguing, and “the phone drop” — prompting him to call 911.
Depp has noted how the sick stunt was a “fitting end to their relationship.” At a previous trial in London's High Court, the “London Fields” actress tore up and denied she was responsible. “That is unimaginable to me,” she said, before claiming one of their teacup terriers likely had an accident. Depp said he initially laughed at the "absurd" incident but soon realized that the marriage couldn't be saved.
“I wanted nothing to do with her,” Depp said, adding that he tried to make the separation amicable. A text message he sent Heard was read in court, with Depp writing, “All my love and regrets … I wish you nothing but good.”
