Amber Heard says Depp denied prenup request and told her only way out of marriage is death

WARNING: This article contains allegations of physical and sexual violence that some readers may find distressing.

Amber Heard delivered her second day of testimony on Thursday in the trial over a defamation lawsuit brought against her by ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Heard is being sued by Depp for $50m for implying he abused her in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed. Although she did not name him, he claims her allegations impacted her ability to work.

The trial is on hiatus for a week with both sides issuing statements of confidence in how proceedings are going.

On Thursday, Heard spoke extensively about her troubled relationship with Depp and detailed alleged physical fights. The court heard a harrowing account of an alleged sexual assault on Heard during a brutal and bloody altercation in Australia in 2015.

Heard had previously described an “unusual and remarkable” first meeting with Depp and a blossoming relationship as she fell “head over heels in love”. However, her testimony from her took a darker turn as she recalled the first time he allegedly hit her, his jealousy from her, and his drug and alcohol use from her.

“She threw herself into the line of fire,” Heard said. “She was trying to get Johnny to stop. Her back from her was to the staircase, and Johnny swings at her… I do n’t hesitate and wait, I instantly think of Kate Moss and stairs.
