KEY POINTS

  • A video of Johnny Depp's alleged "drunken rage" at Amber Heard was played in the High Court in London 
  • In the video, Depp is seen having an argument with his ex-wife 
  • The actor smashed a wine bottle on the floor and took the phone from Heard's hand when he noticed that he was being filmed

A shocking video of Johnny Depp’s “drunken rage” at ex-wife Amber Heard was played in the British court on Tuesday in which the couple could be seen having an argument.

In the video obtained by Daily Mail, Depp is seen arguing with the “Aquaman” actress in the kitchen. The actor kicks at a cabinet and repeatedly slams the cupboard doors while hurling abusive words in the clip.

The media outlet also pointed out that the “Pirates Of The Caribbean” actor poured some red wine in a glass before throwing that bottle on the kitchen floor while having a heated conversation with his ex-wife. The publication indicated that moments before smashing the bottle of wine on the floor, Depp told Heard that he will give her “[explicit] crazy.”

The video concludes with Depp grabbing the phone from Heard’s hand after noticing that he’s being filmed by her. 

Depp said that it was him in the video and admitted of showing some “violence” with the cupboards, according to the publication. However, he insisted that Heard was not hit during the whole incident.

The “Transcendence” star appeared in a London court after launching a libel case against The Sun, a British tabloid newspaper, that called him a "wife-beater." The 57-year-old actor is suing the publishers of The Sun and the author of the article for the claims that were made in April 2018.

Depp strongly denied being violent to his ex-wife and claimed that Heard has falsely depicted him as a monster. His lawyer, David Sherborne, told the High Court of London that Heard invented the abuse claims and that she was the abuser.

Meanwhile, The Guardian reported that Depp called his ex-wife a “calculating, diagnosed borderline personality” who married him to take her professional career to a whole new level. 

On May 27, 2016, Heard obtained a restraining order against Depp, appearing in court with a bruise on her face and claiming that she was a victim of repeated domestic violence. By May 31 of that year, the actress was battling claims from Depp’s lawyers accusing her of lying about being abused by their client.

Both LAPD officers and bodyguards of the couple denied seeing evidence of Heard being physically harmed by Depp.

Heard and Depp met on the set of “The Rum Diary” in 2009, but they did not become romantically linked until 2012 when Depp separated from longtime partner Vanessa Paradis.
