• Morgan Higby Night, a witness for Johnny Depp, contradicted Amber Heard's claim Depp was violent during a 2013 getaway
  • Night said he never saw Depp being violent to anyone and claimed that Heard yelled at her ex-husband
  • The Hicksville Trailer Palace owner said he returned to his house when Heard was yelling because he found it triggering

A witness in the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard defamation trial called the actress "jealous and crazy" on Twitter before his court appearance in Fairfax, Virginia, this week.

Filmmaker and motel owner Morgan Higby Night took the stand Tuesday in the trial, where he was confirmed to have posted a response to a tweet from user @ThatUmbrella in April that read in part, "Johnny Depp will be accused of being jealous because a woman was 'sitting close' to Amber Heard," People reported.

"Depp said she had 'taken happy something.' Deep [sic] is accused of 'removing her hand and yelling at Amber,'" @ThatUmbrella continued.

In his April 21 response, Night claimed on Twitter, "That never happened. I was with them all night. Amber was the one acting all jealous and crazy."

Night, who was called to the stand by Depp's lawyers, previously owned the Hicksville Trailer Palace in Joshua Tree, California, where a group getaway in 2013 with Depp, Heard and friends allegedly turned violent, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Heard previously testified that Depp grabbed a female friend of hers at the trailer park by the wrist because he was jealous. The actress then said under oath that Depp began smashing items inside their trailer.

When asked by Depp's lawyer Camille Vasquez Tuesday if he observed a disagreement between the actor and Heard that evening, Night confirmed that he did.

He recalled that while he was speaking with the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star one-on-one about Hicksville, Heard came over to talk to Depp, looking upset. At that point, Night said he went back into the house, and the pair "went off on their own."

"She started yelling at him, and I didn't want to hear it. Honestly, it was really triggering because I've been in an emotionally abusive relationship before," Night testified, according to a clip shared by Law & Crime Trial Network's Cathy Russon.

Night also said that he "never saw Depp get physical with anyone" and that in his recollection, it was the "Aquaman 2" star who yelled at her ex-husband that night.

"She was upset at him and she was yelling at him... He was kind of cowering and seemed almost afraid, and it was really, like, odd to see because he was older than her obviously, but I just went back in the house," Night claimed.

Depp is suing Heard for $50 million over a 2018 op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post about surviving domestic abuse. It did not mention Depp by name, but the actor argues that it damaged his reputation and career.

Heard is countersuing him for $100 million, claiming Depp launched a smear campaign to discredit her allegations as a "hoax."

The trial continues with Kate Moss reportedly testifying for Depp Wednesday. Depp's and Heard's lawyers will deliver their closing arguments Friday.
