Amber Heard admitted to leaving poop in her and ex-husband Johnny Depp’s bed after an argument in April 2016, one of Depp’s security guards testified this week.
Depp is suing Heard for more than $50 million for defamation he claims hurt his Hollywood career.
Security guard Starling Jenkins testified about having “a conversation pertaining to the surprise [Heard] left in the boss’s bed” before accompanying the “Aquaman” actress on a trip, according to Insider.
Heard described “the defecation” as “a horrible practical joke gone wrong,” Jenkins added.
Earlier in the trial, Depp recalled the alleged incident from his side. According to the actor, he told Heard he wanted a divorce and decided to get his belongings from their place while she was at a music festival in California’s Coachella Valley. He was then informed by security guard Sean Bett that it wasn’t a good time and shown a photo of the incident.
Heard allegedly told Depp that it was their dogs that created the mess, but the actor didn’t buy it. “They’re teacup Yorkies,” he testified, according to Entertainment Weekly. “They weigh about 4 pounds each. The photograph that I saw — I lived with those dogs for many years. It was not the dogs.”
“I didn’t feel like I deserved that kind of treatment,” Depp said.
“I was shown a picture of what the problem was,” the 58-year-old recounted about the alleged incident. “I had gone to Mr. Bett and said, ‘She’s at Coachella. I think it’s a good time to go downtown so that I can get some of my things and get them out of there,’ especially things that were precious to me … and he said, ‘I don’t think now’s a good time to go.’ And I thought, ‘It’s the perfect time. She’s not going to be home for two days.’ Then he showed me a photograph on his telephone of … it was a photograph of our bed, and on my side of the bed was human fecal matter.”
Depp said his “initial response” to being shown the photo was to “laugh.”
“I laughed,” he testified. “It was so outside. It was so bizarre and so grotesque that I could only laugh.”
Heard is countersuing Depp for $100 million in damages, accusing her ex’s legal team of making false claims about her.
