In her first time on the stand, Amber Heard said that Johnny Depp threatened to kill her

The actress Amber Heard assured this Wednesday that her ex-husband, also an actor Johnny Deppthreatened to kill her during an argument the two had on their yacht while traveling in the Bahamas.

A week after Depp finished his testimony, Heard took the stand at the Fairfax court (Virginia, USA). to testify at the trial facing the couple for defamationand in which they accuse each other of mutual abuse.

In the lawsuit, Depp accuses her of defamation for an article she published in The Washington Post in 2018, after her divorce, in which she claimed to have suffered “domestic abuse.”

“I am here because my husband denounced me for an article I wrote,” started Heard, 36, who insisted that it is “deeply painful” for her to have to relive the darkest moments of their five-year relationship.

Throughout her statement, which lasted more than three hours, Heard described Depp, 58, as a violent manunable to control his aggressiveness and with serious drug addiction problems.
