The Caribbean pirates The star spoke very candidly on the stand after being back there by his own legal team. Wearing a gray suit with a blue shirt and a dark-patterned tie, the 58-year-old movie star opened up about Hard’s domestic violence allegations and his unwelcome reaction to other claims.

What does it feel like to hear it after asking him Aquaman The star’s testimony, A-Lister, who was born in Kentucky, explained:
“Crazy. The heinous allegations of violence, the sexual violence that he blamed me for, the madness that he accused me of. I don’t think anyone enjoys dividing himself and telling the truth but there are times when it just goes out of control. The reason is to do it. Terrible. Ridiculous, insulting, ridiculous, painful, barbaric, unimaginably brutal, cruel and all lies. And all lies. “
She has also, very strongly, denied claims that she has sexually abused and / or physically abused her in the past – especially against Hard – and has spoken out about her POVs that she has told the “truth” throughout the ordeal.
The City of lies The star on the stand says:
“I have never in my life told a sexual battery, physical abuse, all these weird, offensive stories that I did these things and have lived six years with it and are waiting to be able to reveal the truth. So it’s not easy for any of us, I know, but no matter what happens I’ve told the truth and I’ve been talking about what I’ve been reluctantly carrying behind me for six years.
Interestingly, when the courtroom broke down for lunch in the middle of his stand, the judge Penny Azcaret He stood up and joked with Depp:
“Don’t break anything on your way out.”
The actor smiled in response to the comment, though Dailymail.com Note, “It was not clear what the source of his joke was.”
Still, there were several serious moments during his testimony under oath on Wednesday. Such Perezcious readers will recall from our previous report, Supermodel Will not He had earlier testified about an incident in which he apparently fell down some stairs while on vacation with Depp in Jamaica. Moss testified that Depp did No. Push him down the stairs, although Hard had previously claimed that he had been told a deliberate push.
In a key part of his testimony, following Moss’s statement under oath, Depp said:
“As Kate Moss testified, it happened many years ago and exactly what happened. I talked to Miss Hard about the incident because it was raining so hard the day Kate slipped. I reminded him of the story. Miss Hard took the story and turned it into a very ugly incident in her mind. There has never been a moment when I pushed Kate down any set of stairs yet she [Heard] He has said this three times before. ”
And after Herd’s lawyer Benjamin Rottenburn Depp thought the actress had just heard a “rumor” about Moss falling off the stairs, Depp counter-shot:
“What rumors? Quite simply we were in Jamaica, I left our bungalow about three minutes before that, I was standing outside and it started to rain as if it was raining. I remember seeing Kate come out the door and there were three small wooden stairs, she slipped her legs up, she landed on her lower back. He was obviously physically in pain, he was hurt, he was crying. I ran and grabbed him as if he were OK. “
Depp explicitly summed things up from there, adding:
“That’s it, it’s the whole story but then the rumor of it, Miss Hard. I didn’t hear a rumor of it before I caught it. It’s like that.”
All right then! He is certainly making his point.
