Johnny Depp’s body is covered in scars from a history of self-harm and once stubbed out a cigarette on his own cheek, Amber Heard has claimed.
Heard claimed she saw several signs of “deep cuts” on Depp’s body and said they discussed about them during their relationship.
“His body is covered in scars”, she told the High Court.
“I asked him about it. He told me various stories of doing it to himself when in pain and he couldn’t handle it anymore.
“His body is full of these scars. I saw him do it to himself or threatened me with it sometimes.”
Depp accused Heard of self-cutting her own arm in 2015, leaving behind scars that she insists are from an attack by Depp.
She claimed that she had never self-harmed, but saw Depp stub a cigarette out on his cheek during the stay in Australia while drunk and high on drugs.
“I was standing right in front of it”, she said. “It was deliberate, he put it out on his cheek and screamed at me how much he didn’t feel it because of how much pain he was already in.
“He was trying to justify taking drugs.”
Earlier, a make-up artist for Heard recalled seeing bruises and injuries to the actress’s face in December 2015, when she was due to appear on the Late Late Show with James Corden.
Melanie Inglessis said Heard told her Depp had tried to suffocate her with a pillow at their Los Angeles penthouse, headbutting her and pulling out chunks of her hair.
“She said that Johnny and I had a fight”, said Ms Inglessis. “The main thing that stuck in my mind about the incident on the bed was she said he tried to suffocate her with a pillow.
“She felt he tried to kill her that night. She said he dragged her by her hair.”
