Amber Heard spoke about an incredibly shocking alleged experience with Johnny Depp where the actor performed a “cavity search” on her, while on a trip with friends in June 2013. Amber, 36, became very emotional on the witness stand as she recounted the incident where Johnny, 58, searched her for drugs, during the defamation trial against her ex-husband on Wednesday, May 4.
Amber said that the couple had been staying in a trailer while on a trip, where they used recreational drugs with friends. She claimed that Johnny became aggressive as he got jealous of a woman on the trip, and they went back to the trailer they were staying in “to try and calm him down,” but when they got to the trailer he “started smashing things.” She said she went into the bedroom area, and he followed her in, and she realized that he was searching for something. She said that Johnny accused her of “hiding” something (which she later learned was his cocaine), and when she asked what he was talking about, he responded aggressively. She claimed Johnny said, “You know what I’m f**king talking about. Be honest with me. Where are you hiding it?”
Amber then said as Johnny was searching for the drugs, he “ripped” part of her dress. She said that he started “He’s grabbing my breast. He’s touching my thighs. He rips my underwear off, and then, he proceeds to do a cavity search,” she said. “He said he was looking for his drugs, his cocaine.” The actress said that she was confused as to “how” he thought that she was hiding the cocaine, as she was against using the drug.
As she continued explaining how she felt, Amber explained how she was unsure how to respond. “He was telling me, ‘We’re going to conduct a cavity search.’ [He] just shoved his fingers inside me. I just stood there staring at the stupid light,” she said, as she started tearing up. “He twisted his fingers around. I didn’t say like, ‘Stop’ or anything.”
After the alleged incident, Amber explained that she didn’t have any recollection of what happened that night or the next morning. “I don’t know how we went to bed that night. I don’t know how I went to bed. I don’t know how I slept. I don’t know how we woke up. I don’t remember having a conversation with him the next day. I don’t remember talking to him about it or confronting him about it. I remember wanting it to be okay,” she said. “I remember just wanting whatever f**king weird trip—excuse me—whatever trip that was to end.”
The first day of the actress’s testimony described much of her and Johnny’s early relationship. Amber also spoke about a few different episodes that the pair went through during their time together, including the first time that Johnny allegedly hit her. Johnny has denied claims that he was abusive towards Amber.
Johnny is suing Amber for $50 million due to an op-ed that she wrote for The Washington Post. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor has said that the piece has hurt his reputation and cost him movie deals. He testified earlier in the trial, detailing different incidents that the couple had during their time together, and he has denied allegations of abuse against Amber.
