Johnny Depp appeared in court on Tuesday to defend himself against claims that he is a wife-beater.
During one of his witness statements, Johnny Depp acknowledged the fact that he refused to look at the red flags during his marriage to Amber Heard.
“She was then extremely friendly to me and keen to tell me about the break up with her former partner that she had recently gone through. If I had known then what I know now, I would have seen the red flag warning signs, but I did not. She was beautiful, seemingly incredibly interested in me and my work, and I fell for it. She bombed me with what appeared to be love,” he said.
Johnny Depp claims Amber Heard had an agenda
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor said that it was only much later that he understood that Heard had an agenda. Depp said that one of Heard’s agenda was to marry him to advance her career. And the other one was to benefit from him financially.
“For example, at the time, she repeatedly told me how much she admired my films; however, later in our relationship, she admitted that she had never seen any of my films. She knew what she wanted and I was an easy target,” he said.
Amber Heard reportedly diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder
The Edward Scissorhands actor also said that his time with Heard was incredibly unhappy. And the actor described his ex-wife as calculating, diagnosed borderline personality, sociopathic, narcissistic, and emotionally dishonest.
Johnny Depp and Heard went to marriage counseling years ago. And the counselor told them that the Aquaman actress had a borderline, toxic narcissistic personality disorder and is a sociopath.
“I am now convinced that she came into my life to take from me anything worth taking, and then destroy what remained of it,” he said.
Amber Heard fat-shamed Johnny Depp
Meanwhile, Depp also revealed that his ex-wife fat-shamed him on at least one occasion.
During their marriage, Heard, reportedly, described Depp as a fat old man. And the actress also accused Depp of being a horrible father to his kids.
Amber Heard used to be close to her ex-husband’s kids
While speaking with Marie Claire UK, Heard revealed that she has a wonderful relationship with Depp’s children.
“It is an honor and the greatest, most surprising gift I have ever received in my life. I feel new flavors that I didn’t know existed; new colors that I didn’t know of have been added to my life. I’m so happy,” she said.
The libel case of Johnny Depp against Heard is set to begin in January.
