We have actually reviewed an extremely in-depth account of Amber Heard‘s variation of what occurred to Johnny Depp‘s hand. But his case, in which she cut the suggestion of his best center finger by tossing a container at him, has actually constantly been a bit much less clear to us.
But in a video clip of a 2018 deposition, freshly launched by DailyMail.com, Johnny provides a much more brilliant summary of his injury and also precisely just how, he states, he obtained it.
Just as troubling, if real, is listening to Johnny clarify needing to exist regarding his finger injury at the time “to protect” Amber.

During the testament, which belonged to a different lawful conflict with a previous lawyer, Johnny defines just how he informed individuals he had actually been injured:
“Basically I had a pretty nasty injury that I actually had to protect her at the time. And so I said that it was caught in the door in these huge accordion doors at this house, that wasn’t the case at all.”
Hmm That’s not the tale that headed out to journalism. Honestly we hardly remember this from the moment as it had not been all that remarkable or stunning. But obviously the Public Relations individuals– that needed to state something after recording on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales needed to be closed down momentarily– described Johnny damaged his wrist while go-kart auto racing on MotoGP globe champ Mick Doohan‘s private track in March 2015. Other less descriptive reports from around the time didn’ t attempt to clarify just how he obtained the injury, simply describing the level of it, that he required a pin put right into his finger. (Innerestingly mostly all of the first coverage of that tale has actually because been taken offline.)
We have no concept to whom he was informing the caught-in-a-door tale. But in the depo he after that defines the occasions he currently asserts took his fingertip:
“She smashed, she threw a vodka bottle at me and my, my hand was resting on the marble of the bar like that. The first bottle went whoosh just past my ear. And the second one was a larger bottle and she threw it from about this distance and it smashed into the bar, which, this finger who I now call ‘Little Richard’, was, the tip of the finger was severed and all the bone in here was completely shattered, and it looked like Vesuvius.”
A volcano of gore. That is a psychological image alright. Yeesh.
The very first time we saw the finger in public, besides when it was covered throughout the last days of recording on Pirates, went to the best of Black Mass at the BFI London Film Festival in October2015 It was recovered however never ever the exact same.
Depp takes place to state he needed to fly to Los Angeles for surgical treatment and afterwards hang out recovering since he “didn’t want to lose the finger”:
“I got infectons, I ended up with MRSA twice. It’s very complicated. I was trying to just get the finger back, you know. And then deal with the insanity of having had my finger chopped off by this woman that I was married to.”
The legal representative after that asks Johnny regarding Amber’s side, and also he reacts:
“She states that I did it myself, yep. By punching a wall surface I tell you, I wish to see the responses from researchers, I indicate, medical professionals, that know with this kind of injury, this kind of point, since I would certainly like to see her clarify just how somebody strikes a wall surface and also if they place their hand with it, its completely dry wall surface or something.”
She really asserts he held a phone and also wrecked that versus the wall surface to obtain the injury. She likewise states he dipped the hurt finger blue paint and also created on a mirror “Easy Amber” and also “Starring Billy Bob” (of Billy Bob Thornton, her previous co-star with whom he apparently charged her of having an event). On that component a minimum of, the tales correspond, as Johnny does not contest the “finger painting” post-injury. As for the remainder? Nothing alike. What will a court state? What do YOU assume??
