After several days of trial, the time has come for Johnny Depp to take the stand to declare his version of the alleged assaults of which his ex-partner, Amber Heard, claims to be a victim.

During the previous days, her bodyguard, nurse, private doctor, and family gave details to the judge and lawyers of what they know about the alleged domestic violence suffered by the American. Now it was the turn of “Captain Jack Sparrow”, who remarkably affected told the truth about the many conflicts in his marriage. The actor began by saying that he is focused on ” cleaning his image ” in the face of the accusations that Amber has made against him, considering that everything that has been said is a lie. “ The truth is the only thing that interests me. Lies will get you nowhere, but lies build on lies and breed more lies. I am obsessed with the truth,” he expressed.

Although he did accept that there were strong discussions between the two, he flatly denies having hit her at any time, assuring that he has never assaulted a woman in his life. “ There were arguments, things like that, but I never got to the point of hitting Mrs. Heard in any way. I have never hit a woman in my life,” she said.

Let us remember that it was Heard who accused him several years ago of having beaten, choked, pushed, kicked, and even abused her during an argument while they lived in Australia, where he was filming scenes for the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean”.

Depp explained that the first year of their marriage ” was too good to be true “, as she behaved as a ” caring, loving, intelligent, kind, funny, understandable

He also explained that after she published an article in the Washington Post in 2018 revealing the alleged attacks, he decided to sue her for $50 million to defend himself against public opinion that was even negatively affecting his young children in the school.

I felt it was my responsibility to defend myself not only for myself in that case but also for my children. I thought it was diabolical that my kids had to go to school and they were approached by her friends with the infamous People magazine cover with Mrs. Heard with a bruise on her face,” she commented.

These accusations he described as ” heinous and criminal ” are not “truth of any kind”.

To finish, the renowned actor recalled the hard moments he experienced in his childhood due to the physical abuse against him by his mother, which his sister had also mentioned when he had to get on the stand.

It should be noted that the other witnesses who have testified before the court have assured that they were able to witness Amber’s abuse against the actor, being she who triggered the conflicts between the two. Her assistant stated that she also suffered abuse from the actress, who spat in her face when she once asked for a raise.
Depp must continue to testify during the next session this Wednesday
