Johnny Depp is seen smashing up kitchen cabinets and breaking glasses in a video secretly recorded by Amber Heard.
As Depp’s defamation trial against his ex-wife continues, footage showing the A-list actor during a drunken rage has been played in court.
The short clip shows the Pirates of the Caribbean star yelling “motherfu****” repeatedly. He can also be seen kicking at the furniture and slamming the doors of kitchen cabinets.
At one instant, Depp picks up an empty glass and smashes it near Heard.
“What happened? All I did was say sorry. Did something happen to you? I don’t think so,” Amber can be heard saying in the clip. Pointing at an empty whisky bottle, she added: “You drank this whole thing this morning? You’re smashing sh*t.”
After the video played in the Virginia courthouse, Heard’s attorney, Benjamin Rottenborn, asked the actor if he was “violent” as part of cross-examination.
“Clearly I was having a bad time. I don’t know what with regard to, but being illegally recorded by your chosen other is quite fitting with the rest of the photographs and tape recordings. She tried to hide it from me and laughed and smiled at the end. That was the most interesting part,” Depp responded.
He added: “I did assault a couple of cabinets but I did not touch Miss Heard.”
Further poking at the actor, Rottenborn asked him if his “standards of southern gentleman” were not in the back of his mind at that moment.
“I don’t know about anyone else but I’ve had experiences where one does stray from complete control over their emotions at times,” Depp responded.
“I did not try to intimidate Miss heard. Why was she filming? If she was scared to death why didn’t she leave?”
The court also heard the disturbing audio recording in which Depp begged his ex to cut him using his knife.
“Want to cut me somewhere?” Depp asked her. “Just don’t cut your skin, please don’t. Why would I do that? Please don’t cut yourself,” Heard told him.
After a short interruption by a housekeeper, Depp yells: “You f****** hate me!”
Amber then says: “Put the knife down! Put he f***** knife down. Do not do that Johnny.”
As the recording played in the courtroom, Depp grabbed a tissue to wipe his eye. Meanwhile, visibly distressed Heard could be seen fighting back tears.
