Actor Johnny Depp used his sliced finger to daub graffiti on a mirror and walls in blood and paint, during an alleged drug-fuelled “three-day ordeal” he put his ex-wife Amber Heard through in Australia, the High Court has been told.

In another day of explosive revelations during the Hollywood star’s high-profile libel action against The Sun, the court in London has heard more details about the volatile nature of the former couple’s relationship.

As well as the incident in Australia in 2015, while Depp was shooting a Pirates Of The Caribbean film, the court heard details of alleged violence later that year in LA, where it is claimed Depp headbutted Heard – and pictures of the actress with bruises around her eyes were shown to the court.

The actor strenuously denies allegations of abuse and claims it was Heard who abused him.

Here are some of the key moments from day three in court

  • Photographs of a mirror and wall covered in graffiti – some in blood, some in paint – were shown in court. Depp admitted using his seriously wounded finger to write some of the words while the then couple were in Australia
  • The house he was staying in was allegedly left in a “state of complete carnage” after it was trashed by the actor
  • On more than one occasion throughout proceedings, Depp accused Heard of “building a dossier” about him and claimed her allegations of domestic abuse are a hoax
  • He also accused the actress of telling “porky pies” about him to a psychiatrist – Heard allegedly told the medical professional that a film she made with actor James Franco led to a “binge” that put Depp in hospital
  • The actor apologised for giving misleading evidence after he was shown a text message in which he said he “drank all night” and took “powders” and pills before drinking two bottles of champagne on a private flight, after playing down the incident in his witness statement

Depp and Heard met in 2011 and began living together in 2012, before marrying in Los Angeles in February 2015. They split in May 2016.

Their relationship is being put under the microscope as Depp is suing The Sun’s publisher, News Group Newspapers (NGN), and executive editor Dan Wootton, over an article published in 2018 that labelled him a “wife beater”.
