Amber Heard Claims Depp 'Covered House In Blood and Raw Meat and Set Fire To The Sofa' During 24-Hour Blind Rage

Amber Heard has appeared back in court once again today to give testimony against ex-husband Johnny Depp in a libel battle against News Group Newspapers.

Amber Heard has appeared to give testimony in court for the fourth day in a row against Johnny Depp in a libel battle against News Group Newspapers.

During the session Heard was questioned on claims that Depp caused $150k worth of damage to their rented Australian home back in 2015 in what was called a 24-hour binge.

When asked to describe what she had witnessed at the time, Heard stated to the court that there was food and blood on the walls as well as bird loose in the house:

There was mashed potato and gravy smeared on the door outside. There was a bird in the house... It scared me to death when I entered the room. It must have flown in the window. There was blood everywhere...I thought it was from my feet but it wasn't. I thought it was paint, a kind of brownish colour, on the walls. It was dark brown at first, then lightened out to a milky brown colour.

The Aquaman actress also stated that there was drawing all over the walls 'all the way down the stairs and stairwell' as well as 'blood on the walls, on lampshades and everywhere with written messages'.

The 34-year-old also stated that the actor had burned a hole in the couch among other severe fire damage, to which Depp did not deny. Heard stated:

He had burned through cushions and lampshades... There was a couch flipped over. It appeared he had set fire to one of the cushions because the couch was burned around it.

The accusations don't stop there, Heard also states that during his 24-hour rampage Depp had also smashed a window in the bedroom and spread raw meat all throughout the house. Heard told the court:

There was a broken window... My paints were out, it appears to be he had either thrown or dropped paint on the floor and on the wall. There was both paint and blood, I could see textures
I found raw meat, at first I didn't know what it was on the floor. I continued to find it for the next day hidden in various places...There was a spilled pool of blood on the floor. I could see my own bloody footprints but I could see dripping blood.

Heard continued to divulge to the courtroom:

There was death metal music playing really loud. Tons of broken glass. The tiled floors were still wet. There were windows broken. There was so much glass on the floor I could barely find a pathway to walk. The ping pong table was broken.

Previously the Pirates of the Caribbean actor has accused Amber of severing the tip of his finger. But, the actress revealed that Depp had done the damage himself after repeatedly smashing a phone against the wall. Heard spoke about the incident:

[It was] about 24 hours into his binge, rage. I had come downstairs to try and calm him down thinking maybe he should try to eat and sleep. This is after he had held me up against the fridge by my neck and screamed at me for ruining his life. I made him this man.
He held a bottle up against my face. I told me I would slice up my face. After these moments he was angry, so angry he punched the wall a few times. He started hitting the wall. He was punching the wall. He got carried away in the moment.

Amber recounted that Johnny took his hand off her neck and used it to smash a phone against the wall. She also claimed that at the time she didn't know that he had severed his finger but that would have been when it was most likely to have happened:

I watched as this phone was just disappearing in front of my own eyes. It was breaking off in shreds. That phone - it just disappeared. I didn't know he had severed his finger.

Heard also revealed that on their trip to Australia that year, Depp hurled 30 bottles at her, to which he denies.

During her appearance in court, the actress also claimed that November 26 2015, was the most violent night of her marriage and that she had been smothered, slapped and suffocated at the hands of Depp in their LA home.

Johnny Depp previously denied claims that he acted violently on that night but Heard pressed that her husband left her with 'oozing scalp wounds' after headbutting her just under a month later. The Edward Scissorhands actor defended himself by claiming that the headbutt was an accident and insists he was not violent towards his then-wife during their fight.

News Group Newspapers' lawyers are defending their case against Depp who took the company to court for their 2018 article calling him a 'wife-beater'. The lawyers are basing their argument on Amber Heard's 14 allegations of abuse at the hands of her then-husband between 2013 and 2016.

The trial is set to come to an end this week but an immediate ruling will not be likely.
