Hollywood actor Johnny Depp took the stand once again on Monday in his ongoing legal battle with his ex-wife, Amber Heard, in a high-stakes $100 million defamation trial, Your Content has learned.
The courtroom was filled with tension as audio recordings of heated arguments between Depp and Heard were played.
Although it remained unclear who had recorded each conversation, one thing was certain – the exchanges were intense.
One of the recordings captured Depp expressing his fear of the situation escalating, saying, “If I don’t walk away, it’s just going to be a bloodbath.
Like it was on the island, it’s not worth it. Why be miserable, can we just have some understanding?”
In another contentious moment, Depp can be heard shouting, “You’re a f—–t!” during an argument with Heard.
Depp’s lawsuit against Heard stems from a piece she wrote for the Washington Post, where she detailed her experience as a victim of domestic abuse.
Depp is seeking $50 million in damages, claiming that Heard’s allegations tarnished his reputation.
Meanwhile, Heard is countersuing for $100 million, alleging that Depp defamed her by calling her a liar.
As the trial continues, both parties remain locked in a battle that holds significant financial and personal implications, according to The Independent.
