Johnny Depp’s $100 million defamation lawsuit conflicts with his former wife, Amber Heard, carry on within Virginia. As the trial shifted forward, the court listened to a fierce thread of texts about Amber that Depp exchanged with his best friend were made public, and they’re not the best look.
The jury listened on Wednesday that Depp wrote in a text to his best friend he wished Amber Heard’s “rotting corpse is decomposing in the trunk” of a car. During the cross-examination of Depp’s artist best friend Isaac Baruch, Heard’s lawyer asked him about the said text.
Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft asked Baruch: “Do you recall Mr. Depp ever telling you that he, in base terms, hoped that Amber’s rotting corpse is decomposing in the f**king trunk of a Honda Civic?”
Baruch replied, “Yeah, I’m seeing it here so obviously yeah it was said. It was written.” The court listened to texts sent a few weeks former to Baruch moving out of the penthouse in Los Angeles where Depp was letting him live rent-free.
Bredehoft further interrogated, “Do you recall Mr. Depp calling Amber Heard a c**t and saying it was her fault?”, to which Baruch replied, “It’s written there I see that.”
Baruch then read apart from Depp who read, “That ct ruined such a f**king cool life we had for a while.”
After moving out of Depp’s penthouse, Baruch went to California, where he worked as a musician and artist as well as an office manager at the infamous Viper Room club in Los Angeles that Depp once admitted.
Baruch gave evidence that Depp loved his artwork so much to the extent that he let him live without fear in a penthouse apartment he admitted in the Eastern Columbia Building. He also paid him around $100,000 during the more than three years he lived there.
