A video posted by Crime and Law channel shows the incident that drew a chuckle from the ‘Pirates of Caribbean’ star. The lawyer was questioning Depp’s house manager Ben King about an incident in 2015 that left the actor with a severed finger. “You didn’t know what could cause damage to Mr. Depp’s hand while you were there on March 8, correct?” Rottenborn asked King. The house manager replied that a doctor had told him that Depp had injured his finger, but he was soon cut off by the lawyer.
“Uh, objection, hearsay,” Rottenborn interrupted.
“Wait, you asked the question,” Judge Penney Azcarate responded.
“Sir, if anyone had a problem with my drinking, at any time in my life, it was me,” Depp replied. “The only person I’ve abused in my life is myself.” Depp then remained on the stand for redirect examination from his attorney, Jessica Meyers. Depp is suing Heard, his ex-wife, for USD 50 million over a 2018 op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post in which she described herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” Though Depp was not named in the article, he claims it cost him lucrative acting work.
