The audio of the disturbing exchange was broadcast to the London High Court during Depp’s explosive defamation lawsuit against the newspaper The Sun – which he says falsely described him as a “woman beater” in an article from 2018 based on Heard’s allegations.
“Don’t cut your skin. Please do not cut your skin. Why would you do that Please don’t, “replied Heard, reported The Sun.
The bizarre incident happened just a month before the convicted couple signed their divorce. Their location when recording is unclear.
After Heard refused the gruesome request, Depp yelled, “Cut, cut, cut!” Before calling it “py,” the newspaper said.
“Lower the knife. Just lower the knife. No! Pleaded the star “Aquaman”.
Depp then said, “I want to look at you. There is a way for the pain to go away. ”
The audio ended with Heard saying, “This is wrong. “
Sun’s attorney Sasha Wass grilled Depp over the incident.
“I asked him to cut me,” he testified, dressed in a pale gray suit with a brown tie and a white clutch. “If she didn’t want to, I would do it myself. ”
The dramatic audio recording closed Depp’s exhausting fourth day on the witness stand, which was supposed to be the last.
His testimony has taken longer than expected and he will return to court Monday morning for another round of punitive questions, Sky News reported.
Depp insisted that he never got his hands on Heard and accused her of perpetrating all the violence in their marriage.
