JOHNNY Depp cried when he was told he kicked his wife Amber Heard during a huge bending of drinks and drugs, the High Court learned yesterday.
Depp’s personal assistant said he told her he had attacked Ms. Heard in a private jet the day before.
The actor reportedly shouted obscenities before slapping his face and kicking him in the back.
His assistant, Stephen Deuters, texted Ms. Heard the day after the May 2014 incident to apologize.
He wrote, “He was dismayed. When I told him that he kicked you, he cried. It was disgusting, and he knows it. He doesn’t remember much, but we guided him everything that happened. He is sorry, very sorry and just wants to get better.
“He is in tears. He no longer wants to be an f-up – his words.
“He has bad indigestion this morning but otherwise it’s fine. He fell asleep again. He is incredibly apologetic and knows he has done wrong. He wants to get better now. He was very explicit about this this morning. ”
Ms. Heard then told Mr. Deuters that she did not know if she could stay with Depp and “needed time”.
She wrote, “Obviously, he has no idea what he did or to the extent that he did it. If someone was really honest with them about the gravity of the situation, they would be appalled. The Johnny man would be humiliated.
“I am sad that there is no better way to really know the seriousness of yesterday’s actions. Unfortunately for me, I remember in detail everything that happened. “
Mr. Deuters replied, “I know. It is hideous. But it’s a side of the man you fell in love with. ”
The pair was flying from Boston to Los Angeles when Depp flew, the court said.
Depp, 57, believed Ms. Heard was having an affair with James Franco, her co-star in True Deception.
Last week, he admitted it was “very likely” that he had used ecstasy, alcohol, cocaine, marijuana and prescription pain relievers before boarding the plane.
Depp is suing the Sun for calling him a “female drummer” in a 2018 article.
He denies being violent, claiming that Ms. Heard, 34, mistreated him.
He was backed by Mr Deuters, a Briton who now runs the production company Depp Infinitum Nihil.
He said yesterday that he was “extremely surprised and outraged” when he discovered that she was accusing him of beating her.
He said, “I knew Ms. Heard was the abuser in the relationship and I was dismayed that she behaved this way. “
He also claimed that the texts he sent after the plane row were not an admission of abuse.
He said Depp told him to “type whatever you need to type” in order to “calm it down, deflate the situation, create peace and put it aside.”
Sasha Wass QC, for The Sun, told her, “I suggest that this series of texts is a clear admission on your part to Ms. Heard that Mr. Depp had kicked Ms. Heard and that he was not couldn’t remember.
“This cocktail of drugs and alcohol turned Mr. Depp into a monster and he behaved in a terrible way towards Mrs. Heard, and he would forget what he had done. “
The court heard that Depp would ask Mr. Deuters to get him drugs. Wass said Depp asked her to take “mushrooms” before going to the Bahamas for a drug treatment.
Ms. Wass said, “Can you confirm that they are not talking about porcini mushrooms? ”
Mr. Deuters laughed, replying, “I don’t know. ”
Ms. Wass said, “Mr. Depp would disagree with you because he says, “Do you know if we can ask Stephen to contact someone to get mushrooms?” Have you made arrangements to purchase hallucinogenic mushrooms? ”
The PA said, “I probably would have ignored the text.”
Depp also called Ms. Heard a “c” for questioning her drinking. Depp texted Mr. Deuters in August 2014: “She accused me of drinking. I told her no. She is ac. »
On another occasion, Depp allegedly grabbed Mrs. Heard by the hair and threw her a magnum of champagne.
He reportedly became angry after Ms. Heard complained that he was late for his 30th birthday party.
Depp allegedly threw the bottle, grabbed her hair and threw it on their bed, before leaving a note saying “Happy Birthday on your finger” in April 2016.
He said he had just discovered that he had lost £ 515 million at an “unpleasant” business meeting.
Depp said: “I was at the very beginning to learn from my new recently acquired CEO that the former CEOs had (taken) a good deal of my money. They stole my money. “
“MAGNUM OF CHAMPAGNE THROWN”
Ms. Wass said, “You were very close to a bottle of magnum champagne. You picked up the bottle and threw it at her, but she missed it and the glass broke. This is how you express yourself when you are angry – you crush things.
“You grabbed her by the hair and pushed her onto the bed.” You blocked the door when she tried to leave and grabbed her hair and pushed her to the floor. ”
But Depp claimed Ms. Heard attacked him.
A concierge at the Los Angeles apartment building, where Depp and Mrs. Heard had a penthouse, also questioned another allegation of abuse yesterday.
Trinity Esparza said she saw “no injuries” on Ms. Heard’s face in the days following the Depp who allegedly inflicted a black eye on her in May 2016. She said, “His behavior was normal and he there seemed to be nothing extraordinary. ”
The first injury she noticed was six days after the alleged assault and the day she asked for a restraining order, the court learned.
She noticed “a red mark under her right eye,” adding, “I thought it was very special because Mr. Depp was gone [a week earlier]. After seeing the reports on Ms. Heard’s beaten face and the allegations of domestic violence, I was disturbed. ”
Depp says that Ms. Heard’s claims are a “hoax.” Her lawyer, David Sherborne, referred to a message that Ms. Heard’s father had sent to the actor after an alleged assault.

Part of the text said, “I still love you like a brother or a father or something else. “
Mr. Sherborne said, “If your daughter Lily-Rose told you that her husband slapped her, punched her repeatedly, broke her nose, dragged her up the stairs by the hair and had torn off tufts of hair, would you still text him saying “I love you like a father”? ”
Depp replied, “Certainly not. ”
He finished answering questions after almost 23 hours of proof. Coming out of the box, he joked, “I’m going to miss him. ”
