He also said that he presented his 13-year-old daughter with marijuana, saying that he wanted to be sure that the medicine was of good quality and that she was in a safe environment when she tried it, and that singer Elton John had helped him get treatment for his drinking.

Heard or his friends were also accused by Depp of defecating in their beds as a farce, and Heard was accused of having relationships with Tesla CEO Elon Musk and actor James Franco .

Depp admitted on Thursday, however, that he had suffered from “some sort of nervous breakdown” during one of their violent encounters, but denied having hit her.

The couple met on the set of the 2011 film The Rum Diary and married in February 2015. Heard filed for divorce after 15 months and their divorce was finalized in 2017. The case is expected to last three weeks.
