Shocking new footage has revealed Johnny Depp’s wild lifestyle – including lines of cocaine and pints of whiskey for breakfast.
The invisible photos – shown at the High Court today – were taken in 2013 and offer a macabre glimpse of how the Hollywood star lived with Amber Heard.
An image shows a glass table strewn with alcohol and drugs.
Four lines of cocaine in section and ready to use, with a credit card and a tube nearby.
A “JD property” box marked with the skull and crossbones – which, according to Depp, “probably” contained a drug supply – is also on hand.
Two huge glasses of whiskey – one half drunk – are also visible, nestled among one of Depp’s cigarettes and rolled brown tobacco.
A newspaper is ready to read at the end of the installation next to a vase of flowers, while a CD of Keith Richards can be seen perched on a smart leather tote.
The High Court heard earlier how Depp was to film a documentary on the guitarist of the Rolling Stones when he began “sniffing more and more lines of cocaine”.
Heard and his sister Whitney Henriquez tried for “four hours” to get Depp to go on set, but he “refused to leave,” it was said.
Whitney testified that when he arrived home the next morning, Depp had been drinking whiskey and that there were broken glass and cigarette butts littering the floor.
The lawsuit, where Depp is suing the Sun for labeling him a “woman drummer” in a 2018 article, also showed a photo of Depp seemingly unconscious on the floor next to his bed.
Heard took the photo in July 2013 to “shock” her husband by prohibiting him from drinking and using drugs, the court said.
Sasha Wass QC, for The Sun, asked Depp, “You’ve passed out, haven’t you?” ”
He replied, “I seem to be sleeping. Passed out, I don’t know.
Ms. Wass said, “Well, there is a bed right there. Why are you sleeping on the floor You are fully clothed, your shoes are not wearing and your head does not seem to be in a very comfortable position. ”
Depp said, “It’s hard to say, but there is something that looks like a cushion on which my head rests. It looks like my head is on a cushion. ”
Ms. Wass replied, “To me it looks like a solid object. It is clearly a solid, rectangular object. ”
Depp said, “I can’t make it out. I’m not sure what it is. ”
The photos were shown to the London High Court, where the trial is taking place.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star has been accused of being a “serial domestic abuser” who would attack Heard when he was drinking and using drugs.
But continuing his testimony today, Depp called the allegations “hoax.”
Depp was charged yesterday with turning his “rage and frustration” against Heard, 34, when he “failed to control” his drug and alcohol use.
He “descended into physically destructive behavior” – making him refer to his “drunken and violent character like” the monster “”, it has been said.
Depp revealed his chaotic lifestyle yesterday while testifying.
The Rum Diaries star admitted today that he took drugs at the age of 11 for the first time – and tried all “known to man” substances three years later.
He also confessed to having spent £ 23,834 a month on wine for himself and others in another explosive admission.
After separating from the mother of his children, Vanessa Paradis, whom he had previously called “ex-French albatross”, Depp made a “real effort” to stop drinking, the court said.
The actor even emailed Sir Elton John to celebrate 100 days of sobriety – and spoke of his “Mrs. Thatcher-like brain and liver,” it has been said.
The email said: “My dear Elton, 100 days f *** ing of clarity for an old reprobate who does not look like me.
“Nobody would have ever believed it possible, but for the privileged few, especially for you. ”
Addressing the singer of “eternal savagery against myself”, Depp continued: “I would have been swallowed up by the monster without you. ”
Depp admitted during his testimony that there has been an “internal struggle” inside himself with alcohol and drugs since he was about 11 years old.
The actor explained how he started taking drugs “at a very young age, when life at home was not particularly stable, safe or secure, and there were a lot of inconveniences in the house” .
He said, “My mom asked me to go get her” nerve pills “and I think I was about 11 years old when I realized that the” nerve pills “were calming her nerves, so I brought her nerve pills and I took one and it started (my drug use). “

Depp has instituted separate defamation proceedings against Heard in the United States.
The couple married in LA in 2015 after meeting on the set of the comedy The Rum Diary.
But they divorced two years later after Heard, who donated his £ 5.5 million settlement to a charity, accused Depp of abuse.
