Despite the fact that the judgment was delivered two months ago, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s court struggle continues to generate headlines. This debate is being fueled in part by both parties’ appeals to the ruling, as well as fresh information about the case emerging from previously sealed records. So, how exactly did Depp sustain that horrible finger injury? Amber Heard’s sister is said to have confessed.
One of the most memorable incidences mentioned during Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s protracted court fight is a violent encounter in which the Pirates of the Caribbean star lost a portion of his finger. Both actors have their own versions of the story, but new material is coming from the previously mentioned released court records. As per TMZ, Amber Heard’s sister Whitney Henriquez revealed to her former employer that the Aquaman star was responsible.
According to this TMZ article, Whitney Henriquez’s former supervisor Jennifer Howell related these incidents prior to the defamation lawsuit coming to trial. When Johnny Depp’s finger was injured in 2015, Howell was working as an art dealer. She maintains that Henriquez was in her presence when Heard called to tell her about the finger-slicing event during her pre-trial testimony. According to the record of Howell’s testimony, Henriquez stated that her sister had “done it now.”
And she goes, ‘She cut off his finger. She cut off his finger.’ And then she bolted out the door and was like, ‘I got to call somebody. I got to call somebody.’
This testimony was conducted by someone such as Johnny Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez, who has gained notoriety for representing the actor in a number of high-profile lawsuits (as well as rumors she was also in a relationship with the actor). Vasquez inquired about what Whitney Henriquez informed her former supervisor just at the time, to which Howell replied:
This piece of news is sure to become viral, considering the fingertip incidence was discussed several times during Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s lawsuit case. As they deposed in the defamation action, both actors were probed about the horrible occurrence, with Depp’s recollections of it being particularly disturbing.
This deposition was eventually prohibited from the courtroom, since 965 pages of records relating to Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation claims were recently released. There was a lot of potentially harmful material on each of the actors in these documents. More details on Depp’s departure with Disney and the Pirates of the Caribbean series is included. However, if this testimony regarding Heard had been part of the widely publicised trial, it would certainly been devastating.
Professionally, Johnny Depp is set to shoot his first post-trial feature, and Amber Heard will star in Aquaman 2 on March 17, 2023. Meanwhile, you may plan your next movie experience by looking at the 2022 film’s release dates.
