Thursday say testimony by several witnesses in the Virginia defamation trial of Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard. Ellen Barkin took the stand, she was an actress with a minor part in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, who dated Depp for 3 to 6 months in 1994.
In addition, a Disney exec said Amber Heards editorial was not the reason they dropped Depp from Pirates of the Carribean. And the couple's former pre-nuptial lawyer, said Depp suddenly fired her and called her a bitch.
Below are my notes of Ellen Barkin's testimony, followed by notes of other witnesses.
I am an actress, who for ten years was friends with Johnny Depp. We met in the 1990's, ten year friendship. Relationship took a romantic turn after I had moved to Hollywood and he switched the buttons.
In 1994 the relationship became sexual for several months, 3 to 6 months. I saw him 3 or 4 times a week.
We lived a ten minute drive apart, there were other people in the house, he had an assistant, his sister, that's all I can remember. JD called the asst "pig."
I was always aware that he drank to excess. He was drunk a lot of the time. He was a red wine drinker.
Cocaine, hallucenigenics , cocaine and marijuana. He called me and told me he was tripping.
I know he was always drinking or smoking a joint, at least dozens of times.
His behavior was the same whether or not he used.
When we were shooting Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, he threw a wine bottle across the room at his assistant. The bottle didn't hit anyone. Mr. Depp. He threw it in my direction, when I was with a group of people.
Depp broke up with me. There was a lot of crying and jealousy, he didn't want me to go back to Los Angeles at the time. "He was jsut a jealous man. Once I had a scratch on my back, he said it was from me having sex with another man."
When he became jealous he also become demanding.
