Johnny Depp testified in British court Tuesday that then-wife Amber Heard may have once pooped in their bed as a “prank.”
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor said in a previously written statement read in court on the first day of his libel case that the actress or “possibly one of her friends” put the feces there — and that Heard later claimed it was “just a harmless prank,” Britain’s Mirror said.
Depp said the disgusting incident occurred after a party for Heard’s 30th birthday in their Los Angeles penthouse in May 2016 — and following a blow-up between the stormy couple.
“I understand that the following morning [after the party], Ms Heard (or possibly one of her friends) defecated in our shared bed,” Depp said, according to the statement.
“On 12 May 2016, Ms Heard confessed to our estate manager, Kevin Murphy, that leaving the feces in the bed had been ‘just a harmless prank,’ thereby effectively acknowledging that she had been responsible, whereas she had previously sought to blame our dogs,” the “Edward Scissorhands” star said.
But Depp said the poop couldn’t have been the work of the pair’s tiny Yorkshire teacup terriers because they were too small to jump up on the high bed and besides, their poo would have been a lot smaller.
Depp said that’s when he decided to divorce Heard, whom he has been locked in a vicious public battle with for several years, even after their official split in 2017.
Depp is testifying as part of a libel suit he filed against Britain’s The Sun over a 2018 article in which the paper called him a “wife-beater.”
The actor told the court that he has gotten violent and “taken every drug known to man” — but insisted he has never hit a woman, adding that Heard is the one who got physical with him.
Depp’s camp first made the bedroom feces allegation against Heard in 2018, when the UK’s Mirror reported that the incident occurred.
The actor and his wife had a blow-up the night before, and Depp stormed out of the pad, where the housekeeper found the feces the next day, the paper said.
A Depp source told the Mirror at the time that there was “strong, photographic evidence that connected Amber to the feces.”
A Heard rep scoffed at the notion, blaming the poo on her pooch Boo.
The dog has “serious bowel-control issues,” the rep said. “There was never a joke, it wasn’t something done to be disrespectful.
“It was an innocent thing, it’s what pets will do.”
