Lawyer Sasha Wass for a UK tabloid gave closing arguments today in the trial where Johnny Depp is suing them for calling him a “wife beater.:

In her closing statement, the lawyer said there is “overwhelming evidence of domestic violence or wife-beating behavior, catalogued over a three-year period.”

She said Johnny was “a hopeless addict who repeatedly lost his self-control and all ability to restrain his anger.”

“Permeating all of the evidence in this case is the character of Mr. Depp himself — his well-documented evidence of violence and destruction over his adult life which have occurred when he was under the influence of drink and drugs,” she added.

She added he was “was subject to irrational mood swings and abnormal behavioural patterns, which would not have been present when Mr. Depp was clean and sober, and Mr. Depp has a name for this metamorphosed entity — namely, The Monster.”

Johnny has repeatedly denied these claims and had famous actresses come to his defense. His ex wife in question, Amber Heard, was accused of lying in court.

Kristina reportedly said she was told by Amber that “Johnny will never let me go, he would rather destroy me than let me go.”

She also said Amber was “embarrassed” at the idea of bad publicity over her marriage, but she “had to leave him.”

She also said Johnny arrived at Amber‘s 30th birthday party slurring his speech, and had to be propped up.

“She (Heard) became very nervous about her acting – whether it was for a part he wanted her to do or for one he didn’t want her to do, her work was dictated by Johnny,” the acting coach said in a statement.

“I could usually tell if it was something he wanted her to be involved in because she became a nervous wreck about getting it right.”

“She started telling me that she couldn’t do certain roles because he didn’t want her doing ‘whore parts,’” her acting coach also said.

When Amber did a Guess campaign, he reportedly told her she “shouldn’t be doing stuff like that anymore because it made her look like a ‘cheap whore.’”

Amber also claimed in court that Johnny tried to throw her sister down the stairs, which is why she hit him in 2015.

If you didn’t know, Johnny is in the middle of a libel lawsuit against British tabloid The Sun and News Group Newspapers for calling him a “wife beater,” which he denies.

During the testimony, Amber dismissed the accusations that she fabricated allegations of domestic violence against Johnny, according to ABC News and THR.

She also said she hit Johnny for the first time in March 2015 to defend her sister.

“He was about to push her down the stairs and the moment before that happened, I remembered information I had heard that he pushed a former girlfriend — I believe it was Kate Moss — down the stairs…I will never forget this incident. It was the first time after all these years.”

She was then questioned by Johnny‘s lawyers about why she’d never brought up the allegation involving Kate before.

“I’ve not had the liberty of time or space or energy even to list every thought that crossed my mind,” she said.

The lawyer accused her of weaving a “web of lies” and “making this up as you go along.”

“I can just tell you after everything I had been through; I had been strangled, punched, sexually assaulted, among other things,” Amber said.

Amber Heard‘s private texts to her mother were just released.

Amber Heard’s Private Text Messages to Her Mother Released

Amber Heard‘s private text messages that she sent to her mother in 2013 have been released in court amid Johnny Depp‘s trial against a UK tabloid for calling him a “wife beater.” Johnny has denied all claims of domestic abuse in his relationship with Amber.

In a witness statement, Amber said that she and Johnny got into a violent fight in March of 2013 over a painting by her ex-partner Tasya van Ree that was in her home.

A text to her late mom read, “It’s terrible, mum. I don’t know what to do.” Another text to her mom read, “He’s nuts, mum. Violent and crazy. I’m heartbroken that this is who I love.”

Another text was read aloud which said, “I feel like I’m on a very fast train that’s about to explode, but I don’t want to jump off and leave my love behind. So I stay on the train, even though I know it’s about to explode.”

About these texts, Amber told the court, “I was so in love with Johnny at that time. We had had a wonderful year together where he was sober and clean and that is how I got to know him. And Johnny, when he was like that, (is) generous, loving, he is a remarkable man when he is like that. I loved him and I didn’t want to lose that… the other side of him was a monster, but I always held out hope that he would get clean and sober.”

In another message, Amber‘s mom suggested she tell her father about the alleged abuse, to which Amber responded, “I can’t tell dad.”

Amber continued, “I felt safe to tell my mother, but I didn’t know how my dad would react. I had never been in this situation before and I didn’t know if he would react violently… to Johnny. I didn’t want to make it worse.”

Another text was also read aloud between Amber and Johnny‘s former assistant, who said he was coming to get Johnny at noon. At 6pm, Amber said she was able to get Johnny to come down.

“What was going on between noon… and about 6 o’clock that evening?” Amber was asked, to which she responded, “Johnny refused to leave… (he was) snorting lines of cocaine, drinking whisky and he was saying we really need to work this out, he wanted to get to the bottom of it. He wanted me to admit that I was having an affair with, not only Tasya van Ree, my ex-partner, but also a gentleman I hardly knew… he had just gotten it in his mind that I had these affairs and he wouldn’t leave until I admitted it.”

Amber also gave testimony earlier in the week about nicknames Johnny Depp had for some fellow actors.

During the day’s procedures, Amber accused Johnny of throwing dozens of bottles at her “like grenades,” saying he threw “all the bottles in reach” towards her during an explosive 2015 fight on a trip to Australia.

“He started picking them [bottles] up one by one and throwing them like grenades,” she said, adding that it was “around 30 in total.”

“He threw all the bottles that were in reach, all except for one which was a celebratory magnum-sized bottle of wine.”

Amber was accused of lying in court by one of Johnny Depp‘s lawyers, Eleanor Laws.
