Raging Johnny Depp texted that he would “burn” and “drown” ex-wife Amber Heard then “f–k her burnt corpse” during their volatile relationship, a court has heard.
Previously unseen 2013 messages alleged to have been sent by “Pirates of the Caribbean” star to actor friend Paul Bettany were read out in London’s High Court today.
Depp, who attended the hearing in person, was in the room as his texts to Bettany were read aloud.
He allegedly wrote Nov. 6, 2013, “Let’s burn Amber,” the court heard.
The court was told he allegedly texted Bettany again that day to say, “Let’s drown her before we burn her!!! I will f–k her burnt corpse afterwards to make sure she is dead.”
The court also heard further texts allegedly sent by Depp to Bettany in May 2014, which read: “I’m gonna properly stop the booze thing, darling… Drank all night before I picked Amber up to fly to LA, this past Sunday…Ugly, mate.
“No food for days…powders…half a bottle of whiskey, a thousand red bull and vodkas, pills, 2 bottles of Champers on plane and what do you get..???
“An angry, aggro Injun in a f–kin’ blackout, screaming obscenities and insulting any f–k who got near…I’m done.
“I am admittedly too f–ked in the head to spray my rage at the one I love…For little reason, as well I’m too old to be that guy But, pills are fine!!!”
Depp is in court in London for a preliminary hearing in his libel suit against British newspaper The Sun over an article that alleged Depp had been abusive to Heard.
Depp’s lawyer David Sherborne said the case would feature “diametrically opposed” versions of events from Depp and Heard.
“One person, one side, is lying, and one is not,” Sherborne said. “Obviously, we say that it is Ms. Heard (who is lying), Mr. Depp is 100% clear about that.”
Sherborne claimed that Heard was not a victim but the “aggressor” in the couple’s relationship. Depp and Heard divorced in 2017.
The full hearing is due to start on March 23. Depp is also suing Heard for libel in the United States.
