IT only seemed there were no more secrets to spill. Taking the witness stand in London’s High Court on July 7 for the opening of his libel trial against Britain’s The Sun newspaper, Johnny Depp had no sooner declared that he was not a “wife-beater” — as the newspaper had alleged in 2018 — than horrifying new details began to emerge about his volatile, violent relationship with his ex Amber Heard.
The shocking allegations — of booze- and drug-fueled rages and physical assaults by both parties — paint an even darker portrait of the couple, who began publicly trading accusations of abuse almost immediately after they tied the knot in 2015. “Both Johnny and Amber went into this knowing it would be humiliating beyond belief,” an insider dishes to Star. “It turns out their world was sicker and more twisted than anyone could have imagined.” As reports from the court proceedings emerge, Star can reveal the source of their vicious battles — including allegations of affairs on both sides — all of which have some wondering what high-profile witnesses might be called to the stand, from Johnny’s ex Vanessa Paradis to his alleged fling Angelina Jolie.
