Amber Heard's Sister Testifies At Trial: Johnny Depp Joked About Microwaving Actress' Dog
During her testimony, the actress alleged that his substance abuse led to him losing "control" of his bodily functions. She said: "He’d pass out in his own vomit. He’d lose control of his body, he’d lose control and everyone would clean up after him. "This man lost control of his bowels and I cleaned up after him. His security cleaned up after him, changed his pants in front of me."

Johnny Depp laughed as he held a dog out of a car window, according to Amber Heard’s younger sister, Whitney Henriquez.


Henriquez, 34, testified how “scared” she was when the “inebriated” Pirates of the Caribbean star allegedly dangled the pooch out of the moving vehicle during the high profile libel trial in the city of Fairfax in Virginia.


While taking the stand in court, the 36-year-old actress' sister claimed: “At some point, I heard the back window open and Johnny is holding our dog out the window and I froze.


“I was scared because I just remember thinking I knew how inebriated he was and the dog was very small and I thought if she twitched or if lost her somehow she was just going to go out of the window.”


Henriquez detailed how Depp, 58, was “laughing” as he brought the dog back into the car.


She said: “He was laughing just this really scary, loud cackle.”


“Then he made some joke about putting her in the microwave.”


Henriquez outlined that the alleged incident took place when Depp was intoxicated and had just accused Heard of having multiple affairs.


The Aquaman star’s sister stated for the record that she had arrived at their temporary accommodation in Orange to find it “filled with smoke” and that Johnny was “slurring” and very angry with his now ex-wife.


Henriquez who has defended her sister in previous libel action made by Depp as she detailed the toll his alleged abuse has taken on her, such as panic attacks and bruising alleged that “his speech was slurred,” before explaining that it was difficult to comprehend what he was saying.


She went on to claim that Depp was “upset” that Heard had been papped with her pal Marie De Villepin while in France and he understood it “must have meant she was having an affair with her.”


Henriquez testified that Depp told Heard that “everyone would laugh at” her before his attention “shifted to a painting on the wall that was done by one of my sister’s exes.”


Henriquez alleged that Depp became “convinced” the painting which apparently had hung in that spot since they moved in “was only the wall to taunt and tease him,” and proof she was back together with her former flame.

While addressing the court, Henriquez said that during the alleged incident, Heard embraced her then-boyfriend but he told her to “f*** off” and that Henriquez saw that Heard's face was “swollen and red” and that her lip “did appear to be cut”, but did not think much of it as she did not know about the alleged abuse.


Henriquez told the court that she assumed it was from “crying” and that the alleged cut “wasn’t my focus frankly”.

According to Henriquez, she attempted to get Depp to vacate the premises as he was running late to film a documentary about the Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards.


She claimed that they managed to get him to leave but he insisted on bringing Heard along, and the alleged dog incident took place on the way to set.


Henriquez's allegations come after Heard concluded her own testimony at the defamation trial put forward by Depp, following Heard's 2018 Washington Post op-ed piece where she referred to herself as "a public figure representing domestic abuse." 


In the article, which didn't reference Depp by name, Heard wrote: “I spoke up against sexual violence and faced a culture’s wrath. That has to change.”

Depp, whose divorce from Amber was finalised in 2017 after two years of marriage, asserts that the piece falsely implies that he is a domestic abuser  an allegation he has strongly denied  which has ruined his Hollywood career and therefore is suing her for US$50 million (S$70 mil). 


In response, Heard is counter-suing for US$100 million, claiming that Depp is leading a “smear campaign” against her, calling the legal action as a part of ongoing “abuse and harassment”.
