Amber Heard has blamed Johnny Depp’s teacup Yorkie named Boo for the infamous incident where faeces were left on the couple’s bed.
During testimony in the courtroom of the couple’s billionaire defamation trial on Monday, Ms Heard responded to the allegation that she had called the incident a “joke gone wrong”.
Ms Heard told the court she would not find that funny and was also “not in the mood to joke around” at the time after she was allegedly “attacked” by Mr Depp the day before.
“Absolutely not,” she said of the suggestion that she staged the incident as a joke. “First of all, I don’t think that’s funny. I don’t know what a grown woman does.
“I wasn’t in the mood to joke around either. My life was falling apart… I had just been attacked on my 30th birthday by my violent husband who I was desperately in love with,” she said.
Ms Heard told the court that the dog had eaten Mr Depp’s marijuana as a puppy and had suffered from bowel control problems ever since.
Boo often shared the couple’s bed with them and they would often leave the dog on the bed as if they put it on the floor and immediately went to the bathroom, she said.
That day, Ms. Heard said that she and her friend were packing to go to the Coachella music festival to celebrate her 30th birthday.
He said Boo had been left in bed while they got ready, suggesting the dog was responsible.
Mr Depp previously testified that human faeces was left on the bed he shared with Ms Heard days after the pair fell out in 2016.
He claimed he had wanted to visit her penthouse in Los Angeles to pick up some belongings while she was away, but learned “it wasn’t a good time to go there” after being shown a photo of “our bed and my side.” . of the bed was human fecal matter.”
Depp’s security guard and driver, Starling Jenkins, testified that Heard told him the stool was a “prank gone terribly wrong.”
He said he had a conversation with the actress in which he allegedly made the shocking admission while driving her to Coachella.
“We had a conversation about the surprise he had left on the boss’s bed, before he left the apartment,” Jenkins said.
Ms. Heard told the court on Monday that Mr. Starling had driven her and her friends back from Coachella, but “didn’t have a conversation with him,” was never alone with him, and was sitting in the back back of the car with a friend. .
Ms. Heard returned to the stand for a third day of testimony as the trial resumed after a week-long break on Monday.

The pirates of the Caribbean The actor is not named in the article, which is titled “I have spoken out against sexual violence and faced the wrath of our culture. That has to change.”
However, Depp claims that it falsely implies that he is a domestic abuser, something he adamantly denies, and has left him struggling to land roles in Hollywood. He is suing for $50 million.
