Johnny Depp reacts as court hears audio of Amber Heard calling him ‘Junkie Johnny’

Johnny Depp appeared to scoff when audio of Amber Heard calling him “Junkie Johnny” was played in court during the former couple’s multimillion-dollar libel trial.

Ms. Heard took the stand Monday for a third day of testimony as the trial resumed after a week-long break.

She told the court how she would deal with “different versions” of Mr Depp and that it was a “juggling act” over which version she would get.

In the audio played in court, Ms Heard says: “So I get different versions of him. I get the insecure or scared version of him that attacks in a different medium each time.

“So if it’s Adderrall or Junkie Johnny, then he’s abusive, he’s a tyrant, and he’s mean.”

At the mention of “Junkie Johnny,” Mr. Depp, who had his head down taking notes at the time, was seen smirking, his shoulders shrugging in laughter.

Ms. Heard went on to state in the audio that this version of her ex-spouse would lead to “violence or anger”.

“If I argue with him, then I’m abusive…if I don’t say anything, then I’m dismissive…if I engage with him, then I’m part of the problem,” she says.

She adds, “No matter what I do, I’m screwed.”

Ms Heard told the court the recording showed her trying to explain to Depp the “futility” of trying to “negotiate with him and the substances he was taking at the time”.

“No matter what I did, no matter what I did to desecsapelet to get away…nothing I did made a difference, nothing I did changed his anger towards me, nothing I did changed his violence towards me, nothing I did calmed him down,” he said.

“And I was constantly juggling the kind of versions of Johnny that I was dealing with.”
