Johnny Depp’s $100 million defamation lawsuit against his former wife, Amber Heard, continues in Virginia. As the trial moved forward, court heard a savage string of texts about Amber that Depp shared with his best friend. The texts were made public, and they’re not the best look.
The jury heard on Wednesday that Depp wrote in a text to his best friend he wished Amber Heard’s “rotting corpse is decomposing in the trunk” of a car. During the cross-examination of Depp’s artist best friend Isaac Baruch, Heard’s lawyer asked him about the said text.
Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft asked Baruch: “Do you recall Mr. Depp ever telling you that he, in base terms, hoped that Amber’s rotting corpse is decomposing in the f**king trunk of a Honda Civic?”
Baruch replied, “Yeah, I’m seeing it here so obviously yeah it was said. It was written.” The court heard texts were sent a few weeks prior to Baruch moving out of the penthouse in Los Angeles where Depp was letting him live rent-free.
Bredehoft further interrogated, “Do you recall Mr. Depp calling Amber Heard a c**t and saying it was her fault?”, to which Baruch replied, “It’s written there I see that.”
Baruch then read a part from Depp which read, “That c**t ruined such a f**king cool life we had for a while.”
After moving out of Depp’s penthouse, Baruch went to California, where he worked as a musician and artist as well as an office manager at the infamous Viper Room club in Los Angeles that Depp once owned.
Baruch testified that Depp loved his artwork so much to the extent that he let him live rent-free in a penthouse apartment he owned in the Eastern Columbia Building. He also paid him around $100,000 during the more than three years he lived there.
