Johnny Depp had said the tip of the middle finger on his right hand was severed when Amber Heard threw a vodka bottle at him
Johnny Depp and his former wife Amber Heard’s case resumed on Monday. The seven-person jury hearing the case listened to testimony from two doctors called as witnesses by Heard´s team and a Hollywood industry expert.
Dr Richard Moore, an orthopaedic surgeon who was called as an expert witness for Heard, seemingly rejected Johnny Depp’s claims after the jurors were shown graphic photos of Depp’s bloody finger.
Moore, who reviewed Depp’s medical records, said he did not believe Depp’s injury was sustained in the way the actor described.
“The wound doesn’t appear to be a sharp glass laceration,” he said.
Moore said he believed it was instead a “crush injury,” though he acknowledged under questioning from Depp’s lawyers that he could not say for sure what happened to the finger.
Heard had testified that she thought Depp might have injured himself when he smashed a wall-mounted phone into “smithereens” during their argument that night in Australia, where Depp was filming the fifth “Pirates” movie.
