After actors and ex-couple Johnny Depp also Amber Heard came front to face in the former’s libel trial on Tuesday, new photos of him in the hospital have come afloat.
The bloodied photos were brought up into court showing the Pirates from the Caribbean actor lying on a stretcher with a severed finger allegedly after his fight with ex-wife Amber Heard.
The gruesome snaps were shown by Depp’s lawyers within the British court for his defamation suit against UK tabloid The Sun over an article that referred to him being a ‘wife-beater.’
Depp’s legal counsel argued that the Aquaman actor should be the one inflicting physical violence on him instead of it being the other way around, as claimed by Heard earlier.
Depp asserted that Heard had tossed a vodka bottle at him into the midst of one of their rancorous fights in Australia back in March of 2015—only a month after they tied the knot.
Earlier, Page Six reported that Depp had allegedly mutilated himself amidst a resentful, drug-fueled frenzy, after which he accused his wife of cheating on him by Billy Bob Thornton by using his bloody stump to write “STARRING BILLY BOB EASY AMBER” on the wall with paint.
Heard denied Depp’s allegation that she cheated on him with Thornton.
A source should told TMZ back then that Depp’s severed finger could not be saved as he hadn’t sought medical attention for a day.
