During the weekend’s deposition of more than 6,000 pages of court documents, Amber Heard’s sister informed her employer that the actress had “done it now” and hacked off Johnny Depp’s finger with a bottle.
Attorneys for Depp and Heard fought hard to introduce or omit evidence in their high-profile defamation trial in Fairfax, Virginia, according to newly released court documents.
“Pirates of the Caribbean” actor Johnny Depp testified in April that Heard threw a bottle of vodka at him in Australia in 2015, which smashed and severed the tip of his finger during a fight.

As for Depp’s finger injury, Heard claimed it was caused by him smashing the phone to “smithereens” and sexually assaulting her with a vodka bottle in a drunken frenzy. Whitney Henriquez’s former boss, Jennifer Howell, details the moment she reportedly received a message from Heard informing her about the gruesome occurrence in Australia in her deposition, which has been made public as part of the newly-unsealed records.
“She just screamed, ‘She’s done it now. She’s cut off his Goddamn finger,’ and made this huge proclamation. And I pushed my chair back. I was like, ‘What?’” Howell told Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez. “And she goes, ‘She cut off his finger. She cut off his finger.’ And then she bolted out the door and was like, ‘I got to call somebody. I got to call somebody,’” Howell added.

“It was Amber and Johnny, and she apparently had thrown a bottle and cut off his finger, is what (Henriquez) reported when she came in from whoever she talked to outside,” Howell said when Vasquez asked if Henriquez had defined who “she” and “he” were in her story. As part of his bombshell trial, Johnny Depp admitted to lying to doctors about his horrific finger injuries.
“I said that I had smashed it in these large accordion doors,” the actor said from the stand. “I didn’t want to get (Heard) in trouble. I tried to just keep things as copacetic and as easy as possible for everyone. I did not want to put her name in that mix.” An op-ed piece by Heard in the Washington Post in 2018 claimed that Depp, 59, had been defamed, and a jury awarded him $10.35 million in damages.
When Heard, 36, claimed that Depp’s former lawyer had made false and disparaging comments about her to the media, a jury awarded her $2 million in damages. Stay tuned with us only on Lee Daily
