Johnny Depp Opened Up About His Traumatic Childhood!
The Pirates Of The Caribbean actor finally took the stand in his $50 million defamation suit against ex-wife Heard after a long week of testimony from his family, friends, along with medical professionals. Depp has acknowledged and apologized for the problematic language that he used in the text messages to Heard, as they were presented to the jury last week. Take a look at the video clip of the court trial as the actor talks about their marital relationship and what went wrong in it and why he chose to stay in it.

The actor further denied any claims of physical abuse stating that he had never reached the point of striking Ms. Heard in any way nor has he ever struck any woman in his life. Johnny Depp had earlier a libel suit against Amber Heard over claims of defamation after she called herself a victim of sexual violence in a 2018 op-ed. Depp further denied Heard’s allegations about his drinking and drug abuse and termed that as grossly embellished and plainly false.
Depp also recalled the early days of his relationship with Heard, admitting that he thought she was too good to be true. Johnny Depp also looked at his rough childhood with his mother, Betty Sue Palmer. The actor mentioned how he was rather terrorized by Betty Sue who used to hit him with a belt and even mocked him for having to wear an eye patch which traumatized his young soul.
