A UK court Friday was shown disturbing photos of actress Amber Heard’s bruised face after Johnny Depp allegedly hurled a phone at her, reports said.
The images were shown during the fourth day of Depp’s explosive London libel trial. He’s suing The Sun over a 2018 article that called him a “wife beater” based on Heard’s allegations, which he has denied.
One of the photos from 2016 shows a makeup-free Heard with red marks around her right eye.
Sasha Wass, the Sun’s lawyer, said Depp was “spoiling for a fight” when he showed up at their LA penthouse in May 2016 to pick up his things, the newspaper reported.
A month earlier, the “Edward Scissorhands” star said he decided to end their marriage after Heard left human poop in their bad as a “prank.”
Wass said Depp became enraged after hearing Heard laugh in front of him about the poop incident with her pal iO Tillet Wright — and allegedly chucked the phone at her face.
Depp, 57, denied the allegation and claimed that Heard started to yell “stop hitting me Johnny” when she was “20 feet away,” the Sun reported.
Heard, 34, used the photos to obtain a restraining order against Depp on May 27, 2016.
The pair divorced in 2017 but have been publicly feuding ever since.
