A video has recently leaked via DailyMail.com showing Johnny Depp describing a physical fight he had with ex-wife, Amber Heard, that resulted in his losing a portion of his finger.

While the deposition was actually a part of his already settled case against his lawyer of 18 years, Jake Bloom, it's just another example of the bevy of evidence coming out to support Depp's claims that Heard made up allegations against Depp.

In 2016, after filing for divorce, Heard claimed that Depp had been physically and verbally abusive to her. The end of their marriage was legally finalized in January 2017, but, in 2018, Heard wrote an op-ed piece for the Washington Post once again accusing Depp of severe abuse. This led Depp to file a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard, which includes claims that Heard began having an affair with Elon Musk just a month after marrying Depp.

Is “Hamilton” Sexist?

The hit musical will drop on Disney+ July 3rd.

Lin Manuel-Miranda's Hamilton has taken the theater world by storm since its 2015 Broadway premiere.

A hip-hop musical about America's founding fathers doesn't sound immediately appealing, but Manuel-Miranda's brilliant song writing and diverse casting not only captured the attention of audiences, but proved that major change is possible within an art form as encumbered by traditions as musical theater.

It seems the saga of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's toxic marriage will never end.

Recently, images were leaked that seemed to indicate that Heard was having an affair with Tesla CEO Elon Musk shortly after marrying Depp in 2015. Depp accused Heard of infidelity as a part of his $50 million dollar defamation case against her, and he also subpoenaed Musk for his text messages with Heard. This follows accusations from both Heard and Depp that the other was habitually abusive.

Now, more evidence has emerged in the form of a video of Depp detailing a March 2015 incident in which Heard threw a broken vodka bottle at Depp, consequentially severing off a portion of his finger. The videoed deposition is from 2018 and details a fight that erupted when Depp brought up post-nuptial papers to sign.

Heard's account of events differs dramatically. She claims the fight was over her former co-star Billy Bob Thornton. According to Heard, Depp hit her with one hand, while "slamming a hard plastic phone against a wall with his other until it was smashed into smithereens. While he was smashing the phone, Johnny severely injured his finger, cutting off the tip of it." According to Vanity Fair, Heard also claimed, "At some point later that night, Depp had written on the walls with a mixture of paint and the bloody finger, 'Billy Bob' and 'Easy Amber.'" Depp denies this version of events.

Bizarrely, this new video is not a part of Depp's case against Heard but from a lawsuit against Depp's former lawyer, Jake Bloom. Depp filed the suit against the lawyer on the grounds that Bloom collected $30 million during their 18 years working together. A settlement was reached, but Bloom reportedly only paid a portion of the amount Depp asked. According to the Daily Mail, the finger incident was brought up in the deposition because Bloom drew up the post-nup that Depp claims caused Heard to physically assault him, resulting in the loss of his finger.
