Amber Heard told the High Court in London Depp refused to leave her house to direct the film about the Rolling Stones legend until she admitted to having two affairs.
Johnny Depp was on a 24-hour cocaine and whisky “bender” before going to the set of a Keith Richards documentary, Amber Heard told the High Court in London as she finished giving evidence in her ex-husband’s libel case against The Sun.
The Aquaman actress, 34, said Mr Depp, 57, refused to leave her house in March 2013 when he was supposed to be on the set of a documentary on The Rolling Stones’ guitarist that he was directing until she admitted to having two affairs – both of which she denies.
Depp is suing Dan Wootton, the British tabloid’s executive editor, and its publisher News Group Newspapers (NGN) over a 2018 article that referred to him as a “wife-beater” in relation to allegations made by his ex-wife Amber Heard – claims he has denied.
According to U.K. newspaper The Times, in a witness statement submitted as part of a remote hearing at Britain’s High Court on Wednesday, Paradis, who shares two children with the Pirates of the Caribbean star, said he had never been abusive towards her.
“I have known Johnny for more than 25 years. We’ve been partners for 14 years and we raised our two children together,” her submission states. “Through all these years I’ve known Johnny to be a kind, attentive, generous and non-violent person and father…he was never violent or abusive to me.”
Ryder, who dated Depp in the 1990s, claimed in her own statement: “I cannot wrap my head around (the) accusations. He was never, never violent towards me. He was never, never abusive at all towards me.”
Ben who lives in West Dorset, said he first met Ronnie when they worked together on a tribute album to The Rolling Stones’ former pianist Ian Stewart around six years ago.
“Ronnie is brilliant to work with. He makes a song sound like a record after just one take. I bumped into Ronnie and his wife Sally who I’ve known for years in Prague recently and we talked about putting together a tribute to Chuck Berry.
“Ronnie said he was a lifelong fan and that he knew every single Chuck Berry song so he was keen to get involved and it went from there. I expect he will be performing some of the more obscure Chuck Berry numbers too.
