Key Depp 'Scissorhands' memorabilia up for auction after mocked Amber Heard comments
Amber Heard comments on Johnny Depp's threat of 'total global humiliation'

After comments from Amber Heard regarding Johnny Depp and Edward Scissorhands earlier in the week, the bladed glove worn by Depp in the film is now up for auction - where it is expected to sell for up to $50,000.

The mechanical prop was used in the movie's iconic scene when character Edward used his blades to turn an ice angel into a snow flurry for Kim, played by Winona Ryder.

It is described as showing "extensive wear and aging on the foam rubber element", but already three online bids have been placed - the highest at $20,000.

This is the second time Edward Scissorhands has been in the news this week.

After Heard's testimony was called the "the performance of a lifetime," by Depp's lawyer Camille Vasquez, Heard retorted with a snap at Depp's role in the 1990 film.

"Says the lawyer for the man who convinced the world he had scissors for fingers? I'm the performer?" Heard replied.
