A pre-recorded deposition from Dr David Kipper was also shown to the jury. Kipper treated Depp for opioid addiction in 2014.
In a message Depp sent Kipper in 2015, the actor appeared to reference his ex-wife, writing: “Hi f**k man had another one. I cannot live like this. She is as full of s**t as a Christmas Goose.
“I’m done. NO MORE!!!! Constant insults released from a malicious evil and vindictive c**t!!!!!
“You know what’s far more hurtful than her venomous and degrading educational ranting??? Her hideously and purposely hurtful tirades and her goddamn shocking treatment of the man she was meant to love above all.”
He continued: “Here’s the real deal mate…her obsession with herself is far more important. She is so f*****g ambitious!!!! She’s so desperate for success and fame. That’s probably why I was acquired, mate. She has hammered me with what a sad old man has been I am.
“I’m so very sad.”
According to Heard’s lawyers, her 2018 article is covered by the first amendment of the US constitution. They also claim there is evidence Depp abused her during their relationship.
