If you are following the news about the trial, there have been some developments regarding the interpretation of the texts presented as evidence in the Depp – Heard Trial.
Text messages as evidence
In 2013 Depp text-messaged his good friend and fellow actor Paul Bettany, they were having a conversation about the struggles of Depp’s marriage to Amber Heard. Throughout them he mentions “Let’s burn her,” “Let’s drown her before we burn her.”
He then continued with “to make sure she is dead”
“Let’s drown her before we burn her. I will f**k her burnt corpse afterward to make sure she’s dead.”
Johnny said he and Paul Bettany had the same “abstract sense of humor” when dealing with difficult situations and there was no intention of those being serious.
He also stated that “As these are private texts there was a lot . . . in context”
“It’s important to know none of that was ever intended to be real and the language used which . . . yes, I am ashamed [of] has to be spread on the world like peanut butter.”
Monthy Python Sketch
Now, these texts are taken directly from the Monty Python sketch about burning witches, and it would take more context to understand the whole intention which is to joke around with a friend, not to be taken seriously.
The Trial in context
If you haven’t, let us give you a little context, back in 2018 the then-wife of Johnny Depp, Amber Heard published an article in the Washington Post where she allegedly had suffered domestic abuse.
Although Depp was not mentioned by name in the article, everything points to him.
Because of this, he is suing Amber for the amount of $50 million, while she is counter-suing for $100 million.
