JOHNNY Depp told Amber Heard he could "crush" her neck and hid raw meat in her nightgown during a three-day "hostage situation", a court heard today.
The actress described the explosive drug-fuelled row in Australia in 2015 as the "worst thing I have ever been through".
She told the High Court how Depp attacked her while she was naked as he screamed at her and made "nonsensical accusations".
Heard, 34, also claimed Depp urinated in front of stunned onlookers as he tried to spell her name in wee and hid steak in her nightgown.
Depp even chopped her clothes up and dumped them in the bathtub before smearing them with paint as Heard feared for her life, it was said.
The High Court heard today:
- Amber claims Depp 'explicitly threatened to kill me many times'
- She also said he would threaten to 'carve' her face up if she left him
- The star accused Depp of branding her a 's**t' and 'fame hungry'
- She claimed he tried to 'crush' her neck and stuffed raw meat in her nightgown in Australia
- Heard claims the actor 'demeaned' her over time
- She also said he was on 'a huge list of prescribed medications'
- The court was told her weight plummeted and she was 'scared all the time'
- And Heard claims Depp boasted about knowing people who could break a leg 'real cheap'
- Depp also allegedly threatened to get some 'black brothers' to rape Heard
- She also alleges Depp 'knelt' on her back and hit the back of her head in a row in Tokyo over a pre-nup
- Heard revealed she never felt more lonely than she did on her wedding night
- Depp allegedly told her when referring to their relationship: 'The only way out of this is death'.
- Heard also denied claims made by Depp she is a 'gold-digger'
- And she denied lying about her drug taking and drinking
Heard said today: "There were pieces of it wrapped round something and I realised it was the steak I had planned to cook.
"He had ripped the gown into pieces and put raw meat in it. He had also gone around and painted on all my clothes in the closet.
"He had taken a lot out of them and put them in the tub and smeared paint on them.
"And he had hidden more bits of raw meat in places, like in the bedroom closet. It was really messed up,"
The couple had travelled to Australia where Depp was filming Pirates of the Caribbean.
They were due to spend three days alone but Heard said she realised she was "trapped" in the remote home with Depp, who had allegedly been taking drugs.
Recalling the alleged attack, she said: "The best way I can describe what happened in Australia is that it was like a three-day hostage situation.
"I was in a remote house, at least 20 minutes from help; where I could not leave; was trapped and isolated with a violent person suffering from manic depression, bipolar disorder and a pattern of repeated, drug-induced psychosis and violence, who was on a multiple-day drug and alcohol binge.
"Over the course of those three days, there were extreme acts of psychological, physical, emotional and other forms of violence.
"It is the worst thing I have ever been through. I was left with an injured lip and nose and cuts on my arms."
Heard claimed Depp grabbed her by the neck, shoved her against the fridge and said he could "crush" her neck.
He then ripped her nightgown off so she was naked and shoved her against a bar as he had "strange, paranoid hallucinations", the court heard.
Heard added: "At some point he pulled me around by my neck and pushed me down against the bar, I was against the bar, naked, bent over backwards, my back against the marble. He was pressing so hard on my neck I couldn't breathe. I was trying to tell him that I couldn't breathe.
"I remember thinking he was going to kill me in that moment."
The court previously heard how the actor has accused Heard of severing the tip of his finger when she chucked a bottle of vodka at him.
But she claims the digit was sliced off when he smashed a phone against a wall in a drug-fuelled row.
A photo shown of the grisly scene after the bust-up shows blood splattered on the floor of a bar area in the couple's swanky pad.
A window has also been smashed and shattered glass can be seen littering the worktops after the couple allegedly caused £80,000 ($100,000) worth of damage in the gruesome bust-up.
Heard today also recalled how Depp tried to write Heard's name in urine during the bender.
She said Depp took out his privates as he was being escorted out of the trashed property by security, saying: “I need to take a f***ing piss, it’s my house."
Heard said: “He then went back inside and did it right in front of them to nervous laughter.
"He said was he was trying to write my name on the walls and carpet while peeing in the house."
The court was told today how after they married, Depp told Heard the only way out of their marriage "was death".
And she accused Depp of threatening to "carve" her face up if she ever left him or hurt him.
Heard also claimed Depp threatened to "kill her many times" during explosive drug-fuelled rows.
She said: "He explicitly threatened to kill me many times. He would blame all his actions on a self-created third person, which he often called The Monster.
“He talked about our relationship being ‘dead or alive’ and told me that death was the only way out of the relationship.
“He described what he wanted to do to me if I left him or hurt him, for example, carving my face up so no one else would want me.
“He also said what he would do to others he didn’t like or was threatened by, detailing how he wanted to have someone tortured or how cheap and easy it would be to have someone knocked off."
The actress, who wore a white blouse and black skirt, is expected to spend three days in the witness box as she goes face-to-face with Depp, 57.
Depp gave evidence for five days at the start of the three-week trial.
He is suing The Sun for referring to him as a "wife-beater" in a 2018 article. The Sun, supported by Ms Heard, says the term was justified.
Shocking details of the couple's tumultuous marriage were played out to the court as he took to the stand – including claims she or a pal pooed in their marital bed after the birthday row.
A glimpse into Depp's wild Hollywood lifestyle was also revealed – including him admitting he drunk a pint of wine for breakfast and started taking drugs aged just 11.
Depp is accused of turning his "rage and frustration" on Heard when he "failed to control" his drug and alcohol abuse.
The actor "descended into physically destructive behaviour" – causing him to refer to his "drunken and violent persona as 'the monster'", it was said.
But in a series of explosive revelations, Depp has branded Heard's abuse allegations "complete lies".
And he called his ex-wife “calculating, sociopathic and emotionally dishonest” as he accused her of "building a dossier" of false allegations as an "insurance policy".
Depp also accused Heard of pooing in their marital bed after a birthday bust up, which he says was the catalyst for their bitter divorce.
The star also claims Heard severed his finger during a trip to Australia in 2015 by throwing a vodka bottle at him and accused her of repeatedly punching him in the face.
He has brought separate libel proceedings against Heard in the US.
The couple married in LA in 2015 after meeting on the set of comedy The Rum Diary.
But they divorced two years later after Heard, who donated her £5.5million settlement to charity, accused Depp of abuse.
The case continues.
