Amber Heard Testifies — The Dog Did It
When Amber Heard took the stand Monday she vehemently denied defecating on Johnny Depp’s side of the bed.
Heard pushed back against the claims, citing the bowel control issues their teacup Yorkies has. She claimed that as a puppy, the Yorkie ate Depp’s stash of marijuana, leading to uncontrollable bowel movements. “[Boo] had eaten Johnny’s weed when she was a puppy and had bowel control issues for her entire life,” she testified.
When asked if the poop was a prank, Heard responded: “Absolutely not. Absolutely not. First of all, I don’t think that’s funny. I was not in a pranking mood. My life was falling apart. I had just been attacked on my 30th birthday… it was not really a jovial time and I don’t think that’s funny, period. That’s disgusting.”
Depp recalled the “grotesque” moment that his security guard, Sean Bett, sent him a picture of the feces during his own testimony. He wanted out of the marriage and had asked to retrieve his belongings at their shared residence while Heard was at Coachella, he testified, but Bett advised that it wasn’t a good time to swing by.
Depp testified that he later approached Heard about divorce and brought up the feces. Heard blamed the dog, but Depp didn’t buy it. “They’re teacup Yorkies,” he said. “They weigh about 4 pounds each. The photograph that I saw — I lived with those dogs for many years. It was not the dogs… I didn’t feel like I deserved that kind of treatment.”
