During the former couple's multimillion-dollar defamation litigation, an audio recording of Amber Heard calling Johnny Depp "Junkie Johnny" was played in court. Depp appeared to scoff as the recording was played.

Monday marked the third day of Ms. Heard's evidence as the trial began after a one-week break.

She said to the court that she would encounter "different versions" of Mr. Depp and that it would be a "juggling act" to determine which version she would receive.

In an audio recording played in court, Ms. Heard states, "Then I get different versions of him." I always perceive the insecure or fearful side of him, who lashes out differently.

Therefore, if it is Adderall or Junkie Johnny, he is abusive, a tyrant, and cruel.

Mr. Depp, who had his head bowed and was taking notes at the moment, was observed grinning and laughing at the reference to "Junkie Johnny."

Ms. Heard maintained in the audio recording that this version of her ex-spouse would result in "violence or anger."

She says, "If I argue back with him, I'm abusive; if I don't say anything, I'm dismissive; if I engage with him, I'm part of the problem."

She continues, "I'm screwed no matter what I do."

Ms. Heard told the court that the recording represented her attempting to explain to Mr. Depp the "uselessness" of negotiating with him while under the influence of narcotics.

"No matter what I did, no matter what I did to desecsapelet to walk away, nothing I did change his rage at me, nothing I did change the violence towards me, and nothing I did calmed him down," stated.

And I was constantly juggling the various versions of Johnny that I had to deal with.

Mr. Depp is suing his ex-wife for defamation based on an opinion piece she wrote for The Washington Post in 2018 in which she referred to herself as "a public figure representing domestic abuse."

Pirates of the Caribbean are not mentioned in the article titled "I spoke out against sexual violence – and faced our culture's wrath." This must change."

However, Mr. Depp asserts that it wrongly indicates that he is a domestic abuser, which he vehemently rejects. It has made it difficult for him to secure employment in Hollywood, and hed he is seeking $50 million.

Ms. Heard is filing a $100 million countersuit against Mr. Depp, accusing him of orchestrating a "smear campaign" against her and labeling his case as a continuation of "abuse and harassment."

On April 11 in Fairfax, Virginia, the trial opened with bombshell testimony.
