Jennifer Grey, the ex-girlfriend of Johnny Depp, expressed how 'heartbreaking' the defamation trial with Amber Heard is, stating that it 'breaks her heart.'
Heard, who was married to Depp from 2015 to 2017, appeared to tremble when she met face-to-face with him following her emotional testimony, as captured in new footage from the trial.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor sues his ex-wife for libel and claims $50 million (£39 million) in damages after she penned an article for the Washington Post implying he was sexually and physically abusive during their marriage but not naming him. He has refuted the charges.
Grey began romantically linked with Depp, to whom she was briefly engaged, in the late 1990s, shortly after her romance with her Ferris Bueller's Day Off co-star Matthew Broderick ended.
She stated to Entertainment Tonight regarding the ongoing Depp and Heard trial, "All I can say is that it breaks my heart for everyone involved."
The 62-year-old continued, 'I just find it sad, I wish it were resolved, and I wish everyone the best.'
Grey, who is now promoting her novel Out of the Corner, reportedly recalled Depp's 'crazy possessive and paranoid' behavior throughout their relationship when he demanded to know what she had been doing while he was away.
She stated in The Independent, "I attributed his bad temper and unhappiness to his feeling miserable and powerless to leave 21 Jump Street."
Metro.co.uk has reached out to the representatives of Depp for comment.
Grey described it as when she and Depp became romantically associated for the first time, which occurred after she and Broderick were engaged in a deadly vehicle accident.
Broderick was driving the vehicle in Ireland when it collided with two women, resulting in their deaths. Soon later, he and Grey dissolved their relationship.
She remarked about Depp, "This man was the solution to all of my problems." This gentleman was charming, loving, romantic, obsessed with me, and physically attractive.
I was in desperate need of something that looked and felt like Johnny Depp in 1989.
She said it was a 'very gentle landing' and 'necessary,' claiming, 'I was bleeding out from the inside and he saved me by making me... not feel what I was feeling.'
