TMZ said Monday, August 15, that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, 53, sliced off the tip of his middle finger during an argument with the Justice League actress, 30, at a villa in Australia in March 2015.
The Alice Through the Looking Glass star allegedly smashed multiple glass bottles and windows, in addition to slamming a landline phone against the wall. In the midst of Depp’s anger, he allegedly cut off a portion of his finger.
TMZ claims Depp then dipped his bloody finger in a can of blue paint and used it to write “Billy Bob” and “Easy Amber” on a mirror inside the bathroom of the Australian villa.
At the time of the incident, Heard was working on a since-unreleased film titled London Fields with actor Billy Bob Thornton. According to TMZ, Heard claims Depp falsely accused her of cheating on him with Thornton, now 61, which allegedly kicked off the alarming fight.
Last week, TMZ posted a video of the actor, filmed by his estranged wife, slamming kitchen cabinets and throwing a wineglass and bottle. The Danish Girl actress later told Us Weekly in a statement that she was “not responsible for the release of the video.”
Heard has repeatedly accused Depp of being verbally and physically abusive throughout their four-year relationship since she filed for divorce in May. She was later granted a temporary restraining order against the actor, whose lawyer has since denied Heard’s allegations.
Us Weekly has reached out to Depp's and Heard’s reps for comment.
