ELLEN BARKIN TESTIFIES THURSDAY IN JOHNNY DEPP DEFAMATION TRIAL AGAINST AMBER HEARD
Barkin, 68, testified on behalf of Depp’s ex-wife, Amber Heard, and didn’t mince words in the 11-minute clip of his deposition taken in November 2019.
“He’s just a jealous, controlling man,” she said. “‘Where are you going? Who are you going with? What did you do last night?’ Once I had a scratch on my back which made him very angry, very angry, because he insisted that it was because I slept with someone who didn’t wasn’t him.”

Barkin, who garnered his own share of negative headlines, said his friendship with Depp, 58, turned sexual in the 90s, but the relationship didn’t last longer than six months.
“After I moved to Hollywood, he changed the buttons,” she said of the change. “Friendship went from purely platonic to romantic.”
The actress said she visited Depp several times a week and there was often an assistant he called “the pig”.
Depp broke up with her during a two-day visit to Los Angeles. We did not know where they were at the time.

“I went home. There was a big goodbye, crying, a lot of jealousy and don’t do this, don’t do that, and I never heard from him again after that,” testified Barkins.
Depp and Barkin appeared together in the 1998 film “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.”
“Did there come a time when Mr. Depp acted in a way that was out of control with you?” asked Heard’s attorney.
“Mr. Depp threw a bottle of wine in the hotel room in Las Vegas while we were filming,” she said. “A fight was going on…between Johnny Depp and his friend in the room, the assistant. Honestly, I don’t remember.
Depp allegedly threw the bottle in his direction, and it hit a wall, Barkin testified.
The ‘Ocean’s Thirteen’ actress said Depp was always drinking red wine or smoking a joint. He also took hallucinogens and cocaine.
