Johnny Depp’s cocaine shown during Amber Heard’s trial


A photo of Johnny Depp’s cocaine stash and a humiliating image of him ‘passed out’ emerged in court on Thursday as lawyers for his ex-wife Amber Heard grilled him over his drinking and drug use.

The Virginia jury saw an image taken in March 2013 showing Depp’s party supplies strewn across a table – along with whiskey, lines of cocaine, wine and even a Keith Richards CD.

The actor admitted that the photo was taken at a time when he had “fallen off the wagon”.

When asked if he often drinks whiskey in the morning, Depp sparked laughter in the courtroom when he replied, “Isn’t happy hour anytime ?”

The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star denied he used to carry cocaine in a small branded box – reading ‘Property of JD’ – which was also spotted on the table.

“But it looks like it would fit,” Depp added.

The defense lawyer noted that evidence from Depp’s previous UK libel trial showed the actor said that was what the box was for.

Depp also testified during cross-examination that he had previously used drugs recreationally with famous friends, including Marilyn Manson and Paul Bettany.

When asked if he had taken cocaine with Manson, Depp replied, “We drank cocaine together maybe a few times.” He then joked, “I once gave Marilyn Manson a pill to stop him talking so much.”

Jurors later saw an embarrassing image Heard took of Depp “passed out” and covered in ice cream on a couch in Boston in 2014.

Depp testified that the photo was taken after he finished working a 17-hour day and took opioids.

He claims Heard gave him the pint of ice cream because she “knew” he would fall asleep, adding, “I wasn’t at the ice cream fest.”

“It was a wonderful photo for her to take,” Depp said on the stand.

When the defense attorney asked if it was Heard’s fault the photo was taken, Depp replied, “Well, she took it.”

Depp had previously disagreed with the defense attorney’s description that he had “passed out”, saying: “Passing out is an interesting way of putting it. Sleeping?”

Lawyers for Heard are trying to derail Depp’s libel lawsuit against his ex-wife after he wrote a 2018 Washington Post opinion piece that Depp claimed defamed him and ruined his lucrative acting career .

Heard accused Depp of domestic violence in the article. But Depp testified that Heard was actually the aggressor in their relationship.

His lawyers have argued that he cannot deny what happened because he was often drunk and drugged to the point of passing out.
