LOS ANGELES — The messy divorce between Hollywood megastar Johnny Depp and his lesser-known actress wife Amber Heard took a gruesome turn this week.
According to TMZ, Heard claims the two were arguing while they were in Australia last March during production of the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
She says Depp was drunk during the encounter and high on ecstasy. Depp allegedly smashed bottles, windows and even a phone during the argument. Heard claims one of the items severed part of Depp’s middle finger.
Next, TMZ reports that Heard says he used the finger to paint the words “Billy Bob” and “Easy Amber” on a mirror. Heard reportedly claims Depp thought she was banging actor Billy Bob Thornton, an accusation she denies.
Heard also alleges that Depp got violent with her on May 21 last year, an accusation that Depp denies.
The two have nearly settled their divorce for $8 million, but disagreements over a joint statement concerning the allegation of domestic violence has put proceedings at a stalemate, reported TMZ.
