Johnny Depp discovered huge financial loss just before alleged birthday party assault

"I observed in December 2015 to my colleagues that Amber was a "thrower", someone who threw projectiles", she said.

Johnny Depp has said he did not intend to headbutt Amber Heard during an alleged heated row between the couple at their Los Angeles penthouse.

"There was one photograph that Miss Heard showed me from Boston", Depp said in the court on Monday, as quoted by the Sun.

Mr Sherborne asked the estate manager whether she was "lying" to protect Mr Depp because she was "worried" about losing her job.

Mr Deuters said he had been attempting to pacify Ms Heard by parroting her version of events.

Mr Sherborne then asked: "Do you remember in the restraining order how far it said you need to keep away from Ms Heard?".

Ms Roberts, who has worked for Mr Depp since December 2008, added that she saw a "red, swelling gash" on his nose, and that he had told her Ms Heard had thrown a can of lacquer thinner into his face.

The libel case arose out of the publication of an article on the Sun's website headlined: "Gone Potty: How can JK Rowling be "genuinely happy" casting wife beater Johnny Depp in the new Fantastic Beasts film?".

Vanessa is set to appear via video link from France this week for her ex partner Depp's libel case against The Sun publisher News Group Newspapers and its executive editor Dan Wootton at London's High Court.

Connolly took Depp out to his vehicle, where the actor said: "She's cut my f-ing finger off".

"She also alleged that general socialisation or moments to discuss "island issues" stopped as Ms Heard would "randomly show up" and that she would "'wiggle' her way" into discussions.

Mr Depp replied: "Certainly not, no".

Mr Depp replied: "Definitely not".

Mr Depp told the court Ms Heard accused him of making her look foolish in front of her friends and had attacked him while he was reading in bed, throwing a wild, swinging punch at him.

Ms Roberts claimed Mr Depp tried to leave, repeatedly asking for the key to a vehicle, which Ms Heard refused to give back, adding it was later found in the couple's house.

She alleged she saw Ms Heard "lunge violently at Johnny, pull his hair, and commit other aggressive physical acts against him".

In the text, Mr Heard also wrote: "But I still love you like a father or brother".

Mr Deuters claimed that, the day after the alleged incident, Mr Depp told him and two others "he had sustained his injury when Ms Heard had thrown a bottle at him which smashed on his hand".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, during his fifth and final day in the witness box, the star said that just before the alleged incident, which occurred after Heard's 30th birthday party in 2016, he had been told that his former business managers had "stolen my money", referring to cash he had mostly made from the Pirates of the Caribbean films. The actor is also suing his ex-wife in a separate case in the United States for allegedly presenting him as an abuser in a Washington Post article.

Depp, 57, denies abusing actress Amber Heard - now 34 and the global face of French cosmetics firm L'Oreal - during a two-year marriage that ended in a messy 2017 divorce and several lawsuits.

Heard is due to start giving evidence on Friday with the trial expected to last three weeks.
