Elsewhere in her testimony, Ms Mulroney insisted Mr Depp was “mean” when she was asked to recall her experiences with the father of two.

Mrs Heard, 36, and Mr Depp, 58, tied the knot without a financial agreement, turning preliminary negotiations into post-mortem talks.
On Tuesday, Ms. Heard explained why she didn’t pursue a larger financial settlement in her divorce from her ex-husband.
The final terms of the divorce settlement were agreed in January 2017, with the Pirates of the Caribbean actor required to complete a $7 million payment to his ex-wife over the course of that year.
During the star cross-examination, the court heard details of Depp’s earnings at the time of the split – with Ms Heard’s team alleging that the actress may have charged a high settlement fee.

Mr. Depp is suing his ex-wife, Heard of the US state of Virginia for defamation over an article she wrote for The Washington Post in 2018 in which she claimed she was a victim of abuse family use.
