Depp says lyrics about burning Heard came from ‘Monty Python’

Johnny Depp has said texts he sent to actor Paul Bettany about the burning and drowning of his ex-wife Amber Heard were a joke based on a Monty Python sketch.

The 58-year-old actor told a Virginia court on Monday that he was ashamed of the messages he sent to Bettany but said they were an attempt at “irreverent and abstract humor.”

The $50 million defamation trial has entered its third week as Depp sued Amber for defamation over an article she wrote for the Washington Post in 2018 in which he alleges it falsely implied that he physically and physically abused her have sexually abused.

Johnny said in court he was close friends with Paul Bettany, writing to him in a 2013 text: “Let’s burn Amber.

“Let’s drown them before we burn them. I’ll fuck her burned corpse afterwards to make sure she’s dead.”

Depp said in court he connected with Paul for her “abstract sense of humor” for dealing with sticky situations, and that the comments were never “intended to be real.”

Johnny said: “As these are private texts there was a lot … in context.

“It’s important to realize that none of this was ever meant to be real and the language used that… yes, I’m ashamed (of) how peanut butter needs to be spread around the world.

“For example, the text about the burning of Mrs. Heard is straight from Monty Python and the sketch about the burning of witches and the subsequent drowning of the witches.

“It’s a movie we would all see when we were 10 – it’s just irreverent and abstract humor.”

Johnny said that Paul and Amber’s relationship was “abhorrent” and that she saw him as a “threat” due to the time and proximity of the friendship.

Depp told the court: “Ms Heard despised Mr Bettany mostly because we had become such close friends and he was a threat to her and would take me away from her.”

Johnny has denied all allegations that he ever attacked Amber, saying that reading the Washington Post article was like “being hit in the head with a two by four (stick of wood)”.

He said that Amber would get “mean and loud” when Paul was around, and would often talk over him.

The actor also claimed Amber “humiliated” Paul’s 18-year-old son and made him “burst into tears.”

Depp said he then told Amber “to be wrong sometimes… so she can learn something.”

The process goes on.
