Johnny Depp says he’s ‘obsessed with the truth’ as ​​he testifies in a US trial

Johnny Depp said he was “obsessed with the truth” as he took the stand to testify in his US defamation trial against his former wife Amber Heard.

The actor said in a Virginia courtroom that Ms Heard was making “disgusting and disturbing” allegations against him and that it was “diabolical” that his children had been exposed to them at school.

Mr Depp is suing the Aquaman star for defamation over a 2018 article she wrote in the Washington Post that his attorneys wrongly say physically and sexually abused her.

“It was a total shock … it just didn’t have to go that way because nothing like this had ever happened,” he told the court on Tuesday.

“[In]the relationship there were arguments and things like that, but I myself never got to the point where I hit Ms. Heard in any way, nor have I ever hit a woman in my life.”

Mr Depp said at the time the allegations had “permeated” the entertainment industry and become “citation, unquoted fact”.

“It’s been six years of difficult times, very strange when one day you’re sort of Cinderella and then in 0.6 seconds you’re Quasimodo,” he said

“I didn’t deserve that, neither did my children and the people who believed in me over the years.

“I pride myself on honesty… on truth. Truth is the only thing that interests me.

“Lies get you nowhere, and lies build on lies… I’m obsessed with the truth, so today is the first opportunity that I’m able to speak fully on this case.”

The actor, who wore a dark suit and light paisley tie, said the case would be “revealing” for both him and Ms Heard.

“It never had to go in that direction,” he said.

“I can’t say I’m embarrassed because I know I’m doing the right thing.”

The trial in Fairfax County Circuit Court continues.
