JOHNNY Depp screamed “I’m going to f***ing kill you” at Amber Heard before threatening to “f**k her corpse”, a court heard today.
The actor, 57, allegedly pushed Heard, 34, naked against a bar by her neck during the explosive row where Depp’s finger was severed.

He then repeatedly threatened to kill her as Heard feared for her life, the High Court heard today.
Recalling the alleged horror attack in her witness statement, Heard said: “Glass was broken everywhere, on the floor and the countertop. At some point he pulled me around by my neck and pushed me down against the bar, I was against the bar, naked, bent over backwards, my back against the marble.
The High Court heard today:
- Amber claims Depp ‘explicitly threatened to kill me many times’
- She also said he would threaten to ‘carve’ her face up if she left him
- The star accused Depp of branding her a ‘s**t’ and ‘fame hungry’
- Heard claims the actor ‘demeaned’ her over time
- She also said he was on ‘a huge list of prescribed medications’
- The court was told her weight plummeted and she was ‘scared all the time’
- And Heard claims Depp boasted about knowing people who could break a leg ‘real cheap’
- She also alleges Depp ‘kneeled’ on her back and hit the back of her head in a row in Tokyo over a pre-nup
- Depp allegedly told her when referring to their relationship: ‘The only way out of this is death’.
- Heard also denied claims made by Depp she is a ‘gold-digger’
- And she denied lying about her drug taking and drinking
“He was pressing so hard on my neck I couldn’t breathe. I was trying to tell him that I couldn’t breathe. I remember thinking he was going to kill me in that moment.
“The floor was wet and I was slipping, I couldn’t get a purchase and I was kicking my feet trying to stand up, but nothing was catching.
“I was using my forearms to try to raise myself up and cutting myself on the broken glass on the counter.
The shocking image shows blood splattered on the floor of a bar area in the couple’s swanky pad in Australia in 2015.
“I remember pleading with Johnny saying he was hurting and cutting me and asked him to let me up. He ignored me, continuing to hit me with the back of one closed hand.
“He was screaming at me, over and over again, ‘you ruined my life, I hate you, I’m going to fucking kill you and I’ll fuck your corpse’.
“He said it so loud and over and over: ‘I am going to fucking kill you’. I really thought I might die.”
The row erupted in 2015 in Australia where Depp was filming Pirates of the Caribbean.
The court previously heard how the actor has accused Heard of severing the tip of his finger when she chucked a bottle of vodka at him.
But she claims the digit was sliced off when he smashed a phone against a wall in a drug-fuelled row.

A window has also been smashed and shattered glass can be seen littering the worktops after the couple allegedly caused £80,000 ($100,000) worth of damage in the gruesome bust-up.
Depp has also made a grim reference to desecrating Heard’s corpse in a sickening text to actor Paul Bettany.
Depp joked about burning and drowning Heard when she tried to stop him using drink and drugs.
One text read: “Let’s burn Amber.”

Bettany replies: “I don’t think we should burn her. She’s delightful company and easy on the eye. Also, I’m not sure she’s a witch. We could do a drowning test first. Thoughts? PS: I have a pool.”
Depp continues the shocking rhetoric, adding: “Let’s drown her before we burn her. I will f*** her burnt corpse afterwards to make sure she’s dead.”
Heard is giving evidence today at the high-profile trial and claims Depp attacked her 14 times over three years.
She has previously claimed the Australia trip was a “three-day hostage rage”.
The court was told today how Depp would threaten to “carve” Heard’s face up if she ever left him or hurt him.
Heard also claimed Depp threatened to “kill her many times” during explosive drug-fuelled rows.
The actress, who wore a white blouse and black skirt, is expected to spend three days in the witness box as she goes face-to-face with Depp, 57.

He is suing The Sun for referring to him as a “wife-beater” in a 2018 article. The Sun, supported by Ms Heard, says the term was justified.
Depp is accused of turning his “rage and frustration” on Heard when he “failed to control” his drug and alcohol abuse.
The actor “descended into physically destructive behaviour” – causing him to refer to his “drunken and violent persona as ‘the monster’”, it was said.
But in a series of explosive revelations, Depp has branded Heard’s abuse allegations “complete lies”.
And he called his ex-wife “calculating, sociopathic and emotionally dishonest” as he accused her of “building a dossier” of false allegations as an “insurance policy”.
Depp also accused Heard of pooing in their marital bed after a birthday bust up, which he says was the catalyst for their bitter divorce.
The star also claims Heard severed his finger during a trip to Australia in 2015 by throwing a vodka bottle at him and accused her of repeatedly punching him in the face.
He has brought separate libel proceedings against Heard in the US.
