[/tvshowbiz/johnny_depp/index.html Johnny Depp] today claimed Amber Heard taunted him about being a male victim of domestic violence and his severed finger, drank two bottles of wine a night and punished him for breaking her 'rules' as he retakes the High Court stand.
The Hollywood legend was re-examined by his barrister at the High Court in London after days of damaging allegations by his ex-wife Heard that he attacked her on 14 separate occasions in his libel action against The Sun.
He accused the 34-year-old actress of challenging him to 'tell the world' that he lost his finger in a domestic abuse incident and telling him it was a 'fair fight.'
David Sherborne, for Depp, read out alleged texts sent by his former spouse after an explosive row in Australia while he filmed Pirates of the Caribbean 3.
The nightmare fight involved Depp, 57, painting 'I love U' in blood from his severed finger across the walls of his rented mansion.
He maintains that the injury was inflicted by Ms Heard throwing a bottle at him while she claims that it was sustained when he smashed his own phone against a wall.
Reading from messages allegedly sent by Depp to his ex-wife, Mr Sherborne said: 'Amber I lost a f***ing finger man..
Come on man I had a can of spirits thrown at my nose.'
'And then do you see Ms Heard replies. She doesn't deny it,' the lawyer added.
'It was a fair fight... See what the jury and the judge think. Tell the world Johnny...
I, Johnny Depp, a man, I too am a victim of domestic violence,' she allegedly replied.
Depp is suing The Sun for libel after it labelled him a 'wife beater'. He has called the accusation 'utter falsity' and 'fraudulent' and has claimed Heard abused him throughout their marriage.
The hearing continues on Monday before Mr Justice Nicol with evidence from witnesses including Depp's screenwriter Stephen Deuters.
