Johnny Depp has denied he slapped his ex Amber Heard after she chuckled at one of his tattoos, as he showed up at a conference at London’s High Court.
Mr Depp, 57, is suing the distributer of the Sun paper over an article that alluded to him as a “tank top”.
Giving proof, Mr Depp concurred he had “tumbled off the cart” at the hour of the supposed occurrence yet said it was “plainly false” he had hit Ms Heard.
The Sun has guarded the exactness of the 2018 article.
It had alluded to “overpowering proof” that Mr Depp assaulted Ms Heard, 34, during their relationship – which he arduously denies.
The on-screen character’s activity is against the distributer of the Sun – News Group Newspapers (NGN) – and official editorial manager Dan Wootton.

Ms Heard cases that Mr Depp first hit her in mid 2013 – one of 14 separate charges of abusive behavior at home, all denied by Mr Depp, which are being depended on by NGN with all due respect.
NGN’s legal counselor Sasha Wass QC got some information about a supposed occurrence in March 2013 including Mr Depp’s tattoo which peruses “Wino Forever”.
It had initially said “Winona Forever” concerning his relationship with on-screen character Winona Ryder, yet he had transformed it when they split in 1993.
Ms Wass said Ms Heard had made a joke out of the tattoo when he was drinking vigorously after around 160 days of balance.
Mr Depp answered: “I don’t remember any discussion.”
Ms Wass said the on-screen character at that point smacked his ex over the face. She included: “You slapped her more than once, in light of the fact that after you slapped her the first occasion when, she didn’t respond, she just eyeballed you, she just gazed at you, and that drove you increasingly mad and you slapped her once more.”
Mr Depp replied: “That is plainly false.” When he was told he had slapped he multiple times altogether, Mr Depp stated: “I’m unfortunately that isn’t correct, you are mixed up.”
The advodate then put it to Mr Depp that he “separated” subsequent to waking up and acknowledging what he had done, to which he stated: “I didn’t hit Ms Heard.”
The second day of Mr Depp’s interrogation had started with the on-screen character being asked whether he was taking cocaine in March 2013.
Mr Depp answered that it was “hard to remember whether I was taking cocaine in March 2013… it’s conceivable”.
