Johnny Depp 'fond of' using tampon applicator to snort cocaine, Amber Heard's sister claims

July 24, 2020

JOHNNY Depp was 'fond of' using a tampon applicator to snort cocaine, Amber Heard's sister claimed.

Whitney Henriquez took the stand yesterday in the actor's libel case at the High Court and was asked about the shocking photograph showing a tampon applicator and four lines of cocaine on the table.

Amber Heard, 34, took the photo in her LA home in 2013 before the couple allegedly had a massive row over his reported drug and alcohol use.

Eleanor Laws QC, representing Depp, asked Ms Henriquez yesterday about the photograph with the tampon applicator.

Ms Henriquez told the High Court yesterday how Depp was "quite fond" of using the tampon applicator to snort cocaine.

She asked Ms Henriquez what the tampon applicator would be used for, and Ms Henriquez replied: "To get the coke in your nose."

Ms Laws said: "That is what you use to snort cocaine, isn't it?" Ms Henriquez said: "When I did cocaine, yes."

The barrister said Ms Heard, in her evidence, relied on the photograph to show that the "disco bloodbath" had happened on March 22.

The barrister asked Ms Henriquez if the the photo was set up and the sister said: "It is not."

Ms Laws then asked Heard's sister about a text message she sent to Depp, accompanied by a photograph of cocaine and a tampon applicator, and Ms Henriquez said: "I had given him a tampon applicator and he was quite fond of that trick."

The barrister read out the text in court, in which Ms Henriquez said: "Holy S***, this strange stuff came into my possession at work today and I have no clue what it is, maybe I should smell it (to) figure it out."

Ms Henriquez said the text was a joke, following which the barrister suggested again the cocaine photo was a set up.

Heard's sister said she disagreed and confirmed she stuck to her previous account.

Ms Henriquez told the High Court yesterday how Depp allegedly struck her on the arm at Depp's LA penthouse in March 2016.

She revealed how she "felt sick" when she learned Ms Heard was going to marry Depp and "begged" her not to go through with it as it would not stop him "hitting her".

And she claimed how once when she stepped in between Ms Heard and Depp as they rowed on the stairs, the actor allegedly struck her on the arm to reach his ex-wife.

Depp denied shoving and hitting Ms Henriquez and said he did "nothing violent" – but added he "possibly tried to protect myself if that's considered violent".

He allegedly started smashing up the penthouse in LA after Ms Henriquez took her sister away.

Depp 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.

Heard has accused him of 14 violent attacks over three years.

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".

But he has accused her of "building a dossier" of false allegations as an "insurance policy".

He has brought separate libel proceedings against Heard in the US.

Christie row

The couple married in LA in 2015 after meeting on the set of comedy The Rum Diary.

But they divorced two years later after Heard, who donated her £5.5million settlement to charity, accused Depp of abuse.

The case continues.
