Johnny Depp never 'struck any woman'

Actor Johnny Depp took the stand in a Fairfax, Virginia court on Tuesday

In his defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard.

The Oscar-nominated star spoke in detail about Heard's allegations of domestic abuse, his history with substance abuse and their relationship.

In the years prior to its publishing, Heard had alleged Depp bruised her face after throwing a phone at her in their Los Angeles home.

Depp acknowledged in his testimony that he and Heard had arguments during their relationship

But said, "Never did I myself reach the point of striking Ms.

Heard in any way nor have I ever struck any woman in my life."

Depp and Amber met on the set of "The Rum Diary" in 2009, married in 2015

And went on to be embroiled in a contentious split for months, with charges of bad behavior levied by both sides.
