Its been several weeks since the hearing began for the libel case brought by Johnny Depp against The Sun newspaper, its publisher NGN and executive editor Dan Wootton, over an online story from April 2018 which described him as a “wife-beater”. In the recent hearing, the Hollywood actor’s security guard revealed that Depp has suffered more bullying at the hands of his wife, Amber Heard.
The High Court in London has been told that Heard would regularly pelt Johnny Depp with objects, including a fork, a cigarette lighter, a can of Coke and others. Malcolm Connolly has been Depp’s security guard for over 16 years and said that he has never witnessed or seen any of the injuries that Heard claims Depp inflicted on her.
Malcolm Connolly is a former prison officer at Pentonville jail in the UK and said he had “seen it in prison” that “the usual victim pattern is to protect the abuser for some reason, you know the psychological bullying… they fit the same criteria, they never come forward with the information.”
Talking about the aftermath of an incident when Depp claimed that Heard severed his finger with a vodka bottle in Australia, in March 2015, Connolly revealed, she appeared at the door of their house “screaming and crying”.
