On Monday, May 2, Johnny Depp's security guard Travis McGivern made damaging allegations against Amber Heard during his virtual testimony. McGivern met the actress, 36, in 2012, and though he recalled how she and the Edward Scissorhands lead could be "super loving" at times, they would wind up arguing within no time.
McGiverin said the marriage hit a breaking point in 2015, as their fights became a constant occurence. In one incident, he remembered Heard calling Depp a "washed up" actor and a "f**king deadbeat dad" among other hurtful words.
The bodyguard claimed that he too was berated by the Pineapple Express star, who would call him a "yes man."
McGivern spilled details on one incident from March 23, 2015, stating that the mom-of-one physically abused Depp. He and the couple's private nurse, Debbie Lloyd, were called to their Los Angeles apartment around 4 a.m., though they still had a guest over.
The guard alleged that at one point, Heard threw a can of Red Bull that hit Depp, and when she tried to hurl her purse at him, McGivern was able to deflect the bag from hitting the actor.
Depp retaliated by throwing a rack of Heard's clothes down a staircase, which spurred her to punch him in the face, resulting in a "nice little shiner" on his face. McGivern was eventually able to escort the actress out of the home, and he insisted that the Oscar nom never struck her during that fight.
McGivern is just one member of Depp's team to be questioned during the trial, and so far, none of them have recalled him ever abusing his ex-wife. Members of her team have also been involved, though her former personal assistant Kate James aired out her grievances against her.
When she worked for the Aquaman star from 2012 to 2015, James recalled how the actress — whom she called "a very dramatic person" — would often fly into a "blind rage" with "yelling and screaming" over small mistakes. James also alleged that Heard would send her "abusive" text messages.
