Johnny Depp suffers from ere*ctile dysfunction, attorneys for Amber Heard claimed in newly unsealed court documents.
The actress’ legal team argued in a March 28 filing, obtained by Page Six, that the purported medical malady may have contributed to her ex-husband’s allegedly violent behavior.
“Though Mr. Depp would rather not disclose his erectile dysfunction condition, such condition absolutely is relevant to se*xual vio*lence, including Mr. Depp’s anger and use of a bottle to ra*pe Amber Heard,” the documents alleged.
Depp has consistently denied Heard’s allegations of ra*pe and vio*lence.
Heard’s lawyers went on to claim that Depp’s supposed pen*ile problem would make it “more probable” that he would become “an*gry or agitated” in encounters with the “Aquaman” star and cause him to “resort to a bottle.”
In May, Heard, 36, broke down in tears during the former couple’s defamation trial as she testified that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, 59, allegedly ra*ped her with a liquor bottle and thr*eatened to “carve up” her face with it during a March 2015 altercation.
“I didn’t know if the bottle he had inside me was broken,” she said, breathing heavily as she held back tears. “I couldn’t feel it. I couldn’t feel anything.”
According to the court docs, the alleged incident occurred in Australia during the same fig*ht that left Depp with a severed finger — something he claimed on the stand happened when Heard flung a vod*ka bottle at him. The two had only gotten married a month earlier.
During a cross-examination, Depp’s attorney grilled Heard about the alleged se*xual as**sault, for which the “Justice League” star admitted she did not seek medical attention.
“As I have always said, I don’t remember exactly what happened first, or the sequence,” she said.
The unsealed documents also revealed text message exchanges between Depp and Marilyn Manson — who similarly has been accused of and denied sexual abuse — as well as the “Edward Scissorhands” star’s attempt to bring up his ex-wife’s “brief stint as an ex*otic dancer” at trial.
The jury ultimately awarded Depp $15 million over claims he was defamed by a 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which Heard made allegations of se*xual vi*olence. She was awarded $2 million over her claims that Depp’s lawyer had made false and damaging comments about her.
Depp’s team did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment on the erectile dy*sfunction allegation.
