He Was A Controlling Partner : Johnny Depp’s Ex-Girlfriend, Ellen Barkin Testifies

Published

Ellen Barkin, who dated Johnny Depp in the 1990s, testified that while the two were dating, Depp tried to constantly monitor her.

Depp is suing his ex-wife, Amber Heard, for $50 million after she wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post in 2018 alleging domestic violence. Depp was not named in the article, but his lawyers claim she was referring to him indirectly, and it has harmed his career ever since.

Heard, 35, testified earlier in the trial, describing numerous instances of physical and emotional abuse by Depp, all of which Depp has denied, claiming he was the victim.

“I had a scratch on my back once that got him very, very angry because he insisted it came from me having sex with a person who wasn’t him,” Barkin, now 68, said in the video.

Barkin said Thursday that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor was often using drugs and/or drinking alcohol while they were together, saying it affected their relationship allegations which Heard made in the trial too.

Barkin also claimed that Depp threw a wine bottle at her while they were filming “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” She claimed Depp threw the bottle while fighting with friends in a hotel room.

Barkin claims that her relationship with Depp lasted three to five months and was more sexual than romantic.
