Johnny Depp and his bodyguard are close – but apparently not that conclude.
As the trial of Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard began on Friday, the trial took an amusing turn when Malcolm Connolly, the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s security agent, was asked if he had ever seen his employer’s penis.
“I think I would remember if I had seen Mr. Depp’s penis,” Connelly said – prompting a burst of giggles from Depp and others in the Fairfax, Virginia courtroom.
Connelly’s quip came in response to Heard’s lawyer, who asked if the confidant could describe his anatomy – according to previous testimonies, the actor had been caught urinating in the foyer of the embattled ex-lovers’ home.
The awkward question relates to the couple’s well-reported trip to Australia in 2015, which earlier testimonies also claimed Depp’s finger was severed in a heated argument that Connelly, a former prison guard, described as a “mess.”
Addressing the court via Zoom, Connelly also characterized the couple as once “lovey-dovey” and called Heard “lovable, charming.”
However, that all changed around the time of the move Down Under, according to Connelly, confirming that Heard called Depp a “coward” when she bandaged his finger.
Depp, 58, is suing Heard, 36, with a $50 million defamation lawsuit over a 2018 op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post about domestic violence.
