During Johnny Depp’s ongoing defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard, Depp’s security guard testified that Heard had once told him that she defecated in her and Depp’s bed as a “practical joke.”
Testifying in court on Thursday, April 28, Starling Jenkins III relayed the conversation he had had with Amber Heard. Jenkins is Johnny Depp’s executive chauffer and security guard, having worked for the Pirates of the Caribbean star since 1993. He addressed the court via a live video call and relayed details of a conversation with Aquaman star Heard in which she spoke about the defecation incident, which had been brought up by Depp earlier in the trial.
In his testimony, Jenkins said that he had spoken to Amber Heard while driving her to Coachella in 2016. Jenkins said that he and Heard “had a conversation pertaining to the surprise she left in [Johnny Depp]’s bed,” following an alleged fight between her and Depp. Jenkins clarified that “the surprise” was “the defecation” and said that Heard referred to it as “a horrible practical joke gone wrong.”
Talking about the incident himself earlier on in the trial, Johnny Depp had said that he was considering going back to his shared house with Amber Heard while she was away at Coachella. Recalling a conversation with security guard Sean Bett, Depp said Bett “showed me a photograph on his telephone of … it was a photograph of our bed, and on my side of the bed, was human fecal matter.”
The defamation trial is being broadcast live on Court TV. The trial is also being live-streamed on Court TV’s website, though it is not available on any other online or streaming platforms. The trial is taking place in Fairfax, Virginia, and is expected to last several weeks.
