Johnny Depp ‘Joked’ With ‘Avengers’ Star Paul Bettany He’d Set Amber Heard On Fire

The new texts reveal a shocking exchange between the two actors.

New texts raised in the libel trial showed Fantastic Beasts Star Johnny Depp “joking” with Avengers star Paul Bettany about setting Amber Heard on fire.

As Johnny Depp’s libel trial against The Sun for branding him a “wife-beater” continues, he was cross examined by The Sun’s lawyer about a number of messages he exchanged with Avengers star Paul Bettany. According to the Daily Mail, the new messages saw the pair joking about setting Amber Heard on fire and drowning her. The shocking chain of messages also saw Depp claim what he would do after they’d burnt his ex-wife. When asked by QC Sasha Wass if this was a respectful way of talking about his ex-wife, Depp admitted it wasn’t.

When asked about the shocking messages that referred to Amber Heard as a “witch,” Johnny Depp explained that he was resentful over his ex-wife’s alleged abusive behavior as she insulted his use of alcohol. He also explained that Avengers star Paul Bettany knew of the situation between the two and that Heard didn’t like the Marvel actor. Depp admitted that his “sense of humor is slightly skewed.” Take a look at the alleged messages between Depp and Bettany below.

Bettany: “I’m not sure we should burn Amber. She is delightful company and pleasing on the eye. We could of course do the English course of action and perform a drowning test. Thoughts? You have a swimming pool.”

Depp: “Let’s drown her before we burn her!!! I will f*** her burnt corpse afterwards to make sure she’s dead.”

Bettany: “My thoughts entirely. Let’s be certain before we pronounce her a witch.”
