During the defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard different Hollywood actors have testified, this time Ellen Barkin testified about her relationship with Depp.
The actress’ statement was recorded in November 2019, where she stated that “Simply, make a friendship with them over time that lasted perhaps ten years or a little less.”
When Barkin was asked if at any time the actor was ‘out of control’ the woman spoke of an occasion where allegedly in the middle of an argument with several friends she threw a bottle of wine inside a hotel room in Las Vegas. The bottle was thrown in his direction but did not hit any of those present.
“I was always aware that Depp drank excessively, he was drunk a lot of the time. He is a jealous and controlling man, I wondered: Where are you going? Who are you going with? What did you do last night?” the actress said.
Ellen said she once had a scratch on her back, which made Depp jealous, who was “very angry” and insisted he was sleeping with someone else.
The actress’ testimony ended when she said Depp never physically assaulted her, but he was verbally abusive and had bouts of violence.
Relationship between Ellen Barkin and Johnny Depp
Barkin’s friendship with Depp began in 1990, years later they starred together in the film ‘Fear and Disgust in Las Vegas, released in 1998.
Depp called Barkin’s testimony false and said she gave him a “grudge” for not wanting to continue their relationship.
“With Barkin, it started a sexual issue that lasted for months intermittently because we were working on the movie ‘Fear and Disgust in Las Vegas,'” Depp said.
“She wanted a formal relationship and I didn’t want that. I didn’t feel the same way about her as I did about me, I guess from that moment on she got pretty angry and I haven’t spoken to Barkin since, “added the actor.
