Amber Heard vs. Johnny Depp: Bodyguard Reports He Was Punched in the Face
Johnny Depp’s bodyguard Travis McGivern testified at Amber Heard’s trial. He tells of night punches and nasty insults.
A bodyguard has unveiled new details in the legal case between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. Depp’s longtime security guard Travis McGivern told the jury in the witness box of the violent arguments between the ex-couple, which he had witnessed. One such argument at Heard’s Los Angeles penthouse resulted in her punching him in the face, said McGivern, who was caught on camera in the courtroom.
The security guard told the court that the ex-couple got into a heated argument on several occasions in March 2015 and that Depp called him late several times to pick him up from Heard’s penthouse. On these occasions, Heard would often try to stop Depp from walking, stop the elevator, or grab Depp’s arm.
Verbal abuse, Red Bull can, punch
Violent insults were apparently common. During one such late-night argument, Heard threw a can of Red Bull at Depp and kicked him in the back. She also spat on him. Depp snatched Heard’s clothes from the closet and threw them on the floor. Both were very upset. McGivern said he tried to protect Depp from physical abuse. At one point, however, he saw a fist in the corner of his eye which shot over his shoulder and hit Depp on the left side of the face. It was Amber Heard’s fist. A red swollen area then developed on Depp’s face and the actor told him it was his fault for not protecting him. McGivern also says he never saw Depp fire back at Heard. He also reported that Depp smoked weed daily and took cocaine “a few times.”
McGivern’s testimony marked the start of the fourth week of trials in the former celebrity couple’s court battle. Last week, Depp’s bodyguard Malcolm Connolly also reported that Depp suffered regular facial injuries during his time with Heard. Unlike McGivern, however, Connolly said he never saw the two use violence against each other.
