Johnny Depp joked that he’d named his injured finger ‘Little Richard’.
Actor Johnny Depp has said that his finger erupted like Vesuvius after his ex-wife, Amber Heard, allegedly sliced it off during a violent altercation.
Depp made the statements in a deposition for a now closed case between the actor and his former business associate.
Video footage obtained by Daily Mail shows Depp saying, "I was trying to get the finger back, you know. And then deal with the insanity of having had my finger chopped off by this woman that I was married to." He joked that he'd named his injured finger 'Little Richard'.
The incident allegedly took place a month after the couple tied the knot, while Depp was filming the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie in Australia.
