Johnny Depp was back in witness box Wednesday morning to answer questions for a second time.

Wearing a gray suit, blue shirt and dark yellow pattern tie, Depp was called back by his own lawyers as he sat drinking from a large metal cup full of coffee.

He denied having seen any of the statements made by his lawyer Adam Waldman calling Heard's claims a 'hoax' before they were published. Depp said that the first he became aware of them was August 2020 when Heard countersued him for $100million.

Jessica Meyers, one of Depp's lawyers, took him through each of the statements from Spring 2020 which Waldman made.

They said things like Heard's claims were a 'hoax', that it was an 'abuse hoax' and that Heard and her friends staged a crime scene after the former couple's last fight in May 2016.

Depp said that when he was first made aware of the statements he didn't know 'where they'd come from. It just seemed like a lot of word salad to me.'

Depp claimed that he did help Heard get the role of Mera in Aquaman, the role which made her a star.

He said: 'After Miss Heard's audition or auditions for Warner Bros, the creative team, Miss Heard expressed to me that the film was going to be shooting in Australia and Australia for Miss Heard was a potential problem.

'That was of concern to her, it was of concern to Warner Bros. She asked if I would - I'd had a multi-film deal with Warner Bros for a few years so we'd been in business together so I knew these people, I'd been on films with them.

'She asked me if I would speak to them. I made a phone call and I spoke to three upper echelon Warner executives', reeling off their names.

Depp added: 'Ultimately she did get the job in the film, so hopefully I suppose I'd curbed their worries to some degree.'

Depp was asked about Heard's claims that he took 8-10 MDMA pills during what she claimed was a 'three day hostage situation'. Asked how many times he has done MDMA in his life, he said: 'Actually not that many times. In my lifetime MDMA six, seven maybe'. At this Heard could be seen smirking

The questioning turned to the incident in Australia in March 2015 when Depp's fingertip got sliced off during a violent row with Heard.

He claims she sliced it off by throwing a vodka bottle at him. Heard says Depp smashed it off with a phone.

Asked how much MDMA he had taken during the Australia incident, Depp said, 'Not enough to properly, well, to experience what the chemicals are supposed to do to you.'

Meyers asked Depp: 'Have you ever consumed 8-10 MDMA pills at once?'

With a smile Depp said: 'No ma'am I have not. Because I'd be dead. I think one would die. Probably rather quickly.' 

The court was shown photos of the aftermath of the fight where Depp's fingertip was sliced off and the bar area where the row happened.

Depp drew on the picture and put out his hand on the bar to show where he was sitting and where Heard was standing when she threw one vodka bottle which missed him, and a second which hit his hand.

H said: 'My arm was leaning on the marble bar, (I'm) leaning and being back and looking gat Miss Heard.

'She walked away with the second bottle. She walked this way when she threw the first bottle which is visible on the floor'.

Depp pointed to glass fragments on the floor in a photo and said: 'All that is the exploded first bottle. It went past my head. The second bottle hit right up here where my hand was resting on the marble bar.'

Depp said that another photo of blood spots was from his bleeding finger.

Depp was asked about a text he sent to his personal doctor, David Kipper, after the fight in which he said Heard was as 'full of s**t as a Christmas Goose.'

According to Depp he was 'telling him I'd had it and just lost a fingertip.'

Asked how he could text given he'd just lost a finger tip, Depp held up his hand and said: 'He (right middle finger) wasn't available at the time so thumb your way through it.' 

Depp said: 'The first thing he wanted to do was inspect the damage to my finger.

'There would be no point in lying to the man. He'd been through it with me and Miss Heard before. I told him she'd thrown a bottle of vodka and cut my finger off, the tip of my finger. A good chunk. And I miss it'.

Kate Moss told Johnny Depp's $100million defamation trial that he never pushed her down the stairs. 

Moss, appearing briefly via live video from Gloucestershire, England, said that while on vacation in Jamaica she slipped and Depp came to her aid. 

Moss said that throughout the court of their relationship (1994-1998), 'He never pushed me, kicked me or threw me down any stairs.' 

The famously-private model, who rarely discusses her personal life, shut down Heard's claim the 58-year-old pushed Moss. 

Heard opened the door to Moss' testimony by claiming she feared Depp would push her sister down the stairs during a violent argument. According to Heard, there was a rumor that Depp had once done the same thing to Moss and it came to her mind.

Questioned by Depp's attorney Benjamin Chew, Moss said, 'We were leaving the room and Johnny left the room before I did. There had been a rainstorm and as I left the room I slid down the stairs. I hurt my back. And I screamed because I didn't know what had happened to me and I was in pain.

'He came running back to help me, carried me to my room and got me medical attention.'

Moss was appearing as a witness for Depp during a stage of the trial known as rebuttal, where he gets to challenge Heard's allegations.

Moss was at the height of her fame when she began her intense relationship with Depp who was a teen idol thanks to his roles in films like Edward Scissorhands.

Both of them were notorious for their drink and drug use and became known as the 'chicest, druggiest couple in LA.'

Among their favorite hangouts was the Viper Room in Los Angeles, which Depp owned, where they partied with the likes of Jared Leto, Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron.

Moss later said that she 'cried for years' over the breakup, after which her drug use escalated and eventually led her to rehab.

After the testimony, a source close to Heard said, 'So Johnny Depp didn't abuse Kate Moss. That makes him 1 for 2 in the abuse column.

'But, to date, he's 0 for 1 in the courtroom on the central issue in this case back when he lost the same exact case in England. And when the jury deliberates over the singular issue in this case - whether Amber Heard can exercise her right of Freedom of Speech - he'll be 0 for 2, no matter how much his lawyers try to distract and divert the jury's attention.'

Dr. Shannon Curry - an expert witness for Depp - said that there were 'clear indications' that Heard was suffering from a personality disorder despite the actress' own expert denying it

Dr. Shannon Curry - an expert witness for Depp - said that there were 'clear indications' that Heard was suffering from a personality disorder despite the actress' own expert denying it

Depp's forensic psychologist insisted that Amber Heard does suffer from a personality disorder after being recalled to the stand on Wednesday. 

Dr. Shannon Curry - an expert witness for Depp - said that there were 'clear indications' that Heard was suffering from a personality disorder despite the actress' own expert denying it.

In her previous testimony Dr. Curry diagnosed Heard with borderline personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder.

Heard called her own forensic psychologist as an expert witness, Dr. Dawn Hughes, who rejected Dr. Curry's claims and said that Heard was suffering from PTSD.

Dr. Curry said that Dr. Hughes used checklists in her analysis that are 'not appropriate for forensic settings' and are 'easily exploited'.

One example was the checklist given to Heard by Dr. Hughes about PTSD which is the most frequently claimed and feigned' mental trauma.

According to Dr. Curry, giving Heard a checklist of the symptoms was like 'teaching (her) all the little nuances to get that diagnosis'

Heard 'ticked most of the items' which led to her being diagnosed by Dr. Hughes with PTSD.

Dr. Curry said: 'A person being evaluated will have a major incentive to benefit the outcome of their case.

'You always approach examinations with a healthy dose of skepticism.'

Early Wednesday morning, fans continue to wait in long lines to get wristbands for the Depp-Heard trial

Early Wednesday morning, fans continued to wait in long lines to get wristbands for the trial.

They passed the time trying to sleep wrapped up in blankets on the ground, playing cards, or chatting with new friends.

Early arrivals bided their time across the street before rushing across the courthouse lawn to secure a place in line when the Fairfax County Sheriff's Department finally allowed them on the premises.

Some, still in their sweatpants, did their makeup as 7am approached - the moment when sheriff's deputies hand out the wristbands that are the fans' prized tickets into the courtroom.

After all the wristbands are distributed, those who didn't get in traipse to the back of the courthouse, hoping for the next best thing: a glimpse of Johnny Depp when he arrives for court.
