“What’s happened?” – Hurd asks her husband, while he kicks the closet, shouts curses (motherfucker, “bastard”) and slams the doors of the closet.
“Nothing happened in the morning, you know that. <...> I just woke up in the morning and you were so nice and kind. We didn’t even quarrel this morning, I just apologized, “says actress Deppu.
“Something happened to YOU this morning,” the actor replied loudly and smashed the dishes with force. – [Поэтому] I do not think so”.
Depp then pours wine into a glass and says, “Do you want to see me crazy? I’ll give you crazy. ” After that, he pays attention to the camera and grabs the phone.

The actor said that at that moment he “lost control” of his emotions. “I don’t know what happens to others, but I’ve had an experience in my life where I’ve sometimes lost complete control of my emotions, and that’s okay,” Depp said.
The actor also stressed that he did not use force against Hurd, but only “attacked a couple of closets.” “I didn’t try to intimidate Miss Hurd,” he added. “If she was intimidated, would she shoot?” If she was scared to death, why didn’t she leave? ”
Depp, in turn, presented a court audio recording where Hurd admits to hitting him. At the same time, in the recording, the actress says that she did not beat him with her fist, but simply “hit” him a little.
