JONHNY DEPP sent a message hoping Amber Heard's "rotting corpse was decomposing in the trunk" of a car, a court was told.
Depp’s childhood friend, Isaac Baruch, admitted that the message, sent in October 2016, "was written" as the actor's multi-million-dollar lawsuit against ex-wife Amber rumbled on.
The Pirates Of The Caribbean star, 58, is suing Heard, 35, over a 2018 Washington Post article in which she described herself as a “victim of sexual violence”.
He says her allegedly fake claims of abuse ruined his career and was designed to boost hers.
On Wednesday, the jury was told texts were sent between Depp and Mr Baruch.
They were sent two weeks before the pal had to move out of a Los Angeles penthouse, where he was being allowed to live rent free.
