Johnny Depp’s doctor has shared details about the actor’s treatment after ex-wife Amber Heard managed to cut off his finger in an explosive fight in 2015, reported People.
In a statement taped on February 22 and filed in a Fairfax, Virginia court on Monday, Dr. David Kipper shared that he did not know how Depp’s finger had been injured when he treated the wound in March 2015 in Australia.
The doctor was asked in the statement about a text message exchange between him and Depp in which the actor had said he cut his finger. To this he said, “I believe he said that, yes.”
Kipper also shared that Depp had told an ER doctor that he had cut his finger with a knife.
He also stated categorically that he did not see any injuries on Heard at the time, and that a chef found the tip of Depp’s severed finger in the kitchen area.
According to Kipper’s testimony, he noticed broken glass in the former couple’s home, but didn’t know where it came from. He also said that “there was blood around the house.”
Depp has previously said his finger was cut off when his ex-wife Heard “threw a big glass vodka bottle at him,” which hit his finger against a countertop, breaking it and ultimately severing it.
Depp previously stated: “I had to have three surgeries to reconstruct my finger and I contracted MRSA three times. I was afraid of losing my finger, my arm and my life.”
