On the stand on Wednesday, Johnny Depp denied ever taking eight to ten MDMA pills at once, claiming that if he had, he would have died.

On Wednesday, Johnny Depp returned to the stand in the final week of his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, 36. Johnny Depp is suing Heard for $50 million over an op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post in 2018 about surviving domestic violence.

Although Depp was not named, the public and media assumed it was him. Depp has denied the address.

The actor was also questioned about some contentious texts involving Heard, which the 58-year-old Kentucky native denied sending. Heard’s songs were “ridiculous, humiliating, ludicrous, painful, savage, unbelievably brutal, cruel, and all false,” he said.

What did Amber Heard testify against Johnny Depp regarding the consumption of 10 pills of MDMA?

Amber Heard tested that Johnny Depp took eight to ten MDMA pills at once in March 2015. Heard claimed the two got into a fight, which resulted in Depp assaulting her with an alcohol bottle and slicing his finger off with a broken bottle, though she admitted the sequence of events was not necessarily true.

“Have you ever taken eight to ten MDMA pills at once?” a lawyer questioned Depp.

“No, ma’am, I haven’t,” Depp said, smiling.

In his testimony, the Pirates of the Caribbean star stated that consuming such a large amount of Ecstacy would almost certainly result in death.

Meanwhile, Amber Heard’s former nurse Erin Falati tested that she “ingested mushrooms and MDMA simultaneously while also consuming alcohol.”

What is a fatal MDMA dose?

Excessive MDMA use can cause increased thirst, dehydration, sweating, chills from hypothermia, heatstroke, cramps, seizures, and other side effects. It can also result in the failure of vital organs such as the liver, kidneys, and heart.

However, fatal factors may vary depending on an individual’s tolerance level for the drug, the purity of the MDMA, a pre-existing condition, the climate or temperature of the location where the drug was consumed, the individual’s hydration level, and other factors.

Other significant causes of death from MDMA overdose may include “heatstroke, serotonin toxicity, and water intoxication,” according to a study published in 2006 by UK researchers AP Hall and JA Henry. As a result, the amount of MDMA that could kill a person would vary on an individual basis.
