The written testimony of Amber Heard’s old friend, Raquel “Rocky” Pennington, against Johnny Depp. The jury was shown a pre-recorded statement from her ex-husband Josh Drew in 2019. Allegedly, Heard had called Pennington and Drew on May 21, 2016, when police were called to the penthouse of Johnny Depp’s East Colombia Building over possible domestic violence.

Both Pennington and Drew testified on Wednesday (May 18th) about their memories of the incident and other tantrums that the then-58-year-old actor alleged. However, Drew added that he did not see Depp physically abusing Heard.

Raquel Pennington’s ex-husband, Joshua Drew, also talked about the time he lived in Depp’s apartment (circa 2016).

What did Amber Heard’s witnesses say about Johnny Depp?

In his testimony, Drew noted Depp’s generosity to his friends. He went on to say that even when the actor offered to pay his rent, he refused. Pennington’s ex-husband said Depp got angry with Heard in front of him but never hit him.

Joshua Drew then reflected on the events of May 21, 2016. Drew said he heard “a big bang” first. He later discovers that Depp has a wine bottle that he reportedly threw at the door of the former couple’s apartment. Depp and Heard’s former neighbor also said that the Pirates of the Caribbean star yelled a lot.

“He walked in, immediately saw me, and set off for me, screaming, cursing and spitting in my face,” Drew said.

Josh Drew also noticed Elizabeth Marz, another acquaintance of Amber Heard, who allegedly went upstairs to hide from Depp, according to his testimony. Drew, on the other hand, stated that Depp did not feel threatened because the security guards were there. Drew alleges that Heard contacted him two months prior to his deposition after being out of touch for nearly two years.

Meanwhile, Drew’s ex-wife, Raquel “Rocky” Pennington, claims she received a text from Heard on the night of the alleged shootout. Pennington also claimed that he is currently putting himself between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp to protect his friend. She also said that she saw Depp injure Heard’s face and allegedly smash various items in her apartment.

Johnny Depp has several penthouse apartments in his Los Angeles building.

Almost all of Amber Heard’s witnesses admitted that at some point during the trial, Johnny Depp lived in the Eastern Columbia Building penthouses. Heard’s sister Whitney Henriquez and friends Raquel Pennington, Josh Drew and iO Tillett Wright are among the witnesses.

Johnny Depp has five high-rise penthouses in the Eastern Columbia Building in Los Angeles, according to Architectural Digest. The actor is said to have bought his first penthouse in 2002 and more lofts when the building was renovated in 2007.

Unfortunately, Johnny Depp listed every loft on the market after Amber Heard filed for divorce and got a $7 million settlement. The lofts are said to contain a total of nine bedrooms and 14 bathrooms. These units are about 11,500 square feet, according to real estate agent Kevin Dees of Partners Trust, who spoke to the Wall Street Journal in 2016.

The duplexes were among Depp’s million-dollar lofts, one of which was advertised for $2.5 million in 2016. According to The New York Post, the actor sold all of his lofts for about $13 million in 2017. The 58-year-old Kentucky native reportedly spent $7.2 million for the four of them at the time of the purchase.
