“Did there come a time, Ms. Barkin, when Mr. Depp acted in a way that was out of control with you?” the attorney asked.
“Yes,” Barkin replied. She then related a situation that highlighted Depp’s behavior. “Mr. Depp threw a wine bottle across the room, the hotel room in one instance in Las Vegas while we were shooting ‘Fear and Loathing.'”
Barkin then confirmed the wine bottle did not hit her or anyone else, but was not able to recall if the bottle was full or empty, according to the video. (RELATED: Random Americans Pour Down Thunderous Boos On Amber Heard)
Upon further questioning, Barkin describee Depp’s supposed jealousy.
“He’s just a jealous man, controlling. ‘Where are you going? Who are you going with? What did you do last night?'” she said.
Barkin then described a particular moment that displayed the allegedly abusive dynamic in their relationship. “I had a scratch on my back once that got him very, very angry because he insisted it came from me having sex with a person who wasn’t him,” Barkin said.
