Malcolm Connolly Testimony
He has traveled with Johnny and Amber Heard to Japan, Germany, Hicksville, and Australia. He often traveled places ahead of his employer and shared that his main concern for travel were locations, transport, local security, drivers, and making sure all that was in line before Johnny gets there.
Malcolm shared in his testimony, “Jerry Judge would have traveled with Johnny in Australia on arrival, I would’ve picked him up at the airport as we do. Take him to the house where accommodation was staying and I would have peeled off the left at that went back to my apartment”.
Malcolm added further, “Johnny would have been in maybe it could be up to a week for you know a makeup costume before any shooting stuff and which time you give me a time to run around some locations the studio check out the studio locations as well as be around for if Johnny wants to go for dinner at night anywhere I would check out these places as well”.
Talking about the incident in Australia, in 2015, the thing that stood out for him was Johnny lost his finger. He and his security team lived nearly 40 minutes away from where Johnny was staying. He explained that when he arrived at Johnny’s place he noticed there was an SUV. As he approached he heard shouting and screaming when he entered he witnessed screaming and shouting. But, all he could see was Johnny.
Malcolm then asked Johnny to go from that place as a part of his job. After two to five minutes Malcolm got him out but Amber appeared from somewhere screaming and berating him.
Johnny again came out of his car and walked into that place again and the screaming started. This time he pulled him out of the place with force and got him inside the car and locked the door. Malcolm took him to his apartment.
Malcolm explained Johnny’s finger was a mess and he could see the bone. When the doctor arrived, he was taken to the hospital for the examination given the condition of his finger.
Speaking about Amber Heard, Malcolm explained him as “crazy” repeatedly and “fierce”.
Malcolm testified from his home in the United Kingdom, saying, “At the beginning [it was] all lovey-dovey. Everything was great. The honeymoon period was on, and yeah it was good. It was great to see Johnny happy again. Amber was lovely, charming – as she usually is – and good as gold.”
He added, “Amber started to change. Amber started getting a bit more feisty and demanding. I could see that Amber wanted to wear the pants in this relationship. That was pretty obvious,”. Hee said, adding that Amber “could get a frosty at the drop of hat.” He said that he observed Depp “getting quieter” as Amber “started getting grumpy” over time. However, he said that he never saw the two engage in a fight physically.
