Los Angeles | Hollywood star Johnny Depp’s lawyer Laura Wasser has filed new legal documents in which she claims that his estranged wife Amber Heard cried, yelled and laughed as she refused to testify on Saturday, August 6.

Heard was supposed to be grilled by Johnny Depp’s lawyers in a deposition on Saturday.

Though she spent about 10 hours at a law office, The Rum Diary actress never entered the deposition room, reported Aceshowbiz.

While her lawyer claimed that the 30-year-old beauty was ready to answer questions but was never called, Depp’s lawyer said that the deposition never happened because Heard herself refused to enter the room despite multiple attempts throughout the day.

According to new legal documents filed on Tuesday, August 9 by Laura Wasser who represents 53-year-old Depp, Heard even broke down in tears as she refused to testify.

Wasser stated that she could quite clearly see Heard hysterically crying and pacing in her separate conference room, or screaming and yelling at times and laughing at others.

Wasser added that the actress appeared manic and irrational and her counsel tried to reason with her throughout the day.

Heard also failed to turn over documents already requested by Depp’s legal team, which now wants Heard to be prohibited from testifying when the case goes to trial.

Heard showed up 90 minutes late for the Saturday deposition.

Her team said that she was ready to be deposed at the time and there was nothing preventing Johnny’s counsel from commencing during the deposition time.
