Johnny Depp testified for a second day on Wednesday in an attempt to clear his name from Amber Heard's "diabolical" abuse allegations. The 58-year-old actor revealed new details about his and Heard's tumultuous four-year relationship and painted her as the instigator. Depp, who is suing his ex-wife for defamation, also gave (in graphic detail) his version of what happened to his "severed" finger in Australia.

"Ms. Heard, in her frustration, in her rage, in her anger, she would strike. It could begin with a slap, it could begin with a shove, it could begin with throwing a TV remote at my head, it could be throwing a glass of wine in my face," Depp said on the stand. The actor later claimed Heard "has a need for conflict, she has a need for violence. It erupts out of nowhere."

The Pirates of the Caribbean star explained that he noticed Heard's behavior changing a year into their relationship.

"I was suddenly just wrong about everything," he said. "There was nowhere to fit a word in. It was sort of a rapid fire, endless parade of insults. [Amber was] looking at me like I was a fool and I was having difficulty in my mind, of course, and in my heart of dealing with that sort of barrage."

Depp said Heard used "ammunition" she learned about his past to "verbally decimate me" and "send me into a kind of tailspin of confusion, depression." In order to deescalate, Depp said he would attempt to "remove" himself from the situation, similar to when he was a child and his mother was abusive.

"If she didn't allow me to walk away, there were times I would just go and lock myself in the bathroom or anywhere that she couldn't get into. That happened constantly over the years," he said.

When fights would escalate, Depp said it seemed like Heard had "pure hatred for me." If he stayed to argue, the fight would "escalate into violence and oftentimes, it did."
