On May 13, 2022, Richard Moore, orthopedic surgeon, was called to the stand to discuss the severed finger of Johnny Depp. While the actor claimed that it was Amber Heard who cut off his finger after an argument, the actress for her part assured that her former husband had injured himself by throwing a phone against the wall. For the doctor, Johnny Depp could not have had his limb severed because of a shard of glass from a bottle of vodka as he claims.
“There was no shard of glass on the affected finger, nor on the hand,” assured the professional in his testimony. Richard Moore still claimed that he was not the specialist who treated the famous actor at the time of his injury. “Given the location of the hand at the time of the incident, his nail would have been damaged by the impact. Which is not the case here”, continued Richard Moore. A version which is therefore far from that put forward by David Kipper, Johnny Depp’s doctor.
