The legal drama between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp continues and the latest testimony from the Pirates of the Caribbean star may have convinced more people to take his side. The petition asking Warner Bros. to remove Heard from Aquaman 2 has just reached over 400,000 signatures following Depp's graphic description of how his ex-wife managed to sever his finger.

A new report from The Daily Mail shared a recording of Depp explaining how his finger was partially severed because of a fight with Heard. According to the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald star, his ex had thrown multiple bottles at him, one of which hit his hand and injured his finger.

"My hand was resting on the marble of the bar… The first bottle went just past my ear. The second one was a larger bottle, and it smashed into the bar…" Depp said before stating that "the tip of the finger was severed" and "all the bone was completely shattered."
