Pictures of poo claimed to be Amber Heard’s and found in Johnny Depp’s bed were shown to the court during day six of the actor’s high court libel trial.

Depp is suing The Sun’s publishers News Group Newspapers (NGN) over an April 2018 column by the paper’s executive editor Dan Wootton referring to him as a ‘wife beater’.

Tuesday marked day six of the libel case and photographs of human faeces were shown to the court, with Depp’s housekeeper at his penthouse in the Eastern Columbia building in LA, who had come across the defecated bed, giving evidence.

Hilda Vargas told the court that she had taken photographs of the faeces, after being left ‘horrified’ and ‘disgusted’.

The pictures, which are too graphic for Metro.co.uk, show faecal matter that would be categorised as number 2 on the Bristol Stool Chart on a light blue bedsheet.

Ms Vargas said that she believed the faeces in the bed was from a human – ruling out that it could have come from the two dogs, Pistol and Boo, owned by Depp and Heard, as the pets couldn’t reach the bed on their own.

Ms Vargas confirmed that both dogs had a number of accidents on the floor, but said she had ‘never known either dog to defecate in the bed – and that neither could ‘jump on to the bed on their own’.

Sasha Wass QC suggested to Ms Vargas that ‘because you had never seen or had any experience of the dogs defecating in the bed, you formed the view that it was human faeces that was in the bed’.

Ms Vargas said: ‘Yes, because of the size,’ and told the court she arrived at the penthouse at around 3pm, adding: ‘Those faeces were fresh … from the night or from the early morning.’

Ms Wass said: ‘I think you were angry having found the faeces in the bed.’

Ms Vargas said she was and thought it showed a ‘lack of respect’.

She said she told Mr Depp’s estate manager, Kevin Murphy, and agreed with Ms Wass that she ‘took photographs of the faeces to prove to him that this had happened and to justify why you were entitled to be angry.’

Ms Vargas continued: ‘Because, after so many years working for this family, I had never encountered that type of thing.’

In his written statement, Depp accused Heard or ‘one of her friends’ of defecating in the couple’s marital bed back in 2016. Depp claims Heard described it as a ‘harmless prank’.

The court heard Depp had been sent a picture of the defecated bed by his assistant and jokingly replied calling his wife ‘Amber Turd’.

A rep for Heard has denied Depp’s claims, insisting that accusations the actress or her friends were responsible for the defecation incident are ‘completely untrue’.

‘This accusation is completely untrue… As the evidence in court showed, Mr Depp discussed committing such a prank for years beforehand and it plays to his lavatorial… sense of humour,’ their statement read.

‘Mr Depp’s team is trying to grab headlines… and distract from the serious, central issue of this case: the perpetration of domestic violence.’

NGN’s defence in the ongoing libel case relies of 14 allegations of domestic violence made against Depp, which he denies.

Depp has accused Heard of ‘attacking or abusing him physically and verbally’. Heard has denied all allegations made against her.

Day six of the trial saw texts sent from Depp to his doctor read out in court, where he calls Heard an ‘evil and vindictive c***’ and accuses her of ‘using him for success and fame’.

The texts were sent following an alleged row between the former married couple in Australia in March 2015 that resulted in the top of Depp’s middle finger being severed off.

The trial continues.
