Scoop: Depp cut off fingertip during fight with Heard

Even TMZ is posting a disclaimer about its photos of Johnny Depp’s bloody finger.

“Warning: Gruesome Photo” is the banner the website splashed across the screen Monday of an image that the site says is an exhibit in Amber Heard’s domestic violence case against the 53-year-old actor.

According to TMZ, Depp accidentally cut his finger on glass, allegedly smashing bottles during an argument with Heard at a villa in Australia last year.

This is even more grotesque: After, he allegedly dipped the digit in paint, and wrote “Billy Bob” on a mirror in blood and paint.

That would be Billy Bob Thornton. Depp accused Heard of cheating on him with the actor, her costar in the still to be released movie “London Fields.”

People reports that a rep for Thornton says he “absolutely did not have an affair with Amber.”

The graphic photo surfaced just a few days after TMZ posted an intense cell phone video in which Depp is out of control, yelling and slamming cabinets during an apparent fight with Heard. TMZ also reported that Depp’s representatives called the video “heavily edited.”

Meanwhile, a restraining order hearing in Los Angeles Superior Court related to the couple’s divorce case is scheduled for Aug. 17.


Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s publicity stunt over the weekend really didn’t seem to work all that well.

The actor, writer, director — and busker — set up his drum kit and blasted away on a Los Angeles subway platform in an effort to promote his production company’s new project seeking submissions of videos from “performers of any kind” doing their thing in ordinary settings.

Most folks walked by the actor, who’s playing Edward Snowden in Oliver Stone’s upcoming biopic.

However, one person did take note, particularly of the actor’s dapper suit, saying, “You look like Pee Wee Herman a little bit.”
